Wright Player 1750c. Littlebury, Essex

Sue Report 30 Sep 2019 22:06

Hi all, hoping someone can help.? As the new Essex records are available .

The above, Wright Player married Elizabeth Parish, b.1750, Wenden Lofts, Essex on 21/10/1773 in Wenden Lofts.

First child, Charles, b.12/5/776, Littlebury, Essex.
No other siblings until 1790, when Rebecca, Sarah and Ann were baptised in 1790, and Susan bap. 1793.

It occurred to me that this is a very long gap between children, or perhaps Elizabeth died, and Wright remarried. but can find no records.

Help please. Thanks in ad vance, Sue

:-) :-)

FMP and Ancestry both have the above baptisms for children of Wright and Elizabeth - but they are only transcripts.

I would imagine that the 3 children baptised on 26th Dec. 1790 were born at different times and not baptised immediately, but done as a "batch". The originals may show a birth date.
Sorry, don't have a subscription - you can buy a 24 hour sub. for £20 or a week for £30
They say -
Online, you can view images of a few records for free, but for most digitised records – such as parish registers, wills and electoral registers – you need to register and buy a subscription. has lots of Players in Essex, but Littlebury not transcribed

Hi Greyghose,

Many thanks for the above. Yes, unfortunately the transcripts dont seem to give parents names.! I agree with the batch of 3 baptisms.

I have had subs to SEAX in the past for other families but was hoping as at last Essex Records are here on Ancestry to at last find results.!!!

Sue :-)
