Researching Mary Sutton wife of Nicholas Albertson early 1600s

+3 votes

I have traced my acestors back to Nicholas Albertson born cica 1616 and landed in Scituate, Plymouth Colony current day Massachussets in 1636.  Most sources I could find have his wife listed as Mary Sutton. Some say she was the daughter of Sarah Tilden and George Sutton - but they didn't have a daughter named Mary and the dates don't match. Here I see her listed as the daughter of John Sutton and Julia Ann (Little) Sutton but when I research them it says their daughter Mary married a John Fitch Any idea where I can validate her information? Thank you!

What an interesting challenge! In addition to the problems you listed above, I have read that Mary Sutton was, in fact, the wife of Alfred Albertson, not Nicholas "The Swede" Albeson.

Is there any help to be had in "The Suttons of England and North Carolina " by Marjorie Elizabeth Sutton Oliver?


A tidbit:

George moved his family to North Carolina on or about 1688. A paper in the Massachusetts Archives states : "I Joseph Sutton of Corralinah doe Testify that is the yeare 1671 my mother Sarah Sutton did Receive in Corralinah from the hands of Caleb Lambe the sum of five pounds in English Goods sent with a Bill of Ladeing which five pounds was in full of a Legacy given by my grandfather Timothy haterly and paid or sent by my Oncle Mr. Joseph Tildens Executrix : he the said Joseph Tilden being appointed to adminnester to the estate of Mr. hatherley : I say that I witnes and Testify that this five pound was payed and received on the accoumpt abovesaid : In witness whereof I have heeronto sett my hand this 23rd of May 1673 Witnessed pr me James Cudworth Joseph Sutton (Plymouth Colony Deeds, Vol. 3, pt. 2, p. 320). -------------------- George was one of Nathaniel Tilden's seven servants accompanying the family on the Hercules. -------------------- Following the Quaker persecution in Mass., George Sutton and his wife, Sarah, moved to Perquimans County in the Colony of Carolina. He died there April 12, 1669, leaving two sons, Nathaniel and Joseph. They left many descendants who have spread out over North Carolina and Virginia. (The Suttons of Caroline County, VA by T. Dix Sutton)

First let me say I have been working on the Albertson/Alberson family tree for 15 years now and can find no connection for Albert Albesen to the Albertson/Alberson family.

 There are no records for his marriage nor names of any children.

 As far as Albert Albertson from N.C. goes I have traced him back from N.C. to Virginia and then to mass. where he more then likely teamed up with his life long friend Nicholson.

90% of the info you get from family tree web sites is wrong, you need to do your research yourself.
