And I found this...... (This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Surnames: ALBERTSON GOSBEY Classification: biography Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.albertson/419/mb.ashx Message Board Post: MANY PEOPLE THINK THAT ALBERT ALBERTSON AND MARY GOSBEY WERE MARRIED IN NORTH CAROLINA BECAUSE THE INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR MARRIAGE DATE IS FOUND IN A NORTH CAROLINA RECORD "BIRTHS, DEATHS, AND MARRIAGES IN BERKELEY." BERKELEY LATER BECAME PERQUIMANS COUNTY NORTH CAROLINA. MY RESEARCH LEADS ME TO BELIEVE ALBERT WAS MARRIED IN SURRY COUNTY VIRGINIA AND MOVED TO NORTH CAROLINA IN 1676 AT THE EARLIEST AND BEFORE JUNE 1677 AT THE LATEST.
ALBERT ALBERTSON MARRIED MARY GOSBEY DECEMBER 20, 1668. (FROM "HATHAWAY'S REGISTER" VOLUME 3 PAGE 200.) THE EARLIEST RECORDS I HAVE FOUND FOR ALBERT ALBERTSON IN SURRY COUNTY VIRGINIA WERE ON THE TAX RECORDS FOR LAWNE'S CREEKE PARISH FOR 1668 AND 1669.
SURRY COUNTY COURT RECORDS DATED MAY 3, 1670 (PAGE 364) SHOW THAT ALBERT ALBERTSON WAS RENTING SUNKEN MARSH, A PLANTATION AND MILL, FROM THE ESTATE OF AN ORPHAN, WILLIAM HARRIS.
ALBERT ALBERTSON IS FOUND IN THE SURRY COUNTY COURT RECORDS 11 TIMES STARTING FROM 1668 THROUGH JANUARY 26, 1675/76 WHEN IT APPEARS HE WAS EVICTED FROM SUNKEN MARSH FOR BEING BEHIND ON HIS RENT.
THE LAST MENTION OF THIS FAMILY WAS MARY ALBERTSON, WIFE OF ALBERT, IN THE SURRY COUNTY COURT RECORDS DATED MARCH 28,1676 (PAGE 122). This would seem to indicate that Albert was in Virginia as early as 1668 where he rented a share in a mill and plantation, It is also said that he married there in 1668 but as yet I have not found the records other then the ones I will show. And he was in N.C. As early as 1680. In order to follow the trail further back we need to follow the people with whom he was closely connected, and that would be the families of Christopher Nicholson, and George Sutton. We are able to follow the Nicholsons all the way back to Marblehead, Mass. where Edmund Nicholson (father of Christopher) owned a fishing boat and stage, and was there as early as 1648. We also can trace the family of George Sutton to Scituate, Mass. from the ship list: “Hotten:s Original Persons”: "Of all such persons as embarked themselves in the good ship called the Hercules, of Sandwicxh, of the burthen of 200 tons, John Witherley, master, and therein transported from Sandwich to the plantation called New England in America; with the cerificates from the ministers where they last dwelt of their conversation, and conformity to the orders and discipline of the church, and that they had taken the oath of allegiance and supremacy. (The certificates, all dated February and March, 1634.)" Sutton George, Tilden servant Sutton Symon, Hatch servant Tilden Nathaniel of Tenterden, Yeoman Tilden Lydia, wife Tilden Joseph, son Tilden Thomas, son Tilden Stephen, son Tilden Marie, daughter Tilden Sara, daughter Tilden Judeth, daughter Tilden Lidia, daughter
They went to Scituate, Mass. where Sutton married Sarah the dau. of Nathaniel Tilden. So now we can put both of these families in the same general area, but town records do not show Albert Albertson living in either of these places. Next we will turn to the court records of Salem, Mass. where where we find: “Records and Files of the Quarterly Courts of Essex County Massachusetts, Vol. II 1656-1662” pg.392. “Writ, dated June 17, 1662, signed byHillyard Veren,* for the court, and served by Samuell Archard,* marshal of Salem. A1ixnder Jones testified that he was shipped on board the Ann, on Jan. 18, 1661, for 4li. 10s per month or 450 pounds of suger, which for five months and ten days, amounted to 23li. 12s. Also for his service, he was to receive 32s. a month, which makes 5li. 18s. for the whole time. Albert Albertson,* Waliter Coulston,* James Major,* Joshua Steadman,* Robert (his mark) Renales, Gorg (his mark) Bonom, George Benson,* Thomas Hutchinson,* and Willim (his mark), Soler testified that “Alexander Jones hath deported himselfe quietly honestly & oiually since his coming among Vs.” (* his Autograph) By looking at other court cases I have found that several of the men that testified with Albert were seamen and this makes it quite likely that Albert was as well. Looking at the next page I also find that the Ship Ann was docked at Marblehead at the time. The fact that I do not find him listed as a householder is not a surprise do to the fact that single men could not live alone by law as I see by other court cases. This puts an Albert Albertson, George Sutton, Nicolas Albesen, and Christopher Nicholson all in the same area in 1662. At this point I would like to add that people say George Suttons son John is the one spoken of in Scitauite but I do not think so. I find on the ship Dilligent (left June of 1638 from Ipswich, Suffolk, Eng., arrived August 10, 1638 Boston, Ma.) in 1638 a John and Elizabeth Sutton and children, ( John Sutton, Mrs. Elizabeth Sutton, Hannah Sutton, John Sutton, Jr., Nathaniel Sutton, and Elizabeth Sutton. On 1/Jan./1661 in Scituate, Mass. a John Sutton married Elizabbeth House. Taken from “History of Scituate, Massachusetts” by Samuel Deane: GEORGE SUTTON
had lands laid out in 1638, on the 1st. Herring brook. His house was near John Daman's at the south-west end of Green field lane, where it unites with the Drift way. He married Sarah, the wife ( should read Daughter ) of Elder Nathaniel Tilden, 1641. Children, (and this is where I believe the two Sutton are confused.) John 1642, Lydia 1646, Sarah 1648, (died early,) Sarah 1650, Elizabeth 1653.
John purchased Conihassett lands, south of Booth hill and near Bound brook. His house was near the Brook, a half mile south of that hill. He was an Ensign in Philip's war with Capt. Williams. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel House, 1661. I do not believe this John Sutton was the son of George Sutton or you would find his name on the list of "allowed and approved inhabitants," to whom portions of the common lands were assigned, by the joint committee of the Court and the Town in 1673. I see no Suttons listed and had his father been George Sutton he should have been listed as he had land in 1638. Also John names none of his sons George where as in the N.C. Suttons the name carries on. Another thing is that the Albertson, Sutton, and Nicholson families were all Quakers in N.C. and having Quaker feelings in Mass. in the 1600’s was a dangerous thing to have as we also see in the court records. Because of this I believe they all moved to Virginia, then to North Carolina where they could live in peace and practice their religious beliefs freely.
