Alsbury family - Scotland
- The family of Alsbury's in Fife and Midlothian in the mid
C19 originated from the Corsley, Wiltshire, Aylesbury family. One
of them was for some time a Captain / Mate on the ferries which plied the
Firth of Forth. Intriguingly he is found twice on the 1881 Census - spelt
once as AYLESBURY (on board ship on the Suffolk coast) and also as ELLESBURGH
(at his home address in Edinburgh). The principal descendants of this branch
of the family are to be found in British Columbia, Canada
though part of the family also went to Queensland, Australia.
- I have been informed via Robert Alsbury in Mississipi, USA,
of a chance encounter he had in 1993 with a John Alsbury
when staying on business in Atlanta... John was on business
from Seoul, Korea.. his family was from Scotland and had emigrated
to New Zealand and Australia...
- Any help making the connections, Please!
