    Notes 
    • He came to Australia in 1885, aged 22, and joined his uncle, Niels Christian who was already here and married to Catherine Christie. Niels Peter would later marry the daughter of a first cousin of Catherine.

      Niels Peter was on the Roll of Victorian Voters at the Federal Referendum, 1899, so would have been naturalised by then.

      His name was Villadsen, but as this was pronounced by him as Welladsen, he changed the spelling of his name in Australia so English speaking people would pronounce it properly. In Northern Jutland dialect v in front of a vowel is pronounced w . That is unknown in the standard Danish language.
