I havent been able to find much about her other than her birthdate,  i do know that she had a daughter called Lavinia Blanche Wright (she went by the name Blanche)   Lavinia later went on to marry George Ernest Daubney, and had two sons, called Dennis and Maurice

In the 1911 census (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X7T3-82H) Blanche is shown living with her uncle John Joseph Wright and his family. Also in the household is her grandmother Charlotte Wright.

That makes it seem very likely that this is Lillia Wright in the 1891 census, with her brother John J. Wright and her mother Charlotte, and also her father William:

Household Role Sex Age Birthplace

William Wright Head Male 40 Norfolk, England

Charlotte Wright Wife Female 38 Co Durham

John J Wright Son Male 16 Co Durham

Lillia Wright Daughter Female 6 Co Durham

I was just about to paste almost exactly the same answer as you but it included Charlotte's maiden name of White.

Funnily enough I had also just worked out that Charlotte's maiden name was White and was looking for a marriage record to confirm it. William Wright and Charlotte White married in 1873 in County Durham - source: "England and Wales Marriage Registration Index, 1837-2005," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2DG3-R4Q : 13 December 2014), William Wright, 1873; from "England & Wales Marriages, 1837-2005," database, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : 2012); citing 1873, quarter 4, vol. 10A, p. 448, Auckland, Durham, England, General Register Office, Southport, England.

This could be Lillia's birth
