Born in Suffolk, he migrated to Nottingham at the time of the Civil War. He raised a troop of horse in Colonel Whalleys' Regiment, and a Company in General Hutchinson's. He was an Independent (a group now known as Congregationalists) and served as their minister in Nottingham and Mansfield when they were without one. He suffered imprisonment for his religious fervour and, for eight years at the Restoration for his attachment to the Parliament. Had 'a small estate at Skegby', Notts.
http://www.nottshistory.org.uk/Jacks1881/stapleford.htm His first son was Captain John Wright, who suffered eight years’ imprisonment in Newark Castle for his attachment to the Parliamentary cause, and it was very natural that he should never be able to understand why be was incarcerated. He afterwards acquired property in several parts of Nottinghamshire, and in a certain part of Suffolk, and at his death he was buried in St. Peter’s Church, in this town
