Hi Linda, My father believes the name Albrecht/Albright originates in the 1100's, from Albrecht the Bea rHe was a Saxon chiefton that was adopted by King Otto, I believe of Denmark. This Albrecht the Bear was given the title of "Marcduke of Brandenburg" which is the general area where he settled. I believe that ther are several more Albrechts in succeding generations, but not in the order of father to son. He is credited with being the first ruler of the Prussia. The same Danish/Viking etc Cjristian Kings that had run the Baltic sea since the 900's, may have extended into Russia where they were refered to as the Rus, and the Vikings certainly made a large a large contribution to the populations of England as well. There is an Albrighton town in England with an Albright-something hotel that dates to aboutthe same time period as Albrect the Bear. Ther are Slavic and Polish variations of the name, probably because on the land these areas stood between Prussia and Russia.
I plugged Albrecht into a search engine on a map of contemporary Germany to look for towns by this name. There are several, all within a hundred miles of todays Berlin. I am not certain where Wurtenburg is but believe it must be in the North as that seems to be where the Lutheran/ anabaptist/ anti Catholic sentiment was the strongest.
My aunt Henrietta died about 15 years ago, she was darn close to 100, being born in 1884. From her, I am pretty sure I am a descendent of a Jacob or Johann brothers who came to Pennsylvania in 1732 and settled near Pottstown. They were definayely in touch with the earlier Albright',s of Bern Twp Pa, all being descended from Henrich in 1667 and 1680. Johannes Albright was married to Anna Barbara Grosauer VON REISBACH. I am not possitive but the VON may imply that she was the royal "Cousin" that the family here went back to visit before WW1, and not actually an Albright/Albrecht Eric Albright/ Grand Canyon
