Notes


"February 13, 1748, at Albemarle County, Virginia, Francis Wright executed a lease for 300 acres of land from John Chiswell: (the complete text is available in the Bob Grant document.) NOTE: a witness to this lease was John Wright, which could be a brother or other relative that came to Virginia with Francis.


Francis Wright of Amherst County resided in King William Co., VA; then on February 13, 1748, at Albemarle Co., VA; on May 8, 1750, at Louisa Co., VA; and died between December 9, 1766, and September 7, 1767, at Amherst Co., VA.


Sources for Francis Wright: Amherst Co., VA - Will Book 1:110. Will dated 9 December 1766, probated on 7 September 1767. Witnesses: David Woodruff, Jno. Waters, Anna Waters. The executors were his sons, John Wright and Isaac Wright.


He lived in Louisa Co. VA, where he and his wife, Mary, appear in a deed in Deed Book 1:404, 405.


His wife's name, Mary Hawkins, was given by Thomas Harding Ellis's article in the Amherst Enterprise newspaper in 1879. Ellis was a descendant of Francis and Mary Wright. This article is called ELLIS MEMORANDUM originally written by T.H. Ellis in 1849.


THE DEEDS OF ALBEMARLE CO. AND AMHERST CO. VIRGINIA compiled by Bailey Fulton Davis is full of deeds relating to Francis and his family and other Wright families of Amherst Co.


The Shelton Family Manuscript in Jones Memorial Library, Lynchburg, Va. is based on T. H. Ellis' article as mentioned above. He descended through Richard Shelton and wife, Mary Wright, one of the daughters of Francis Wright. Richard and probably Mary Shelton are buried in the family burying ground on Harris Creek above Lynchburg, Va.
See also Amherst
Co. deed Bk E:321 for them.


The son-in-law, John Waters, of Francis Wright is found in Amherst Co. Deed Bk D:422. He was a Revolutionary Soldier , Captain William Tucker's Militia Company in 1781, mentioned in AMHERST COUNTY IN THE REVOLUTION by Lenora Sweeny.


(Additional records compiled by Mary Hicks)
Information sources are the Ellis genealogy, Knoxville Library, Knoxville, Tennessee and Louisa Co. deed book of 1742-1759, also found in the Knoxville Library. Meade's Old Churches and Ministers of Virginia. Other information came from Chalkley's Chronicles of Scotch Irish Settlement in Virginia.


Deed found in "Louisa Co. Deed" 1742-1759 shows a conveyance from Francis Wright and Mary, King William Co., Dated May 8, 1750. (Louis Co., King Wm. Co, and Hanover Co., are adjoining counties near Richmond, Virginia.) Francis & Mary, his wife, of St. David's Parrish, King William Co., to John Thomson of St. Paul's Parrish, Hanover Co., Merchant. 100 lbs currency money, 800 acres on Contrary, Nicholas Meriwether's corner, near Mills tract, Ambrose Joshua Smith's corner, Col. Meriwether's line.
Francis (F) Wright
Wit: John Waters, Charles Cunningham, Jas. Grantland. Oct. 23, 1750, acknowledged by Francis Wright, Mary, his wife, relinquished right of dower.


Deed of land to John Hawkins of Hanover Co. The land described in in Louisa Co, although does not strictly say so. About a year later there is entry signed by John Hawkins as follows: "8 November 1752--I have received a deed of conveyance from John Sims of Hanover Co. for 200 acres on Turkey Cock Swamp in Louisa Co adjoining lines of Snelson & John Tait and Thomas rice. On surveying land it was found only 175 acres was enclosed. (This John Hawkins was possibly the father of Mary.)


In the Virginia Historical Magazine, Vol III, it tells of the causes of discontent in Virginia, prior to the Revolution. It mentions Major Thomas Hawkins and his wife Mary. The footnote enumerates the land grants given Major Hawkins, and tells that part of the land had formerly belonged to Thomas Luca, Sr. In an index of wills the will of this Thomas Lucas, Sr., who mentioned his son-in-law, Capt. Thomas Hawkins, and his granddaughter Mary Hawkins. Another article says that John Upton's widow, Margaret married Thomas Luca. Near the end of the article a statement is made that it is probable that she had been married (before Col. Upton) to a man by the name of Underwood, and that her daughter Mary Underwood married Capt. Thomas Hawkins.


Deeds of Amherst Co., VA, 1761-1807, and Albemarle Co., VA 1748-1763, by Davis. Found that in March 1792 the administrator of the estate of Thomas Lucas had delivered 2 slaves which were the property of Martha Lucas before marriage (name Martha was possible misread). The note mentions 2 bonds of Nicholas Pryor and Isaac Wright. It also mentions that the "org. del." to Jas Shelton. From the Ellis memo it is found that Isaac Wright's sister Mary married Richard Shelton, and they had a daughter who married Josiah Ellis, brother to our Susannah Ellis. This ties our family to the Lucas/Upton/Underwood family. Colonel Moore Fauntleroy is mentioned in the Ellis Memo, and we find that Susannah Harding (who married Charles Ellis) was the daughter of Thomas Harding who came to Virginia with "Captain" Moore Fauntleroy, May 22, 1650. Also mention of Margaret Graham, who would have been a granddaughter of Cap. John Upton.

**************
"I have just received an email from one of my very distant cousins Jay Wright who is a descendant of John Wright (Goochland County Carpenter) and his 12 marker DNA sequencing matches with one mutation the sequencing of two descendants of 1767 Francis Wright of Amherst County!


The parents of 1767 Francis Wright of Amherst County have not as yet been determined.


The parents of John Wright (Goochland County Carpenter) have also not been determined.


But with this DNA sequencing, we at least know that 1767 Francis Wright of Amherst County and John Wright (Goochland County Carpenter) were probably related and probably fairly closely in time, although the sequencing of markers 13 to 25 will be needed to refine that proximity in time.


As additional material of interest, I offer the following:


1690 Francis Wright of Lancaster County, Virginia, had sons Francis Wright, Jr., Charles, and John.


The son Francis Wright, Jr., was an adult in 1697 and moved from Lancaster County in about 1718. 1767 Francis Wright first appeared in Louisa County in 1742. Louisa County was formed in 1742 from Hanover County. We have speculated that Francis Wright, Jr., and 1767 Francis Wright might be the same person, but have not yet been able to document that connection.


The son John Wright has been identified as 1730 John Wright of Goochland County who married Elizabeth Meredith. The land of 1730 John Wright was south of the James River in Goochland County. The land of John Wright (Goochland County Carpenter) was north of the James River in Goochland County.


1690 Francis Wright of Lancaster County might have had a brother John Wright, based on John Wright acting as the appraiser of 1690 Francis Wright's estate. That John Wright was possibly described in Lancaster County court records as a bricklayer and/or plasterer (they might be two different John Wrights and might be father and son). John Wright (Goochland County Carpenter) was, of course, a carpenter.


Obviously, more research is required to determine whether there is any connection between 1690 Francis Wright of Lancaster County and 1767 Francis Wright of Amherst County and John Wright (Goochland County Carpenter), but I thought you would all find this of great interest. Best wishes, Bob Grant"
