|This is a record of the Lake and Wright families. The oldest identified Lake family ancestor is from the island of Martinique. Descendants can be found throughout the Carribean, but primarily on the island of St. Kitts. The Lynch, Caines and Henderson members of the family emigrated to the United States and Canada.|
The oldest identified Wright family member is Franklin Wright, born in New Orleans, Louisiana approximately 1810 in slavery. The Wright family migrated to New York and then Massachusetts. It then joined with the Allen, Thornton and Bosworth families of Virginia, and finally the Lynch family which by that time had settled in Masachusetts.
There are other family branches including the Allen and Dewberry families from Montserrat and other family names such as Derosa, Kelsey, Westmoreland, Campbell, Chinn, Cooke, Moore, and many others. If you have information related to these family groups which are primarily African-American, please feel free to contact me.
