John Wright (Goochland County Carpenter) was born probably before 1719, married Judith Easly probably before 1736, and died after 1772. His parents are as yet unidentified, but our current focus is on the family of 1690 Francis Wright of Lancaster County, Virginia, and his wife Mary (Hill) (Wright) Lawrence.

Was a carpenter in Goochland Co., Va.

On 10 Apr 1739 John Wright of Goochland Co. purchased 358 acres of land in Goochland Co., Va on the branches of Lickinghole Creek from Robert Mimms. The land was orignaly patented by David Mimms by patent dated 31 Oct 1731. The deed was witnessed by John Mimms, John McFarland, ad David A. Mimms and recorded 15 May 1739. Goochland Co., Virginia Deed Book 3, p. 213.

On 25 Sep 1741 John Right and his wife Judith of St. James Parish sold 179 acres of land on Lickinghold Creek in Goochland Co. to Stephen Clement. This land was half the land that John Wright purchased of Robert Mimms. The deed was witnessed by Josias Payne, John Moriss and Benjamin Salmon and recorded on 17 Nov 1741. Goochland Co. Virginia Deed Book 3, p. 491.

On 19 Nov 1751, John Wright sold 60 acres of land in Goochland Co., to Robert Pleasants of Henrico Co. This 60 acres was also part of the land that John Wright acquired of Robet Mimms in 1739, leaving John Wright with approximately 119 acres. The deed was witnessed by John Thaxton, Wm. Harding and Wm. Allen. Goochland Co., Virginia Deed Book 6, p. 178.

John Wright of Bedford County, Virginia, was born probably between June 10, 1732, and June 11, 1736, married Mary Pace on January 14, 1756, at Goochland County, Virginia, and died before Dec 26, 1814, at Bedford County, Virginia. His parents were John Wright (Goochland County Carpenter) and Judith (Easly) Wright.

John Wright Jr. appears in the tithe lists in the years 1752, 1754, 1755 and 1756 in the household of his father John Wright. He was not listed in the 1748 tithe lists or any earlier tithe lists, suggesting that he was born sometime between 1732 and 1736.

John Wright Jr first appears in a separate household in 1757. The establishment of a separate residence by John Wright Jr. coincides with his marraige to Mary Pace in 1756.

The Douglas Register for Goochland Co. Virginia lists the following marriage:

Here is what has been found so far on Mary (Wright) Briggs. While the evidence is circumstantial, I believe it is strong enough to support the identification of Mary Wright, daughter of 1690 (year of death) Francis Wright of Lancaster County, Virginia, (place of death) as the wife of Ralph Briggs.680/177 the court ordered Will Frizell to deliver up to Francis Wright and Mary his wife, orphan of Charles Hill, deceased, all cattle belonging to Mary. This record identifies Mary (Hill) Wright as the wife of Francis Wright./136 the court granted administration of the estate of Francis Wright to his widow Mary Wright.B. 1696-1702/59 Francis Wright was granted part of his deceased father's estate in the hands of his mother Mary Lawrence, administratrix of William Lawrence, deceased. Similar orders were granted for Charles Wright, Mary Wright, and John Wright. Other records confirm Francis, Charles, and John as sons of 1690 Francis Wright of Lancaster County, Virginia, and Mary (Hill) (Wright) Lawrence. This record, therefore, identifies Mary Wright as a daughter of 1690 Francis and Mary.t Lancaster County D.B. 9/225 Ralph Briggs was a witness to a deed from Francis Wright to his brother Charles Wright of 50 acres of land that descended from Charles Hill to Mary (Hill) Wright, the mother of Francis and Charles.is Wright and his wife Anne conveyed 50 acres of land to Ralph Briggs, land that formerly belonged to his father Francis Wright, with John Wright as a witness. This conveyance is similar to the 50 acre conveyance to Charles Wright and a later 50 acres conveyance to John Wright and suggests that Francis Jr. was treating his siblings the same. That in turn suggests that Ralph Briggs had married Mary Wright and was receiving the 50 acres on her behalf.1/110 Francis Wright and his wife Anne, Charles Wright, and Ralph Briggs sold to William Ranken 70 acres of land that Francis had inherited from his mother Mary (Hill) Wright and sold to Charles Wright and that Charles Wright had sold to Ralph Briggs. This again suggests a family connection among these people and that Ralph Briggs had married Mary Wright.arolyn Jennings all stated that the wife of Ralph Briggs was Mary (_____) Wright. I do not have a source yet for that identification, but if correct, then it is added confirmation that Ralph Briggs married Mary Wright.26, administration was granted on Ralph Brigg's estate and John Wright was appointed guardian of Lydia Briggs, indicating she was a minor child of Ralph Briggs.er County, has been identified as 1730 John Wright of Goochland County, Virginia. This is through his son Meredith. The will of 1730 John Wright of Goochland County makes clear that his son Meredith was under 21 years of age and, therefore, born after March 14, 1708/9. On August 10, 1710, at Lancaster County D.B. __/324 William Meredith recorded a young fillie for his grandson Meredith Wright and Charles Wright gave Meredith Wright a cow. In his will, 1730 John Wright named his son Meredith Wright and gave a cow to Lydie Briggs. This is a similar gift that John's brother Charles made to Meredith and suggests a family reciprocation of uncle giving nephew/niece a cow. In any event, these transactions tie 1730 John Wright of Goochland County to Ralph Briggs and add further confirmation that his sister Mary Wright married Ralph Briggs.o hear from others who have any additional evidence on this Wright line.

Mary Pridham Wright was the daughter of Wingfield Wright and his second wife Mary Pridham. She is mentioned in the will of her father. Will of Wingfield Wright, Granville County Wills, 1749-1968, North Carolina State Archives, C.R. 044.801.42 (Wilson James D.-Young).

She married about 25 Oct. 1783 (bond) to Simon Clement in Granville Co., North Carolina. Brent H. Holcomb, Marriages of Granville County, North Carolina, 1753-1868, Genealogical Publishing Co., Balt. Md. (2003), p. 65. One researcher indicates that she made a will dated 23 Sept. 1839 in Granville, North Carolina and proved in court in Weakley Co. Tennessee on 3 April, 1848 naming five children: William (executor), Anthony, Simeon, Mary Clements Welch, and Isabella Clements Freeman (wife of Gideon T.). This information has not been confirmed but appears to be possible.

2345 The date Oct. 3, 1860 on the page labeled 'Births' appears to be the date that the information was recorded in the Bible. The bible is dated 1858, which is after the last recorded birth. The handwriting was the same throughout indicating that all information was recorded at one time. It is likely that Jesse and Nancy purchased the Bible about October 3, 1860 and recorded family births at that time.

This bible record was transcribed by David E. Bennett on June 9, 2000. The bible was in the possession of Sam G. Bennett, grandson of Jesse L. Bennett. Sam Bennett related that he found the Bible in a trunk in his home, which was purchased by Jesse Lewis Bennett in 1847.
