Mary Wright

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Mary Report 29 Sep 2012 11:49

Hi. I'm trying to find a Mary Wright. Born about 1781. Don't know where. She was living in Bidston, Wirral, Cheshire in 1841 with a Mary Blackmore born about 1821 and a John Blackmore born about 1826. Not sure if she is the mother of Mary Blackmore. Mary Blackmore married a George Davies in 1842.

Start by getting Mary Blackmore's marriage cert, to find out who her father was

Who did Mary name as her father on her marriage to George Davies in 1842

If you'd looked at the 1841 image, you'd know that Mary Blackmore was Mary Wright's servant.....and that John was an Ag Lab

None of the three was born in Cheshire
