Notes 3/16/2013 - possible additional sources: William Wright John Cooper

A Richard Wright married Hester Cooke. Some sources feel that he was a son of William and Priscilla. he seems to have been born about 1608 (based on age at death, see Cooke Silver Book p. 55-56. The marriage is improbable, if not impossible, as Priscilla would have been about 10 years old and did not marry until 1619.

This Richard Wright (if William and Priscilla had such a son) was NOT the spouse of Hester Cooke. (That Richard Wright was NOT the son of William and Priscilla)
