Lupo Family - History, genealogy and music of the Lupo Family
|Albiano Lupo, the first husband of John Chandler's (born 1600) wife Elizabeth, was a member of a famous musical family whose patriarch arrived in England from Venice, Italy, in 1540. They were apparently Sephardic Jews of Spanish or Portuguese lineage. Albiano Lupo, possibly a non-musical member of the family, arrived in Jamestown with the second wave of colonists in 1610. Albiano was a shareholder in the Virginia Company and was among the first settlers of Kecoughton, later known as Elizabeth City County, one of the earliest colonies in Virginia after Jamestown. Following his arrival, Albiano was given the office of Lieutenent. Albiano died in Virginia in 1626. Source: http://www.lupo.org/narrative/lupo_history_2.html|
