    Map of Tyendinaga Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario, showing the farm of Charles Wright in 1878.

    The 1851 Agricultural Census shows Charles "Write" at Con. 5 Lot 39 and George Sexsmith at the same location. The 1878 Meacham Atlas shows Charles Wright still at the same location, and surrounding farms owned by sons of George Sexsmith. By censuses, it appears that George Wright and Wife Hannah VV-Wright lived here and farmed the property until shortly before their deaths.

      [See also the 1878 Meacham Atlas where Charles Wright still occupies Con. 5 Lot 39. The personal census for 1851 seems to be missing for this area, i.e. searches for nearby families unsuccessful. The family does, however, appear on the 1861 and 1871.]
