Hi billyboob and welcome to rootschat from me also. Going by all that has been posted so far and if correct which does seem very likely I have gone backwards with timelines as well.

John Wright born c1837-9 Ireland. He marries possibly/probably in Ireland to Mary Jane Mitchell born c 1848. Cannot find a UK marriage.

They appear in 1871 with 2 children.
1. Eliza Jane born jq 1867 Prescot mother's maiden name "Mitchell"
2. Mary born dq 1868 Prescot mother's maiden name "Mitchell"

Mary Jane Wright dies aged 23 in jq 1871 Prescot.

John Wright re-marries Margaret Hunter details below
1st January 1872 Parish Church, St Helen's Prescot.

John of full age, occupation Furnaceman, a widower abode St Helen's. His father shown as William Wright occupation Farmer.
Margaret Hunter aged 19, spinster, abode St Helen's, father shown as Robert Hunter occ plasterer.
John signed the register, Margaret signed with an X
Witnesses were Joseph Wright and Mary ****

Children below all born with mother's maiden name Hunter

1 William Alexander sq 1873
2 Joseph John dq 1875--Peter's father
3 Margaret jq 1878
4 Amelia sq 1880 (Emily on 1881 census)
5 Martha dq 1882
6 Emily Ann jq 1885

Cannot find a Robert Wright born c1878 who appears with family in 1891 census.

I too have failed to find a Lilly/Lily

Hello all, I have Robert Wright born
in 1890 and died in 1891.
John Wright his father born 1838 in Ireland and dies in Feb 1890, I have Margaret Wright nee Hunter also going on to have a child in 1893 called Florence with John Fenney but can find no record of a marriage to John Fenney.
Joseph John Wright born 1875 is my husbands grandfather, we believe but have no proof he left his family behind sometime before 1919 and moved away, re married and had another family

I have seen a baptism for Florence, born 10 July 1893 Widnes and baptised 10 September 1893 in Widnes, which states parents  John Fenney -  father and mother - Margaret Wright .
Re Joseph John Wright ( 1875) we have known nothing about him as he did not talk about his past other than he was born in Runcorn, parents John and Margaret, he had a sister called Margaret. We have searched for years for any info about him so  this year my husband has done a DNA test, which has now given us the answers re his family. still lots of unanswered questions, was this the same Joseph John Wright that married Margaret Gallagher and went on to have children, if so why did he leave them and move away and start a new family?

Many thanks this looks like the "wright"family  Suz i dont have Lillys birth date  but Peter born 1900 married Jane Jennion round about 1932 any more help would be very appreciated,once again many thanks   j jen   heather  and suz ;) ;)

I am not 100% certain we have the correct family

There is a marriage reg for Peter Wright and Jane Jennion 1932
It seems Jane died first quarter 1939 and Peter remarried by the end of 1939

There are several trees on A*****y giving various ages for Peter and various parents - do you know Peters exact date of birth
Does your cousin have any marriage certificate for Peter ? This could give his father's name

Suz
Thornhill, Cresswell, Sisson, Harriman, Cripps, Eyre, Walter, Marson, Battison, Holmes, Bailey, Hardman, Fairhurst Noon-mainly in Derbys/Notts-but also Northampton, Oxford, Leics, Lancs-England

Lorraine, are you able to answer a couple of questions as we appear to have 2 issues here.

You speak in your last post as knowing Joseph John Wright(if the correct one) left his wife and children , moved away, married and had further children. Are you able to share those details with us. Do you know when he died, was it in 1962?

What exact details have you got re Peter Wright(again is the son of Joseph) Do you have his marriage etc and when he died.

All helps us to try and narrow down our searches.

Thanks

John
