  • Notes 
    • An Edmund Wright and his wife Ellen baptise a son Edward in 1545. Father of Randall??

      ...He was the son of Randall Wright, mercer, of Twerlingate Nantwich and Margaret (Edwards), also of Nantwich. Ormerod (fn. 39) states that Sir Edmund was descended from a collateral line of Wright of Offerton and Mottram, formerly of Nantwich, to whom arms were disallowed in the heraldic visitation of 1663-4, and, in a footnote, writes:- "This Sir Edmund used [and no doubt improperly used] the arms of Bulkeley . . . and the name of Thomas Wright alias Bickley, with whom the pedigree (fn. 40) begins, is sometimes written Bulkeley in the pedigrees, but corruptly so", since, as Ormerod explains, his name appears as Thomas de Bickley alias Wright, executor of the will of David Bickley.

      May have brother Laurence and Henry as baptising at the same time.

      From T.A.Cowards " Cheshire"

      " Wich-Malbank is the old name for Nantwich, for a quater of the town was granted in 1133 by William de Malbank or Malbanc to the abbot of Combermere................The last baron of Wich-Malbanc, Lord Audley led the tax ridden Cornishmen as far as Blackheath to protast by force in 1497............In consequence his family lost the estate and later the Cholmondeleys became Barons of Nantwich"

      Could it be Richard. A Richard Wright mentioned in the will of Richard Barnes, 1597.??

      Churche's Mansion is a timber-framed, black-and-white Elizabethan mansion house at the eastern end of Hospital Street in Nantwich, Cheshire, England (grid reference SJ656521). The Grade I listed building dates from 1577, and is one of the very few to have survived the Great Fire of Nantwich in 1583.
      Built for Richard Churche, a wealthy Nantwich merchant, and his wife, it remained in their family until the 20th century.
      Churche's Mansion was built for Richard Churche and his wife Margerye by Thomas Clease in 1577.[3] A panel under a window to the right of the main entrance bears the inscription:

      Rychard Churche, and Margerye Churche, his wyfe mai iiii
      Thomas Clease made this worke, anno dni, M,ccccc,lxxvii,
      in the xviiii yere of the reane of our noble queene elesabeth[3]

      The only other remaining work signed by craftsman Thomas Clease (also Cleese) is the Queen's Aid House on Nantwich High Street, known for its inscription thanking Elizabeth I for her aid in the town's rebuilding after the Great Fire.[2]

      The land in "Hospitull Strete" on which the mansion was built had been granted to John and Nicolas Churchehouse of Grayste (Gresty) in 1474/5 by John Marchomley and his son John, Richard and William Cholmondeley, and John Bromley.[4] By the late 16th century, the Churche family (known variously as Church, Chirche, Kyrke and Churchehouse) was a prominent one in Nantwich. Richard Churche was a wealthy local merchant who, at his death in 1592, owned "one wiche-house of six leads in Wich Malbank", as well as considerable land holdings both locally and in Shropshire and Stafford. His wife, Margerye or Margaret Churche, daughter of Roger Wright, came from another significant Nantwich family; she survived her husband, living until 1599.[4]
      Salamander carving, traditional protection against fire Standing on the edge of the old town, the recently completed Churche's Mansion survived the fire of 1583 which destroyed almost all of Nantwich east of the River Weaver.[5] The only other buildings known to have survived were Sweetbriar Hall, also on Hospital Street, and the parish church.[6] Richard Churche willed "the house ... wherein I now dwell on the Ospell Street" to his second son, Rondull, Randol or Randle Church(e).[4] The house is mentioned among the principal houses of the town in a 1622/3 account by William Webb, who describes the mansion as "a fair timber-house of Mr. Randol Church, a gentleman of singular integrity."[7] Randle Church survived until 1648, outliving his son and grandson, and Churche's Mansion then passed to the Shropshire branch of the family, descended from Richard Churche's eldest son, William.[4] The Churche family inhabited the house until at least 1691, when a rate book records Saboth Church as the resident and gives the rates as 2 shillings 8˝ pence.[4]

      "Alice Bressey. She married Henry(?) or Roger Wright. (Additional notes for Henry(?) or Roger Wright(2)) The Wrights of Nantwich, Cheshire, were a large family of town merchants who married into families of the Cheshire landed gentry and were of armorial rank. Alice is mentioned in the wills of her uncle, James Bressey , in 1561, and of her brother, Thomas Bressey, in 1591, at which latter date she was a widow. She was very probably the Alice Wright, widow, "of the porche" (the name of one of the town mansions of Nantwich), who was buried 29 May 1609"
