I am trying to find the family of Thomas & Jane Welland, they had one son that I am aware of Josias James born 1852, would like to see if there were any other siblings. They were from Plymouth Devon Thomas was born about 1826 and married Jane Blake in 1851. I find it hard to get full access from Australia.

Hi again

here they are in 1871

Parish of St Andrew, Plymouth
17 Morley Street

Thomas Welland-head-46-mason-born Jump
Josiah J-son-18-Plymouth
Eliza J-daug-16- ""
Louisa K-daug-7 ""
Susan Blake-mother-in-law-79-Yealen
not found the eldest son William T who would be 23 by 1871 so probobly married, trouble is not sure who he belongs to as he was born 3 years before Thomas and Jane Married so maybe he is her son, not sure about him in 1851 either, there is a Willam Blake aged 3 who is a visitor born Wembury were Jane came from.

back to the 1851 found Thomas with his brother

East Stonehouse, Devon
William Welland-head-35-sawyer
THOMAS WELLAND-brother-25-Mason
all born East Stonehouse

and Jane's mother in 1851 in Plymouth

Susan Blake-lodger-wid-62-nurse-Revelstoke
head of house William and Mary Sander.
don't know if you have this

bapt of Jane Blake
27-2-1825 Wembury, Devon
parents Josias and Susanna Blake.
will keep looking
