(Note - The first settlement was wiped out by Indians in 1637, which killed Hugh Hillard, the first husband of Margaret (Elson) Hillard). A 3-acre homelot was recorded to him in Wethersfield on the 11th day of the 12th month in 1640.

[The following is not agreed upon and needs more research: After his wife, Mary, died about 1636 (probably in Massachusetts), Thomas married Margaret Butler by whom he may have had his sons Joseph and James.]

He m. 2) Mary, who d. Oct. 20, 1740 at Wethersfield. James had numerous children, but their identity is not well-proved.

After Thomas's second wife Margaret died about 1641, and some time after May 1, 1647, in Wethersfield, Connecticut Colony, Thomas married widow Margaret Elson Hillard, widow of Hugh Hilliard and John Elson. They had no children together but she had children from her first marriage to Hugh Hilliard and her will mentions her Hilliard grandchildren. She died without issue in 1670.

Thomas Wright bought a lot of land and would eventually have his own island, called "Wright Island" in the middle of the Connecticut River. The Indians called it Mannahannock ("Great Laughing Place"). A part of this island was still owned by the family in 1900. It would later be eroded away, though, and does not exist today.

Thomas Wright was a deputy to the General Court of Connecticut in 1643; served as a selectman in 1658; and was a commissioner on town-lines. His earmark for cattle was duly recorded and a fence tax recorded in 1647. He was made a freeman on May 11, 1654, and his name is in the 1659 list as a freeman at Wethersfield. He also was a constable and sat on juries in 1643, 1665, and 1666. Thomas Wright's name was also included in a 1642 list from Guilford, New Haven county, Connecticut for the assessment of the inhabitants of that town.

In his 1670 will, Thomas Wright Sr. gave his wife, Margaret, all the meat and drink in his house and, "all the linen that I have in my possession that was of her own spinning." (Stories of Wethersfield page 29)

Stiles' Anc. Wethersfield, II, 850 (after referingto various authorities which somewhat conflict q. v??) gives a ratherdoubtful English ancestry of Thomas as follows: JOHN WRIGHT, ESQ., LORD of Kelvedon Manor, Essex Co., Eng., 1538, died October 5, 1551. Hisgrandson by his son, Lord Robert (or as one account gives it, his son), 3. THOMAS WRIGHT, ESQ., of Brook Hall, So. Weald, Essex Co., Lord of the Manor of Great and Little Reapers, was buried October 21, 1607.His son, 4. JOHN WRIGHT, ESQ., ditto, was baptised September 13, 1577,and buried May 30, 1640, married Grace Glascock (dau. of Henry) of High Easter Parsonage, Essex Co. His son was 5. (110) THOMAS WRIGHT, SR., the Wethersfield settler, who came first probably to Watertown, Mass., and was of the Mass. Court of Assistants before the Colonial Government was established at Boston. He removed to Wethersfield probably about 1639. He was recognized as a man of influence and high standing. He owned an island in the Connecticut River, called by the Indians Mannahannock ("Great Laughing Place"), part of which was still owned by his descendants in 1900. He was deputy to the general court of Connecticut 1643, selectman 1658, Commissioner on town lines, etc. He and EnochBuck were constables 1668-9. He seems to have been prominent in the church fight which led to the removal to Hadley. Senator Elijah Boardman, grandfather of Mrs. M. W. Tyler, was fourth in the descent from hisson, Ensign Samuel as follows: Hannah Wright, Daniel Boardman, Sherman Boardman, Elijah Boardman, Caroline M. Boardman, Eliza M. (Schroeder) Tyler. [:ITAL]

