Records for Claribel McLain's book was taken in 1938 from (1) A.G. Albtight's book. (2) He, in turn, had taken his source from Sallie Stockard. (3) Vreelan Leonard's information led to the Additional findings for the supplement issued by Claribel McClain. (3) Shannon Albright then issued his two books which incorporated all the previous works. Through the benefit of Computer On-Line Search, there has been a rapid influx of information since these publications. However, almost all publications stem from these mighty fine works and much praise is given them for their dedication and devotion.

Claribel McClain made the following statement: "It is still hard to believe, however, that the tradition that Hendrick Albright of Albany County was the founder could exist so universally in North Carolina without some foundation. It is possible that a relationship did exist between Hendrick of Albany County, New York, and Johannes of Berks County, Pennsylvania, but since no records have been found proving such an assumption, we must consider only the actual records which are available at this time. The present research proves that Johannes Allbright of Berks County, Pennsylvania, was the father of Jacob and Ludwig and was the real founder of the North Carolina Albrights." Johannes (1797) was the first son of Hendrich and Hendrich Albright, Jr. (1716), was the sixth son. To add to the confusion, Hendrich, Jr. had a first son named Johannes who was born in 1749.

From the initional searches made of the Family, there have been tangles because the duplication of names. Examples of this is the names: Barbara, Johannes, Jacob, and Hendrich. It will serve no benefit to go further in depth of these individual tangles because Claribel explained them quite nicely in her Additional Findings. Instead, let's direct our attention to Hendrich Albright, Jr. who was born in 1716 There are two main sources of information, that of Stockard's "History of Alamance," and that of Amasa J. Parker's "Landmarks of Albany County," 1897 Part III, Family Sketches, page 69. Both sources state that Hendrich was born in 1716 and, Parker believes, in or near Australia in the Rhineland.

Hendrich, Sr. with wife, Anna Elizabeth Folson and family, except for their oldest son Johannes and his family, landed in America on October 18, 1732 and settled in Albany County, New York. Johannes, (Abt. age 35) the oldest son of Hendrich, Sr. with his wife Anna Barbara Gossauer and family, landed in Philadelphia on September 9, 1932. They settled in Bern Twp, Berks County, Pennsylvania.

Hendrich, Sr. and Anna Elizabeth's youngest son, Hendrich, Jr. (b. 1716) was married to Elizabeth Volland (Foland, Folent), daughter of Philipus Foland and Eva Switselaar of Kingston, New York. Mr. Leonard gathered information from an old Albright Bible, which agrees with the record from the Reformed Dutch Church in Albany where Elizabeth was Christened on Oct. 29, 1727. All of their children remained in Albany County with the exception of Eva, who married a man by the name of Strauss, who, during the Revolution, being a Tory, went to Canada. Johannes, the oldest son, was Mr. Leonard's direct ancestor through Johannes' daughter, Rachel, who married John Leonard, his great-grandfather. Hendrich and Elizabeth Foland Albright settled on a tract of four hundred acres near the present city of Albany, New York. The land was later divided among their children into smaller farms. According to Parker, Hendrich built a large stone house on the homestead in 1783 which stood for one hundred years. It was finally destroyed by fire in 1894.

For clarification, Hendrich (b. 1716) and Elizabeth (b. 1727) their oldest son, Johannes "John" (b. 1749) married Rosina Buys (b. Abt. 1755). They were married in the same church where Elizabeth was Christened 22 years earlier. They raised six children.

In 1780 or 1782 he married Mary Gibbs (1760-1837, dau. of Nicholas) & they had a dau., Katherine (1786-1842) who m. Col. John Stockard.
Researched by Gail Breitbard -- November 8, 1968

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Several Searchers have reported Hendrich Albrecht landed in America October 18, 1732 which was a month after his son, Johannes and his family arrived. There were other immigrants with the Albrecht surname: Gerich, Barbara, Antonius, Peter, Hans (the last 3 were among women and children), who were Palatines, on the "John & William" 10-17-1732.

