Biography

John Welsh was the son of Major John Welsh and Damaris Wyatt of Anne Arundel County, Maryland..

Captain John Welsh was first married to Thomasin Hopkins. The couple had at least three daughters: Sarah Welsh Hammond, Sophia Welsh Hall and Ann Welsh Hammond. A fourth daughter, who predeceased Captain Welsh, is presumed to have been married to a man named Davis. It is thought that the man named William Davis, as named in the will, was the son of this daughter.

Thomasin Hopkins Welsh predeceased her husband around 1617, leaving him with no sons.

Captain John Welsh was second married to Rachel Hardesty, the daughter of Francis Hardesty and his first wife, Ruth Morley Gaither. Rachel, the wife of Captain John Welsh, is named twice in Francis Hardesty's probate documents as his eldest daughter.

John Welsh and Rachel Hardesty were the parents of at least seven children: John Welsh III, Thomas, Benjamin, Rachel, Henry O'Neal Welsh, Elizabeth and Comfort Welsh. Rachel Welsh was pregnant at the time of John's death, so there may be another child whose name is unknown.

Captain John Welsh wrote his will on February 4, 1733. He specifically named all of the above children in his will.

Rachel Hardesty Welsh, the second wife of Captain John Welsh, was pregnant at the time her husband's will was written. The will was presented for probate on March 5, 1733, just a month later:
