Notes

WILL: The will of John "Albertus" of Newtown, dated 14 Jan 1689/90 and p roved 20 May 1691, is recorded in Queens County Liber A, Wills page 44 (t his Liber contains separate pages for will and deeds). Two abstracts o f this will were checked, one by Amos Canfield in the NYGBR 65:117, the o ther by Wm. A. D. Eardeley in his "Records in the Office of the Conty Cle rk at Jamaica, L. I., N. Y. 1680-1781"(1918). Both agree that the will n ames the following persons: My wife, Elizabeth Albertus; my sons John an d Samuel Albertus; my daughter Elizabeth Howard; my daughter Mehitabel; a nd my daughter Deliverance Graves.
NOTES: In Cora Snapp's "Historical Notes of Newtown, Collected by Jame s Riker", she lists John Alburtus' 1689 Will as among those abstracted b y Riker in his "Memoria Vol. 7", but she does not give the abstract. Th e Memoria Volumes are available in the Manuscripts Division of the New Yo rk Public Library, upon application. One cannot help but suspect that Ri ker read John Alburtis' Will as "my daughter Elizabeth Steward." This be comes more likely when it is known that the present copy of the will at J amaica is almost certainly not that seen by Riker. Sometime in the lat e 19th century, almost certainly after Riker published his book, the ol d Liber A was replaced by a new handwirtten transcription, and the old Li ber has never been seen since that time. Whoever was employed to make th e transcript is know to have made errors in deciphering proper names, n o doubt because many of the earliest clerks used the old "Secretary Hand " and other handwriting very different from our own. It is quite possibl e that "Steward" could be misread as "Howard". There was a Howard famil y in Newtown, also well known to Riker, but there does not appear to be a ny place for a wife Elizabeth in that family as of 1689.
