    1. From: Emory, Mary Bourke. Colonial Families and Their Descendants. Press of the Sun Printing Office. Baltimore. 1900.

    Mr. Wm. Darby Wright, fourth son of Col. Thomas Wright, now a resident of Waverly, near Baltimore, was named for his mother's brother, Wm. Lux, and her father, Darby Lux. Since 1882 Mr. Wm. Darby Wright has faithfully discharged his duties as justice of the peace at the pretty little town of "Waverly," and commands the respect and confidence of everyone with whom he is associated. Lord Coke says of this office that "the whold world hath not the like, if it be duly executed."

    Mr. William D. Wright married Miss Lucy Hopper, daughter of Judge P. B. Hopper, who was an impartial judge and a faithful member of the Methodist Protestant Church of Centreville, and grandfather of P. B. Hopper III., Mrs. William Thompson, of Centreville, and Mrs. McFeely, of Chestertown. Mr. Wright has filled with "dignity, honor and ability" the position he has occupied for years, is very popular, and, although, from necessity, separated from them, loves his Eastern Shore friends and his old home, the "Church Farm," where his young days were so happily spent.

    "And we'll take a cup of kindness yet For 'Auld Lang Syne.'"
