John Wright was christened 1708 or 1710 of Prince William Co. & FauquierCo. VA. His will page 1792 dated June 1785 filed Feb. 27, 1792.
John Wright, Gent. purchased from his step dau. Ann and her husband Jonas
Williams Jr. a part of her portion of the divide prior to July 1748. Jonas
Williams Jr. died in early 1744 leaving 125 acres of land (adjacent toJohn
Wright, Gent. and Simon Morgan) to his son David Williams.
On 23 Jul 1748 John Wright, Gent. purchased 60 additional acres (adjacent
to the first purchase) from Ann and her 2nd husband Charles Gardner.
John Wright, Gent. gave the two above sections of land (total of 185
acres) to his oldest son by deed dated 26 Aug 1751, for "divers goodcauses
but more especially in consideration of the natural love and affection
which I do bear unto by dear beloved son William Wright".
William Wright and wife Mary Grant (m. prior to 1751) sold the land in two
section just as his father had purchased it.
They sold the first section of 125 acres (which would have been the land
purchased by John prior to 1748) to Thomas Edwards in Aug 1762. signed
William Wright, Mary (X) Wright.
The second section of 60 acres was sold to John Waddle in Oct 1762 by
William & Mary and David Williams and his wife Mary. signed WilliamWright,
Mary (X) Wright, David Williams. The reason David Williams was a party to
the sale is most likely that his mother Ann and 2nd husband sold the 60
acres to John Wright, Gent. when the land actually belonged to David as
part of the 125 acres given to him by his father Jonas's will. David must
have signed thus giving John Waddle a clear title to the land. (Other
thoughts on this question?)

"WRIGHT LINEAGE HISTORY"
For support of the clergy. So large and rich farm as that whichsurroundsthe old Glebe, house here indicates the former wealth andimportance of Cople Parish. A parish which raised ppor tobacco seldomsecured the services of a good preacher. The ministers, in addition totheir tobacco wage, received the 20th calf, the 20th kidd of goates, andthe 20th pigge, They also were allowed for marriage tow shillings; forchurchinge, one shilling; for buryinge, one shilling; but forchristeninge no shilling. The Glebe land here was originally a part ofCabin Point, and was patented by COLONEL JOHN MOTTROM. It was hisgrandson,MAJOR FRANCIS WRIGHT, it seems who conveyed it to Cople Parishfor church purposes. This Glebe house is the only one of several of theNorthern Neck that remains; substantially built, it is destined long toremain. One part is very old-one of the oldest, if not the oldest, housein the Northern Neck. Its brick walls, an excellent example of thebeautiful brick work of the early builders, are quite different in colorand texture from the walls of the extension which was added about 1720.CABIN POINT: Of historic and romantic associations, has a picturesquesetting. Cabin Point Creek, a branch of Machodoc Creek, makes in near themouth of the mother creek and, after a short distance divides, formingWRIGHT POINT, Old house Point, and Pipe Stem Point. Betty Pond and SaveryPond are over to the side. Cabin Point was patented in 1650 by theengergetic JOHN MOTTROM, who willed it to his daughter, ANNE, who marriedRICHARD WRIGHT, who re-patented it in 1658. The Great House in which theylived(they resided part of the time at COAN HALL) stood on Old HousePoint, and there is the old WRIGHT burial place. Their son, MAJOR FRANCISWIRGHT, married Anne Washington, onlysister of Lawrence Washington (George Washington, grandfather). They lived at King Copsico, adjoiningwhich COLONEL MOTTROM also patented. In 1723 their son, John Wright,traded with Henry Lee I of Lee Hall, exchanging Cabin Point for an estateLee had acquired in Stafford County. Lee transferred Cabin Point to hisson, John Lee, uncle to General Henry (Light Horse Harry) Lee. JOHNWRIGHT , son of MAJOR FRANCIS WRIGHT, married Dorothy Awbrey, and had twosons, Francis and John. The estate for which he exchanged Cabin Point was1,000 acres on Powells Run in Stafford ( now Prince William) County, andexchanged being 800 acres of Cabin Point, 200 pounds sterling, 10,000pounds tobacco and five negro or mulatto slaves or the 1,000 acres onPowells Run, WRIGHT reserving one-hale acre of the said land being thegrave yard on the manour plantacon where MAJOR FRANCIS WRIGHT, father ofsaid John Wright, is buried, as also one other part of said divident ofland known by the name of Time Neck which the said JOHN WRIGHT hathalready given to his brother, RICHARD WRIGHT, by deed bearing date 22 ofSept. 