For those with access to these, could someone have a look at this will and see if there is any mention of  folks with the surname Sharp or Heywood please

Hi Kiwihugh,

Unfortunately, neither of those names mentioned. The  will is short - barely half a page - the wife get the lot, basically. These are the only people mentioned:

Last Will and Testament of Joseph WRIGHT of Greenwich.
Wife (widow, the relict) Rebecca WRIGHT, sole Executrix
Charles ROACH, occupier of lands & property belong to Joseph, "situate and being on Deptford Bridge, Greenwich" now bequeathed to the sole use of Rebecca.
Witness: John Drake FINCH, Solicitor, J WARNER & John SWALLING, Clerks to  Msrs SMITH & FINCH, Greenwich
Will written in 14 April 1836.
Will proved 24 March 184, London, on the oath of Rebecca

Cheers
AMBLY

Hi lizdb. Just struggled out of bed. Too early considering how late I was up with my new find. First new sibling in six years  ;D. But no. Amazing though. Mines Dad was also a Richard but Mum was Elizabeth, but  her brother Joseph lived in Greenwich. But thirteen children eliminates them. This family seems to have a genetic disposition to few children and branchs even becoming extinct. Only two have thrived -   my sub branch of Hampsons ( family lore says my greats father was horrified when she married a fresh off the boat accountant from LIVERPOOL - read book keeper to his eyes) and my 2 greats brotherJames Barnes Heywood who also came to NZ but then they near totally returned to England before they began redisperseing. I came across only the second mis spelling of hEywOOd last night.  Turns out Joseph made it to 1874 in Thanet Kent, a widower living alone and his death was recorded as j. haAywARd w. Wife Sophia Jane died 1870 in Thanet as well. Again no surviving children. About to retackle sister Ann who married a John Sharp.
Another wacky middle name explained from by 2 greats siblings. This brother even went by Sharp(e) Heywood.
Post script 3 branchs. The Mullins of Mullins Tyres in South Australia have thrived as well.

Haywood is one of those names with several spellings - Haywood, Heywood, Hayward, Heyward etc.

Lots of Haywoods (etc) about in Kent! So - Good luck with your ongoing research.
