Looking for descendants of Thomas WRIGHT born ~1879 in Newcastle upon Tyne,
England. An electrician, he emigrated to Brazil after 1901.
I have nothing in particular. But is occurs to me that, if this is the same
Thomas Wright who appears in the 1901 Census as age 22, born Newcastle,
living at Elswick and described as a "hand driller", then perhaps he was a
shipyard worker at Armstrong Whitworth's yard there. If so, he may have
been recruited to work in the Brazilian Naval Arsenal in Rio de Janeiro.
Just a speculation!
