Possible Combination of Two Samuels

DNA testing has established that Deacon Samuel Wright was of the Kelvedon Hatch line[5] and the best candidate for his identity appears to be John and Martha (Castell) Wright's son Samuel, who was baptized Jun 1606[5]. It is possible, however, that Deacon Samuel Wright was a different Samuel Wright within the same line, parentage unknown.
