Latin word Albanus, which means white. Albaugh was originally a name from the many places in Italy and elsewhere called Alba. The nickname was usually given to someone who was fair in complexion or blond haired. The name originated in Alsace, where the Albaugh family played an integral part in the social, economic and political development of the region. In medieval times, when land proprietorship and management were the sole source of wealth and power, the Albaugh family became members of the gentry.

The Great Migration



The great European flow of migration to North America, which began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century, was particularly attractive to those from the Rhineland who wished to escape either poverty or religious persecution. Many of those who left the Rhineland to seek their fortunes in the prosperous and free New World settled in the major urban centers of the United States and Canada. In the United States, the settlers from the Rhineland passed through immigration centers like that of Ellis Island, most of them moving on to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, and New York. In Canada, the majority of Rhinelanders settled in Ontario and the prairie provinces. An examination of passenger and immigration lists has revealed many important settlers to North America bearing the name Albaugh, or one of its variants above:
