Surnames: Wright and Estey
Hello to all fellow researchers,

I have recently begun to research a branch of my New Brunswick family. I have a Zebulon Wright who married Anna Bloodworth. I know almost nothing about them, but I have been enticed with the possibility that Zebulon Wright may have been the son of Nathaniel Wright and Susanna Estey.

As I've searched on the internet, I've found quite a bit of information on the Estey family, but I've never been able to find any information on Nathaniel and Susanna (Estey) Wright, not even a marriage date. Does anyone know anything about this couple? Did they indeed have children? Right now all that I have are: roughly right place, roughly right time, and the right names. I sure seems likely that Susanna might have named a son Zebulon.

Thanks,
Jason

Since Susanna (Estey) Wright may well be Susannah Estey b. 2UAG1769 (possibly in Rowley, Essex Co., Massachusetts; possibly in Maugerville, now in Sunbury Co., New Brunswick), d/o Zebulon and Mary (Molly) (Brown) Estey; I would think the chances that Zebulon Wright was her son is quite high. (Zebulon came to NB on Capt. Francis Peabody's schooner, 15JAN1765; which is why I suspect Susannah was b. Maugerville, not Rowley.)
One web site on the Estey family does suggest that Nathaniel Wright's wife was this daughter, Susannah, at:
http://www.myfamilyhistory.com/Towne/pafg14.htm#124
It does not, however, list their children. Another, now defunct, site states that Susannah m. 1st Isaac Chase, 2nd Justin Wright.
Nathaniel Wright petitioned for land in Sunbury Co (1785 twice) and in Queens Co. (1791, 1793, 1802.) In 1791, he petitioned with Nehemiah 'Easty', whom, I believe, was a s/o Zebulon Esty; therefore probably Susannah's brother. If Nehemiah was he b. ca. 1794, d. 30JUL1877, he ended up in Carleton Co., but I gather that was a son.
It would seem that Nathaniel Wright at least knew the family of Zebulon Estey; and there is some opinion that he married Zebulon's daughter; so it seems reasonable to suspect; if location and timing seem right, that Zebulon may have been named after his maternal grandfather.
A web site at:
http://www.jenngen.com/ne/fam00243.htm
states as much, and lists amongst Zebulon Wright's children, Zebedee Wright, who was in Carleton Co. in 1871. Another son, Thomas Wright presumably is he who ended up in Arthurette, Victoria Co. I suspect I have met some descendants in Plaster Rock, years ago.
Since Nathaniel Wright came in 1783 as a single man on the "Two Sisters", with Uriah Wright (with a wife and 7 children) I would suspect he was Uriah's son. Since they were from New York; I would suspect they were connected with the Westchester Co. Wright's; especially around North Castle. Uriah, however, seems to have come from South East or Frederick Precincts, Fishkill, Dutchess Co., NY. However, in an indictment against him and others (20OCT1776), the others include names: Brundage, Merritt, Fowler, Theal and 'Dickeson', which I would associate with Westchester Co.

Mr. Murray,

Re: "However, in an indictment against him and others (20OCT1776), the others include names: Brundage, Merritt, Fowler, Theal and 'Dickeson', which I would associate with Westchester Co."

Yes, these names originally are names from Westchester County, but these and other Westchester County families began to settle in the northern reaches of Westchester County and Dutchess County well before 1776. So it is not inconsistant that Uriah Wright is from South East or Frederick Precincts, Dutchess Co., NY, and others he is associated with are family names of Westchester County.

I would like your help on something of interest to me in your post, that is, the indictment dated 20 Oct. 1776 entered against Brundage, Merritt, Fowler, Theal, Dickeson, and others. Do you have the whole text of this document and/or a reference to where I can find it. Post it if you are able. I'm a Westchester County researcher presently working on the Theall family and 20 Oct. 1776 indictment is essential to my research since it is the Loyalists of this family that I am most interested in at this time.

Thanks

Thank you so much for your response which I just now discovered (I've been away from things for awhile). It sure does feel good to me to assume that Zebulon Wright was the grandson of Zebulon Estey. However, I'm going to continue my search.

Thanks,
Jason
