Christina was born in Maryland about 1703-4, the daughter of Hester Enloes and William Wright. In 1707 she was mentioned in the will of her grand father Hendrick Enloes in 1707 (FS transcript has 1702, but ancestry film appears to be original and give 1707). She married James Ditto at some point before 1723 when she was mentioned in her father's will as Christina Ditto. She was probably married as early as 1718 when Abraham Ditto, who she referred to as her son in a 1743 conveyance, was baptized. James Ditto died by 1732 and Christina remarried to Thomas Gadd on 22 January 1732/3. They were the parents of Margaret Gadd born on 28 March 1734. On 25 March 1743 she conveyed livestock, two feather beds and furniture to "my loving son Abraham Ditto".

Wright-28293 and Wright-5142 appear to represent the same person because: I would like to merge the two Christina (Wright) Dittos. I believe 1702-3 to be the correct birth date based on the write up on Hester Enloes found here: discussing the evidence surrounding Christina's birth and parentage (father's will, grandfather's will, her own convenience to her son, ect). This does not conflict with Christina being the mother of Abraham as discussed in the write up as she could have married at the age of 15-16 as was not uncommon at that time.
