In 11/1701, Abigail (Wright) Holbrook, age about 78 years, deposed that she was the daughter of Richard Wright.

In her will, written on 11/28/1702, her daughters Abigail Vorce, Abigail Tilden and her son-in-law, Stephen Tilden; grandsons William Sharp, Nathaniel and Jospeh Tilden and granddaughters, Elizabeth Tilden, Elizabeth Crafts and Martha Buckmaster were mentioned.

Her inventory was taken 10/31/1707 and presented 2/13/1707/8 by Stephen Tilden of Marshfield.
[Robert Vose and His Descendants, p. 15].

In "Col. Humphrey's Farm at Lynn," NEHGR, Vol 31, July, 1877, p. 308 : "Abigail Holbrook, aged 78 yeares or thereabouts, 'who dewlleth at Scituate but now being at roxbury' made oath November 4th, 1701 that she was about 8 yeares of age when she came first into this country 'with her father Richard Wright' &c &c. Her deposition is to the same purport as her sister Eleanor.

p. 307 of the same source : "Eleanor Clarke aged fourscore yeares or thereabouts testifyeth & saith that to her best remembrance she was about nine or ten yeares of age when she came first into this country, and that she came ouer with her father Richard Wright, who came over in the first fleet ye came hither he took up Lands ye were said to be granted to him said Colonel Humphryes, and built upon that part of ye said Land called by ye Indian name Saugus or Sangus according to ye best remembrance of this deponent near to a place called the great plaine or plaine farme which also this deponent remembers was reputed ye land of ye said Colonel Humphryes, and his cattle used to feed & range thereon: & further this deponent testifyeth that some yeares after ye said Col. Humphryes came over into New England, & after his arrival this deponent lived with ye said Col. Humphryes upon ye farm aforesd called Saugus or Sangus..."

Abigail Wright was married three times.

Her surname on this memorial should be Holbrook, since it was her last surname when she died.

She married first to Robert SHARP, then Thomas CLAPP ca 1656, then to William HOLBROOK. aft 1679
