He was a drinker and had a heart attack. So we never really knew anything about him. My grandmother I guess doesnt really remember.

I'm a Welch and I'm Irish. All my ancestors are from Ireland as well. I always thought my name was Irish not English. I wonder about the validity of this article.
I'm an Irish welch too. Was told we were from ballibunyan???
Thats interesting Susan - my great grandparents were Welch's who lives in Peckham in the late 1800's - I wonder if we are related? Heather
Hi Heather Thanks for your message about the W|elch family. My Gt.Grand father was Frank Edward Welch b1879 in Aylesbury, lived in Camberwell from about 1891 and married in 1901 to Alice Shearing. does this help with your Welch's? regards from Susan
Think my old man traced our line of Welch's back to 1800s round the Covent Garden area. And I agree with John I do think the name derives from Ireland as there would have been a lot of Irish people coming to London where the names seems to be popular during the famine maybe? But also heard the name Welch derives to Welch on a bet (to go back on an agreed bet)
My Welch ancestors came from Aylesbury,Buckinghamshire and moved to Greenwich and Peckham,London in the late 1800s
