WRIGHT FAMILY IN CANADA
WHOOPS- I added all my information under the Lundy Family Forest as my Wright Family married back into my Lundy family - it all becomes very complicated......my Wright family - James Wright and Maria Garrard- arrived in Canada in 1832 from Engalnd and settled in Guelph. They were very instrumental in developing the road between Guelph and Brock and served politically in that area for years. My great grandmother Josephine Lundy married Daniel Smith Wright and had nine children. They homesteaded in the late 1800's in Manitoba and after Daniel's death Josephine and her children moved back to Newmarket. My grandmother married her first cousin - a Lundy - so the circle started again......
A number of the Wright family members also homesteaded in Alberta and some moved into the Northern states as well.
