England
According to Bet Redhead (letter 29 March 2000):

One of the John Welchers - father or son - hit on some rocky times and it was James Craven who came to the rescue and took over some of the assets for a time. He was a solicitor in Manchester.

I think it must have been John Welcher Jnr as I have been told that John Glen Welcher eventually took over the assets again. Mildred has told me that the Cravens used to come and visit Grandma and Grandad Welcher (John Glen and Eliza) here (27 Primrose Hill Doddington).

From 1861 Census (Film RG9/1043 N. Witchford, sub-district Chatteris, Enumeration district Doddington Parish... south of Turnpike Rd):

Benwick Rd "Wheatsheaf" (Folio 41?):
John Welcher Head 47 Steam thrashing engine dr Born Doddington
Charlotte Wife 29 Born Reepham, Norfolk
John G Son 5 Born Doddington
Charles do 4 do
Michael J do 2 do
Elizabeth R Dau 1 do

So John Welcher and his first cousin Richard Welcher (born 1818) both had pubs in Benwick Rd in 1861. At this time there were about 5 pubs in this part of Doddington. There was also a Union Workhouse with 196 people - no Welchers.


From 1871 Census (Film RG10/1609-58+? N. Witchford, sub-district Chatteris, Enumeration district 11 - south of the Turnpike Road):

Primrose Hill:
John Welcher Head 56 Farmer, 66 acres, 3 men Born Doddington
Charlotte Wife 59 Born Reepham, Norfolk
Charles Son 14 Farmer's son Born Doddington
Michael do 12 do do
Rose Dau 11 Scholar do
Richard Son 7 do do
