My name is Travis Ward.

I am 21 years old and live in Colorado, USA.

I don't really know much about my family or its roots so I was hoping you might be able to help me.

A long time ago my uncle, Gary Ward did some research and said our name originated in either Scotland or Ireland.

If you could e-mail me back that would be amazing.

I don't know what you could really do for me but if you have any questions that could help I would be glad to answer them.


Thank you so much!, Travis.

My grandmother was Adelaide May Ward, born about 1899 - possibly in Leeds.

She emigrated to South Australia with her mother when she was ten - about 1909.

I believe she had a twin brother named Sidney who died at birth.

Her father was George Ward.


Can anyone help. Terri, my email is kennterri"at"hotmail.com 21/11/2008 REF 014-21118

We are trying to trace the Emneth, Norfolk branch of the WARD family.

We have got back as far as Richard Ward, born 1796.

He died in 1st August 1875 and was buried in Emneth.

Does anyone have any information about his parents, grandparents etc. who may have come from Garboldisham, Norfolk?


Please reply to john"at"sally35.fsnet.co.uk 21/11/2008 REF 012-21118



Hi, I am currently at a standstill, there appears to be lots of references to the ward's in Bradford but I cannot narrow it down.

I am trying to trace my fathers side of the family.

WILLIAM ROBERT WARD (my grandfather) was born about 1900 I believe in Bradford.


My father ALBERT THOMAS WARD was born in Bradford in 1926 died 1975.

This is all the information I have at the moment and this is patchy.

I think the name COATES may also be linked.

Any information would be greatly received.


Many thanks, Richard Ward rw018x0619"at"blueyonder.co.uk 21/11/2008 REF 011-21118

WARD's from Montrath, Queens County, IRELAND.

I am researching my wife's family and am looking for any information on the family and Ward ansestors of:

James Ward (b1792 - d~1859) married  Margaret Julian (b1812 - d1886)
farmers from Montrath or Clonan, Queens county, Ireland. Their children where:

Lucy Ann Ward (b1832-d?)
George Ward (b1833-d1855)
Jane Ward (b1835-d1870) married Henry Brereton in 1860.
James II Ward (b1837-d1912) born at Montrath, Queens, [county], Ireland married Matilda Alley (b1840-d1912)
Sarah Ward (b1839-d1913) married John Alley (1834-1869) in 1861 in NZ
Rebecca Ward (b1841-d?) married Stephen Nosworthy (b1841-d1868)
Hannah Ward (b1842-d?)
Amelia  Hester  Ward (b1843-d1922)
Muffy Ward (b1844-d?)
William Henry Ward (b1845-d1886) married Mar Jane Austin(b1847) in 1867, children George, William, James, Margaret. <--- My wife family line.
Harriet Ward (b1849)
Margaret Ward(b1851-d1853)
Margaret Elizabeth Ward (b1853-d1922) married Thomas Tubman in 1877

I think that James Ward (1792-1859) may have had a brither George Ward (b1810-d?) but I am not sure.

Some of the family and decendants emmigrated to New Zealand in 1860 and later in 1868-9
living around Rock Hill, Halswell near Christchurch, Canterbury, N.Z.

Any information would be appreciated.

WARD's from Elkington, Claxby, Earls Heaton, Farsley, Louth, Mirfield, Northamptonshire, Okatoks (Canada), Thornby, 

I have just discovered your website and thought that perhaps someone reading this might find a connection to my Ward family and be able to fill in the blanks, as it were.  I am researching my dad’s ancestral line, dating back to 1778 and the birth of my 4th great-grandfather John Ward.  I believe he was born in Elkington, Northamptonshire, and from there my ancestors moved to Lincolnshire (Claxby, Louth, Thornsby), and then into West Yorkshire (Mirfield, Farsley, Earls Heaton, Hull).  Some of the information I have is a little sketchy and I cannot vouch that it is entirely 100% accurate, which is why I am here.  I am the granddaughter of Leslie Ward (b. 19 Dec 1913, West Yorkshire).  I would love to make a connection, and any information would be most welcome.  I apologize for this being such a lengthy post, but details are important.

WARD's from Manchester

Hi, are there any Manchester "Ward's" out there? My Granddad, George Ward, died when my mum was only nine years old which would be approximately in 1932. There had been rift in the family because Granddad married my lovely Gran who was a Catholic of Irish descent, and his family had disapproved.

