Partner of Ann Rathbone (convict life) and had Ellen, Isabella b 1853, Joseph b 1855, Elizabeth b 1857 and maybe Mary Ann b 1846 (my g grandmother)no record of marriage. Permission to marry dated 5 April 1846 - Launceston

Had a number of children with Ann RATHBONE including:
Isabella WRIGHT (11-Nov-1853) - Launceston
Joseph WRIGHT (17-Jun-1855) - Launceston
Elizabeth WRIGHT (15-Dec-1857) - Launceston
It is also likely that he was the father of another child of Ann RATHBONE’s namely:
Sarah Ann WRIGHT (25-May-1846) although father name is not shown on birth entry only RATHBONE. However, George WRIGHT and Ann RATHBONE had permission to marry issued on 31-Mar-1846 although no entry can be found of the marriage actually occurring.
