Title: Edward son of Roger Prichard a Quaker family of Almeley
Post by: Alberbury on Wednesday 16 January 13 20:29 GMT (UK)
Help needed to find a marriage between Elizabeth Pritchard and Henry Wright.
I know my Henry was a Quaker, tobacco seller and Chapman in Mardol, Shrewsbury, Shropshire. The Quaker meeting house was in St. John's Hill, Shrewsbury. The records can be viewed from this link, http://www.melocki.org.uk/salop/ShrewsburyFriends.html
This also shows the Prichard family of Almeley.
From a National Archives search I found a link, that Edward Prichard and Henry Wright had land in Tredyffrin, Pennsylvania. Purchased by Welsh Gentlemen. So there is another connection between the families.

Henry Wright's origins remain to be discovered. He may have
emigrated from Shrewsbury, Shropshire (Doliante, Page 938).

Not sure if this is the same Henry Wright, maybe an act of bigamy.
