John Wright

I am looking for birth records of John Wright, son of James, apparently born in Barrow in Furness about 1885. So far I have been unable to find anything, or any census for Barrow with James/John. Does anyone have any bright ideas as to what else I can try. I have the marriage certificate for John and that is where I have obtained his father's name.
Any help would be appreciated.

Found three but so far can't say who the parents are:

Births Mar 1884
WRIGHT John Barrow F. 8e 844

Births Jun 1885
Wright John Barrow F. 8e 826

Births Sep 1885
Wright John Barrow F. 8e 836


Wright is a very common name. Can you post the marriage details, when where and who to. What was his father's occupation and was he deceased? This may enable us to work back from a known point.

Hi Dave
John Wright, born about 1885/6 in Barrow in Furness (according to 1911 census). Married Beatrice Jones at St Mark's, BinF 22 December 1906 - Father James listed as labourer. 1911 Census shows John and family living at 1 Keith St BinF and that is where it says he was born in BinF. According to marriage certificate both John and James were residing in Keith Street, but there is no actual record of them on the electoral roll which I was able to check earlier this year.
