Whelpton World wide
Since embarking on this wild ride called family history
I have become fascinated with my husbands maternal
ancestors. The name is Whelpton and they owned property
in Victoria and Queensland. Our Edward Whelpton appears
to have been a mariner. I can find no records of how he
came to Australia but believe he may have come via the
USA or Canada, as he is supposed to have brought a type
of Pre fabricated house with him on a ship??? I have seen
this house which sadly was burnt in this years fires in
I assume with the photos etc that were left there.
I am trying to contact the owner to see if anything was
I am now attempting a name study to see where they all
link in. If anyone has any information on any Whelpton,
any where I am willing to compile this and share. Maybe
we could have a descendants of Whelpton reunion.
