Ward June 01, 1816 to Bishop Ward November 30, 1844 to James
Alfred Ward December 07, 1879 to James Henry Ward September
12, 1909. I am looking for information on any of the relatives

trying to trace my Wards in Leicester but not having a lot

from Newark in Nottingham and they then moved to Leicester
and brothers George born abt.1821 and James lived in Hotel
Street Leicester 1851, George was married to Ann and they
had a son William who was my gggrandfather. George and James
were both fishmongers and James later moved back to Newark
before settling in Scarborough by 1871. He was married to
Maria from Tugby, Leicester and they had children Sarah,
Charles Henry, George Edward, Mary Ann and Alfred.
1891 James is widowed and living at 5 Nelsons Place working
as a fish dealer. Any help or info would be appreciated and
look forward to any messages, happy hunting everyone

Greetings to all of my WARD
I too, have run into a
genealogical road block. I am trying to find out who the
father of WILLIAM MASON WARD was. William was born in 1848,
in King's Lynn, Norfolk. In 1872, he married Elizabeth Fanny
Filmor in Chatham, Kent. They had 4 children: Percy Mason
Ward b.1872 in Redhill, Surrey; Sidney Mason Ward b. 1874 in
Redhill Surrey; Archibald Mason Ward b. 1875 in Hackney,
London; and William Edgar George Mason Ward b.1877 in Hackney,
London. WILLIAM MASON WARD Died Dec.26, 1876. (and may be
buried in New Jersey, USA)
WILLIAM'S mother was
Charlotte Elizabeth Ward b.1827 in King's Lynn, Norfolk.
Charlotte married James Wix in 1858, 10 years after William
was born. At that time William was living with his aunt,
Harriet Eliza (WARD) MASON, and uncle John Mason.
Charlotte was the daughter of
William Ward, b.1789 d.1870, and Pleasance Filby b.1789,
d.1841. Both were from the King's Lynn area in Norfolk.
William was a farmer.
can see, I still don't know who William Mason Ward's father
and Pleasance had the following offspring. All at King's
Filby Ward b.1819 d.1875
m.1839 to Mary Anne Brunton
Ward b. 1820
Anne Ward b.1822
m. to John Gray??
Eliza Ward b. 1825 d.1915
m. 1847 to John
Charlotte Elizabeth Ward b. 1827
Henry Edward Ward b.1829
Any help would be greatly
Do you know anyone in
this picture of The Silverwood Brass Band ?
Research into my WARD
family line has resulted in the above picture.
I believe that the chap, on the front row, 3rd from left, is
Also, I believe the chap fourth from right, on 2nd row, is
Jack's father who was secretary of the band.
My interest is because my WARD family lived on Abell Street,
Whinney Hill and there is a possible connection because Jack and
his father may have connections with Abell street.

is Anthony (Tony) Ward. I live in Arbroath, Scotland
seeking information about the relatives of my father as I begin
my family tree.
was Arthur Peter Ward born in Leicestershire? On 22/09/22. I
believe he worked in a shoe factory possibly in Bolsover or
Market Harborough after leaving school. He was called up for war
service in 1944 and was stationed at the Edzell air base in
preparation for the landings at St Nazaire later that year.
of a large family and I believe his sisters were Mary, Faith and
Vina two of whom I remember visited us in Edzell when I was very
spoke about his brothers but particularly that two including
Edgar were killed during WW2.
died a few days before his 70th birthday at Montrose in 1992.
Children of Arthur Peter Ward and Helen Pennie:
Anthony William Ward
Patricia Helen Ward
June Anne Ward
Grandfather I believe was William Charles Ward who married Sarah
Bassett. They lived at Lansdowne Road Leicester at the time of
Arthur's Wedding in Edzell Scotland on 01 April 1944.
Grandfather was Collier working in the Leicestershire &
Derbyshire coal mines. I have a photograph of Sarah Bassett.

I'm trying to find Albert Ward on behalf of my uncle, Arthur
Albert was living
in Piercebridge near Darlington, but moved to Darlington about
10-15 years ago, but not too sure!
My father, John
William Ward (Big John) died in 1985 aged 45, kept in contact
with his half brothers, Arthur, Albert & Dick? (not sure if it
was Dick or George)
As well as his
brothers who I do have contact with, my nfather was the only
brother to keep in touch with his half brothers, so none of my
uncles know much about Albert, or Arthur come to that.
Arthur lives in
Penarth, South Wales.

Company's works at Masborough and was taking them to Middle

assistant driver, William Hunt, jumped out of the cab and threw
bricks under the wheels in a desperate effort to reduce speed

desperately trying to get a lead on the Ward side of my family
from the Dudley area (Pedmore Road). I have done well with my
granfathers side but my Grandmother is proving to be more
Minnie Ward born Sept 1908
married George Palmer in Sept 1929
was the daughter of Albert Ward and Julia Jones both as far as
I can work out were born at Round Oak (Dudley West Midlands)
had two other girls Emma Elizabeth and Mary (who is believed
to have married a Ben Bowen).
believed that Julia first married Thomas Ward in 1898 (who was
Albert's brother) but passed away about 1904/5. Julia and
Thomas can be found on the 1901 census with a 2yr old William
who I believe married an Elsie - but again unable to trace.
this is so Thomas's parents were James and Mary living a few
doors away also in Pedmore Road.
any one has information to confirm this link so I can then
search further back I would be very grateful.

John Ward, ROTHERHAM,
trying to trace my G G grandmothers family. Ellen Ward came to
South Australia in 1847 with parents Thomas and Sarah Ward. I
believe she came with the following siblings Thomas (1831-1904),
Sarah (1832-1919), Robert (1835-1864),
Jane (1834-1899), Hester (1836-1898),
Ann(1839-1921). Ellen was born on the 14/1/1841 and died in
Nairne SA 2/11/1877. Hester seems to have emigrated then gone
back to England to marry a William Fear. They came from Wedmore
in Somerset. I would like to know who Thomas's parents were and
more about his family. I have the following dates for Thomas,
he was baptised in 1808 and died in 1897. I would like to have
some more exact dates for all the children as the years are only
a calculation on the age at the time of death. Can anyone help?
