Hi there, I am trying to find out more about Daniel Ward , born 27th
August 1925, or maybe 1924.
I think he was born in Liverpool
and his mother's maiden name was Rush.
He was a farmer's son, ? from Cheshire and in the summer of 1950
was working on a farm in Norfolk.
Any help would be gratefully received, thank you.

married Norbert Strauss and had one son who died 5 days later. Norbert
Strauss died on Apr 21, 1949. Lena May re-married Charles Planner who

information about him.
I last posted on WardAndRelateD in 2004.
Still seeking information on John Ward, born 1884, married 1908, died
A document I have says:
"Hilda Glover married John Ward, a joiner at the 'Salt house' making
ammonium sulphate for export during 1914-18 war.
He was an athlete and footballer who lived with
relatives in Woodhouse.
There is a road named after him."
There is a "John Ward Street" in Woodhouse, Yorkshire, but I've been
unable to yet confirm if the road was actually named after him, and if
so when and why.
Any information on John, and especially his connection to John Ward
Street, gratefully received.
A family story says John lived with an aunt Eleanor (who married an
undertaker George Waller) after his parents died.
Evidence suggests he does seem to have lived with
George Waller when his parents passed, but that
George actually married Charlotte Ward.
Charlotte seems not to have been a direct relative
of Johns and it is uncertain if or how she was related to John - most
likely she was a distant cousin.
The census says she was born about 1851 in
Woodhouse to Thomas and Phebea Ward, and lived in Handsworth in 1871.
By 1881 she was married to George.
Any information on Charlotte and how she was related to my Ward line

John (my grandfather, born 1913 in Eckington,
buried in Aston),
Francis, Arthur, Bessie, Hilda, Mary Elizbath, Fred and Joyce (who
married Mervyn Pillinger).
John Ward senior's parents were Arthur Ward and Phoebe Fox.
Arthur Ward was born 1850, Woodhouse, Sheffield, and died 1891 in Derby.
He is named variously as a cattle dealer or
butcher. Phoebe Fox lived from 1851 to 1886 and came from Derby.
Arthur had siblings Walter (born 1841)
Clara (born 1845, married James Brooke)
Bernard (born 1848) and possibly George (born
Their parents were Daniel Ward and Elizabeth Elliott.
A family story says Bernard Ward had a family in Russia, and an old
letter seems to partially confirm this - a daughter of his died in
This area of Bernards life remains sketchy however and any more
information would be gratefully received.
Daniel Ward was born about 1818, Handsworth, Yorkshire (according to
He married Elizabeth in 1838 in Sheffield,
Yorkshire, and died 1869 in Derby.
He was a cattle dealer and appears to have
relocated to Derby sometime in the 1850's.
Elizabeth was born about 1816 around Sheffield.
Daniels father was William Ward, a 'Pig Jobber'.
Apart from his occupation, nothing is known about
William, though he was probably born in the late
1700's around Sheffield.
