red mail Edmund Wright born 1640 North Meols
Can anyone help me sort out Edmund Wright who was born and died in Lancashire having Izabell Wright among his children?. The only Edmund (Edmond?) Wright I can find is the son of Nicholas Wright and Ane Beaupre and he emigrated to, and married in, America. While his forebears add some ilustrious names to my wife's lineage it is unlikely that he was born in North Meols, married a Sarah Wright in New York, and returned to die in Lancashire again! Several family trees I have been able to see accept this, but I hope someone can offer a more rational explanation. My thanks in advance