New England Fams, Third Series, Vol IV, p 1991:WRIGHT This family can be definitely traced in England for four generations prior to the immigration to America of Thomas Wright, who came here some time before the year 1640. In old England, where family nameswere first assumed, he who wrought metals was called Smith, and he who wrought in wood was called Wright, hence both are classed as names derived from occupations. ... Thomas (2) Wright, son of John (2) Wright, was born in England, November 19, 1610, and died at Wethersfield, Connecticut, in 1670. He was the immigrant ancestor of this branch of the family. "Stiles' Ancient Wethersfield," vol. i, page 317, says that:Thomas Wright, the settler, came from Watertown before 1639. He had one homestead, three and one-half acres on the west side of High street, on which his house was built; probably before 1639; Robert Abbott, north, and Samuel Clark, south. Another homestead was received in 1654,a house, barn and five acres of land, bought of Samuel Hale, on the west side of Back street, between Luke Hitchcock, north, and land belonging to Matthew Griswold, south. He bought of Richard Belden a lot of twenty and a half acres in Westfield in 1654. He became by purchase the owner of a large part of the Great Island, thereafter known as "Wright's Island," which mostly hegave to his sons, Thomas and James, who bought other parcels of the island. Thomas had the north part and James the south part. Vol. ii, page 851, of the same work, says: "Thomas Wright came first probably to Watertown, Massachusetts. Was of the Massachusetts court of assistance before the colonial government was established in Boston, and removed to Wethersfield, probably about 1639. He was recognized as a man of influence and high standing. A house lot of three acres is recorded to him in Wethersfield, December 11, 1640, but his principal estate was anisland in the river called by the Indians Mannahannock' (Great Laughing Place); the Indians used to meet there and have games and wrestling, part of which ever since and is now owned by his lineal descendants." Thomas Wright was a deputy to the general court of Connecticut in 1643, selectman in 1658, and later commissioner on town lines. He was made foreman, May 11, 1654, was constable in 1668-69, and on the courtjury at Hartford during the latter year. He brought with him from England a wife and five children. He married (second) May 2, 1647, Margaret, widow of John Elsen, who had been killed by the Indians in the Wethersfield massacre of 1637. Before her marriage to Elsen she was the wife of High Hilliard, by whom she had three children--Ben, Job and John. She died in 1670-71. Her will, dated January 19, 1670, mentions her grandson William, son of Job Hillier, deceased; Margaret Woustan andSarah Holamouth, daughters of her son, Benjamin Hillier, and the wifeof her son, Thomas Wright. Children by first wife of Thomas Wright: James; Joseph, born about 1639; Thomas; Samuel, mentioned below; Lydia.[:ITAL]

Anc of Wm Boardman, pp 100-101:THOMAS WRIGHT, one of the early settlers of Wethersfield, Conn., was born in England, and baptized there November 19, 1610. Some say he was descended from John Wright, Bishop of Bristol, Winchester, and Lichfield, and was a cousin of Mr. Nathaniel Wright of London, one of the assistants of the first General Court of Massachusetts before the government was transferred to Boston. Others declare that he was the son of John Wright of Brook Hall, a great-grandson of John Wright, Lord of Kelvedon Manor. It is also said he was at Swamscott, now Exeter, in 1629 being one of the company of Colonel John Wheelwright, as appears from a deed given to them by the Indian Sagamores, and that he was admitteda freeman at Exeter in 1640. Stiles in his History of Wethersfield says he came first probably to Watertown. He appeared at Wethersfield, Conn., about 1640, a house lot being recorded to him February 11, 1640-41, and he was one of the jurors at a Particular Court in Hartford September 4, 1643. He held the office of Townsman in 1658-9 and was for many years a deacon in the church. The earliest homestead of Thomas Wright recorded was onthe west side of High street. He was a prominent land owner, and obtained by purchase nearly all of the Great Island, since known as "Wright's Island," lying in the Connecticut River between the two great natural divisions of the original township. He died in April, 1670, his will being dated the 21st of that month and his inventory, amounting to oe101 15s., being taken the 29th. He confirmed by will a division of his land previously made among his sons, and made provision for his wife Margaret. The name of the first wife of Thomas Wright, who came with him to Wethersfield is unknown. He married, 2nd, Margaret Elson, widow of John Elson or Elsen who had died in 1648. She died in 1671. Her will dated January 19, 1670, mentions William and Sarah Hilier, children of her sonJob Hilier, whose three other children are to have a portion, Margaret Wanton, daughter of the wife of her son Benjamin Hilier and the wifeof Thomas Wright her son. Possibly her first husband was Hugh Hilliard or Hillier. Her inventory taken April 4, 1671, amounted to oe82 19s.6d. [Manwaring's Hartford Probate Records, I: 261-263.] Children:I.
