Anne Wright of Wirksworth

Anne was Ari’s 7x great-grandmother. She was born in Wirksworth, Derbyshire, in about 1752. (There is a possible baptism in 1754, of Ann, daughter of Job Wright of Bolehill, and this family seem to have left wills, so plenty to investigate.)

On 29 December 1774, Anne married John Frost at St Mary’s in Wirksworth.

Anne and John had three daughters: Jane in 1774, Mary in 1776, and Hannah in 1779.

Anne died in August 1815 at the age of 63, and was buried on the 20th of that month at Wirksworth.