1714. (Richard Wright was John Wrights half-brother, their father,Major Francis Wright, having married , second, Martha Cox). In 1739 HenryLee=D5s son, Henry Lee II bought back from JOHN WRIGHT's son, FRANCISWRIGHT, one-third and later, the other two thrids of Powells Run, andnamed it Leesylvania. There his son, Henry Lee III (Light Horse Harry)who lived at Strafford and became the father of General Robert E. Lee,was born, Jan. 29, 1756. (He was not born at Stratford). FRANCIS WRIGHT,who sold Leesylvania back to the Lee family, married Anne Massey, asister of Mary Massey, who married John Washington II of Chotank. Anneand Mary were daughters of Dade Massey, a son of Capt. Robert Massey ofStafford (nowKing George) County. ( When Col. John Washington, whosegreat-grandson, Francis Wright, married Capt. Robert Masseysgranddaughter, Anne, and his brother, Lawrence Washington, whosegrandson, John Washington, married Capt. Masseys granddaughter, Mary,were present, Sept. 26, 1675, with Virginia soldiers under the command ofCol. Washington and Maryland soldiers under the command of Major Truman,at the fort of the Susquehanna Indians, near present Mt. Vernon, todecide peace or war. And when the Marylanders murdered the officialIndian conferees and charged Col. Washington with the responsibility, itwas Capt. Massy who, later, before a commission of inquier, cleared Col.Washington). John Lee, who came into possession of Cabin Point, lived atfirst in Essex County, where he held office. He married, in 1749, Mary(Smith) Ball, widow of Jesse Ball. After Lees death, in 1767, his widowcontinued to reside at Cabin Point and on August 30, 1768, married JohnSmith. In a later period Cabin point was occupied by Bishop JOhn PayntzTyler, a great-nephew of President John Tyler. It now is the home of Mr.W.H. Calhoun, of the statesman, John C. Calhouns family, who resides in amodern dwelling on WRIGHT POINT. KING COPSICO: Still retaining itsancient Indian name, is above Cabin Point, and is a modernized part ofthe old WRIGHT estate. Here lived Anne Washington, only sister of GeorgeWashingtons grandfather, and her husband, Major Francis Wright, grandsonof Col. John Mottrom of Coan Hall. King Copsico, facing the Potomac, hasa long water front and fine bathing beaches, and here summer cabins andcottages have sprung up. COAN HALL: Is where the
first white man to settle in the Northern Neck---COLONEL JOHNMOTTROM--established his seat is on the eastern side of Coan River, onthe road to Walnut Point. Some of the outbuildings of the latergeneration remain, among them an old brick dairy and a smokehouse. Theflower garden of the present home, that of the Fallin family , the siteof the original house.COLONEL MOTTROM settled here, about 1640, comingfrom York County, whither he went from St. Marys County, Maryland. InYork County he took up no land and, at first, it seems , made his ownterms with the Indians for the land he occupied at Coan Hall, winningimmediately the friendship of Marshywap, King of the Chicacoan Indians.(Later, county records show , when there was trouble between the whitesand the Indians, King Marshywap sided with the settlers and six white menwere appointed to protect him.) While he patented a tract in Pyankatankriver as early as July 20, 1642, there is no record of his patenting anyestate here until Oct. 19, 1653. COL. MOTTROM was a staunch Protestantand a Cavalier, one supporting the Royal House of England against theRoundheads. He moved over to York County, then to Coan Hall, the betterto watch the course of events in Lord
Baltimores colony just across the Potomac. He settlement soon became theheadquarters of all the disaffected Protestants at odds with LordBaltimores rule in Maryland. He assume command of his colony and became aleader of the first settlers. He became a justice, and he is recorded asbeing present, on Nov. 20, 1645, at Jamestown, at a session of the Houseof Burgesses-the first Burgess from Northumberland and the Northern Neck.He was accepted as a Burgess from the Plantation of Northumberland. Anact of October, 1646, called on the inhabitants of Northumbrland fortaxes-whereas the inhabitants of Chickawane alias Northumberland beingmembers of this Colony have not hitherto contributed toward the chargesof War...the inhabitants of Chickawane shall alwaies hereafter be liablefor taxes...refusal to pay leavy the inhabitant to be called off theplantation and be sent south of the Rappahannock. The taxes leviedwere:For evry 100 acres of land, 15 pounds tobacco; for every cow above 3years old, 15 pounds of tobacco. (As far as intrinsic value went, one hadas soon posses a cow as one hundred acres of land). The act of Oct. 