   Notes   Linked to 
2051 There is no documentation to probe that this William Berry was a son of Caleb. Only basis for speculation is that his birth date and location are right and the name William would make sense because of Caleb's father possibly being William also.

William does not show up in either the 1891 or 1901 census for NS or NB 
BERRY, William (I5793)
2052 There is no documentation to prove that this Phoebe married William, son of Robert Berry. This is only entered as a possible scenario.
There was a "William Berry and wife Phebe" mentioned in a Cumberland County land transaction in 1802. 
UNKNOWN, Phebe (I5789)
2053 There is no existing record of a John Warde who dies in Skelton-on-Ure. I have only entered it based on the will of John's aunt Joan which requested that John receive "a tenement at Skelton" upon the death of Nicholas Warde her brother.
As well as the will of Joan (Tunstall) Ward, wife of Sir Roger as follows:
"I will that my son, John Warde, gyfe to Roger, his basterd son, x marke, whych x marke he awe me for corn and catall, what tyme as he thinkes most necessary to the saide chyld."
-"I make my doghter, Dame Margaret Norton, and my son, John Warde, my executors, and my son, Sir John Norton, supervisor; and Iwill that all the resydew of my godes be disposed for the well of mysoule." Proved March 23, 1507-8.

"1514, November 15. — Henry VIII granted to "oure humble servant John Warde" the office of "baner berer before Saint Wilfride" at Ripon, with a fee of ^5 a year. (This probably refers to John son of Sir Roger Warde, and he may be the John Warde who was plaintiff in two Fines relating to property in Great Ouseburn in 1502 and 1505. 
WARD, John (I7726)
2054 There is no proof of date of death. I only based this date on his wife Mary's death record in 1645 which does not call her a widow, so I'm assuming John died after her. WARD, John (I6565)
2055 There is some evidence that points to Barbara being born at Marske. Possibly a daughter of Anthony Coates of Orgate. If so, she likely inherited Orgate House from him. COATES, Barbara (I9052)
2056 There was a Cuthbert Ward of Muggleswick Park, Parish of Muggleswick who registered a will on 23 July 1606. There is no record of this will being proved. It doesn't mean he died soon after. He could have made his will early in life.
Cuthbert WARD, of Mugleswicke Parke and of the parishe of Mugleswicke (Muggleswick) [Muggleswick, County Durham]

WARD, Cuthbert (I6676)
2057 There was a John Ward of Thorp Thewles who could be her father. WARD, Elizabeth (I6907)
2058 There was a Nicholas Ward who was a witness to a Yorkshire deed in 1473-4 at North Stainley (between Ripon and Kirklington).
"Release by Ralph Neville, Earl of Westmerland, to John Holgrave of Tanfield, etc.... Witnesses: Nicholas Warde, esq.; John Brown the elder, John Symson."

- Also:
Quitclaim: Richard Kyghley, William Franke and Nicholas Warde to John Radclyf of Hewyke (likely Copt Hewick or Bridge Hewick which are close to Skelton on Ure). All property in Elueslake, Glusborne and Hewyke which they had of the gift of his father, Christopher Radclyff. Witn. Robert Radclyf, George Ogylsthorpe, John Seyll chaplain. Given at Hewyke. 
WARD, Nicholas (I7902)
2059 There was a Potter family at Telfit. Thomas Potter sen. of Telfit died 1768. POTTER, Barbary (I6054)
2060 There was a Roger Robinson in Amherst, son of Thomas Robinson.
Appears on a list of the men above 21 years of age,within the Township of Cumberland 30th day of Aug.,1785.
Roger Robinson is listed among the 'Town Officers' in River Philip for 1789. Roger appears in the poll tax for 1791 for the Township of Amherst. Roger and his son Thomas are mentioned in the will of Thomas Sr. in 1793 along with his wife Ann. 
ROBINSON, Roger (I2371)
2061 There was a William Corbit mentioned in an article on the lead mining in Marske. Looks like William decided to name his children after Timothy Hutton. as follows:
"In 1608 Sir Timothy Hutton granted a lease to William Corbet, Katherine his wife (daughter of Arthur Phillip) and Hutton Corbet, for faithful service "for the seatte and soyle of the laite decayed lead mylne or smelting houses in the territories of Marske laite in the tenure of Richard Willance of Richmond, deceased." 
CORBET, Timothy (I6185)
2062 There was a William Ward of Mulwith who had an uncle who lived at Court —Inference is that this was Thomas Ward, member of household of Lord Mounteagle who alerted him of the Gunpowder plot. WARD, William (I7732)
2063 There was also a William Beachum in the area who married in 1864:

