My Gran's maiden name was Albiston (Alice Albiston), born 1910 with brothers called Frank, Bunny, Nora and others. Her mum, I think, was called Annie and I know that Annie and her husbad emigrated to Australia (Adelaide?) for 2 years and then returned to England. My Gran lives in Chelmsford Essex, and I also reckon 'Albiston' originates from Midlands. However, she has dark colouring and I think there could be some gypsy blood in there somewhere, or maybe itlaian. Hope this helps, Bye.
