DNA testing has established that Deacon Samuel Wright was of the Kelvedon Hatch line and the best candidate for his identity appears to be John and Martha (Castell) Wright's son Samuel, who was baptized Jun 1606. It is possible, however, that Deacon Samuel Wright was a different Samuel Wright within the same line, parentage unknown.
