John Thomas Wright sub inspector B'ham police

Postby Sharon » Wed Sep 19, 2018 5:32 pm

Could anyone help me with information on my gt., gt., Grandfather John Thomas Wright b c1844?. He married Sarah Ann Price on Christmas day 1862 at St Stephen's Warwickshire. They had two sons, John Thomas and William. I believe he died c.1866. I can't find him on 1851 or 1861 census.
I know his father was John Wright from his marriage certificate, where his profession is listed as "sub-inspector Birmingham police." I know nothing else about him.
Any information would be very welcome. Thank you.
Sharon

WMpeelers website will provide contact details for the West Mids police archivist - she should be able to help you find out all sorts about his career, if they have the records :)

I can never remember the lady's name but she is very helpful and is on facebook too.
