Anne Wright was born about 1660 in Chickacone, Northumberland Co., VA. Anne Wright, daughter of Captain Richard Wright, inherited the estate upon the Potomac adjoining the present Mount Vernon: Anne Wright's inheritance from her father: "I give and bequeath unto my daughter Anne Wright all that my said land in the 'ffreshes' of the Patomack River." And she received on September 6, 1665, from her uncle and guardian, Colonel Nicholas Spencer, "in consideration of the natural love and affection which I have towards Anne Wright my niece, the daughter of Richard Wright within mentioned deceased" one-half of the eleven hundred acres at Mount Vernon on the Potomac which he had patented with her father, September 25, 1661, the other half of which she had inherited. This patent was recorded by Colonel Spencer in Westmoreland County on the day of his gift. Anne Wright married George Nicholas Hacke, born in Accomac County, Virginia, son of Dr. George and Anna (Herman) [correction--Verlet] Hacke. Dr. Hacke was born at Cologne, Germany, in 1623, and appeared in Virginia in 1653; his wife was born at Amsterdam, Holland, sister [incorrect--sister-in-law] to the noted Augustine Herman, founder and lord of the great manor of Bohemia extending from Chesapeake Bay (in Cecil County, Maryland) across Delaware to the Delaware River.) (An account of Dr. Hacke appears at page 256 of Volume V of the 'Virginia Magazine of History and Biography'.) Anne (Wright) Hacke did not long retain her eleven hundred acres at Mount Vernon, as she removed to the long, low promontory, Accomac County, between Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
