Looking for any information on the Wright family of Kildare, my gggrandmother Ann Wright born Kildare around 1830 daughter of John and Martha, brother Samuel. Her father John was a horse breeder for the army. Maybe church of Ireland. I am having trouble finding her family in Kildare or a birth cert for her.

Unfortunately, you definitely won't find a birth cert for Ann since Civil Registration of births only commenced in Ireland in Jan 1864 - your only hope, therefore, is a baptism record.
On ancestry.com, there is the following record for John Wright:
Ireland, Tithe Applotment Books, 1823-1837
Name: John Wright
County: Kildare
Parish: Carbury
Townland: Ballyhegan
Year: 1833 & 1834
This might give you a parish to search for Ann or Samuel's baptisms.

On Griffiths Valuation Ireland http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation there is a Samuel Wright living in Castledermot, Co. Kildare. Lots of other Wright's there too.

I had a look for you on IFHF/RootsIreland (pay) site for a baptism for either Ann or Samuel, but no luck; however, there are 5 baptisms in Kildare between 1821-1829 for children with father John Wright & mother M (specifying Martha didn't give any results, but just putting the initial M did). Don't know if this is of any help.
If their father worked for the Army, perhaps he moved around, and Ann & Samuel were born somewhere else?
Anyway, happy hunting!

This might have nothing to do with your Wright family but you should know that General Joseph Holt of the Irish rebellion of 1798 had relatives named Wright. It is mentioned in his memoirs. He was passing the area that they lived when he mentioned Mr Wright his relative.

I cannot remember the area now but you will find it in The Memoirs of Joseph Holt. available to download free on www.archives.org This website has loads of free historic books. There are two volumes but it will probably be in the first volume which is about his time in ireland. the second volume is mainly about his time in Australia and his eventual pardon after which he returns to Ireland.

I should have mentioned that there were also quite a few Holt families living in Kildare in the 1830's, so it's quite likely these two families are somehow connected.

Thank you Jack, I hope this helps many Wright families. I am looking for much earlier Wrights, adults in 1798.
