Wanted Names - Brickwalls
W : England > Warwickshire
Wright Wednesday, 17 March 2010
Here is my brickwall: Looking for information on my great grandfather, Herbert Edward Wright, born about February 29, 1883 in Leamington, Warwickshire. Another birthdate I have for him is February 28, 1882. Emmigrated to Canada in 1895. Parents on Herbert's death certificate listed as Edward Wright and Elizabeth Prew. He has a brother Rupert Alfred Wright, born about 1891. In the 1901 Canadian census he is in a Montreal orphanage with his brother John, born about 1888. Rupert's marriage certificate lists his parents as Edward Wright and Elizabeth Summers and his place of birth as Leamington, England. I have not been able to find any UK records for Herbert or Rupert or their parents. I first thought their records may have been with the burned records, but I understand they were miliatry records that were lost. They have a close link with a Williams family from Redditch, Worcesteshire (Albert, Eliza, Julia, Annie and Emma), and another Williams family, headed by Gertie W. Williams and Duncan Williams, and Duncan's elderly mother called Annie. All my information has come from Canadian records.