I can only presume it was because they were Church of England. 

Consequently, mum never really knew her Ward relations.

Below is the information I have gleaned so far:
My Grandparents.
George Ward (b. 26th Nov 1881) Mary Agnes nee Harrison (b. 6th November 1884) married 1908
(Granddad was born in Glossop)
Louis b. 1909
Margaret b. Mary 1911
Elizabeth b. 1913
John b. 1915
Robert b. 1916
Mary Agnes b. 1919
Kathleen b. 1921
Veronica b. 1923 (Mum)

WARD's from Marton-cum-Grafton, Yorkshire

Hello 'Ward and Related', This is for your message board please.

GEORGE WARD (Born 1883ish) son of JOHN.
On 23 December 1911, GEORGE WARD married my Gt. Aunt, Annie Elizabeth BOUNDS,

at Marton-cum-Grafton, Yorkshire, England.

He is 28, a widower, and a groom.

It is stated his father is JOHN WARD.

On 16 September 1912, they had a son, STANLEY, born in Yorkshire.

Annie Ward remarries in 1918, in Bletchley, Bucks, so George has died between 1912 and 1918.
Stanley remained in Bletchley for the rest of his life, and died in 1971.
I would be very grateful for any information on George or Stanley.

I presume George came from Yorkshire, but it may not be the case, and he probably died in The War, but there are so many George Wards out there!
Any help greatly appreciated,
Thank you, Rose Cowl

WARD's from RAWMARSH, Rotherham

Hello!  If anyone can help me with the following it would be very much appreciated as i'm well and truly stuck!
My grandma (Eva OLDFIELD nee WARD) was the daughter of Charles WARD and Susannah GUEST.

I have just about sorted out the GUEST side but i'm totally stuck with the WARD side as it seems my great grandparents didn't marry, so I can't get any info on my great grandfather Charles WARD. 

Here are some details I do know:
Charles WARD (b. ?) and Susannah GUEST (b. 17 Jun 1887, Rawmarsh, S. Yorks) are the parents of 13 children, namely;
Earnest Duke WARD
Jack Ludlam WARD
Charles William WARD
Ethel WARD (b. Bet. Oct - Dec 1918, Rotherham)
Hilda WARD (b. Bet. Jan - Mar 1920, Rotherham)
Ronald WARD (b. Bet. Jul - Sep 1921, Rotherham)
Eva WARD (b. 08 Oct 1922, Rotherham... m. Francis Fredrick OLDFIELD on 04 Sep 1943, Rotherham... d. Oct 1997, Rawmarsh.
Kenneth WARD
Marion WARD
Wilson WARD (b. 14 Feb 1932, Rotherham... d.Sep 2001, Mansfield, Derbys.)
Gladys WARD
(Possibly an Edna WARD) 
I also know that Gladys WARD went to live with her uncle (Charles' brother) Wilson WARD whom I believe may have been born in Rawmarsh, but i can't say for definate.
Thank you for reading this long message, and if anyone has any information please get in touch!

WARD's from Mt. Airy NC USA

My 82 yr old Aunt, Nannie Belle Poteat Ward, is trying to reach anyone who might know of my Uncle Orville Ernest Ward Jr's ancestry.

They lived in Mt. Airy NC USA for most of his life.

His father was a minister I believe in the Baptist Church.

Anyone with any link to their genealogy please feel free to email me for further contact info for her.

She said that an Anne Ward, from Bath OHIO USA wrote her and offered a book on the Ward Family but she has misplaced the order form for the book. 

Also, if you have any information concerning the following surnames I would appreciate any insight into websites that I might follow up on information regarding these.

Poteat, Hiatt, Crouse, Shores, Stephens/Stevens, McKnight, McGee, Kirkman and Ingram

Thank you, Cyndy Hiatt McGee CMcgee7327"at"aol.com 22/1/2008 REF 004-2218

WARD's from Dover and Cowes, Isle of Wight

"Martha Ward, widow of John Ward Esq of Dover and formerly of East Cowes Isle of Wight died 25th August 1855 aged 73" is commemorated on a tombstone in Woodbury Park Cemetery Tunbridge Wells England. 

Does that interest any of your Wards today? 

I am secretary of a conservation group that among other things is seeking to out together a dossier about the lives of the individuals buried in this beautiful Victorian cemetery.
