1625 The Building of the First Methodist Church.

A conference was held at Windsor on the 28th and 29th February. 1792.
Four hundred and forty dollars were subscribed for a church. Among the trustees
were Edward Church, Henry Scott and William Walter Rickards.

William Walter Rickards, whose house and workshop were used for religions services in winter, for some years after the erection of the shell of the new church. Walter Rickards had come with the loyalists to Shelburne, whence he had removed to Halifax, and soon after to Windsor. He had been brought up in another branch of the Church, but his wife belonged to a family which had been among the first in Windsor to approve of the doctrines and discipline of Methodism. At the close of the first service held in his house, the preacher, without inquiry, made announcement for another. Mr. Rickards, though by no means pleased, offered no opposition, and at length provided a pulpit for the frequent services which followed. Years after, when he had become a member and a leader, his wife would pleasantly rally him about the perseverance of that Methodist preacher, whose boldness had long since ceased to be objectionable.

1632 The following extracts are from The History of Carlton in Coverdale 1086-1910 by Nora Elaine Joynes
"Coverham rectory A large-scale dealer in land acquired the first lease of Coverham. rectory from the Court of Augmentations - none other than Leonard Beckwith, who was the Receiver for the Augmentations in Yorkshire. Here in the Archdeaconry of Richmond he was operating outside his own area, where he also acquired monastic property. Beckwith was granted the lease of Coverharn rectory for twenty-one years at the rent of f20 on 10 June, 1537. In 1562 the reversion of the rectory, then in the tenure of John Ward, was granted to Thomas Allen and Thomas Freman, along with the Rectory of Iford, Sussex. 45 The tithes of the ancient parish church thus passed to a succession of lay impropriators, who bought and sold their shares of the rectory like any other piece of property, while the pastoral needs of the parish were served by a perpetual curate."
"The witnesses in 1613 gave differing evidence about the tithes paid by the other four granges, but they all distinguished between Carlton Flatts and the other four. The phrase 'except Carlton Flatts' occurs repeatedly. An explanation was given for this difference by Richard Geldart of Carlton, who claimed to be aged ninety or thereabouts. He stated that John Ward, who was an impropriator of the rectory, also obtained a lease of the five granges for twenty-one years from the Earl and Countess of Lennox. He sub-let the other granges, but fanned Carlton Flatts himself. This evidence was partly contradicted by one of the Dawson family who said that about fifty years before (i. e. about 1563) his father Roger Dawson was an under-tenant of John Ward leasing half of Carlton Flatts for seven or eight years, and never paid any tithes to John Ward or any other farmers of the rectory. However, it seems clear that the difference between Carlton Flatts and the other four granges came about in the time of John Ward."
The witnesses described events after the Dissolution, when John Ward, Luke Metcalfe and Leonard Buckle (father of the plaintiff) had a lease of the parsonage of Coverharn and of the chapel and its three acres of land, and were undisturbed during their lease. Roger Dawson said he had heard they paid f6 rent (which seems to indicate the offerings were profitable)"

1636 The following is taken from "History of the Baptist Churches in the North of England, from 1648 to 1845"
By David DOUGLAS (Baptist Minister.)

