It might be worth seeing who registered Joseph Wright's death which according to an online tree was in 1841. If it's his son John at an address he is listed at on the census that would tie the two together.

Did any family members leave wills as again that might help sort out which Joseph?

Hello Eileen
Sorry I missed the previous messages you put on last year.  I also lean towards the Hawkridge marriage as there is a Henry Hawkridge Wright baptised as a child of a Joseph and Mary and the name Henry seems to follow through in the family a little.  Haven't done much work on the Wrights recently.  Trying to get my husband to take a DNA test, he's not too interested at the moment but I'll keep working on him!

Kind regards

Michelle

The family say they are descended from John and Kit Wright who collaborated with Guy Fawkes, also Dick Whittington.
