Audrey Barlow Almy
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 22, 1603
Harborough District
Leicestershire, England
Death: Feb. 28, 1677
Newport County
Rhode Island, USA

William Almy married 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.
They had five children: Annis Greene, Catherine, Christopher, John, & Job.
In a letter of estimated date 23 May 1650 to John Winthrop Jr., Roger Williams, in describing the activities of the crew of a French prize vessel, reported that "one of them (having lain with Mr. Amie's daughter of Portsmouth) is like now to marry her. The parents and the English are troubled greatly." This cannot be daughter Annis, who had married John Greene by 1649, so, unless there is a third daughter otherwise unrecorded, this record must refer to daughter Catherine. She does not appear on the 1635 passenger list with her parents and two siblings. If she was born in New England, then, it could be no earlier than the latter half of 1635, which would make her no more than fourteen at the time of the incident noted above. The probable resolution is that Catherine was born in England just before or after her brother Christopher, and either was omitted from the passenger list or came at a later time. We therefore estimate her date of birth as about 1630, although a date around 1634 would also be consistent with the other evidence. Furthermore, if this record does apply to Catherine, then she could not have been married to Bartholomew West in 1650. Pending more detailed investigation of the family of Bartholomew West, we estimate that the marriage took place about 1652.