The church at Hexham, after the resignation of Mr. Tillam, divided into two sections—the one on the Tyne, and the other on the Derwent. _Two elders had been ordained by Mr. Tillam—the one, Mr. Richard Ord, who had, henceforward, the charge of that portion of the church in Hexham and the vicinity of the Tyne; and Mr. John Ward, who had the charge now, and for a
long period afterward, of the disciples on “the Derwentwater Side.”
With regard to Mr. Ward, he seems to have been a native of Muggleswick, the village where Mr. Tillam was so successful in shewing to many the error of infant baptism. The name of Ward seems to have been indigenous here, as it has been known since the seventh century. We are unacquainted with the immediate parentage of Mr. Ward, but we are told by tradition,
that he was “a skilfull mineralogist." As a man of capacity, he was, probably, employed as an agent in the lead mines, in the neighbourhood of Muggleswick. He appears to have been brought under the influence of
religion by Mr. Tillam, and baptized 16th October, 1652, in the twenty-Second year of his age, being born in 1630.
In 1655, Mr. Ward was elected an elder of the church on the Derwent. He was, at this time, only in his twenty-fifth year, but he had qualifications adapted to the important work, as is evident from his success and perseverance, during the long course of sixty-two years. The exercise of Mr. Ward’s ministry, even in the time of Mr. Tillam, would, it is probable, be chiefly confined to the friends around the Derwent; it was permanently so afterwards, while at the same time he co-operated with the-section of the church on the banks of the Wear.
Mr. Ward, along with the brethren of where he resided, at the commencement of the controversy between Mr. Tillam and Mr. Gower, had warmly taken the part of his own minister, but so soon as the church in Coleman-street had withdrawn from him, he and his brethren appear to have done so likewise. The result. was, the friends at Hexham withdrew from them, as they had thus, in a day of trial, deserted their best friend—their spiritual Father. For several months there was therefore no communication between them.
A reconciliation, however, was then attempted at Eadsbridge, near Muggleswick, but at this meeting they could not agree. The friends at Hexham then held a conference with the church at Newcastle. At this meeting, it was decided that messengers should be deputed, to meet the Hexham and Derwent brethren, and endeavour to reconcile them. This meeting proved successful. It is said to have been “held at brother Joplin’s, 226. July, 1656.“ The deputation, after mutual explanations, declared the conflicting parties to be one body in the Lord. The ringleader, however, of the schism—Mr. S. Anderton, was expelled.
From the period of the above conference, little is noted regarding the affairs of either section of the church. None appear to have been added during the
three following years, but in the end of 1658, one of the members was expelled for marrying an unbeliever, and two were reproved for “going to one of the world’s drinkings after a wedding." In the early part of the
year 1660, Mr. Anderton was restored, “to the great joy of the church;"

"Mr. Ward built a house for himself, near the banks of the Derwent, a little south of Muggleswick, which still remains, and is in the possession of the descendants of his brother, Cuthbert Ward, also baptized by Mr. Tillam, and a minister of the same church. From all the writer can ascertain, Mr. Ward himself left no issue, but descendants from the family of his brother Cuthbert, and perhaps two others named Michael and Anthony, are connected, under different names, with several
Baptist churches, to the present day. Messrs. George and John White, of Barnard Castle, &c., with many others, have descended from this family."

As to Messrs. Ward and Carr, there is reason to believe that they were both, in some degree, classical scholars. The former on his decease, gave, not only his hundred pounds to the support of the cause, but his library for the benefit of his successors in the ministry. Of this, we have a list in the archives of the church, containing not only books in theology, but of history, and the learned languages. In Latin, we have Figurae Grammaticae, Corderius, Ovid and Horace, a Bible and Testament, Institutio Logica, De Sacramentum, &c.; also a French Grammar, In Greek, a Grammar, a Clavis Linguae, and a New Testament. In Hebrew, there is the Critica Sacra, Thesaurus Biblicus, &c. In church and general history, Eusebius, Josephus, &c., Cromwell’s Life, Eikon Basiliké, Bennet’s Reformation, &c.; and in theology and scriptural exposition, Dr. Owen on the Hebrews, and on the person of Christ; Caryl on Job; and some of the works of Crisp, and Goodwin, and Baxter, and
Bunyan, Flavel, Usher, &c. The amount, in all, was above hundred and eighty. Surely these men, could not be said to be ignorant, if they closely studied their Bibles, with the help of all these. They
were men who did not love ignorance; as one of their books was entitled, “The Excellency of Learning.” Their library was one that far excelled Bunyan's, when, in Bedford goal, he wrote his immortal Pilgrim. IN THE NORTH of ENGLAND. 139

An extract from an article in Baptist Magazine and Literary Review, vol.12, written in 1820:
"BAPTIST CHURCH, At Hawkshead-Hill, Lancashire.

