Wright Family Album

Photos and memories of the family of

G W Wright (1873-1956) and A M Wright (née Binns 1887-1974)

George William and Anna May Wright (known as May) were Doris' parents. They met in Kenya where George was a missionary, and had eight children. George became the bishop of Sierra Leone, eventually dividing the diocese into three and becoming the first bishop of one of the parts, the new diocese of North Africa, just before World War 2. The war ended his work there, and he and May moved to Templecombe in Somerset, before retiring and moving into a flat in John and Doris' home in Tunbridge Wells.
The text in this album is May's account of George's life, with additional memories from Doris, Basil and David typed up by Doris in 2006.
