Rhode Island, USA
Born about 1601 (aged 34 on 17 June 1635), son of Christopher and _____ (Clarke) Almy of South Kilworth, Leicestershire. Planter from South Kilworth, Leicestershire who came to Massachusetts Bay in 1635 on the "Abigail."
First settled in Lynn; moved to Sandwich MA in 1637, & Portsmouth RI in 1642. Died between 28 February 1676/7 (date of will) and 23 April 1677 (probate of will).
MARRIAGE: By license dated 17 July 1626 Audrey Barlow ("Williamus Almie de South Kilworth," gent., "etatis 26 annorum," and "Audream Barlowe de Lutterworth ... etatis 26 annorum," with the consent of Stafford Barlowe of Lutterworth, gent., father of the said Audrey. She died after 28 February 1676/7, when she was named in her husband's will.
The 1618-9 heralds' visitation of Northamptonshire includes a pedigree of "Almey of Badby," which shows William Almy, his parents, uncles, cousins, and paternal grandparents and great-grandparents.
In 1625 "Edward Clement, clerk, sued William Almey, yeoman, son and executor of Christopher Almey, deceased, about the parsonage of Lutterworth [co. Leicester] and a bond connected therewith."
Massachusetts Bay records contain three entries which apply to another WILLIAM ALMY, present in Massachusetts in 1631 and 1634. These records have been employed to argue that the subject of the present sketch came to New England in 1630, returned to England in 1634, and came a second time to New England in 1635. But as these are two different men, we have only the evidence that the William Almy currently under consideration arrived in 1635, with no evidence of an earlier presence in New England.
