If you haven't already found it you should try Jill Carter Knuth's web page at:
It has a lot of background information of which may interest other people
with early Quaker and/or Chester, England ancestry as well.
The information I have on the DICKS family is that Peter DICKS (or DIX),
born in Chester, Cheshire Co., England, who married Esther MADDOCK was the
son of James and Phyllis DICKS. I have much information on some lines of
DICKS descendents (especially descendants of oldest daughter Hannah DICKS,
who married Jonathan THATCHER, but none on others, such as children of
Elizabeth DICKS and Richard TRANTOR, or children of Sarah DICKS and Joseph
PYLE. I had Henry MADDOCK, who married Elizabeth KENNERLY, down as another
son of Thomas MADDOCK and Elizabeth SIMCOCK, but according to Jill Carter
Knuth, he was the son of another Henry MADDOCK.
As for Wrightsborough, it's no longer in existence, the town having died by
about 1920, but the site (which still has a Methodist church built in 1810
where the Quaker meeting house originally stood) is near Thomson, Georgia,
in McDuffie Co. The Wrightsboro Restoration Foundation looks after the site,
and you can get information in the tourist office in Thomson as well.
