My wife's maiden name is Albray, the family were in Hampshire from at least the mid 1800's. Even though the name is spelled Albray, because of local dialects, it is more often than not pronounced as Orl-bree. Does anyone think that Albray could be a variant spelling? Just in case that is a possiblity, the information I have got back to is George Albray who was a labourer in Gosport though deceased by the time his son, Henry (b 1848 Fareham) married Charlotte Harvey in Alverstoke in 1871. According to the 1881 census, there was also a George Albray who could be a sibbling of Henry. I have obtained a cert. of another possible sibbling of Henry, Rhoda Albray's mar. cert. to Henry Hawkins (1868 Alverstoke), Rhoda's father is George but his occupation is a seaman. On the Free BMD website there is a George Walls Allbury b. 1850, Isabella Allbury b. 1853, and Ethel Ellen Albery b. 1875 all born in Alverstoke, and on the 1881 census there is a George,Isabella and Ethel Albray (1851, 1853 and 1876 respectively) but George and Isabella appear to be married? If anyone can help in any way on this family, I'd be very grateful to hear from them.