Formed, June 15,1678. Then present, 1. Mr. Robert Blenkinship, minister at Great Broughton, Cumberland. 2. Mr. John Ward, teaching elder of the church meeting at Hexham, Cold Rowley, and Hamsterley. It is supposed that he was the successor of Mr. Tillam, who had been sent in 1651, by the church in Coleman-street, under the care of Hansard Knollys, to preach the gospel in the north, and who laboured with great success in the vicinity of Hexham. Mr. Ward, being a skilful mineralogist, was employed by a mining company as their steward. He visited the copper- mines in Lancashire once in eight weeks, and then preached m the neighbourhood of Hawkshead-hill, Conistone, and Tarvor." 
WARD, John (I6633)
 
1637 The following was found in a book called 'Swaledale - Its Mines and Smelt Mills' Mike Gill, Landmark Publishing, 2nd Ed 2004, Ashbourne, Derbyshire. ISBN 1-84306-131-7'. I believe the smelter named Ralph Warde is one and the same as this Ralph Warde, born about 1618.

"The site of a second mill is revealed in a sale of land at Orgate to Robert Willance in 1614. It is not clear who built that mill, but for convenience Tyson called it Willance's Mill. When Willance died in 1616, his estates including the mill, passed to his nephew, Brian Willance. The latter's daughter and heiress, Elizabeth, married Doctor John Bathurst in 1635. He worked at the Arkengarthdale Mines, first under the Commonwealth (1649 - 1653) and then under a lease from the Citizens of London from 1654. Ore was carried from shafts, chiefly around Windegg, via Gun Nest to Willance's Mill. Here two smelters, (Ralph Warde and John Taylor) were paid 10s 6d for each fother of lead they produced plus 2d for weighing it….”
A John Taylor close to Ralph's age in the area was one John Taylor b. in Forcett, 01 Jan 1620, son of William of Ovington.

Another quote taken from http://sometimes-interesting.com/2015/03/22/orewinners-and-deadmen-lead-mining-in-swaledale/:
"The smelters were the highest paid men in the mining operation as it required considerable experience to be able to produce good quality lead.
The men doing it may not have been aware of the chemical terms for what they were doing, but it was quite sophisticated chemistry that they were performing, first turning the ore into lead oxide, and then adding carbon to remove the oxygen to produce the finished metal. They controlled everything: lighting the furnace, choosing the type and amount of fuel to use, and the casting of the lead pigs at the end of the process."
-----------------

Ralph Warde is also mentioned in the book 'A Dales Heritage' by Marie Hartley and Joan Ingilby, in chapter 2 'Two Seventeenth-Century Lead-Mine Proprietors' describing the entries in the business account books, in 1657, of Dr.John Bathurst, manorial lord, and the owner of Clints mine:
The accounts are complicated by the borrowing which prevailed. Almost everyone, including the smelters, was in debt. For instance, although the partners at the White Gang had raised 247 ½ loads of ore, they were only paid for 225 ½. The twenty-two loads deducted cancelled out previous debts, and 'Clear' is now written at the bottom of their column of figures. A further list of individual miners record debts ranging from shillings to £2 8s. 8d., and one of the smelters, Ralph Warde, owing £3, had paid off part leaving him still owing £1 15s... The rate for the smelters was 10s. 6d. For smelting a fother and 2d. a fother for weighing. Between them they received £39 16s. 3d. During the year. Ralph Warde also chopped wood and the other smelter, John Taylor, built up 'Orgait house in Clints ground which was burnt' for £1 2s. 6d.“
__________________________
Other entries re baptising and burial of Ralph's children are, unfortunately, illegible.

Here is another quote from a book that may apply to Ralph's widow:
"The restoration of the monarchy brought in the 'Hearth Tax' - (two shillings on every hearth in order to provide Charles II with some revenue. The only apparent extant record for the area is 1672. It shows that the Widow Warde was exempt."

