Name Meaning

English and Scottish: occupational name for a craftsman or maker of machinery, mostly in wood, of any of a wide range of kinds, from Middle English and Older Scots wriht, wright, wricht, writh, write (Old English wyrhta, wryhta) ‘craftsman’, especially ‘carpenter, joiner’. The term is found in various combinations (for example, Cartwright and Wainwright ), but when used in isolation it often referred to a builder of windmills or watermills. This surname is also very common among African Americans.
