While the data on the American descendants is very accurate, the information on which family Deacon Samuel belonged to is not. The particular Samuel Wright that is cited in this book as being Deacon Samuel is not the same person at all.
It appears that Deacon Samuel Wright was the son of John Wright and Martha Castel, grandson of Lord John Wright and Emfell Linsell, and great grandson of Myddle John Wright.
I would refer anyone to the research contained on the website www.footprints.com, maintained by Don Wright (who has never proven any relationship to this particular family line). He as collected well over 140,000 people related to the Wright family on his extremely well researched and documented database.
SO awesome to read this book and have it for future generations!! A very comprehensive and well-done account.
As it is a little old though, there have been some changes to the fact that we DO now have the records of Sir John's predessors.
