    Gender  Male 
    Note  Changed name to Trotter - his wife's mother's family - when he inherited the Horton estate, from his wife's cousin John Trotter who died sp in 1856, (the fuller, and more accurate, story is in the text of the Royal Licence) by Royal Licence on 3rd December 1868 and then was granted an impartible quartering of Trotter and Brown but with a mark of distinction, the latter for his lifetime only. His children would have inherited these plus the Brown arms plus the Trotter arms from their mother. In Harleian Soc's Grantees of Arms 1687-1898.

    There is only one question on this heraldic inheritance. Did the Welbanks have any arms? If not, were the Trotter arms inheritable by Mary Welbank from her mother, Anne Trotter?

    In 1863 he was living at Wimbledon, Surrey and in 1870 he was at Penshurst, Kent, both according to Alumni Oxfordshireiensis for his sons.
