Brother of Arthur Alger (named as supervisor in will), who is probably the Arthur Alger baptized at Yealmpton, Devonshire, 29 August 1622. Since Dunstan, the name which the Alger brothers gave to their tract of land at Blue Point, was also the name of part of Yealmpton, this is assumed to be the parish of origin of both brothers. Andrew and Arthur were probably related to THOMAS ALGER of Richmond Island, and to Tristram Alger, also briefly of Richmond Island.
