appear. on the rec. and Judah, 25 Jan. 1703. Possib. the name has degenerat.
to Ensworth.

    AKERS, THOMAS, Charlestown, had Thomas, Sarah, and Rachel, d.
prob. 1651, leav. wid. Priscilla, wh. m. "old William Knapp," and outliv.
him. Thomas, the s. had been gone many yrs. to the wars in Ireland,
as his sis. Rachel testif. 22 Aug. 1659, and had not been heard of
for more than ten yrs.

    ALBEE or ALBY, BENJAMIN, Braintree 1641, freem. 18 May 1642,
had, unless the rec. be wrong, Hannah, b. 16 Aug. 1641; Lydia, 14 Apr.
1642; rem. to Medfield 1649, there had Benjamin 1653; as it is said; certain.
Sarah, 11 Mar. 1654; and may have been of Mendon or Swanzey 1669;
most prob. the former. See Col. Rec. Vol. IV. pt. II. 434. Lydia, m. 30
Oct. 1658, Alexander Lovell; and Hannah m. 25 Mar. 1663, Samuel
Wight of M.
In his hist. disc. a. Braintree, Whitney prints this name Alber.
JOHN, Salem 1637, freem. 10 May 1643, d. 1690. He may have the sec.
let. of his name pervert. and possib. was f. of Samuel Abby, or Abbee.
JOHN, Braintree, lost a serv. Francis Brown by d. 1640, and may have
been the freem. of 1670, if Paige's reading of the last name in the MS.
of Vol. IV. 651 be more correct than the governm. print. copy of that
Vol. pt. II. p. 584. JOHN, Rehoboth, had Hannah, b. 10 Oct. 1673.

    ALBESON or ALLBERSON, JOHN, Yarmouth, perhaps s. of Nicholas,
m. 16 Mar. 1697, Elizabeth Folland, had Jeconia, b. 2 Jan. 1698, d. next
mo. and David, 1 Nov. 1699. NICHOLAS, Scituate 1636, disting. as
"the Swede," had ch. as tradit. goes, wh. he hims. bapt. but Deane found
on rec. nothing relat. to the man, exc. that, in Philip's war, the Ind.
burned his house, 20 May 1676, and the town voted a contrib. towards
rebuild. it.

JOHN, Portsmouth, R. I. 1655, was an Assist. 1671, and one of the
counc. appoint. by K. James II. for his Gov. Andros, 1687, as Hutch. I.
354 gives the list. Gladly would we learn more of so promin. a man,
ancest. of the Rev. John A. Albro, D. D. of Cambridge, and speak with
confid. if rec. would permit. Very reasona. may be the conject. that he
came, as a youth of 14 yrs. under charge of William Freeborne, in the
Francis from Ipswich, 1634, to Boston. Freeborne was, we kn. of Boston,
until the sad dissens. a. Mrs. Hutchinson, 1637, when he withdrew
in comp. of so many others with Gov. Coddington to purchase R. I.
What presumption may be drawn, from the mural tablet to Alborough in
the ch. of Stratford on Avon, whither the admir. of Shakespeare annual.
resort, that this R. I. fam. came from Warwicksh. will be various. determin.
by differ. jurors. Alborow's d. Susanna m. 3 Jan. 1694, John Anthony

Potter, and may therefore be thot. a sec. w. d. 19 Feb. 1696 in her 79th
