You said the mother might have been 'Emma Waite', but from www.familysearch.org it appears Wright Almond(s) m. Sarah Waite in Baumber in 1835.
http://castlegarden.org/http://castlegarden.org/ shows that the family, including Wright, Sarah, daughter Emma (shown with the family in 1841) and son William, entered the US in 1870 on the Europa.
