1813 Robert Willance is famous in Richmond and Swaledale for surviving a leap of 212' from Whitcliffe Scar in November, 1606.
The following is from 'Romantic Richmondshire':
"At the summit of these bold cliffs is a spot known as '^ Willance's
Leap," which makes one shudder to think of the marvellous exploit of a
hunter at this place in the year 1606, the truth of which is vouched for
in local records. Robert Willance was a member of a family who came into Swaledale from Dent in the 16th century, and through success in trade acquired considerable wealth and became owners of the manor and estate of Clints. Harrison affirms that Robert Willance was the son of one Richard Willance, a draper, of Richmond, who married and left two sons, Robert and Nicholas, the latter of whom succeeded to the Richmond business. Robert was a successful lead miner, and his adventurous spirit led him not only to enterprise in the depths of the Swaledale hills, but he loved also to explore on foot and on horseback the wildernesses of their rugged summits. On the occasion above referred
to he was out hunting with a party when a fog coming on he galloped unawares to the verge of this tremendous cliff. Before he had time to withdraw his horse it sprang fractiously forward and bounded over the cliff, its rider half paralysed on its back, to the valley below, a fall of over 200 feet ! The animal was killed outright, and it is marvellous to think that Willance escaped with but a broken leg. The leg however had to be amputated, and tradition affirms that it was interred beneath a large stone in Richmond churchyard.
Willance afterwards became an Alderman of Richmond, and lived till 1615, when on the 12th of February in that year he was laid beside his leg. To commemorate his extraordinary escape at Whitcliffe he caused three stones to be erected at the places where his horse had taken the fatal leap. Each stone is 24 feet apart, and two of them are inscribed : " 1606. Glory be to our merciful God who miraculously preserved me from the danger so great.'* "

In his will, which is registered at Richmond and at York, there are a few interesting bequests. He leaves 208. per annum, for 13 years, to be given at Richmond every Christmas even to poor widows and the aged poor, and a similar sum, for a like period, to the needy at Winster, Crook, and Croft. On the day of his burial each poor householder in Richmond is to receive 12rf., and every other poor body, in the town or present at the funeral, is to have a penny, and "dynners for the best." To Elizabeth his wife he gives a round hoop ring and a double ducat of gold.
To his nephew Brian Willance, his heir, he leaves his best horse and saddle and furniture, his best sword and dagger, his books, his books of debts excepted, and all his freehold land and mortgages. To Brian's two sisters, Anne and Jane Willance, he leaves 40/. To Thos. son of his master, Mr. Richard Willance, who was probably his elder brother, he leaves his close behind the Friars. To each of his " god- barnes," the boys 2s. each, the girls 12rf. — "there names are in my booke." To halt Brian Willance of Winster 10^. To John Willance aUas Wetherilt, his supposed son by Agnes Wetherilt, he leaves 300/. To Elizabeth Willance, alias Coates, his supposed daughter by Margaret Coates, now the wife of Giles Alderson of Ravenseat in Swaledale, he gives 100/. To his nieces Ann and Jane, daughters of Nicholas Willance his brother, he leaves 50/. each. The supervisors of his will are Francis Tunstall, Esq., Roger Gower, Chr. Askew, and Humphrey Wharton, gentlemen, to each of whom he gives five angels. In his inventory Willance's effects are valued at 751/. 5^., excluding what is due to him in his debt book which amounted to the large sum of 1119/. Us.
There is one bequest in Willance's will which is a very interesting one. It is a gift to the Corporation of Richmond.
"I give to the brotherhood of Alderman and Burgesses of Richmond, to remayne for ever with the Alderman for the tyme being, and by him to be delivered over to his successor, earely, one sylver bowle, whyte, weight twelve ounces, to be] ingraveu upon the same. This howle given by Robert Willance to the Incwyorated Alderman and Burgesses of Richmond^ to be used by the Alderman for the tyme being and
to he re-delivei^ed by him, his execut(^s, or assignes, to his suc-
cessors for ever/' This inscription,* to which the date of
1606, the year of Willance's wonderful escape, has been added, still remains upon a piece of plate which is in the possession of the Corporation of Richmond. It can scarcely, however, be called a bowl : it is rather in the shape of a cup or calix rising Hke a flow^er out of a graceful stalk. It is where the inscription on the piece of plate is given. a singularly handsome piece of plate, and must have been of some antiquity when it came into the hands of the Alderman.

Brian Willance, the son of Nicholas Willance, was the heir
of his uncle Robert, the Alderman of Richmond, and became
the owner of Glints. Of Brian Willance there is little known.
He left behind him two or more daughters and co-heirs,
among whom his property was divided. Of these, Elizabeth
carried Glints and other property in Richmond and elsewhere
to her husband, John Bathurst, M.D.