12,1648, reads: That the inhabitants of Chickcoun and other parts of theneck of land between and Rappahannoc and Potomac Rivers be hereaftercalled and known by the name of Northumberland, and that they have thepower of electing Burgesses for said county. While Northumberland Countywas created in 1648, Coan Hall was recognized as the county seat. Thefirst court-hours, however, was built later, in Hulls Neck. At Coan HallCOL. MOTTROM, as a justice, held Court. COL. NATHANIEL POPE who was ajustice for Westmoreland when the latter was a part of Northumberland,held court at COLONEL MOTTROMS house. COLONEL MOTTROM established thefirst wharf and first warehouse in the Northern Neck, just above hisseat, at present Coan Wharf. This place later was selected by theBurgesses to be a town. At Coan Hall COL. MOTTROM planned a Brewhousewhich, after his death, his enterprising son-in-law RICHARD WRIGHT, whowas ajustice in 1659, completed, that ye good ale of England might behad. COL. MOTTROM died in 1655, at age 45. The total of his inventory wasvalued at 33,896 pounds tobacco. Because of some Ambiguities in theprocuring of it, his will was referred to the governor of Virginia. Withthis will the executors experienced great difficulty. COLONEL MOTTROMwidow ( his second wife), widow first of Richrd Thompson, even after shehad married her fourth husband, continued to contest it. Three or foursuccessive executors were requiesd finally to settle matters. The widow,Ursula (Bish) Thompson-Mottrom, married thirdly, Col. George Colcough,one of the executors and a Burgess in 1658; fourthly Col. Isaac Allertonof the Narrows. By her fourth husband, she became an ancestress ofPresiden Zachary Taylor. COL. MOTTROMs children, all by his firstmarriage, were: ANNE, JOHN AND FRANCES. John Mottrom II became a captainof the militia , a justice, and a sheriff of Northumberland County. OnOct. 27, 1674, he was reqarded with 1,400 pounds of tobacco for the featof killing seven wolves in a pitt. The matrimonial adventures of Col.Mottroms three children are a fair example of the intricate marrying andintermarrying of the early settlers. The youngest daughter, Frances, bornat Coan Hall, in 1645, married, first , at age 17, Col. Nicholas Spencer,and second the Reverend John Bolton. Anne, born in England, in 1639,married, first , at age 17, Richard Wright,; second in 1655, Capt. DavidFox; and thirdly, in 1`670, Col. St. Leger Codd. Her children were:Mottrom Wright, Francis Wright, Anne Wright, William Fox, Elizabeth Fox,James Codd, Berkeley Codd, St. Leger Codd, Beatrix Codd, and Mary Codd.(Her second husband, Capt. David Fox, previously had married GeneralWashingtons mothers aunt Hannah Ball). Her son, Francis Wright, marriedGeneral Washingtons grandfathers sister, Anne Washington. John Mottrom IImarried, first Hannah Fox, and second, Ruth Griggs. His widow ( RuthGriggs) married, second, Mottrom Wright, and thirdly, Robert Gibson.(John Mottrom married his sisters second husbands daughter, by his firstwife, Hannah Ball. Mottrom Wright married his uncle, Johns widow).Mottrom Wright lived in present Richmond County. Ruth Griggs, about tenyears after her marriage to Mottrom Wright and after there were children,acquired the notion that she had violated
some church rule by marrying her first husbands nephew, and left him,uttimately with his acquiescence. He settled his affairs, took two of thechildren, Mottrom II and Frances, as his own, leaving the other two totheir mother, and leaving Mottrom II and Frances with a friend, FrancesMoor, went to England, and died there, in 1700. Excepting a few shillingsto the other children, he willed his entire estate to Mottrom II andFrances, stipulating that in the event of their death it should go to hisbrother, Francis' son JOHN WRIGHT. The widow then married, thirdly, in1701, Robert Gibson, of Richmond County. Mottrom II, born in 1690, diedunmarried, in 1712 Frances (1686-1707) married, about 1703, Doctor JosephBelfield, and had one son, Thomas Wright Belfield (1705-1743), whomarried Mary (Meriwether) Colston, widow of William Colston and daughterof Francis Meriwether and his wife, Mary Bathurst. Capt. David Fox, whomarried, first, the only sister of George Washingtons grandfather, JosephBall, then the mother of Francis Wright, who married the only sister ofGeorge Washingtons grandfather, Lawrence Washington, in his will of 1669,left 20 pounds to St. Marys White Chapel. Samuel Fox, a son of Capt.David Fox and his first wife, Hannah Ball, became the father of FrancesFox, who married Charles Burgess, becoming the mother of ElizabethBurgess, who married her cousin Jeduthon Ball, a son of Mary Balls firstcousin, James Ball I, and became the mother of Colonel Burgess Ball, adistinguished officer of the Revolution. Col. Burgess Ball married, in1781, Frances Washington, a daughter of General Washingtons brotherCharles Washington. Their son Doctor Charles Burgess Ball, therefore,descended from Capt. David Fox and from all three surviving children ofimmigrant Col. William Ball. Descendents of COL. MOTTROM further alliedthemselves with the Balls and Coan Hall became, for several generations,a Ball Home
