WARD's from Middlesbrough and Wales

Hi, my name is kimberleigh Waller-Heathcott my daughters is Cassie-rose Hernandez.

Her father is Andrew Thomas William WARD born April 1981

We have since split up and I'm trying to do a family tree for my daughter so she knows who her family is.

Now all I know about his part of the family tree is, he has aunts called Janet Joanne and Jenny YOUNG.

I believe he gets his name from his grandfather and his mother never married.

I also think his grandmother was called Flo? and his grandfather William.

I know he had a few aunts and uncles with the surname Ward but I can't remember there names!

He is from Middlesbrough and from what I can figure out his family moved from Wales at the turn of the last century but beyond that I'm stuck and help would be a great help

WARD's from Barbados

I stumbled across your website and wanted to ask how one could trace one's roots further back than 1630.

My Grandfather has traced our ancestry back to 1630 when the first Ward landed in Barbados, West Indies.

I now have a complete set of my ancestors who were based in the island from that date.

But I cannot go back any further with Barbados records because 1630 is roughly when the island was first colonised by the English.

My ancestors originally came from either England or possibly Ireland.

How can I trace the records in the UK?

Hi there

I am helping a friend who is trying to trace his mother and her family.

His name is now George Wrightson but he was born John Ward on 7th June 1930 at Plaistow Maternity Hospital in London.

His mother's name was Gladys Ward.

He was adopted the following year by the Wrightson family when he became George Wrightson. 

George knows that his mother was quite young when she had him and herself was the youngest of her family.  The family lived in Acton but came from "up north". 

George thinks they may have gone back to the North of England after his birth.

Can anyone please help?

I have found your site and I am trying to find the wards that lived in Australia.
They moved to South Australia at some time in their life, I believe.
I am trying to find information on a Jack WARD. (J.J. Ward was his war medals)
He was in the 1st World War, I believe he may have been a light horseman.
He married a Blanche Eliza PASSFIELD (or a name similar)
They had a Daughter Doreen May, don't know of any other siblings, it is highly possible maybe even be one called Joyce.
Joyce is some how related to the family.
Doreen had a child to her first marriage, May Jean RUTHERFORD.
I think it may have been a Carl Rutherford but not sure.
Then Doreen Married again to a Mark BISHOP and had Geraldine Arlene Bishop.
Doreen went by the name Ward, then Rutherford, then Bishop and finally used the name WESTON.
They moved from South Australia to Queensland , but I believe the Bishops to be from NSW, which is where the Wards may have been from Originally.

UPDATE 19/2/2007

To update further on a bit more information that I have found,
Blanche Ward (nee Passfield) was born in 1884 believed to have died in 1975, aged 90yrs
Jack Ward was  from Ireland and he was in the 1st world war
They  came to Australia.
William  Rutherford is the correction that married Doreen (he was from Wudinua) and is It the second Husband Mark Carl Bishop that Dorren Married they have a connection to Brighton South Australia

Rotherham, Tipton, Staffordshire.

I have hit a brick wall.

I am trying to find information about my GGF, William Henry WARD.

William was born in Masbrough, Rotherham, circa 1837-1839.

His wife Sarah Elizabeth HARRISON was born in Tipton, Staffs, 1835, daughter of Edward Harrison who was born 1841 in Tipton, Staffs and was found in the 1861 census living at Henley Grove, Kimberworth, Sarah Elizabeth being 26 years old, with her brothers & sisters Emma, Samuel, Theodore, Edward, Benjamin, Thomas & Eliza.

Due to my elusive GGF, I employed the services of a company to help find him.

The result being that he could not be found on the 1861 census. 

William and Sarah Elizabeth were found on the following census.

1891 census at 25 Midland Road, Kimberworth.

1881 census at 17 Wortley Road, Kimberworth.

1871 census at 9 New Zealand Yard, Bridgegate.

The only William Ward found on the 1861 census, at the right age of 22, is with his wife Hannah, also 22 who is listed as born in Dronfield

This is ref 3503/49B living at Oil Mill Fold.

I am hoping this is my GGF who may have married again.

Does anyone know this William and Hannah, and is there a possible link???????? 

I think Hannah's maiden name may be WIGLEY.

My research includes Jim WARD, son of Edward WARD & Jane Emily SCOPES.

Jim was born 1906 and married someone called Alice.

Family sources say that at sometime, Jim lost either one, or both of his legs and lived in the Dinnington area of Rotherham, UK.

Jim signed on for work at Silverwood colliery on July 19th 1922 aged 16
