  • Notes 
    • - Note: There is no direct evidence that Augustus Wehling is the brother of Christophe Wehling but sufficient circumstantial evidence points to that relationship and I am listing Augustus here for that reason only. That evidence includes that both were born in Wolfenbuettel, Germany within 10 years of each other; both served Great Britain as Hessians in the American Revolution, both remained in the U.S. after the revolution, both in Quebec City; both are Protestant.

      - Note 2: In 2000, researcher Lincoln Hornburg noted the following: "In the archives in Wolfenbuettel, have unearthed a little information. There were seven churches in Wolfenbuettel in 1777: one R.C., the others ev. (Luther). The Kirchenbucher (church books - the registrations of baptisms, weddings and burials) go back to the 1600s. Under "Our People" is found: Welling, in the Am. Rev., a soldier Ledger, Christopf Welling of Wolfenbuettel is entered; age 32, 5 months at time of recruitment (deserted 6.June.1778). Searching Welling, I found: Welling, George Elias August, born Dec. 23, 1753 - registration, Schlosskirche (Castle Church, or Residenz of the Dukes) Church, Wolfenbuettel. This church, is no longer. However, you will note, no George Elias August appears on the Soldaten (soldiers) ledger. ?? was not part of the official units? Will hunt for a Cristopf next time."
      It seems very likely that Augustus Welling b. 1753, Wolfenbuettel, is in fact George Elias August Wehling, b. 23 Dec 1753 in Wolfenbuettel.

      - Augustus arrived in Quebec City in 1776 and married Elisabeth Delugat on 27 Aug 1785. He is mentioned in William Vondenvelden's petitions of 317 Hessian soldiers for land in Quebec. His middle name might have been Frederick. He was born abt 1753, Wolfenbuttel, Germany. He married Elizabeth Dumas 19 Apr 1813 at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Quebec. He was aged about 57 at the time. Dumas was 1765-1831. She was previously married to Joseph Chamberland, 1748-1799. She was aged about 49 at the time and a widow.