19 October 1732 - Another picture of Suffering and Hardship.

"Sunday last arrived here Captain Tymperton, in 17 weeks from Rotterdam, with 220 Palatines -- 44 died in their passage. About three weeks ago, the passengers dissatisfied with the length of the voyage, were so imprudent as to make a mutiny, and being the stronger party, have ever since had the government of the vessel, giving orders from among themselves to the captain and sailors, who were threatened with death in case of disobedience. Thus, having sight of land, they carried the vessel twice backwards and forwards between our capes to Virginia, looking for a place to go ashore, they knew not where. At length they compelled the sailors to cast anchor near Cape May, and eight of them took the boat by force and went ashore; from whence they have been five days coming up by land to this place. The eight men were committed to prison."*
"Swiss & German Pioneers by Eshleman p-245."


This accounts for the tradition that Hendrich came with his wife and sons to America. They may have actually started together. Ordinarily 10 to 12 weeks were quite sufficient to make the passage. But these people saw no land after 16 weeks. The rest of the family were on the "Johnson" of Holland-Amerika Linie from Rotterdam which landed in Philadelphia on 9 September 1732.

This ship was the pink "John and William" which reached Philadelphia on 17 October 1732, under Captain Tymperton from Rotterdam, according to vol. 17 second series of Pennsylvania Archives, page 72. A "pink" is a narrow sterned vessel. There were 98 women and children and about 71 men on the passenger list according to the account found in Swiss & German Pioneer by Eshleman p-245.

Strassberger & Hinke's "Pennsylvania German Pioneers" - Vol.1 p. 84-85 reported:

Oct. 17, 1732. Palatines imported in the ship Pink John and William, of Sunderland, Constable Tymperton, Master from Rotterdam, last from Dover.--Sixty-one men above sixteen, one hundred and nine women and children of both sexes of different ages -- in all 170.

Palatinate, In German (Pfalz) history, name of two impererial regions not related geographically, the western Rhenish, or lower, Palatinate (German Rheinpfalz or Niederpfalz) and the Upper Palatinate (German Oberpfalz) of northeastern Bavaria. The name Palatinate is derived from the ancient and medieval office of count palatine, a nobleman who held judical powers and had charge of the various imperial castles where Holy Roman emperors stayed while traveling; hence the term became associated with the districts where the counts palatine were sovereign representatives.

The Palatinate district in Germany where Hendrich was born is a province of Bavaria. According to a map of that time, this is west of the Rhine. The German immigrants who came to Pennsylvania during the early 1700's were mostly from the southern part of Germany, especially the Palatinate, Wurtemberg and probably Switzerland. It was after the thirty year war that in 1685, Louis XIV made unjust claims to a portion of the Palatinate. During the war that followed 1688 to 1697, the people were driven from their homes, their crops and land devasted and their homes burned. Many of the people braved the terrors of the ocean and fled to America to find new homes, free from persecution and seeking freedom of religion and political belief.

The medival emperors maintained palaces in various parts of Germany in which they resided alternately, and in their absence were represented by counts palatine as the chief administration and judical officers. A large principality combining the authority of the counts palitine of Lorraine and the Rhine, which developed in the 12th century, became known as the Palatine (also often called the Rhenish or, later the Electoral Palatinate). The Albrecht family, as far as immigration to America, came in the period of the Electoral Palatinate.

Skipping through the centuries, through many wars and religious conflicts, we will pick up the Palatinate. In 1685 the last elector of the Simmern line was succeeded by Philip William of the Roman Catholic line of the Palatinate-Zweibrucken-Neuburg, which since 1614 had
also ruled the duchies of Julich and Berg on the lower Rhine. In the above outline of Emperors you will notice that Albrecht I and Albrecht II
served in that capacity.

King Louis XIV of France, pretending to act in behalf of his sister-in-law, Elizabeth Charlotte, duchess of Orleans, a Palatinate princess, chalenged the succession. In the subsequent general European war, French designs on the Palatinate were frustrated, but in 1689 the country was systematically devasteted by a retreating French army. It was this destruction that led to the first wave of German overseas migration. Most of the early German settlers of Pensylvania came from the Palatinate. In the place of ruined Heidelberg, Mannheim became in 1720 the capitol of the Palatinate.

