WRIGHT Family Summary

17-19C, Mousehole, Cornwall


with family trees T0, T0A, T0X, T4, T5, T5A, T6, T7A, T7B, T8



The earliest parish register record of the WRIGHT family at Mousehole is the marriage of Martin in 1607.  But by the time of the 1851 census there were nearly 100 individuals of that name in the parish.  


Family trees for this family in the parish have been constructed, all descended from the 1607 marriage of Martin.  The tree is based solely on plausible interpretations of the parish register and the 41, 51 and 61 census.  It is almost inevitable that this tree contains errors, particularly as some names such as Martin and John recur frequently.  The reasoning behind the assumptions made in creating the tree are given in a data file


It was also assumed that the family was not augmented by WRIGHTs from other parishes.  This of course may not be true, but it is noteworthy that only four WRIGHT individuals in the 1851 census were not born in the parish, and only one of these was a head of household.  He was not included in the tree.


Almost all men in Mousehole became fishermen, but this can be confirmed from census and parish data only from the late 18thC, and in the WRIGHT family below, only from John (6) and Richard (5).  They nearly all married, baptised their children, and were buried in the parish church of Paul.
