51 "The Kidstons had a daughter. Belle. I suppose her name was Isabelle. And the old woman--Mrs. Duffus and then she was Mrs. Kidston -- invited my grandmother down for supper. And she went down. And Belle was quite the lady. After they had supper, Belle said to her mother to take Mrs. Jones into the parlour and she'd look after the dishes. So this happened. But they didn't hear any dishes being washed or anything, so Mrs. Kidston and my grandmother went out. Dishes were still on the table. Went in the kitchen, there was no Belle there. Went upstairs, and a ladder--she had eloped with a fellow by the name of Irish, William Irish. And he wasn't considered good enough for Belle. But the old girl had hysterics, and started, 'I might have known something was going to happen--Belle washed her stockings today.' So when we were kids, anything special, we'd always say, well, 'Belle had better wash her stockings."
Excerpt from Early History of Baddeck by Robert Elmsley

52 "The Moir family business was established under Benjamin Moir, a native of Scotland, who opened a bakery shop on Brunswick Street, Halifax, N.S. in 1830. After his death in 1845, his son William C. Moir took over the bakery. Between 1862 and 1869 Moir built a five-story plant occupying Grafton, Argyle, and Duke Streets featuring a steam bakery, flour mill and retail store which originally operated under the name Moir and Co. A confectionery plant was opened in 1873 managed by William's son, James W. Moir, who introduced the production of chocolates. In 1875 the name of the firm became William C. Moir and Son. James W. Moir succeeded his father as head of the business in 1896 and his brother, William C. Moir Jr., also joined the firm as an associate. In 1903 the firm known as Moir Son and Co. was incorporated as a joint stock company under the name Moirs Limited. A paper box plant was added to the establishment at Halifax, and a chocolate refining plant, saw mill and wooden box (shook) manufacturing plant were constructed in Bedford where the company later established its own hydro power station. On 29 December 1925, Moirs Limited was incorporated to acquire the old firm. The company was reorganized in 1926 and established branch sales offices and warehouses across Canada and foreign agencies in the West Indies, Central and South America, South Africa, and New Zealand. In 1956 the company left family hands and was reorganized under new president F.M. Covert. Standard Brands Canada Limited acquired Moirs in 1967. The Moirs plant continued in Dartmouth as part of Hershey Foods Corporation." MOIR, James Ward (I3136)

55 "The Phillip Family
After the death of the second William Conyers in 1558, Marske passed to Joan his only daughter and heiress who, being under age, became a ward of Queen Elizabeth. A new family now enters the scene when James Phillip, an influential member of the Royal Court, persuaded the Queen to allow his son, Arthur, to marry the Conyers' heiress against the wishes of her family. As a result of the marriage, Arthur Phillip gained possession of the large land holdings belonging to the Conyers' heiress, including the manor of Marske, several parcels of land in the Orgate area of the manor of Clints and several estates in the Richmond and Cleveland areas.
Arthur Phillip leased the Grinton and Fremington mines from the Crown in 1583 with Henry, Lord Scrope, as a partner." from British Mining No 50 Memoirs 1994 pp24-40, Tyson, L.O.

Looking into the possibility that Nicholas was married to Sarah's
older sister Mary Ann CALDWELL first. They are closer in
age than Nicholas and Sarah. And since Mary Ann died in 1846, it fits well.

Simon also affixed his seal to the deed, presumably for greater solemnity. The sketch of this seal shows a conventional representation of a church, having three spires, with the legend, S : RECTOR1S : ECCL : DE : GYSELY : 'J This deed will be printed in full in Book III

He married Margaret, sister of Julian de Nevill, prior to Trinity Term,1253.

1262.— Sir William Ward and Sir Simon Ward witnessed a charter of Ralph son of German Maunsel of Burley, granting a rent of 2s. in Menston to Walter son of Walter de Hawksworth.

Witnesses : Sir Alan de Catherton, Simon son of William de Hawkesworth, Adam son of Thomas of the same, &C. '' This Beatrice must, I think, be the lady who married Walter de Hawksworth, otherwise it is difficult to account for the deed being among the Hawksworth muniments.

Undated.—Hugh son of Alan de Heukeswrth [Hawksworth] released to Sir William Ward all his claim to a rent of 1 5,/., arising from two bovates of land which Maude daughter of Robert Rufus of Hawksworth gave to Alan, his father. Witnesses : Sir Simon Warde, Rector of Giselay

The vill of Guiseley would include the Baildon property.

1385, Michaelmas Term. — Sir John Warde sued Joan widow of Sir Simon Warde [his father] tor the return of 12 charters, which she detained from him. (my note: Joan would be Sir John's stepmother)

WARD, Sir John (I7868)
86 1400-1,February 14. — The will of Simon Warde. esq., was proved by Thomas Warde, the brother and executor; it was not copied into the Register.8 I am inclined to think that Simon and Thomas were younger sons of Sir Simon, 8. A.

1414-5, March 1, April 16. — Roger Ward witnessed the agreement for the marriage of Walter, son of Sir Walter de Calverley, with Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas de Markenfield of Markenfield, and the settlement consequent thereon. Elizabeth Markenfield was the sister of Roger Warde's wife.

1415, June 25. — By the inquisition taken after the death of Beatrice, widow of Thomas, Lord de Roos, it was found that her Baildon property was held of Sir John Warde, by knight service. The information as to the tenure was probably copied from the earlier inquisition in 1383; Sir John was certainly dead, and the property was held of Roger.

1416, September 20. — Roger Warde presented William Sharrowe, priest, to the Rectory of Guiseley, on the death of Simon Warde.

1422-3.— A deed was executed relating to the estate of Sir Roger Warde, Joan his wife, and Nicholas his son, in Givendale, Asshold [Esholt] and Keswick.

WARD, Sir Roger (I7727)
89 1453.— Prior Swynton of Fountains Abbey records in his Account Book a payment of 4d. when the Abbat baptised the son of Roger Warde of Givendale at Ripon. This date would fit tor the baptism of Christopher, Roger's eldest son, but as the infant's christian name is not mentioned it is impossible to be certain.

1455.— Sir Roger Warde, knight, and Joan his wife were admitted members of the Guild of Corpus Christi at York.

Dame Joan survived Sir Roger, and married Sir William Stapelton of Wighill, as his second wife. They were admitted to the Guild of Corpus Christi at York in 1472. She was executrix of his will in 1503.

The Bowes family and various partners or associates trading lead with London merchants from Newcastle, and occasionally to Hamburg and other European ports, but there was at least one variation in this structure when in March 1593 two other members of the family, Sir William Bowes of Bradley (and of Streatlam, son of Sir George Bowes d. 1580) Henry Bowes of Newcastle, and one Richard Willance, draper, of Richmond, agreed to deliver ten fothers of „soft merchantable lead in small pigs‟ by 1st September 1593, to „the Queen Majesty‟s beam‟ Wiggens Quay, London.
There is good indication that this lead was produced in Teesdale, because
Hartlepool was the shipping port, and the indenture specified „Hartlepool weight‟ – twenty hundredweight per fother or 2240 lbs of pig lead.