An article by Peter Kalm, a Swedish natural philosopher and traveler, was born at Ostro Bothnia in 1715, traveled from 1748 to 1751 in North America, and at a later period in Russia; he became Professor of Botany at the University of Abo, and died in 1779.

"Though," says Peter Kalm, "the Province of New York has been inhabited by Europeans much longer than Pennsylvania, yet it is not far so populous as that colony. This cannot be ascribed to any particular discouragement arising from the nature of the soil, for that is pretty good; but, I am told of a very different reason, for that I will mention here.

"In the reign of Queen Anne, about the year 1709, many Germans came hither, who got a track of land from the English government, which they might settle. After they had lived there some time, and had built houses, and made corn-fields and meadows, their liberties and privileges were infringed, and, under several pretences, they were repeatedly deprived of parts of their land. This at last roused the Germans. They returned violence for violence, and beat those who thus robbed them of their possessions. But these proceedings were looked upon in a very bad light by the government. The most active people among the Germans being taken up, they were roughly treated, and punished with the utmost rigor of the law. This, however, so far exasperated the rest, that the greater part of them left their houses and fields, and went to settle Pennsylvania.

"There they were exceedingly well received, got a considerable track of land, and were indulged in great privileges, which were given them forever. The Germans, not satisfied with being themselves removed from New York, wrote to their relatives and friends, and advised them, if ever they intended to come to America, not to go to New York, where the government has shown itself so unequitable. This advice had such influence that the Germans who afterwards went in great numbers to Pennsylvania.

"It sometimes happened that they were forced to go on board of such ships, as were bound for New York, but they scarcely got on shore, when they hastened on to Pennsylvania, in spight of all the inhabitants of New York."

This was very typical of what happened to the Albrecht family during their emigration to the United States. All of Hendrich's family went to New York except for his oldest son, Johannes, who settled in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Several of the family members who settled in Pennsylvania later (abt. 1760) settled in Orange County, North Carolina and then eventually fanned out to the southern states via Tennessee and Missouri or Georgia.
_________________________________________________
Ancestory searching can be quite confusing as to where a person was born or lived. Germany is approximately half the size of Texas. In comparison their Pfalz or State is somewhat like the Counties of Texas. There are fewer and usually an area little larger than our counties.
I served in the European Theater of Operations in the U.S. Army during World War II and traveled quite extensively. Most of my time was spent in Bavaria. I always considered myself as being in Germany and did not breake it down to Bavaria.

We, Lee Allbright and wife Jacqueline, in 1985 spent a month touring 13 European Countries. We especially appreciated the Rhine River. We traveled conversely to the flow of the river and against the direction of travel by which our families took as they came to America. I will reverse this direction and discuss the route they must have taken.

The Rhine is one of the principle rivers of Europe. Rising in eastern Switzerland, the Rhine flows 820 miles in a generally northwestern direction through or adjoining Austria, Liechtenstein, France, Germany, and the Netherlands, to its mouth on the North Sea. It is formed high in the Swiss Alps by the Vorderrhein and the Hinterrhein, which join near the town of Chur. The river has greatly influenced the history, culture, and economy of Europe from Roman days to the present.

The Rhine begins as a tumultuous Alpine stream churning through deep gorges, and because it is fed by the meltwaters of snow and glaciers, it has a maximum volume in the spring and summer. The river is very torrent as it moves westward to Basel, Switzerland. Near the Swiss canton of Schaffhausen it is 600 ft. wide and plunges 75 ft. over a spectacular waterfall, the Rheinfall. Words cannot describe the grandor of that waterfall. It was mid-October when we were there and with the humidity from water spray it was very cold.

At Basel, Switzerland, the river turns north and enters the Rhine Graben with flat-floored rift valley lying on the west and the famous Black Forrest on the east. With the junction of the Main River at Mainz, in Germany, the Rhine becomes more stabilized. This is probably the point where the Albrecht started their journey toward Rotterdam. Along its course from Bingen to Bonn, the river has cut the deep, steepsided Rhine Gorge through the Rhineland Plateau. This picturesque gorge, with terraced vineyards and castle-lined cliffs, has often been referred to as the "heroic Rhine," renowned in history and romantic literature. Here the Rhine is about 480 ft. wide and 75 ft. deep.