BEACHUM, Stephen E. (I11910)
2064 There was also an Addison Longstaff born 1 Apr 1774 in Romaldkirk, illegitimate son of Margaret Langstaff. LONGSTAFF, William Addison (I9451)
2065 There was an Elizabeth Hutchinson 'of Whaston' in the Kirkby Ravensworth Burial records, July 19, 1752. This is possibly the same person and would explain why there are no records of any children born to Bartholomew Hutchinson. Also Elizabeth's father John Ward had a copper smelting mill at Whashton. Maybe Bartholomew worked there for his father-in-law. WARD, Elizabeth (I633)
2066 There was another Samuel who died in Lisdillon, who could be this Samuel instead:
Buried March 31, 1872
Samuel Lowther
Age 31 
LOWTHERS, Samuel (I5546)
2067 There were only a few records of girls with the name Dinah in the surrounding area as follows:
-Dinah Ossop, dau. of Thomas of Grinton, baptized 7 Oct 1711.
-Dinah Pearson, dau. of Charles of Bowes, baptized 24 Oct 1710.
-Dinah Raine, dau. of William of Romaldkirk, baptized 17 Feb 1711.
-Dinah Walker, dau. of Thomas of Kettlewell, baptized 25 Jun 1709.
-Dinah Dunn, dau. of Hugh of Darlington, baptized 12 Oct 1709 
UNKNOWN, Dinah (I10551)
2068 There were several baptisms recorded for a Thomas Bell around 1680 +/- 10 yrs. Two of the more likely to be the husband of Jane Moore are:
1. Thomas Bell b. 25 Jul 1690, Healaugh, Grinton, father is Thomas.
2. Thomas Bell b. 1 May 1687 Kirkby Ravensworth, father is Humphrey. 
BELL, Thomas (I9061)
2069 These Hunters came from County Ayr, Scotland, where they were hunters by occupation-hence the name. Due to religious persecution in Scotland, the Hunters moved to Northern Ireland. David Hunter came to Nova Scotia from Aghadowey, in Londonderry County, Ireland with his wife and six children. Two more children were born in Nova Scotia. David Hunter's wife was Margaret Martin, daughter of Lodowick Martin of Ulster. Their ship was bound for Philadelphia but was wrecked off Sable Island, not far from Nova Scotia. Another vessel 'The Good Ship Blessing' came to the rescue and took the Hunter family and other passengers to Halifax. The Hunter family settled on the Wentworth Road near Windsor (Hants County) and lived there from 1769 until 1785.
They then moved to Ardoise Hill, at St. Croix. 
HUNTER, David Fleming (I1829)
2070 They (Martin & Polly) settled at Goose River (Linden) Cumberland County where he was the first white settler. His Grant dated 1809. They had six sons and three daughters. (Miss Lucy Fowler Logan, sister of Senator Hance J. Logan, who are descendants of Martin Hunter and Polly Berry, has furnished me with the following information of the early Hunters, which I have incorporated in the Berry record. I will here give it in abreviated form. The vessel in which the families of Allison, McCaffay, Hunter, Miller, etc. came to this country sailed from Londonderry, Ireland in 1769 for Philadelphia, on the way the vessel got into trouble at Sable Island, and the passengers were landed at Halifax. Among the passengers were David Hunter and his family from Aphadowny, Ireland, (his grandfather came from Scotland), David Hunter was married in Londonderry, Ireland to Margaret, daughter of Ledewick Martin of Ulster. They settled at Ardoise Hill, near Windsor, N.S. where he took out a grant of 1850 acres in 1785 from King George III. They lived to good old age and were buried in Windsor, N.S. David Hunter and Margaret Martin had six sons and two daughters. HUNTER, Martin (I1043)
2071 They did not marry Family F3796
2072 They didn't have children of their own, but on the death of Henry's brother, Jabez, he and Ann took Jabez' twin sons to raise. They were James Caldwell Walker and John West Walker born 29 May 1858. BOND, Ann Hull (I1311)
2073 This 1891 census lists him as age 74 and Marjory as 76, so something doesn't fit with his year of birth! LOWTHERS, Edward (I655)
2074 This address is according to a Detroit border crossing document for Christina with Roger and Richard going to Port Huron, Michegan. Family F67
2075 This Anthony appears on a Memorial plaque in St. John's church, Bellerby.
Private Anthony Ward. 34714. 10th Battalion King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, formerly 6423 the Yorkshire Regiment. Son of Mr. T. and Mrs. J. A. Ward, of Lilac Cottage, Bellerby, Leyburn, Yorks. Killed 3 May 1917. Aged 23.
Born Bellerby (Yorks), Enlisted Leyburn (Yorks).
WARD, Anthony (I7516)
2076 This birth year is determined by his age of 60 yrs on the death record. LONGSTAFF, William Addison (I9451)
2077 This birthdate and parents are not confirmed. There are other options.
- John Langstaffe b. 23 Feb 1723 in Romaldkirk to John and Elizabeth
- John Langstaffe b. 10 Jan 1730 in Romaldkirk to William and Margaret (this one is closer in age to Christian Sayer. 
LANGSTAFF, John (I10449)
2078 This birthdate makes him awfully young to be marrying at 16. If this is not the right William, it could be the one born 1696 in Barton, Yorkshire. The Barton and Forcett Wilkinsons had ties back to Henry Wilkinson of Forcett (died 1649) and his brother Francis of Barton WILKINSON, William (I8529)
2079 this census actually gives her age as 63 which would make her born in 1867.
She is living in the household of Lucy E. Haven and Charles H. Haven 
WARD, Laura (I203)
2080 This census gives his birth as 1756 HARDEN, Matthew (I10707)
2081 This could be an ancestor::
On Dec 15, 1526 in Minskip, a Richard Warde, Labourer, Brother of John Warde was loading oat sheaves onto a cart ('plaustrum') pulled by four oxen and two horses of John Warde, in a field in Minskip. He was standing on the cart, when the front part of the cart broke and the oxen and horses became separated from the cart. Richard fell into Minskip Beck and the oats from the falling cart fell on top of him so that he could not get out of water and he drowned.

