  • Name  Christopher (new) Welbank 
    Born  c. 1750 
    Gender  Male 
    Note  The problem here is to work out which of the many Christophers in England around that time was our Christopher who married Ann Knapp.

    I am pretty confident that this Christopher is the direct ancestor of all Welbanks in England today. His family with Ann Knapp are well documented as our branch.
