My grandmother (who is still living) has given me the following information:

 

Her mother was Marion Wright, and father was Eric Wright. Her grandmother on her mother's side was Alice Unsworth, and grandfather was James Esq. Wright. From what I can gather, Marion was born in 1918 in Lancashire

 

I'd like more information around Marion and Eric (and their ancestors) to help contribute to my family tree.

Darren,

If you have more information such as the year of Eric Wright's birth, marriage and or death, name of his spouse, location of his birth, marriage and death (country, county and or city), it could be useful in answering your question. Same info for Alice Unsworth and also for James Esq. Wright if you have it would help.

I assumed that Eric Wright married between 1900 and 1918 in Lancashire and that he was likely born in England. Your additional input can help solve the puzzles.
