Wright and Oakley

From Jemima Armistead

My husband's g,g grandfather Francis Wright was born
in Pentlow in 1858 to a Alfred Wright and Emma Oakley. They married
in 1855 and had 4 children James, Mary, Francis and William. Emma
Oakley was buried 30 June 1864 , 3 days after her oldest's child
James. Alfred, I believed also died prior to the 1971 census as three
surviving children are living at the Sudbury Work House.

Alfred's 1st wife was Eliza Plumb, they had 2 children George and
Ann. George survived childhood and lived with his mother's father Daniel

The only thing I know about Emma Oakley was born about
1834/5 in Cavendish Suffolk, according to the 1861 census
