I am seeking information regarding my ggggrandparents, Daniel Wright and Janet Tytler Wright. Daniel and Janet were married 8 March 1812, in the High Church, Paisley, Scotland. They had eight children: John b.1812; William b.1814; Daniel b.1817; George b.1825; Robert b.1828; Elizabeth b.1830; Lillias b.1833; Thomas March b.1838. All were christened at Paisley Abbey. Robert came to Massachusetts in 1848, along with at least one of his siblings, and his wife, Agnes Allen. I would like to know if there are still Wrights in Paisley who may be descended from Daniel and Janet Tytler Wright. I know that Janet Tytler was christened at the Middle Church, Paisley, 18 Sept 1791. Her parents were William Tytler and Christian Longmore (-muir). I'm not sure which Daniel Wright was married to her. One Daniel Wright was also christened at the Middle Church, Paisley, 9 Sept 1790, a son of Duncan Wright and Agnes McVain. But there was another Daniel Wright who was christened 6 Jan 1788 at the Low Church, Paisley, a son of Malcom Wright and Mary McAllum. I would love to know which Daniel was my ancestor. Also, there is an old legend in our family that says that one of our Wright ancestors was born a MacIntosh or MacIntyre, but was adopted by the Wrights. I would appreciate any information anyone might be able to share. Thanks!
