Mary Eliza Wright married Robert Ball Hughes near London in 1828 and the newlyweds emigrated to the United States shortly thereafter. Eliza was a source of inspiration for her husband, who was an accomplished sculptor and painter. He was commissioned to sculpt busts of various members of Britain's nobility, most notably King George IV, and America's leaders, including a statue of Alexander Hamilton that was placed atop the Merchants' Exchange Building in New York. Robert received several awards from the Royal Academy and was elected to the National Academy as an Honorary Academician in 1830.
