This family entered the printed literature with William Barry, A History of Framingham, Massachusetts, Including
the Plantation, from 1640 to the Present Time (Boston: James Munroe and Company, 1847), 450, 451. Barry takes some
care to distinguish Edward Wright of Concord from his namesake at Sudbury; Charles Henry Pope, The Pioneers of
Massachusetts: A Descriptive List, Drawn from Records of the Colonies, Towns, and Churches and Other Contemporaneous
Documents (Boston, 1900), 516, combines them. Donald Lines Jacobus, The Bulkeley Genealogy (New Haven, Conn.,
1933), 26-8, gives the family a very brief summary based on research by Clarence Almon Torrey. The documentary basis,
however, is greatly clarified by Joy F. (Hartwell) Peach,
Who Were John Hartwells (W)right Wives?
Massog 15 (1991): 2-3, featuring a nearly complete summary of the immigrants family. The English chronology
of the Wright family is expanded from Middlesex County Deeds, 4:409-13, FHL microfilm 554,001, now accessible via
