Trying to find Welch

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Welch's from Taunton area early 1800's -------------------------------------------------- I have a little information about at least four earlier generations of the Welch family between about 1780 and 1850/60 who are named in a family document of which I have a copy. Unfortunately I do not yet know the exact link to the modern Welch descendants who are in my tree, so I am looking for information about any members of the Welch family originating in Taunton Somerset and the surrounding villages in the early 19th Century. A the time they were influential in Taunton as no less than nine of them became doctors/surgeons, some in London and some in Taunton At least one, and probably several, had a connection with Guy'sHospital.
