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.
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.
Some of his children and grandchildren moved to South Australia and Victoria.
I will answer any queries to the best of my ability.
