About Deacon Joseph Wright

His first wife was Mary Wright, and after her death in 1683 he married Mercy Deming Curtis, the widow of Joseph Curtis.


Joseph Wright, the son of Thomas Wright and probably his second wife, Margaret Butler, was born, probably in England or Massachusetts, about 1639. He was a cooper by trade. In 1662 he received from his father a homestead on the east side of High street near the burying ground. This he conveyed to the town for use as a parsonage in 1664, receiving a lot with an old schoolhouse on it, on the west side of Rose lane (Main street) in exchange. This he conveyed to Hugh Welles in 1665, and received in exchange a lot on the east side of High street, north of his first home.

Joseph Wright was chosen Constable in 1672 and 1703 and Townsman in 1690 and 1691. He also held many minor offices. He was called "Captain" in 1690, and "Corporal" in 1703. He was also a Deacon in the church.

He was buried in the Wethersfield cemetery, where his gravestone has this inscription: Here | lyeth the | body of Decon | Joseph Wright, | who departed | this life the 17th | day of December, | Anno Dom. 1714, | aged 75 years. In his will, dated February 14, 1711-12, he mentions his wife, Mercy, and living children. [Hartford Probate Records, Vol. 9, page 21.]

The first wife of Joseph Wright was Mary Stoddard, daughter of John Stoddard and Mary Foote, who was born in Wethersfield, Hartford county, Connecticut on March 12, 1643/4, and married December 10, 1663. She died there August 23, 1683. Joseph Wright married, second, in Wethersfield, March 10, 1685, Mercy Stoddard, the younger sister of his first wife, who was born in November, 1652. She survived her husband. Each of these daughters received 36 pounds at the distribution of their father's estate, March 2, 1664-5.

[Curator's Note: Above based on the Foote Genealogy, but it appears that it was in error and that the second wife was Mercy Deming Curtis.]

Biography ==There is some uncertainty about Joseph's mother, whether it is Mary Cranbrook or Margaret Butler.

JOSEPH WRIGHT, SR., b. March 03, 1638/9, possibly England or Massachusetts; d. December 17, 1714, (age 75) Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut.

Alternate Birth Theories===Joseph Wright, the son of Thomas Wright and probably his second wife, Margaret Butler, was born, probably in England or Massachusetts, about1639.

Deacon Joseph Wright, s. of Thomas Wright, Esq. & Mary Cranbrook, b. Mar. 5, 1639/40 either at Watertown, Mass. or Wethersfield, Conn. He died testate at Wethersfield Dec. 17, 1714, Æ 75 (g.s.).

Life<ref>Find A Grave</ref> ===Joseph was a cooper by trade. In 1662 he received from his father a homestead on the east side of High street near the burying ground. This he conveyed to the town for use as a parsonage in 1664, receiving a lot with an old schoolhouse on it, on the west side of Rose lane (Main street) in exchange. He conveyed the old schoolhouse lot to Hugh Welles in 1665, and received in exchange a lot on the east side of High street, north of his first home.

Joseph Wright was chosen Constable in 1672 and 1703 and Townsman in 1690 and 1691. He also held many minor offices. He was called "Captain" in 1690, and "Corporal" in 1703. He was also a Deacon in the church. During his lifetime he held several prominent civic positions in developing the town of Wethersfield as well as the Province of Connecticut.He was also a deacon of the Wethersfield Congregational church.

Marriages ===Joseph apparently married twice, but the identities of his wives is not certain.

Joseph Wright married his first wife, Mary, on December 10, 1663, at Wethersfield.<ref name="Wethersfield310">Wethersfield Vital Records</ref> No maiden name is given in the record for Mary.
