From Wayne Olsen:

From "Genealogical and Biographical Notices of Descendants of Sir John Wright of Kelvedon Hall, Essex, England in America; Thomas Wright of Wethersfield CT and Deacon Samuel Wright of Northampton, MA." By Curtis Wright, Carthage MO, 1915.

Of London, England, son of Lord John Wright of Wrightsbridge, Essex, by his second wife, Bennett Greene. He was a merchant of London, Assistant to the Massachusetts Bay Company, appointed by the charter and selected by the company of which he was a charter member and an active officer; he owned one eighth of the ship "Arabella," which in 1630 brought the colony to America.

He was a distinguished member of the company, and one of the undertakers for the management of the general stock of the company from1627 to 1630; served on important committees in England, but did not come to America.

Mr. Wright objected to the transfer of the charter, and resigned his office when Sir Brian Janson was chosen in his place. On this account Mr.Wright had trouble with the MA Bay Company who brought suit against him, William Eaton and others. No record of his later life or of his death has been found.

Relative to research for data in England, the genealogist ___writes: "In those turbulent times whole families were frequently wiped out."

"Nathaniel Wright signed a pedigree chart in 1633 for the Vicar of London, in which it is stated that John Wright of Wrightsbridge m. first,____, dau of ____ Linsell, and by her had children John Wright, clerk of the Parliament, and Samuel Wright, and by his second wife, Bennett Greene, dau. of Lawrence Greene, merchant of London, he had Nathaniel, who m. Lydia James, by whom he had son, Samuel, then 19 years of age.