Capt. Richard Whittington Wright was born, circa 1633 , in London,England. He died, 1 Dec 1663, in Chickacone, Northumberland, Co., VA.Richard was the fourth child of Francis and Ann Merriton Wright. He cameto America in 1655, settling in Northumberland Co., VA. He met andmarried Ann Mottrom, who had been born in England in 1639. She was thedaughter of Col. John Mottrom a wealthy landowner and member of the Houseof Burgesses. Richard was the administrator of Col. Mottrom's estate. In1658, Richard Wright was granted 2200 acres of land on the west side ofthe Potomac River in Westmorland County, Virginia. From Col. Mottrom, healso received 963 acres for his marriage to Ann. There was another 500acres received from a Thomas Brereton and 737 acres granted fortransporting 15 persons to America. In 1661, he and his brother-in-law,Col. Nicholas Spencer, secured a patent to 1100 acres of land atPascattaway on the Potomac River. Some of this land was later acquired bythe Washington family and became part of George Washington's home, MountVernon. He served as Justice from 1657 until his death. His will wasdated 16 August 1663 and proved in Northumberland Co., VA 10 Dec 1665(Record Book 1658-66, Pg 104). He left his estate to his wife, Ann, andhis children, Mottrom, Francis, and Ann.
Ann Mottrom, daughter of Col. John Mottrom, 1657, in

Immigration: before 1655, in VA. Ann was the daughter of Col. John
Mottrom. He was one of the founders of Northumberland Co., VA and its
first representative in the Virginia House of Burgesses. After Richard
Wright's death, Ann remarried to David Fox by whom she had two
children, William and Elizabeth Fox. David Fox died in 1669. Ann's
third marriage was to Col. St. Ledger Codd in 1670. Five children may
have been born to this marriage, James, Berkley, St. Leger, Beatrix,
and Mary Codd.
WHAT IS A MARRIAGE BOND?
A marriage bond was an assurance that there was no impediment to the
marriage (previous marriage, under age or without parental consent, etc.).
Here is the pertinent law in Virginia, from the 1819 Code of Virginia,
"16. Every license for marriage shall be issued by the clerk of the court
of that county or corporation, wherein the feme usually resides, in
manner following, that is to say; the clerk shall take bond, with good
security, for the sum of one hundred and fifty dollars, payable to the
Governor of the Commonwealth, for the time being, and his successors, for
the use of the Commonwealth, with condition that there is no lawful cause
to obstruct the marriage, for which the license shall be desired; and
every clerk failing herein shall forfeit and pay one hundred and fifty
dollars: ... "
"Good security" indicates that the full amount of the bond was not
collected. Just like a modern bail bond, only part of the sum was paid,
and it was probably a very small amount, if anything at all. The surety
was the person who guaranteed that if the person making the bond did not
pay the bond amount, he would do so (in other words, if for some reason
it was later found that there had been an impediment to the marriage).
As you can see, the bond was required when the license was obtained. For
many years in Virginia a couple had the choice of obtaining a license, or
following the older custom of publishing or crying banns. Rarely did
people do both, which is why you will not find marriage licenses for many
early Virginia marriages. Sometime in the 19th century banns were dropped
and all marriages had to be preceded by obtaining a license (and bond
As to who the bond pertained to, clearly the statute does not say.
However, the encyclopedic AMERICAN JURISPRUDENCE notes that in the vast
majority of suits claiming fraud in the marriage, the plaintiff was a
woman. In a day when a married woman's property came to the use of her
husband, the woman had far more to lose than the man where one party lied
to or deceived the other to effect the marriage.
This requirement for a marriage bond was dropped by the time the statutes
were re-codified in 1849 in Virginia. The dates will, of course, vary
state by state.
