I am researching my husband's ancestors and need some help. His grandmother was Edith Emma Hinckley, nee Wright. She was the daughter of George Frederic Wright, builder, who at one time resided at 16, Deans Yard, Westminster. George's older brother was Thomas James Wright (born 1851 in Cowes, IOW) who later became the Clerk of Works at Westminster Abbey. There is a memorial stone to Thomas in the cloisters at the abbey. He died in 1928 after fifty-five years service at there.

I wonder if the reason that the family, Thomas senior (b Friskney, Lincolnshire in 1822, & his two sons (Thomas James & George Frederic) mentioned above came to London from the IOW was perhaps that Thomas senior had worked on the construction of Whippingham Church, the little church where Queen Victoria & her family worshipped when at Osborne House. It's just a thought but I cannot find anything to back up this hunch.

I have census entries for 1851,1861 & 1891 but cannot find others. Any further information whatsoever on these three men would be much appreciated. Thank you.
