I have recently been doing some work on the British census of 1881. The returns for Cheetham, near Manchester, include two Bahamas born Alburies. These are Kate Amelia, age 20 and William Broadbent, age 18.
Kate & William are the oldest of 6 children living with the widow Mary Ann Albury. The others are: Agnes Annie, 16 Robert William Coles, 14 Caroline Lucy, 9 George Ernest, 5 and were all born in Manchester.
Mary Ann herself was born in Knaresborough, Yorkshire about 1836. By reference to my other records, especially the General Register Office indexes, it appears that her husband was William John Albury, who died in Salford aged 42. My assumption is that he was a Bahamian Albury. So does anyone know of William John Albury, born in the Bahamas about 1836? I have details of the marriages of his sons, and it would be a simple matter (though it would mean buying a couple of certificates) to track down British descendants.
