MMB has made a diary note against March 28 in John Pickett's daybooks. - James Wright-first accident took place 1891 at Sir John Shelley sawmills Shobrooke Park.

By 1891 seems to have moved to Crediton, North Street, married and at census time his mother is living with them. This was within one week of his accident, and no doubt she was assisting with his care.

At 1901 he is a widower living in Yorkshire with his wife's family.13