When on our 1985 tour at this special time, Jacqueline and I went topside several times until the cold winds would drive us below where there was a great party of German people singing their native songs and toasting each other.

At the Netherlands frontier, the Rhine is 2,150 ft wide. From this point it divides into two parallel distributaries, the Lek and the Waal, as it crosses a wide, marshy plain and a great delta as it heads toward the North Sea. There was a Delta Project going on to close these two channels by building sluices and alternate channels for river runoff. It was to be completed in the next year, 1986. The main link from the Rhine to the North Sea is the New Waterway, which established Rotterdam as the leading port in continental Europe when it was constructed in 1872. Much of this delta is at or below sea level, but diking has enabled it to become one of the most densely populated and important economic regions on the continent.

Three of Johannes Albrecht's children, Jacob, Ludwig, and Barbara, left Berks Co., Pa for Orange Co., N,C. in the 1760's. High taxes and land prices probably prompted their move. They settled in the Haw River plains of northern North Carolina, an area of rich farm land. The Albrecht's settled along Alamance and Stinking Quarter Creeks. This part of Orange Co. was later divided to form Alamance [1849] and Guilford Counties.

One of the first churches founded was a union of the Lutheran and Reformed faiths in SE Guilford Co. near the present site of Laws Church along the old road from Hillsboro to Salisbury. In 1813 the congregation constructed a brick church using local clay. It is said to be the first brick church in N.C. and used until 1967 when a modern building was built next door. The "Old Brick Church" is located six miles south of Nurlington. Records at the church were kept in German until 1813 when the State decreed that English be spoken and taught in all public schools.

Several pioneer Albright's are buried there, including Ludwig's and his wife, Anna Marie Keller. The original headstones were in German and were replaced with English language in the 1930's.

Nearby is a colonial brick home now owned by Ruby [Clapp] Pentecost, an Albright descendant. This home was built by Daniel Albright, Ludwig's grandson in 1842. Located near a large flat rock, the home is known as "The Flat Rock Daniel Albright Home." Nearby is another early German Reform Church, Stoner's [Steiner's] Church, located at the confluence of the Alamance and Stinking Quarter Creeks. The first elders were Jacob Albright, Peter Sharp, and John Foust, husband of Barbara Albright. Jacob and Barbara and their spouses are buried in the Stoner's Cemetery.

Two miles west of Stoner's Church and five miles south of the city of Graham is Mount Harmon Church which was established on a tract of land donated by George Albright, son of Daniel and Catherine Loy.

Just south of the town of Alamane is the old St. Paul grave yard where many Albrights are buried. The cemeteries of the Pleasant Hill Christian Church near Snow Camp and the Cane Creek Quaker Church [founded in 1751] in the same area also contain the graves of many ancestors. Also the cemetery of the Buffalo Presbyterian Church founded in 1756 at Greensboro, Guilford County, has many Albright graves of the 18th century.

A publication of the original lists of arrivals in the port of Philadelphia by Strassburger and Hinke indicated that Johannes Albrecht, wife Anna Barbara, and five children were on board the "Johnson Galley" of London, David Crockett, Commander, September 18, 1732 when it arrived in America. They emigrated from Rotterdam to Philadelphia. ("Pennsylvania German Pioneers", R.B. Strassburger, Volumes I and II.) The names of this family were included on List 21A. They settled first in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, on the west bank of the Schuylkill River which later became part of Berks County, Pennsylvania.

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" which arrived from Rotterdam on September 18, 1732. Their children were listed as:

MEN OVER 16 YEARS WOMEN ABOVE 14

Albrecht Albrecht
Johannes Albrecht Anna Albrecht

BOYS UNDER 16 GIRLS UNDER 14
Jacob Albrecht Matelina Albrecht
Lodawick Albrecht Barbara Albrecht
Christian Albrecht

(Pennsylvania German Pioneers, R.B. Straussberg, Vol. I)

Family records and other data show that Christian was improperly listed; the correct name was Christian, the oldest son of this couple. 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.

Continuing the search with the aid of Edward Hocker (*1), 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.

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.
