Hello Maurene,

I would suggest you contact the Galway Family History Society West and get them to look at the parish records, both Catholic and Church of Ireland, for Oughterard and related parishes, as most Welbys were and continue to be found in and around the town of Oughterard. Its since spread over much of Connamara - and in the time you speck of was also found in smaller numbers in Galway city - but as far as I can determine Oughterard was their starting point.

Do you have any idea who was the first member of the family to settle in Galway, why, and when? Cheers, Adrian
