The name Alberts was formed many centuries ago by the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It was a name typically given to a person who is noble or bright. The surname Alberts is derived from the Saxon personal name Aethel-berht. According to ancient Anglo-Saxon history Aethelbert who was the King of Kent from 860 to 866 AD, had bloodties to the Saxon invaders of the 4th century.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
