About Benjamin [husband of Jane Meigs] Wright, #2 (Contested)

http://files.usgwarchives.net/ct/middlesex/bios/wright2gbs.txt

Commemorative Biographical Record of Middlesex County Connecticut J. H. Beers & Co., Chicago, 1903, Pages 685 – 688

Benjamin WRIGHT, the first of the name in America, came from Bolton or Swale, in the north of England, to Guilford, Conn. early in the settlement of that plantation. His name does not appear in the first list of planters who came hither in 1639, but as only the names of heads of families are given he may have been of the number. He took the oath of fidelity, as shown by the town record, May 9, 1645. In September, that year, he was granted permission by the authorities to put up a tan mill and to take the water “yt issueth from ye waste gate provided it hurt not ye town mill.” In 1650 a list of planters was made out, and also a list of freemen, and his name appears in the former, but not in the latter, probably because he was not a church member, Guilford allowing only members of its church to be freemen, while other Colonies allowed members of any approved New England Church. In 1659—four years before the survey and allotment of land on what is now Main street, Clinton—he was a freeman and living at Kenilworth (later Killingworth, now Clinton), and his home is supposed to have been nearly opposite the Pierce JONES place, on the old Clinton and Westbrook road. He appears to have been a very large landholder, in 1671 giving his land at Hammonasset, in East Guilford, to his son-in-law, Joseph HAND, and his wife, Jane; and in the Reports of the Colonial Assembly is found frequent mention of his landed property in Saybrook. While living in Guilford he clashed with the authorities several times, not as a willful lawbreaker, but as a man who stoutly defended what he knew to be his rights. His death occurred March 28, 1677. He had children: Benjamin lived to become a freeman, but died without heirs. Joseph and James had considerable in the division of their father’s estate. John. Jonathan married Asena HAND, and removed to Wethersfield. Jane married Joseph HAND, of Long Island. Elizabeth married Edward LEE (or LAY), of Guilford. Anna married John WALSTONE, and, for her second husband, Dr. Peter DALLMAN.

-------------------- Benjamin Wright (1620-1677) is believed to have been born and raised in England. He married before 1640 to Jane Meigs (1622-1684) and they raised 6 children at Guilford, Connecticut. It is unclear whether they married before or after immigraion to America. Benjamin Wright is first noted at Guilford, CT in 1645 when he was granted leave to set up a "tan mill". He took the Oath of fidelity there on 04 May 1645. Benjamin Wright sought permission to purchase John Caffinch's Guilford homelot which had been sold to Thomas Standish of Whethersfield. Magistrate William Leete declared Benjamin Wright "no fit planter for such an accommodation". Benjamin Wright bought the homelot anyway and was then convicted of contempt of court and other "grave miscarriages" of like nature and he was whipped at New Haven in 1648. Benjamin Wright "seems to have been of a quarrelsome temperament and to have had unpleasant relations with many of the town's people" according to a Guilford report. Benjamin Wright and his family moved to Killingworth in 1659 which was 4 years before it was formally settled. Later records list him as being "of Saybrook" (1675), but he probably didn't move - it's likely the town lines changed. Benjamin Wright left his Guilford land to his daughter Jane and her husband Joseph Hand.

Daughter Jane Wright (1644-1724) married at East Guilford, Connecticut in about 1662 to Joseph Hand (1638-1725) and they raised 9 children there.