One scenario could be that the above John Warde is the one who was left a 'tenement in Skelton on Ure' in his grandmother's will. 
WARD, Thomas (I7947)
2082 This Daniel Wilcox married Elizabeth Cooke, a double descendant of original Mayflower passengers John Cooke and Sarah Warren WILCOX, Daniel (I1594)
2083 This death date came from Alice MacInnis who saw it in an old family Bible that her grandmother Lowther had. I ordered her death certificate which confirms the date of death and says she was living in Belmont, Hants County, was a housekeeper, name of attending physician was Charles Morris Weeks and she was buried at 'public' cemetery, Avondale.
It also gives her correct age, confirming her birth year as 1838. 
BERRY, Mary Ellen (I17)
2084 This is 'Uncle Kit' who gave the family bible to KL LONGSTAFF, Christopher (I8482)

Witness Elizabeth Ward, Thomas Simpson, Dr Metcalf, Hannah ward
Verdict Accidental injury to head at birth, daughter of Hannah Ward singlewoman.
this is a newborn child that was buried clandestinely in the church yard at bellerby. From enquiries made it appears that Hannah Ward , single woman, residing in Bellerby is the mother of it. She states that on Thursday evening last she was unexpectedly confined whilst alone in the house and was unable to get any assistance and the child was dead when it was born. it further appears that Dr Metcalf was called in the next day he saw the child and examined the navels tring , it appeared to ahve been broken and the woman Ward said it had broken when the child dropped from her whilst she sat upon a pail thinking that she was going to have a motion. She told the Dr that the child gasped once and then died. He the Dr told them to bury it. There does not appear to have been any attempt to conceal the child but the clandestine burial of it appears to have created the suspicion that there is something wrong, Signed Wlamsley police constable at Leyburn.

