The Family Bible of James and Clara Wright, 1870, Wereham, Norfolk

Large but tatty family Bible of the Blacksmith James Wright (1850 – 1920) and Clara Pollard (b. 1867) who married in 1896. The Bible lists no offspring, but does list three other members of the Wright family, namely William, born c. 1802, Mary born c. 1832, and Robert who died in 1901.

It is interesting to note that the handwriting in the Bible perfectly matches the handwriting used to complete the 1911 Census