1814 ROQUE THE HEART AND ESSENCE OF CROQUET. Professor Jacobus Writes on the New" 'Croquet. Charles Jacobus of Springfield, Mass., has in the current number of Collier's Weekly an illustrated paper upon The New Croquet. Speaking of the new name, roque, he says: "This unique and fitting name was invented by Jared S. Babcock of New York city i--The first and the last let-ter were dropped from the word croquet, leaving (pronounced roke). so that in derivation, as in fact, it is the heart and essence of croquet." BABCOCK, Jared Starr (I2423)

1830 second son of William Ward...was born about 1200. He may have survived his brother Nicholas, who was living in 1245, but if so it cannot have been for any great length of time, for he appears to have been dead before 1262. This doubtless accounts for the few records concerning him. I think he probably did survive Nicholas, from the fact that he was a knight. Knighthood in these early times was not usually due to prowess on the field or service to the state, but to the more prosaic fact of owning a certain amount of property. I think that this Simon was probably the one to whom Archbishop Gray granted the lordship of Baildon, and that the grant was probably on the occasion of Simon's marriage in 1210".
1228, Wednesday after the Translation of St. Thomas [July 5]. — Simon Warde holds five tofts and a bovate of land in Givendale, paying 6d a year...
This small estate was probably given by his father on the occasion of his marriage.

1833 Settled in Douglas, on the Kennetcook River, the first farm east of the Township line ANTHONY, John (I1007)
 
1834 Settlement of Northcote on the marriage of Anthony Ward, May 14, 1621 (Marriage settlement made by Anthony Ward upon his wife, Elizabeth Layton) WARD, Anthony (I6781)
 
1835 She appeared in the 1920 census as age 75, 'widowed'. WARD, Mary Maria (I216)
 
1836 She appears on a list called 'Nominal Return of the Deaths within Last 12 Months: Ward, Amy, 79, Widow, month of death, August, inflammation of the bowels. MOSHER, Emetine (Amy) (I123)
 
1837 She could be the Jane Calvert who died May 12th 1667 in Muker, North Yorkshire, but no definite proof. WARD, Jane (I6769)
 
1838 She could be the Mary Moore born 8 Feb 1662, Forcett, daughter of John Moore of Eppleby.
She could also be a sister of Lancelot Moore of Marrick.
The name John would be consistent with Lancelot Moore's firstborn son John.

Alternatively, she could be the Mary Moore born 26 Dec 1667, Forcett, daughter of Marmaduke Moore, also of Eppleby, likely a brother of John Moore above.

Considering she married a Manfield, this makes sense because nearly all the Manfields came from the Forcett/Eppleby/Aldbrough area. 
MOORE, Mary (I10202)
 
1839 She died at 48 Morris Street, Halifax.
Buried in Camp Hill Cemetery, Halifax 
WARD, Mariah (I1216)
 
1840 She died between the 1881 census and 1886 when her husband remarried. WARD, Elizabeth O. (I1169)
 
1841 She is buried in lot 066N, owned by James King. WARD, Caroline Anne (I4599)
 
1842 She is buried in Old Parish Burying Grounds, Windsor, Hants County, NS WARD, Mary (I212)
 
1843 She is in a picture in 'Brooklyn in Retrospect' where it shows Helena Miller and Olive Miller side by side wearing identical clothing. MILLER, Verna Olive (I1656)
 
1844 She is listed as 'Grocer' and lives in between the 'Board Inn' and the 'Shoulder of Mutton' Inn. CLEASBY, Jane (I8621)
 
1845 She is listed in the 1901 Windsor census in the household of Harry and Maggie Ward as Mary Lowthers, mother-in-law. However, the birthdate is wrongly given as July 20, 1855 and her age as 45 which is of course impossible, since she was born in 1838 and married Samuel Lowthers in 1861!
In the 1910 US census she is living with her son Frederick, wife Augusta and their seven children in Framingham, Massachusetts. The year of immigration to the US is given as 1899 for the whole family, so it appears she must have moved back and forth before she returned to Nova Scotia and died there in 1911.
Since we don't really know who Mary and Matilda's father was, could it be that this is the missing link in the 'Mi'qmak' stories? Maybe Mary and Matilda's father was native. Matilda was listed as a 'cane worker' on her death record. This may also point to a native background. 
BERRY, Mary Ellen (I17)
 
1846 She is mentioned in her father's will of 1551 as 'Elizabeth Ward, widow, my daughter'. DODSWORTH, Elizabeth (I6920)
 
1847 She is mentioned in Simon's will as 'my grand daughter Sarah Ward, daughter of Lucillia Mosher, so must have been born before Lucillia married Tonge Mosher.
The will reads: "three ewe sheep and the increase of them from the time of my decease until she is eighteen years old to be giving her by my executors hereafter to be named." 
WARD, Sarah (I514)
 
1848 She is of Kirkby Ravensworth parish. He is of Gilling Family F3720
 
1849 She never married. WARD, Anne Eliza (I178)
 
1850 She signed a land sale document in 1790 with her husband William Hall. Nancy (I983)
