Wright

William Wright was acting for Earl Waldegrave in the late 1730’s, probably as a form of estate manager. No record for he has yet been found in the 18th century churchwarden accounts for this family but ther are frequent refencs to him ann other people, possibly his sons, in the  poor law records paying for an estate  in the Middlesex tithing.
Sometimes the estate is specified was ‘Sperrings’  which could mean one of the farms near Sperrings Lane which leads to Eakers Hill rather than Sperrings Green Farm. Another clue is that his estate included Everards so he could have been based in the modern Everards Farm or one of the several properties on Nedge Lane that have be abandoned.  White Pitts and Whitemead  are sometimes mentioned which may have been the names of the abandoned farms.
