Walter was born about 1861. He passed away in 1925.
Walter Wright migrated from England to New Zealand.
He was a merchant sailor from London who escaped his ship in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. Due to this he was likely somewhat secretive about date of birth etc. and his age on different documents such as marriage and death vary by a number of years, plus he unfortunately has a common name and comes from a big population center. Buried at Rangatira Cemetery, Hunterville, New Zealand.
His parents were George Wright and Jane Wright nee Edwards and he had a sister (possibly half) Louisa. His father was a coach builder (horse and cart) and/or wheelwright.
