    That they were of the genuine material needed for the subduing of rough country may be inferred from the fact that their sons, now mainly resident in and around Masterton, constitute one of the most formidable football teams to be found in any county in the Colony. The Masterton Football Club, which on at least one occasion beat the Christchurch Club, succeeded only in drawing the game with the Welch family.
    The accompanying group shows eighteen members of the family. Seven are the sons of the late Mr. Henry Welch, five are sons of the late Mr. Wm. Welch, three of Mr. J. R. Welch, himself one of the party, and two of the late Mr. Richard Welch.