Birth: Jul. 6, 1618 North Yorkshire, England OR? July 12, 1618 Ingleton, West Riding, Yorkshire, England Death: 1659 Armagh, County Armagh, Northern Ireland OR? 1683 (age 64) Longhill, Lurgan, Armagh, No. Ireland
"VIII. William of Ingleton, from whom descend the 'Lowthers of Yorkshire,' and of 'Skryne county Meath'."
Irish Pedigrees, or The Origin and Stem of The Irish Nation. 5th Ed., Vol II., John O'Hart, London: James Duffy and Co., Limited, Dublin: Burns & Oates (Ltd.), Glasgow: Hugh Margey, New York: Benziger Brothers: 1892, p. 291.
"Sir Lancelot apparently left no will, but in 1635, George’s cousin, CHRISTOPHER LOWTHER noted in his diary that 'Sir Lancelot was "considering leaving the estate to George’s elder brother, the Reverend Lancelot Lowther of Kirkby Thore" adding that he might change his mind and had, in any case, decided to give George 50 pounds a year ‘during his (Sir Lancelot’s) life. That Sir Lancelot did change his mind is known, because in a document of 1659, George is described as ‘late of Screene’ in Ireland, deceased.”
"Also, this George married Frances Piers first, the daughter of Henry Piers of Tristernagh, County Westmeath, and granddaughter of Archbishop Thomas Jones of Dublin. Henry Piers was an eminent traveler, and wrote an account of his travels in 1595 on the continent. George's estate at Skreen consisted of some 300 acres and included the remains of an ancient abbey as well as the castle (or fortified house) where Sir Lancelot spent his last years. George died at some date before 1659 leaving three sons: Edward, Lancelot, and William; and two daughters who are mentioned without names in Sir Gerard II's will."
Regarding the Irish Branch of the Lowthers, in Chapter Eleven of the Lowther Family by Hugh Owen, on page 132 he states:
The branch of the Lowther family known as the Irish Branch stems from George the youngest son of William Lowther of Ingleton and youngest grandson of the Elizabethan, Sir Richard Lowther (1532-1608) Members of this branch sat in the Irish House of Commons in Dublin.

"Inherited the estate of Skreen in CO. Meath from his uncle Sir Lancelot, the Irish judge who died in 1638 and founded what has become known as the Irish Branch of the Lowther family."
"Captain of Horse in Ireland under the Marquess of Ormonde."

Parents: William Lowther (1574 - 1641) Eleanor Welbury (1578 - 1641) Spouse: Elizabeth Fitzgerald Lowther (1620 - 1683)*
------------------------------------------------------------
George had sons Edward, Lancelot, and William.
There was a Lancelot Lowther and a William Lowther in "Fighters of Derry in 1689."

Still need to fill in a couple of generations to complete this 'scenerio'. 
LOWTHER, John (I5080)
 
1643 The marriage record says "George Ward of the chapelry of Brompton in the parish of Northallerton, bachelor"
Witnessed by James Ward (his brother?) and Ann Pattison. 
Family F2677
 
1644 The marriage record states Lancelot is 'of Marrick'. Family F2705
 
1645 The marriage register indicates 2nd marriage for each of them.
Also states George's father's name as 'John'. 
Family F1818
 
1646 The marriage took place in St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, Walden, New York Family F607
 
1647 The Marske parish burial record states "He came out of Netherdale (now called Nidderdale) some months before with a wife and 3 sons and a daughter where he had been a smelter. Pauper."

There was a 'Manor of Netherdale' which was located at Ramsgill which is about 20 miles south of Leyburn. There was even a 'Netherdale Mining Company' there.

Here is a quote from a book about the effects on the men who worked in the lead smelters.
"... He spoke of the ill effects of the lead fumes on the smelters, many of whom died in their early forties due to contracting a lung disease. A miner himself, he said that the higher wages did not tempt him to work in the mill." - The Lead Smelting Mills of the Yorkshire Dales and Northern Pennines. R. T. Clough, 2nd Ed. 1979 
WARD, Robert (I639)
 
1648 The Marske parish record of Ann's burial says she was the wife of Edward Ward of Stanhope in Weardale. Maybe she was in Marske visiting relatives, perhaps a son.
In the Hearth Tax list of 1666 there is an Edward Ward living in the area of Muggleswick, which is only 8 miles north of Stanhope. This is very likely the same Edward. 
UNKNOWN, Ann (I6046)
 
1649 The name HODGSON is found in censuses from 1841 at Orgate.
This raises the possibility that William Hodson's wife Lucy Ward may have inherited the house at Orgate which back as far as Symond Ward (of Orgate) may have owned. 
HODGSON, William (I1665)
 
1650 The name of their 2nd son, Edward, establishes Hellen's father as Edward Warde. BROADBELT, Edward (I6841)
