Stephen Wright ca 1710 - ca 1779
& Ann ? ca 1720- ca June 1796
of Nansemond County, Virginia

his parents  |  her parents


This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!! 

Children of Stephen Wright & wife Ann:   
1. Stephen Wright
2. Pensie Wright died ca 1790
         married 1st William Edward Moore died ca 1780
         married 2nd George Callis
3. William Wright died 1800 
          married ?

Capt King's Company: Wright, Miles (5 w, 5 b) Stephen (2 w 13 b) Moore, John Jun (4 w 9 b) John (9 w 6 b)

VA Newspaper clips

Wright, Stephen dec'd eaw. Matthew Phripp of Norfolk, VG 24 Jul 79

Wright, Stephen dec'd his ex Anne Wright will sell about 200 ac. of his land on the Western Branch near Norfolk, VGWeA 28 Feb 84

Wright, Mrs Ann of Norfolk died on Tues last in an advanced age NH 16 Jun 96, AGNPPA 17 Jun 96, AGGA 17 Jun 96, eaw her ex. Stephen  Wright NH 28 Jul 96, 29 Mar 98.


Norman J Flythe in a 1986 letter to fellow researchers: I have a deposition of Wm Edward Moore (son of W E Moore) which gives his age in 1812 and shows him younger than James Wright Moore according to birthdate of James Wright Moore as given me by James Elliott Moore (the date given below). You note George Callis as guardian of the two Moore boys when they lost property to the British and he also had a claim. I infer from this that George Callis was their step-father. He later moved to Norfolk. We have a list of his children and I think George Jr was half-brother to James Wright Moore & William Edward Moore. I think their mother was a Wright and died before Callis went to Norfolk and this is when James Moore took the two boys into his home and he and Stephen Wright became involved with the estate of Wm Moore. There is a will of a William Wright who died about 1800 leaving his property to his son James Wright, but if he died before 21 with no heirs to go to his nephew George Callis. George Callis Sr died about the time Wm Wright did. James Wright evidently died without issue as his property was sold by Stephen Wright, Executor and some others. I think Wm Wright was brother to the mother of James Wright Moore. He probably was brother of Stephen Wright.
