About Margaret Wright

Richard Wright of Lynn, Boston, Braintree & Seekonk, was born in England about 1598. He married January 8, 1625/6 Margaret ( .. ) Padding at St. Dunstan's, Stepney, Middlesex, England (2nd wife?); at the time he was of Ratcliffe-Carman of Middlesex.

He came to New England with the Winthrop fleet in 1630. He was accompanied by three of his daughters and his mother, Margaret Wright. (His two daughters in depositions made seventy-one years later, said that they had come with "their father," with no mention of a mother.)

Harris and Prittie (1994) state that Richard Wright married a woman named Margaret in Stepney, Middlesex, England on Jan. 8, 1625/26, though they claim she was not the mother of his five daughters.

He married 3rd, before 1643 to Mary Busche, widow of Richard Sabin.

Children of Margaret & Richard Sabin include

  • 1. Sarah Wright b. c 1643
  • 2. Elizabeth Wright b. c 1644
  • 3. prob Ann Wright b. c 1645

They did not have a daughter Mary (Wright) Sabin. That is a confusion with Capt Wright's 3rd wife.

No known relationship with Francis Cooke, "Mayflower" passenger.
