Wright Family : United Kingdom Updated July 13, 2005
About Our Family Research
I have been researching my Family History for about 3 years. It started from my Great Grandfather (James Wright), whose campaign medals were handed down to me. He spent his time fighting for the British Empire in South Africa in the Zulu War, then in India, where he met his wife (Mary Anne Sullivan) and they had four of thier five children...Albert, Donald, Francis and Winifred. James came back to Woolwich Barrack in 1900, and they had thier fifth child, John Charles Wright, who was my Grandfather. My Grandfathers Brothers, Donald and Francis were both killed in 1915 in The Great War.
I would like to trace my roots further back, I know they seemed to originate from Chesham, Bucks.....and that is were I plan to research further.
