i have just read you interesting details on your website.
My side of the Alberry Family originated from the same area in the late 1700's
We have documented evidence, that my family moved from Sussex in the first Napoleonic war, when he joined the local yeomanry and was sent to France.(Sam Alberry)but when the war ended or when they came back to England they arrive in a very small hamlet near Newark in Nottinghamshire.Having never been this far north if England, and having no means or money to return to his native county, he decided to set up roots in the place that his regiment disbanded, he married there, worked on the land and then moved to another small village near bye called Clowne,(near Worksop) and my family stayed there until 1900, When the South Yorkshire Coal field was sunk.My Grandfather also named SAM moved there and so another section of the Alberry started.For 5 generation my side of the family have been musical.playing in all the best local brass bands in Yorkshire?Derbyshire. I now 70 joined the Famous Band of HM Royal Marines and travelled the world for 40 years. Becoming the personal bandmaster to the Queen on The Royal Yacht Britannia.My son and all my grand children are good musicians.so are my brothers.I do not know if any other sections of the Alberry family are musicians though.It started in1835 them playing brass instruments and has continued without a break.
I hope this is of interest to you
