Henry George Wellard
« on: Wednesday 25 March 20 10:17 GMT (UK) »
Henry George Wellard born 1876 in Kent (Minster Thanet) was an inmate at Thanet Union, with his mother and an older sister, prior to being schooled at the Kent County Industrial School at Kingsnorth, Ashford.  By 1901 Henry George Wellard was an AB Seaman on the Gull Light Vessel.  He later left that employment and married at Goole, W.R. of Yorkshire in 1911.

I am interested in finding more about his family background, and his subsequent occupation - possibly as a seaman on vessels sailing from Ramsgate.   

It seems that his mother was Mary Jane Wellard, born 1842/3, and his elder sibling was Harriet Elizabeth Wellard, born circa 1863.

It is clear that Wellard is a widespread surname in Kent, but probable that Mary Jane was also a Thanet local - being accepted by the Thanet Union where she was stated to be a laundress.

Thank you for any information or assistance anyone may be able to provide.

Well, that's just top-class information, from Pennines and Louisa Maud.   Many thanks. Most appreciated and such a swift response.
Details and even a photo, if I can find it online.
Searching for an entry I wrote myself in my former habitation of Goole, I find it on the Captain's Table, having taken a sideways browse using the name of the landlord who I seem to think built the houses where H.G. Wellard lived out his days until 1951, I believe.   

Should you be at all interested, this is the link to one of the several local mariners who made their home in Goole.

If I am on the right lines this may be more information
1851 Broadstairs
Stephen Wellard, widower listed as Willard aged 38 born St Peter's Kent
Sarah 11
Mary Jane 8
Harriet(t) A 6
Martha 4
Rosina 2
all siblings born Broadstairs Kent

Death of mother Mary Jane Wellard aged 25 1849 Thanet

1861
The children seem to be spread about and it looks, if I am correct that Stephen had deserted the children, Sarah aged 21 and Martha aged 14 are living with a relative, nearby to a Horton family. Rosina is in Union Workhouse

I don't know what you have already checked - but by 1939 he is a widower in Goole - a General Labourer.

May be with his daughter, who later married and became Olive Moody in 1945.

His Able Seaman registration number was renewed in 1919 and 1920 -- but is then cancelled. It doesn't give a date of cancellation unfortunately.

Again this is from his Able Seamen's record on Find My Past. That is a subscription site (just in case you don't know).