2086 This is a different Pharez Constantine than the one born around the same time in Newport, Nova Scotia. This is determined by the census information. This Pharez was married to a Damietta and appeared with her in 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, and 1891 all in New Brunswick. CONSTANTINE, Pharez (I11600)
2087 This is added tentatively until proven otherwise. It is so far only based on the following excerpt (brackets mine):
By Nelson Mason, Grandson of William Addison Scott
A family history of the Scotts is contained in two leaves from an old family bible in my mother's possession, herewith reproduced under date of February 12, 1905.
The only sister of CHARLES STUART, called the Pretender (Bonnie Prince Charlie), married John Gilmor. Their daughter, Mary Gilmor, married Robert Scott."
(of course history books report that Charles did not have any sisters, only one brother Henry, so how reliable this family story is cannot be known. I suppose it's possible there was an illegitimate child who was this 'sister' of Bonnie Prince Charlie)
STUART, Mary (I1812)
2088 This is added tentatively until proven otherwise. It is so far only based on the following excerpt (brackets mine):
By Nelson Mason, Grandson of William Addison Scott

GILMORE, Mary (I1513)
2090 this is an assumption that this Elizabeth is a child of James CALDWELL by her birthdate and the proximity of her dwelling to the other Caldwell's of this line when she was married. CALDWELL, Elizabeth (I761)
2091 This is not a definite birthdate for Elizabeth. It is based on the assumption that Elizabeth was born in Kirkby Stephen because her marriage took place there. WARD, Elizabeth (I9262)
2092 This is only a guess that this Christopher Ward was a son of John Ward, Lord of Barton Manor. Only because he died in Barton. John Ward's daughter Winnifred was his only heir, and this makes sense, since Christopher died before John. WARD, Christopher (I6916)
2093 This is possibly one of the two John Ward's listed in the 1673 Hearth Tax for North Yorkshire as living in Bedale. WARD, John (I6450)
2094 This is possibly one of the two John Ward's listed in the 1673 Hearth Tax for North Yorkshire as living in Bedale. WARD, John (I6543)
2095 This is possibly the Cuthbert Ward who built and lived in Newlandside Hall in Stanhope.

Excerpt from 'All Around Stanhope':
This building is pleasantly situated, and is of modern construction. It was formerly the seat of the Wards, and is said to have been built by one Cuthbert Ward, whose memory is recorded on a limestone altar tomb in the parish churchyard, as follows :—
In Memory of Cuthbert Ward, Gentleman, and
Elizabeth, his wife, of Newlandside Hall, who
departed this life. Elizabeth, July the 12th,
1769, aged 56 years. Cuthbert, December the
9th, 1776, aged 68 years.

Cuthbert Ward was in early life a sea captain, and at his death the estate was inherited by his son, Captain Ward. The estate afterwards came into the hands of the Harvey family, of Newcastle, then into the Newlandside Estate Co., and it is now owned by the company above mentioned."

Excerpt from The history and antiquities of the county palatine of Durham , etc.,Published 1857
"Newlandside Hall, an ancient estate of the Wards, is
the property of the representatives of the Harvey family,
timber merchants, of Newcastle."

Excerpt from Weardale in Old Photographs:
"Apparently there was a rough causeway here as recorded in 1777 when footpads, having robbed Captain Ward of Newlandside and Thomas Robinson of Bushey Flat, fled across the causeway tearing up planks behind them to hinder their pursuers."

Excerpt from An Historical, Topographical, and Descriptive View of the County Palatine of Durham:
"Newlandside Hall, an ancient estate of the Wards, is the seat of John Rippon, Esq."

