Daniel WRIGHT (c1725-?)

and Mary HUSSELL (1724-?)


Daniel Wright and Mary Hussell were my 6x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by banns on 9 December 1749 at the parish church of St. Mary and St. Peter in Wilmington, Sussex.  They were both of Wilmington.

Daniel Wrightís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

Mary Hussell was baptised on 19 October 1724 at St. Mary's in Hailsham, Sussex.  She was the daughter of John Hussell and Mary Hollybone.  (Many thanks to Christine Jackson for finding Mary's baptism.)


Daniel Wright and Mary Hussell had 5 known children:

  1. Elizabeth Wright was baptised on 22 July 1750 in Wilmington.

  2. Mary Wright was baptised on 4 February 1753 in Wilmington.

  3. Alexander Wright was baptised on 10 November 1755 in Wilmington.

  4. Ann Wright, my 5x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 14 May 1758 in Wilmington.  She married Walter Sawyers in 1781.  (They have their own page.)

  5. Robert Wright was baptised on 23 October 1761 in Wilmington and buried there on 8 December 1764.


I have checked the East Sussex Baptism Index for Daniel Wright whom I would guess were born before 1730, but there are no likely baptisms for him.  The IGI has a Dan Wright baptised on 14 January 1727 in Tonbridge, Kent the son of William Wright and Mary.  There were many other Danielís born/baptised 1720 +/-10 years, but the Kent one is the closest to Wilmington.

Thomas Wright married Elizabeth Dorridge on 21 October 1703 in Wilmington.  He also married Mary Pagden on 16 January 1707/9 in Jevington, at which time he was of Wilmington.  (Christine descends from Thomas and his second wife Mary.)


William Hussel and Mary Baker married on 25 April 1721 in Warbleton, Sussex.  At that time William was of Hailsham and Mary of Warbleton.

Robert Hassel and Susan Smith married on 20 February 1698/9 in Battle, Sussex.  Robert was then of Waldron and Susan of Westfield.

John Hussell and Mary Hollybone married on 12 October 1698 in Folkington.  They were both then of Hailsham.
