Biography*George Savage died testate in 1791, leaving his sister, Ann Bunting, 40 acres adjacent to Henry Wright's plantation (Wills 1788 - 1794, p. 450). This tract is shown by the survey of 1793, as Henry Wright's "in right of his wife". Ann and George were two of the children of William Savage, who died testate in 1781 (Wills 1780 - 1784, p. 119). On 25 July 1800" Henry Right and wife Nancy sold to William Right, "brother of said Henry', the land he got from his father, for 25 pounds (Deeds 1800 - 1804, p. 82). The 1800 Federal Census gives Henry Wright of Henry as 26 to 45 years of age. and they had a son and two daughters under 10 years. His wife was the same age. Two older females in their household were likely Henry's wife's by her first marriage. In 1810, Henry Wright was again 26 to 45 years old. A male in his household was under 10 years. This Henry Wright was apparently deceased by 1820, for his widow, Ann Wright, was head of a household, which included two males, one 16 to 26 and another at 26 to 45 years, and a female 16 to 26 years of age. 
Birth*circa 1770Henry was born circa 1770 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Marriage*circa 1792He married Ann 'Nancy' (of Wm H I) Savage, daughter of William Hope (of Griffin II) Savage I and Elizabeth Rogers (Rogers?), circa 1792 at Accomack Co, VA.2 
Census head*1800Henry was listed as a head of household in the census of in 1800 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA. He was shown as Henry Wright (Henry), age 26-45.

Death*before 1820Henry died before 1820. He was evidently deceased by 1820 when his widow, Ann Wright, was head of a household which included 2 males, one 16-26 years old and another 26-45 years old, and a female 16-26 years old..
