I looked into Roger Bowers statement below. The profile manager added the Wright maiden name at his option, but, they are not the same profile and have different sources.

* Mary Sparks (Wright)

According to The Sparks Quarterly:

"We may speculate that William and Mary had been married about 1670-73."

"In this 1701 deed, William Sparks was identified as "William Sparks, Senr."; as was his custom, he signed by mark as while his wife Mary signed as "M". The witnesses were Edward Goding and Thomas Hawkins."

"We have found no record of the death of Mary Sparks, widow of William. From his will and other records, we know that William and Mary Sparks were the parents of four sons and one daughter."

"We know from a number of sources that the wife of William Sparks had the given name Mary, but we have found no clue by which we can identify her maiden surname. She was living at the time that William Sparks made his will, and he provided for her in a way that was typical at the time." [1]

Mary Wright here appears to be confused with the wife of great-grandson William Sparks.
