Albert's parents were apparently married in 1902 which makes one wonder if Albert's imminent arrival precipitated a hasty wedding. By 1911, Albert had two younger sisters to order around, Katherine Eirys and Helen Vivyenne. The family must have been fairly well to-do for they also had a Welsh housemaid to help with the chores and childcare.
After 1911, little is known of Albert's movements. He apparently visited the United States (Massachusetts) in 1925/26 as a student, but beyond that we find no trace of him.

After the war, Albert joined the United Nations Organization in Switzerland. He traveled back and forth between England, Switzerland and New York quite a bit. Unlike many of his fellow UNO workers, Albert generally avoided lengthy sea voyages and traveled by airplane. On a trip in 1946, he listed his status as "married". A later passenger manifest lists his wife as Henriette F.L. Evans, a British subject.

Our last trace on Albert comes from a passenger manifest in 1956 when Albert and his wife set sail on the Queen Elizabeth from Southampton, England to New York. They both listed their country of permanent residence as the USA. What became of Albert and his wife? Did they remain in the USA or did they eventually return to England or Switzerland?
