Biography

Von Oberengstrimgen

Parents: Heinrich Albrecht b 1671 & Ann Eliz Folsom b 1680

Records of the Port of Philadelphia list Johannes Albrecht and his wife Anna Barbara (maiden name not listed) as Palatine passengers of the "Johnson Galley" of London, David Crockett, Commander, which arrived from Rotterdam on September 18, 1732. [1] The names of this family were included on List 21A. Their children were listed as:

  1. MEN OVER 16 YEARS WOMEN ABOVE 14
    • Albrecht Albrecht
    • Johannes Albrecht
    • Anna Albrecht
  2. BOYS UNDER 16 GIRLS UNDER 14
    • Jacob Albrecht
    • Matelina Albrecht
    • Lodawick Albrecht
    • Barbara Albrecht
    • Christian Albrecht

The ages of the five children on arrival were: Matelina-16 (she was mistakenly listed as "under 14"), Barbara-13, Christian-6, Jacob-5, and Lodawick-10 months who was born November 11, 1731 in Ruttenberg, Germany.

Since the old Bible records showed that the Pennsylvania ancestors lived in Berks County, the research deals mainly with this section of the state. Berks County was not established until 1752. It is made up from parts of Philadelphia, Chester and Lancaster Counties. Johannes settled in that part of Lancaster County that was taken into Berks County. The earliest records were land grants (Lancaster County) in 1740, 1741 and 1743:

Pennsylvania Archives, Volume XXIV:
John Albrecht, 100 acres, June 20, 1740
John Albrecht, 100 acres, June 3, 1741
John Albrecht, 25 acres, Feb. 8, 1743

This section of Berks County was the western part which included Bern Township where, the records show, most of the Berks County Albright families lived. Bern Township originally extended from a point a few miles west of Reading westward to the present line of Schuylkill County.

Continuing the search with the aid of Edward Hocker [2], the author has been able to prove that the Jacob and Ludwig Albright who left Pennsylvania and settled in North Carolina, are identical with the Jacob and Ludawick who are listed as the sons of Johannes and Ann Albright found in Vol. I of Strassburger's book.

This Johannes Albrecht is NOT a son of Hendrick/Heinrich Albrecht and Elizabeth Volland of Albany County, New York. This information is from Claribel Albright McClain in her additional findings on the Albrecht families. [3]

According to Claribel in her book of 1950, the records of the North Carolina Albrights were preserved in two old German Bibles which the brothers took with them when they left Berks County, Pennsylvania. The Ludwig Albright family bible was kept in the hands of the Dr. D. H. Montgomery family and that of the Jacob Albright Family remained in the Durant Hatch Albright family.

From Claribel Albright McClain [3] :

The disposing of the John Albrecht estate began in 1752. In that year, a deed is recorded which says that John Albright, Lancaster County, is bound to John Foust, the same county, in the sum of 280 pounds to carry out provisions of a deed dated 6 June 1744, whereby John Albright and his wife, Ana Barbara agree they will sign a deed transferring 100 acres of land to John Foust which land John Albright now owns. This 100-acre tract was without a doubt the land grant surveyed to John Albrecht of Lancaster County in 1740 or 1741.

In a document (dated 4 December 1752) taken from Berks County Deed Books, Johannes Ebler and Nicholas Soder, both of Bern Township, affirm that they saw John Albright (since deceased) sign the deed of 6 June 1744. In the deed of 1752 which follows, the different members of the family are listed:

Deed Book A-3 27, 12 December 1752, Barbara Albracht, Bern Township, late in the County of Lancaster, now in the County of Berks, widow of John Albracht, deceased, together with Christian Albracht, same township, yeoman; Jacob Albracht, same township, wheelwright; Lodawick Albracht, Alsace Township, Berks County, wheelwright; they being the three sons of John Albracht; Philip Foust, Bern Township, yeoman, and his wife Mary, one of the daughters of the said John Albracht; and Judith Albracht, another daughter of John Albracht. The mother, sons and daughters constituting the parties of the first part, transfer to John Foust, Bern Township, yeoman, intermarried with Barbara, the other of the daughters of John Albracht, the 100 acres of land mentioned in the deed of 6 June 1744, this being the land in Bern Township on which John Albracht then lived. It is described as being situated on the west side of the Schuylkill, extending along the river for 335 perches. There is a statement that 100 pounds has been paid to John's widow, Barbara, with full consent of her children. All the heirs confirm the transfer of the farm to John Foust which was then in his actual possession. In the body of the deed, the name of Philip Foust's Wife is given as Mary, daughter of John Albracht, but she signed her name to the deed as Magdalen and an explanation says she was called Mary in the deed.

In 1761 and 1763, there were two more deeds disposing of the John Albrecht estate:

Deed Book A-3 362. This deed covers disposition of a farm of 112 acres in Bern Township which John Albrecht had acquired in 1741 by a grant of the Proprietaries of Pennsylvania. The heirs united in placing a valuation upon the tract, and Christian Albrecht accepted it at this valuation, paying each of the other heirs 19 pounds and 7s. Dated 17 November 1761.
Deed Book A-3 137, 1762. Acknowledged 20 January 1763. Anna Barbara Albrecht, widow and administratrix of John Albrecht, deceased: Christian Albrecht, eldest son of John; Philip Foust and his wife, Magdalen, the latter a daughter of John Albrecht; Jacob Heck, yeoman, and his wife, Judith, a daughter of John Albrecht; confirm to Hans (John) Foust 25 acres in Bern Township, which the Proprietaries of Pennsylvania had granted to John Albrecht 18 January 1743, the consideration being payment of 5 pounds to Anna Barbara, the widow; 4 pounds to Christian Albrecht; 2 pounds to Jacob Albrecht; 2 pounds to Philip Foust and his wife Magdalen, and 2 pounds to Jacob Heck and his wife, Judith. It is explained that Hans Foust to whom the property was transferred was the husband of Barbara, daughter of John Albrecht.
