Deacon John Wright

He came to Salem in New England in 1630. He was an early settler, taking an active part in organizing the town of Woburn (being one of the signers of the "Town Orders") in Massachusetts, 10 miles north west of Boston. He became a Selectman, Deacan, etc.

It should be remembered that the arrival of the Mayflower at Plymouth was only ten years prior to Wright's coming. The Mayflower had left England on Sept. 6, 1620 with 102 passengers (three of which were pregnant women) and a crew of about 30. They anchored in what is now Provincetown Harbor on November 11, 1620.

Twenty thousand men and women emigrated between 1628 and 1640. At the time of Wright's emigration Charles I was on Englands Throne. Barely a year before Champlain had surrendered Quebec to the English.
