    Mr. Wright.

    This man is the Father of my Gt,Gt.Aunt's Husband -Harry.

    In trying to find her hubby Harry's parents & birth/Baptism [for show] I find that the father James Wright c.1823 Islington married Mary Ann Franklin from Purleigh, Essex, in 1846. Her address Thornhill rd. She died in 1868 in Islington.
    James gives his father as James a plasterer.

    In 1851 James & family is listed on census as James 'Myle' same address as always & still a bootmaker.

    James Wright b. 1823 Islington Master Bootmaker

    1871:RG10; Piece: 255; Folio: 28; Page: 4; 28 thornhill Rd.-widowed

    In 1871 James appears to have married Elizabeth Norton, still a bootmaker he gives his father's name as William a builder.
    Elizabeth is the dtr of William Norton a farmer. Their dtr is also Elizabeth b 1876. James & Mary A's son Ernest is with them in 1881.

    Has he forgotten his Dad's name over the 30+ years? or was it the cleric's error I wonder.
    I still haven't found Harry's birth/ baptism with an certainty, there is probably a wright way to go about this & perhaps I went the wrong way.
    [His gt.g'kinders doings led me a merry dance also, but I've decided to let them rest.]

    I found only one likely James in 141-the James snr was a printer /painter.
    If anyone has any enlightening thoughts on this I'd be glad to hear them, now I must go find homes for my tomato chutney-within my pantry. :D

    Wendy - look again at the 1843 m/c - James' Father is William Wright plasterer

    A witness is Emma Wright - could be a sister perhaps?

    OH Sue you are correct,I reversed the marriages re Fathers, been such a long protracted business. No wonder the original became confused, it's still happening.

    James gives his father as William a plasterer. Mary's father william Franklin- a wheelwright.

    In 1871 James appears to have married Elizabeth Norton, still a bootmaker he gives his father's name as James a builder.
    Elizabeth is the dtr of John Norton a farmer. Their dtr is also Elizabeth b 1876. James & Mary A's son Ernest is with them in 1881.

    Well I have looked for a bap. for James - father William and found nothing (also tried Emily). If he was mine I would tend to think William was correct, plasterer/builder same area of expertise (I know tradesmen would disagree) and 25 years on from first marriage a little 'poetic licence' perhaps. It could even be a clerical error.

    Tarnations - just looked at my post should have been looking for Emma:headbang:

    You see what it does to us? James had a sister Emily.

    Emily Wright
    Age: 3
    Estimated birth year: 1858
    Relation: Daughter
    Father's name: James Wright
    Mother's name: Mary A. Wright

    Perhaps he had a Mum named Emma. Mums at times signed marriage docs.

    Wendy - no luck with bap for James:(

    I could not find anything on the 1841 census, but there are plenty of unreadable entries for Islington, so I tried 1851 and found this
    Upper Barnsbury Street, Islington
    H0107/1499/600/23

    William Wright b1785 Middlesex - plasterer
    Emma Wright b1787 Middlesex - wife
