Wrights of Hurworth, Berkenshaw and Accrington Updated November 17, 2006
About Our Family Research
I have been researching the Wrights who constitute my ancestors. My Grandfather, William Oliver Wright was born in Hurworth-on-Tees 1882. His father Renton was from Berkenshaw in West Yorkshire. His father William, was born in Birstal, West Yorks and his father, Thomas, was born near York. His father was from Dumfrieshire, Scotland by way of York. I have also launched into the Toft family of Cheltenham who were my mother's ancestors. She was a Feltham from Bristol, St.George and Kingswood. My whole study so far has some 37 surnames and 367 odd people listed. and goes back to the 1790's only.
