I am Aubrey descanted

There is still more work to be done.

Charles Hoppin asserted that 1729/30 John Wright of Stafford County was a son of 1713 Francis Wright of Westmoreland County and the evidence for this conclusion seems complete and convincing. Charles Hoppin then went on to assert that 1792 John Wright of Fauquier County was a son of 1729/30 John Wright of Stafford County, Virginia. However, Hoppin’s evidence for this was substantially based on his identification of Dorothy Aubrey as the wife of 1729/30 John Wright of Stafford County, but that was incorrect.

This was two different Dorothy Aubreys

As set forth in prior posts citing an Essex County deed, Dorothy Aubrey was the wife of John Billups. Hoppin’s remaining evidence for the identification of 1792 John Wright of Fauquier County as the son of 1729/30 John Wright of Stafford County is very slim.

I am not sure I can help but Dorothy Aubrey father is said to have been Thomas Aubrey brother of my Henry Aubrey and John Aubrey
Thomas Awbrey had dau name Dorothy who at father death became ward of Henry and later John Awbrey. Dorothy lived with Her Uncle John Awbrey and later married John Wright abt 1705 Westmoreland County, Virginia.



" CAVALIERS AND PIONEERS" Vol 1 -Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants (1623-1666) by Nell Marion Nugent

Thomas Awbery is listed on page 298 as being transported with two other persons by Charles Edwards who was granted 150 acres Lower Norfolk Co. VA Apr 27,1686

No one knows what happen to him

Dorothy Aubrey was the wife of John Billups. This Richard Aubrey daughter. And did not marry John Wright the place and age for Dorothy will not work.
