Nathan's Family Tree

Nathan Welham Family Tree

Family tree provided by Shirley Brierley of Sydney ( a descendant of Eliza Welham, one of Nathan’s sisters).

I have omitted anyone born after 1920 to protect the privacy of those still living, at Shirley’s request.

Nathan and Jane’s children are shown in blue, and after each child is listed their descendants.  Any additions or corrections are most welcome.

Hi Elizabeth,
The information I was given Olive Ewins' birthplace was Ramsgate, N.S.W. Australia.
I'd be much obliged to know where your info come from.

Elizabeth Welham 23.01.2016 10:09

Just a quick correction. Olive EWINS (Nathan's wife) was born in Fitzroy, Victoria, Australia, and not in England as stated. They met in Hurstbridge.

Jenny Richardson 26.01.2016 06:20

Hi Elizabeth,
Would you have any family information or old photographs of your Welham ancestors that you would be willing to have added to this website?

Jenny Richardson 31.12.2015 01:25

Hi Teneille,
Would you have any details of photos of Allen's family and sister Mary that you would be willing to share on the "Nathan's Descendants" page?
