bullet  General Notes:

It is likely that he emigrated before 1832 as his son Richard's son, John was born in Scotland in 1833,and Richard Welsh (grandson), living with them at the time of the 1841 & 1851 Census.

At the time of the 1841 Census he was living at 265 Old St, Creetown, Kirkmabreck, he was 60 years of age, a Labourer, recorded as born in England or Ireland. (His name was recorded as WELSHE at Scotlandspeople) Also living here were his wife Sarah, aged 60, also born in England or Ireland and male Richard (Grandson see below), aged 9, born in the County.
