Weldon Connections
« on: Monday 25 November 19 14:38 GMT (UK) »
Jack Roger Alexander Kinsam Weldon
b abt 1905. Some researchers have the town of Young, New South Wales listed as place of birth.
( It is said he had two families one in NSW and one in Qld.) The Qld family I am aware of.
d 30/10/1986  reg#1986/57837
Father listed as James Weldon
Mother listed as Jean Bell
 no image available to download from the QLDBDM site and would need to order a paper copy.
( alternative date 3 Nov 1986- taken from the find a grave site)

Have searched for other children of the couple but no luck there either.

Also tried Campbell as opposed to bell and dropped the p.

Looked at the NSWBDM as well as the QldBDM records.

I also wonder if the man in question may have connections with another Weldon family I have been looking at with ties in India.

Alexander Weldon b 1807, Dublin, Ireland and d 1842 Kabul,Afghanistan
married
Ann Welsh b 1800 d 1842
issue:
1.Mary Ann Weldon b 1828 Bengal, India d 1828 Bengal India

2.Henry Alexander Weldon b 28 Oct 1828, Ghazeepore, India d 30 May 1869, Taabinga, Kingaroy, Queensland, Australia

3.Mary Ann Weldon b 7 Feb 1831, Cawnpore, East Indies

4.William Weldon b 22 Aug 1832, Cawnpore, India d 1890, Glenfern Hotel, Kilkoy, Queensland, Australia

5.Rosemond Weldon b 1835 Bengal Parish Fort William, India d 22 May 1899 Military Cemetery of Fort William Bengal in the Archdeaconary Diocese of Calcutta

Many Thanks for any forthcoming suggestions on moving forward with my enquiry

The date differences will most likely be that one is death date and the other burial date, as it does say ‘laid to rest 3 Nov’:

1986 57837 Jack Roger Alexander Weldon parents James Weldon and Jean Bell

https://billiongraves.com/grave/Jack-Roger-Alexander-Weldon/18869191

It is said he had two families one in NSW and one in Qld.

What do you mean by the above?

I don’t think James and Jean, who may be Jane, Bell were married.

A news report states that James assaulted a Mrs Rahman in YOUNG. He states he was ‘living with her sister’, when she died. 2nd column: http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article248198288

Mrs Raham was a BELL:

5704/1905 RAHMAN Abdul to BELL Elizabeth at YOUNG

9754/1903 AH CHONG Peter to BELL Jane at YOUNG

His marriage may provide information on his folks: 1933 C986 Jack Weldon to Jean Cheeks

Death: 1968 B98992 Jean Mary Weldon parents Samuel Cheeks and Eva Jones

Death of children:

1946 C1366 Betty Anne Weldon parents Jack Roger Kinsam and Jean Cheeks

1972 B33106 Alan Gordon Weldon parents Jack Roger Kinsam Weldon and Jean Cheeks

I wonder if this is him, given that John and Jack are interchangeable and there is an Ellen BELL who dies in 1907:

9786/1906 BELL John Alexander mother Ellen YOUNG

16435/1907 BELL Ellen father WILLIAM

Death: 15426/1952 RAHMAN Elizabeth 86 YRS MARRICKVILLE

Jamjar have just read the link you provided from the Trove Service and seems almost convincing doesn't it!

I don’t know how you prove it.

His marriage cert is the place to start, as it is he who will have provided the information on it.

If his mother did die not long after his birth, he was raised by someone. Wonder if his father married a JEAN.

Do you know where his father died?
