A James WRIGHT (1701-1760) married a Temperance WHITTLESEY (1703-1764) in 1721/22 in Saybrook, Middlesex Co., CT. James was born and died in Saybrook, CT and his wife died there, also. I am interested in the names of their children and their date of births. All I know at this point is that they had a son George b. 1736 in Westbrook, Middlesex Co., CT and a dau. Phebe. Thanks for any help!

In the Saybrook Colony Vital Records, extracted form Land Records it has James Wright married Temperance Whittelsey ye 4th day of January 1722. Their son James was born ye 28th day of July 1723.
It doesn't list any of the other children.

Thanks for the info. I know that there has to be more children. The only two that I have a record for are James (b. 1723) and George (b. 1736). If James and Temperance were m. in 1722 then they would of had children from abt. 1723- 1747. So there are definitely more of their children to be discovered. Maybe the records are lost. They would be in either the Saybrook or Westbrook Vital records for Middlesex Co., CT.

I have found children that you are seeking info on for James and Temperance. They had a daughter Temperance, bpt. March 24, 1733/34. George, bpt. Nov. 21, 1736. I don't see a listing for a Phoebe however, I do have Ambrose, s. James, died Jan. 1727. Another Ambrose born April 1728. Christopher bpt. My-Nov. 1739. Wise, s. James, b. March 1731. All of this information is from the Congregational Church Records of Westbrook, CT 1725-1899. Hope this helps.

Thanks so much Tricia for this info! I really appreciated it! I was hoping that they had a son John, also. Do you know if the Westbrook vital records are accessible on the internet? You have provided much more info than I had before. Thanks again. Joe

I should of read your WRIGHT info more carefully that you sent as I have come up with some questions.

1. Is there a DOB for the son James who died on 1/1727? From the records that I have gatheresd so far, they show that James and Temperance WRIGHT had a son James b.
7/28/1723 and m. a Submit BUELL in 1748.

2. Was there a DOB for the first Ambrose?

3. Was Christopher baptised sometime between May (My)and Nov. 1739?

4. Was there a DOB for Wise WRIGHT?

(DOB is for date of birth)

Thanks for any help with the above questions.

Hi Joe,

I do not know of anywhere that these records are posted. Everything that I have given is out of Church Records that are separate from Vital Records.

Hi Again,

Have been digging through some other records to see what I could find. I have more info that I can give you but it may be easier to share directly rather than posting here. I am still looking to see what else I can find. Is there a particular line you are trying to track on the children? I will let you know what I learn.

I was hoping that James and Temperance WRIGHT had a son John or possibly a son David. I will send you an e-mail message.
