This info was sent to me by a source in Florida, who obtained it from his local library:Most often used spelling ALBRITTON. Variations prior to 1667 Albrighton,Albridghton,Alberton. Since that time Albriton, Albritten, Albritain, Albrittain. First known reference: Albrighton, in Haughten Parish, Straffordshire County, England about 1570. (Seems like no one could spell!) First Albritton in the New World: Roberton Alberton a perfumer from Albridgeton County, England arrived at Jamestown VA in 1608 on the second supply ship from England. This source has information on his son Francis and his children, and a John Albritton and his children. John was a Revolutionary War Veteran.
