Elizabeth
I have just perused your site and would like to note that it seems the Rebecca Wright you have referenced as marrying James Connor is not the daughter of George Wright came c1844 as early pioneers with Anastatia Murphy and listed here. George’s daughter Rebecca has died prior to 1876, whilst the one you have referenced was born in London ! However, none of our family historians seem to be able to find out what happened to the right R Wright! George is my 3rd Great grandfather.
According to their marriage certificate, the person who married James Conner, whilst being a Rebecca Wright, had father John and mother Ann Simmonds. This information is repeated on her death certificate along with the children you have listed. Note in your list the child name Anne Simmonds Connor.
