John Wright (c. 1567-1632) of Wrightsbridge was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He entered Grey's Inn in 1588. He was a bencher and his family was one of the oldest in the liberty of Havering-atte-Bower, of the tenement Wrightsbridge in Romford. He served as deputy steward of Havering from 1625 until his death in 1632, and deputy coroner in 1603/4. He was appointed Clerk of the House of Commons in November 1612 and he remained until his death in 1632.[1]

Research Notes

He's noted as dying in 1644 but according to his biography in the History of Parliament he d. in 1632. I would doubt he died in Dagenham, Essex, England, which was purchased by his nephew.

He would have been only 9 years old when his son, William, was born.
Wright-7544 and Wright-282 appear to represent the same person because: same name and dates, mother cannot be Greene as she and the father did not marry until well after this child was born.
