About the study

Currently focusing on the WELLARD name in Kent and Australia.

The name appears to be concentrated throughout Kent, England. I'm in the process of extracting the Parish births/baptisms, marriages/banns and burials for Kent.


The Australian WELLARD's are from these males:

William WELLARD (1779-1857) sent to Australia 1827 convicted of stealing a horse and sentenced to transportation for life.

  • Lewis WELLARD (1804-unknown) son of the above William. Convicted in 1830 for stealing and sentenced to transportation for 14 years. Had 5 children.
  • William WELLARD (1817-1896) son of the above William. Joined his father in Australia in 1832, along with his mother, brother and sister, under the Convict¬†Family scheme. Had 11 children.

John Appleton WELLARD (1828-1898) 1st cousin once removed of William. John had 12 children.

Robert Berfield WELLARD (1833-1911) brother of John. Had 9 children.

The above are all in New South Wales, Australia.

Another branch 2nd cousin twice removed of William.

John WELLARD (1825-1885) emigrated to Western Australia. Had 4 children but only 1 son.

  • John Pierce/Pearce Owen WELLARD (1856-1909) Had 7 children, 6 sons.

Some of his children and grandchildren moved to South Australia and Victoria.

I will answer any queries to the best of my ability.