I found some photos of the ruins of Newlandside Hall online, with this caption:
"Many of the farms, particularly in the Stanhope area have suffered from the effects of quarrying. Many have disappeared altogether such as Ely House, Mellenberry, Hollin House and East & West Capplespeth. Two still remaining, Shield Ash and Newlandside Hall are tottering on the edge. Photos 1 & 2 (Courtesy of Judith Bainbridge) show Newlandside in the 1950s the others show it in 2012"

Excerpt from Natural History Transactions of Northumberland, Durham, and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Volume 7:
"In descending from Thimbleby Hill (nearly twelve hundred feet), after passing Newlandside Hall, the ancient seat of the Wards, the quarries of Newlandside were inspected, where blasting by means of dynamite was being proceeded with, and which operation was viewed from a safe distance with much interest. Here some lead ore was shown which appeared to be rich in metal. The hill side was then gradually descended, through fields where hay making was in process. The hedgerows were studded with the Woodruif, Asperula odorata, in bloom, its sweet aroma being very grateful. In the bed of the -Wear a remarkable bed of Basalt first described by Sir W. C. Trevelyan was pointed out. After crossing the Wear by the picturesque stone bridge Stanhope Hall was visited."

Excerpt from The Antiquities of the Abbey Or Cathedral Church of Durham. Also a Particular Description of the County Palatine of Durham, Compiled from the Best Authorities and Original Manuscripts:
"Names of the Castles and Mansion-houses belonging to Nobility and Principal Gentry in this County...
Newlandside Hall, near Stanhope, to Cuthbert Ward, Esq." 
WARD, Cuthbert (I6674)
2096 This is probably the John Ward who was beheaded during the Civil War:
"Three were afterwards executed at London and one at Durham, and these eight (apart from the Earl of Northumberland) were the only men of property or position who were put to death. Indeed it may be said that, with the single exception of the Earl of Northumberland, beheaded at York, 22nd
August 1572, none of the real instigators of the rebellion were ever
brought to justice. With the common people it was otherwise. They were hanged by scores in every town and village, not necessarily the most guilty, but an arbitrary number, " as the bigness of the place is " — the object being to terrorise the people. Several hundreds, at the lowest estimate, were hanged in sight of their homes, on the village greens and market-places in this district. And although there is reason to believe that the order was not in
general carried out to its extreme limit, Bedale was dealt with with exceptional severity. The whole five appointed for execution, out of a total of thirty-one, were duly put to death, as appears from the diary of Sir George Bowes. Their names are Christofer Nyxson of Bedell, Thomas Dickenson of Ayskew, and Wylliam Harreson, John Warde, and Thomas Symondson, all of Craikall. Some human remains dug up near the entrance to the Rectory have been supposed to be the relics of these unfortunate men. " 
WARD, John (I6409)
2097 This is probably the Mary Ward listed as one of the singers in the parish church in 1790 along with Simon Ward who would be her father in law. PARKE, Mary (I644)
2098 this is speculation based on Lucinda's naming of her children COCHRANE, Huldah (I1817)
2099 This is the John Ward mentioned in the will of Joan Ward (His aunt), sister of Sir Roger Ward (1430-1472) as follows: "I will, with the consent of Nicholas Warde, my brother, that a tenement at Skelton go to John Warde, son of Sir Roger Warde, deceased, after the death of the said Nicholas."
(My note): It is not known whether this John Ward actually received the tenement at Skelton. However, in the book 'Memorials of the Church of St. Peter and Wilfrid' there is the following entry:
"The Prebend of Munckton
according to the antient Survey.
Item of John Warde, William Smithe, Thomas Steele, Thomas Tailor and others in the Towne of Skellton, p. Ann. 40s."

Also, according to the book 'Mary Ward - A World in Contemplation' it says: "In 1502 John took possession of a farm with appurtenances in Great Ouseburn and at the same time fifteen properties with appurtenances in Great Ouseburn, Brampton and Haytfield, as well as one third of the mill in Brampton and of a manor, also in Great Ouseburn" 
WARD, John (I7726)
2100 This is the Samuel that I originally thought was my great grandfather. I changed my mind when I discovered the Samuel Lowthers b. 1820 who had siblings with the right names. LOWTHERS, Samuel (I5079)
