Abstract: Gregory Courtright Thompson collected material relating to the Courtright family, which originated in the Basque region of Spain, probably as the Cortes family, but moved to the Netherlands in the 16th century to avoid religious persecution. Over time the spelling of the name has included Courtright, Kortright, Cutrite, Cortright and Cartwright. The collection consists of reports, genealogical notes by Thompson, and family correspondence. The collection pertains to the Courtright family genealogy, especially the Rheuben Courtright branch. Included in the collection is correspondence between the American, Mexican and Canadian branches and an article tracing the Basque origins of the family. Some of the material was compiled by Hugh Kortright.
