Searching for the parents of 4 brothers who left Langton, Durham @ 1887 and sailed to Hawaii and New Zealand. Parents are Thomas Wright and Jane Wilson. Sons are 1-William Wilson Wright - b. 26 Jan 1846 in Durham. 2- Henry Wright b. 23 Mar 1852 in Durham (who was married to a Elizabeth Ann Wright b.1856 d. 1883) 3- Tom Wright and George Wright.
Sons 1 & 2 settled in Hawaii, Sons 3 & 4 went on to New Zealand.
Henry and Elizabeth had 5 children before she died in childbirth. 1. Thomas b. abt 1874 in Durham d. 9 Mar 1883 also in Durham. 2. Fred Wright b. 1877 in Durham d. 1916 in Hawaii. 3. George Henry Wright b. 6 mar 1880 Durham d. 18 Jan 1936 Hawaii. 4. John Wright b. 5 Apr 1882 Durham, d. 5 Oct. 1957 Hawaii. 5. Elizabeth Annie Wright b. 8 Mar. 1883 d. 7 Apr. 1943 Hawaii.
I am trying to find their family back in England as well as the brothers who moved on to New Zealand.
Henry was a blacksmith in England and we have a rusty horseshoe that we were told belonged to one of the Kings Mounts.
Anyone who knows of this family, Please contact Me.
Much Aloha,
Noelani W. Phillips
