File contributed for use in USGenWeb Archives by: Janece Carter Streig streig3@aol.com June 19, 2005, 11:13 pm "Author: J. H. BEERS & Co. Commemorative Biographical Record of Middlesex County Connecticut J. H. Beers & Co., Chicago, 1903 Pages 685 – 688 James WRIGHT, son of Benjamin, the immigrant, was born in 1643, and died in 1727. His wife, Hannah WALSTONE, came from England to marry him, having been selected by a mutual friend. She died in 1719. A memorial tablet citing some of these facts is still to be found in the Clinton cemetery. As stated previously, James and his brother, Joseph, had difficulty in the division of their father’s estate. In 1791 a committee appointed by the Colonial General Assembly brought in their report concerning boundaries of land between James and Joseph WRIGHT, which was accepted by the General Assembly and confirmed to be a final issue of all controversy over land boundaries between them. In general terms the line between Killingworth and Saybrook was made the boundary of their farms, James holding on the Saybrook and Joseph on the Killingworth side. James is supposed to have resided at what has been known more recently as the Abner KIRTLAND place. The records of Oyster River Quarter show that he was a large landowner, deeds of land aggregating several hundred acres, located in what is now the town of Westbrook, having been given by him to various persons between 1720 and 1727. James and Hannah (WALSTONE) WRIGHT had three children, James, Benjamin (the next in line to Alfred Mortimer) and Mercy. James married Sarah WISE, by whom he had a son James. For his second wife he married Judith BUSHNELL, and they had a son Samuel, from whom are descended the WRIGHTS of Pond Meadow. Two brothers of a later generation of this branch, Joab and John, went to New Durham, N. Y., and from one of them descended Silas WRIGHT, Governor of New York and United States Senator from that State. Mercy WRIGHT married William STANNARD, and one of their descendants, Daniel STANNARD, resided in Westbrook."
