Note: Hotel man - Shediac and Moncton From History of Charles Dixon: "4 William John, eldest son of Andrew and Martha WilsonWeldon, was a mechanic and was also engaged in farming afew years; after which he removed to Shediac, where he went into the hotel business. From thence he removed to Moncton and continued the hotel business there. He married Miss Mary J. Hickman in 1849
Mrs. Weldon still survives." Marlene Hickman transcribed the following set of articles from the Chignecto Post: July 20, 1871 - Chignecto Post: "Farming - Mr. William J Weldon has commenced farming at Petitcodiac on a scale which is far beyond anything hitherto attempted, at least in Westmorland. He has sowed 65 acres in oats, 2 in potatoes, 10 in buckwheat, 1-2 in carrots, 11/8 in turnips and 70 in grass for hay. We are happy to chronicle the enterprise so unusual among our agriculturists and will watch with much interest the return Mr. Weldon receives for his labor and expenditures. The whole crop was put in by Mr. Weldon with the assistance of two men. We learn an abundant supply of black mud with both lime and plaster in the farm gives him an inexhaustible supply of manure. He has 77 acres under crop, 70 for mowing, 40 for pasturage and 80 ready to stump."
There are several articles about Weldon's hotels: January 4, 1872 - Chignecto Post: "The Weldon House Shediac was reopened a few days ago by its proprietor Mr. W J Weldon, who has been so long and favorably known in connection with it. The house has been very recently overhauled and completely refurnished for the purpose of making it inferior to no House in these provinces. Shediac is fortunate in possessing capital hotel accommodations." February 29, 1872 - Chignecto Post: An advertisement: "Weldon House, Shediac (opposite the railway station) - The subscriber would inform his friends and the public general that he has newly furnished the above Hotel throughout in first class style and it is now open for the accommodations of the travelling public. Wm. J Weldon, Proprietor - Coaches leave daily for North Shore on arrival of trains." March 21, 1872 - Chignecto Post "Mr. W J Weldon of Shediac, who has been fined several times for liquor sold at Weldon House has obtained a rule nisi for a certiorari in the case and has applied for a rule in another; the ground being a conflict between Dominion and Local authority." October 19, 1876 - Chignecto Post "The Royal Hotel has changed proprietors. W J Weldon Esq. of Shediac opened the house on Monday last and from Mr. Weldon's experience in Hotel business and from the well known fact that he and his family make it their business to accommodate guests in the most comfortable manner it is believed that the change will be for the better." April 19, 1877 - Chignecto Post: "Shediac Items - Mr. Jas Weldon of the "Weldon House" about refurnishing the new part of this popular hotel, preparatory to summer travel." May 10, 1877 - Chignecto Post: "The Weldon House Moncton will have 25 rooms added to it this summer."
