     "Richard Wright, b. c. 1598 Stepney, Middlesex, England, to Lynn, Mass., with the Winthrop Fleet 1630 bringing his mother Margaret and at least three daughters. He was of Boston and Braintree both before coming to Seekonk, Plymouth Colony, in 1643 and with his three sons-in-law all settled beside each other in the new Plantation which they helped to found and which later became Rehoboth. Wife unknown, b. and d. in England; order of children uncertain."

Medfield, Mass. He was in the first division of land 1643 at Seekonk (later Rehoboth), Mass., and was one of the founders as well as his father-in-law Richard Wright. He is a French Huguenot."
     "Genealogy of the Gordon-Macy, Huddleston-Curtis, and Allied Families" by Jessie Gordon Flack and Maybelle Gordon Carman
     The notes referred to by the authors - "Bowen, Richard LeBaren, 'Early Rehoboth', four volumes, printed privately at Rehoboth, 1945, III, 113, 'Richard Wright came from England in the first fleet with Gov. John Winthrop as servant to Col. John Humfrey (or Humphreys) bringing with him three daughters and perhaps other children and probably his mother, Margaret. His wife would appear to have been deceased for his daughters in depositions made seventeen years later said that they came with 'their father' with no mention of their mother...For a time Richard Wright and his family remained on the farm at Saugus, later we find him at Boston, then at Braintree and next at Seekonk as one of the organizers of the new township.'
     "Richard Wright of Braintree, Alexander Winchester (who had been servant to Mr. Henry Vane), William Cheeseborough and Walter Palmer were the real founders of Seekonk and of these Richard Wright was the dominant man."
     "ibid., 119, 1643 - In the first division of home lots at Seekonk, Richard Wright is No. 8 with 834 pounds, the righest man in town; he was to have a twelve acre lot at the northwest end of the ring of the town. His three sons-in-law each had 8 acre lots. Robert Sharpe's and Richard Wright's on the east, William Sabin's on the west and James Clarke's adjoining William Sabin's."
     (Elinor Wright married James Clark; Abigail Wright married Robert Sharpe)
     "Rehoboth Town Meeting Records, Book I, p. 29 - The same book gives in all ten various grants or acreage in divisions of land at Rehoboth besided 'that Richard Wright built a cornmill and that no other be built in the country..."
     "Ibid., III, 121 - Richard Wright was the first 'committee' later caled deputy to be elected to represent Seekonk or Rehoboth, as it was newly named, to the Court at Plymouth....He was admitted a freeman on Oct. 28, 1645."
     "Ibid., 130 - William Sabin according to various references ran the mill for his father-in-law but eventually bought the mill from Richard Wright. The signatures of Richard Wright and William Sabin are found affixed to the Rehoboth Compact in 1644. Thirty men signed the document and this is the only signature for many of them."

Andrew Hay 8th Earl of Erroll died on 8 October 1585 at Slains, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.1
     Andrew Hay 8th Earl of Erroll      per van de Pas: "Andrew Hay, 8th Earl of Erroll, was the son of George Hay, 7th Earl of Erroll, and Margaret Robertson.
     On 16 June 1552 he was contracted to marry his cousin, Lady Jean Hay, daughter of William Hay, 6th Earl of Erroll, and Lady Helen Stewart. By her had three sons, the eldest and youngest both deaf and dumb but the other very able. After her death, he married Lady Agnes Sinclair, daughter of the ferocious George Sinclair, 4th Earl of Caithness, and Lady Elizabeth Graham, and had more children.
     He started giving his second wife blank charters, and the Hays feared he might disinherit his first wife's sons. As a result his own brothers and the Hays of Megginch surprised Slains Castle with scaling ladders by night, captured the Earl and held him prisoner in the dungeon-tower for a month.
     King James VI intervened personally, temporarily entrusting the whole Erroll fief to Alexander Hay, Lord Clerk Register. A special Act of Parliament was passed fixing the succession on the Earl's second son, Francis Hay, and the unfortunate Master of Erroll was placed in the custody of the Captain of Edinburgh Castle in 1584, being 'cognosced' insane a dozen years later.
     Andrew Hay, 8th Earl of Erroll, died 8 October 1585 at Slains. His second wife, the cause of the family upheaval, was still attractive as a widow and, in 1587, had to be rescued by the Earl of Atholl from 'Mad Colin' Campbell of Glenlyon, who wounded her men and burnt her house at night, carrying her off 'to use her according to his filthy lust and inclination'. However, about 1588, she married Alexander Gordon, of Stradoun."1
