Biography

William was born in about 1860 to Edmond Wright and Hannah Dale.

"Edmond Wright of London, Ont., married Hannah Dale in 1857 and six years later came to Pickering, where he established a general store at the west end. In 1875 he purchased and remodelled the property long known as Head's Hotel, transforming it into a store and residence. Here he continued business till 1886, when he sold to Dickie and Marquis. His daughter, Pheobe J. Wright, lives in Pickering and his son Albert lives in Imperial Valley, Cal. Two other daughters are Geraldine (Mrs. John Dickie) and Florence (Mrs. Miles Chapman). His eldest son, William V. Wright, graduated from Pickering College and Toronto University and, after marrying Isabella Carroll of Toronto, went to Japan as a missionary. After three years his health failed, and two years later he died in Denver, Col. His family still live in Pickering." [1]
