The surname of ALBUTT was a baptismal name 'the son of Ailbrit', an ancient personal name which was listed in the Domesday Book of 1066 as Ailbriht. The name is of English origin. The form Albrecht is of a German immigrant which came to England at a much later date. Early records of the name mention Eusebi Ailbrit, County Huntingdonshire, 1273. Farman Alberd was the bailiff of Yarmouth in the year 1325. Henry Albot was the rector of Rockland, County Norfolk in the year 1350. John Albert of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Joseph Haddock and Sarah Albut were married at St. George's Chapel, Mayfair, London in the year 1752. John Albertston, was documented as the Mayor of Yarmouth in 1688. The name is also spelt Allbright, Albert and Albertson. When the coast of England was invaded by William The Conqueror in the year 1066, the Normans brought with them a store of French personal names, which soon, more or less, entirely replaced the traditional more varied Old English personal names, at least among the upper and middle classes. A century of so later, given names of the principal saints of the Christian church began to be used. It is from these two types of given name that the majority of the English patronymic surnames are derived and used to this day. Since the dawn of civilisation the need to communicate has been a prime drive of all higher mankind. The more organised the social structure became, the more urgent the need to name places, objects and situations essential to the survival and existence of the social unit. From this common stem arose the requirements to identify families, tribes and individual members evolving into a pattern in evidence today. In the formation of this history, common usage of customs, trades, locations, patronymic and generic terms were often adopted as surnames. The demands of bureaucracy formally introduced by feudal lords in the 11th century, to define the boundaries and families within their fiefdoms, crystallized the need for personal identification and accountability, and surnames became in general use from this time onwards. The associated coat of arms is recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. (Albrecht).
