    • Possible that Thomas married Margaret before he came to England around 1783, and she is the wife he talks about in his 1785 petition.

      Jean Welbanks Gemmell Minhinick was born in 1903 and brought up by her maternal grandparents (Hiram Welbanks and Esther) who had been born before 1850. She wrote ("At Home in Upper Canada") that they told her that their grandparents had left Poughkeepsie and the city of Philadelphia around 1783 and gone to Prince Edward County.

    • I have read an account that Fegan was raised by his uncle John Welbanks. So he is a grandchild of Thomas the pioneer, but it's not definite who his father was. Because George died young that might be a reason for his uncle to raise him. PIoneer Life on the Bay of Quinte (1904) says he was the son of Margaret Welbanks daughter of the pioneer .
