Benet WELDON   2325   Baptised: Ralph   House: E   Born: 12 Apr 1674   in London   Died: 23 Nov 1713,  aged: 39.7   at Paris   
Clothed: 17 Dec 1690   Professed: 13 Jan 1692         
Father: George
Notes: Seventeenth child of his parents. Tried La Trappe, Jumièges (1694/5); his brother was murdered at sea for his money. People thought him unstable in mind: Allanson (B129-133) quotes enough of Weldon's own writings to suggest there was something in this.
Wrote his Memorials to help the writing the History of the Benedictine Order in 2 volumes between June & November 1707. Chapter in 1713 called for corrections. Died of carbon monoxide poisoning from a charcoal stove.
Allanson concludes, "However obnoxious Br Bennet may have been to his Contemporaries and they to him; and however eccentric he may have been in his personal character, yet the name of Weldon must ever remain intimately connected with the History of the English Benedictines, now that the Records of their body have perished in the French Revolution; since they owe to his indefatigable pen the preservation of most that they know of the Founders and promoters of their Body up to the time in which he lived." (B 133)
