  • Notes 
    • "Father George Ward, alias Ingleby, was a son of Marmaduke Ward, Esq., of Newby, near Ripon, by his wife, Ursula Wright, and generally passed by the alias of Ingleby. He was born in the year 1594, educated at St. Omer's, entered the Society in 1619, and was professed in 1634. He taught theology for some time at Liege, and was esteemed an able divine; he also served the English Mission, and for several years was chaplain to the Countess of Newport in London. He was recalled to Liege in 1647, and again professed theology, but returned to England in 1649, where he died, June 21, 1654, age 60." From the book "Records of the English province of the Society of Jesus ... in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries" by Henry Foley

      - another source says "George Ward, alias Ingleby, alias Vernon"

      His entry in the book Records of the English province of the Society of Jesus... in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries states:
      "
      Ward, George, Father, alias Ingleby,a native of Yorkshire, son of Marmaduke Ward, Esq.,of Newby, near Ripon, and his wife Ursula Wright. He was brother to the holy nun, Mary Ward, the Foundress of the Order of the Institute of the B.V.M. He was born in 1596 according to the majority of the Catalogues, though some say in 1594, and one in 1598. He entered the Society 1619, and was professed of the four vows March 7, 1634. In 1628 he was a missioner in London, and in 1633, and for several years, Professor of Philosophy and Theology at Liege. In 1642 he was again in London, but in 1645 in the Residence of St. Mary (Oxford District). In 1649 he was at Liege, and returning to the London Mission about the same year, he died there June 11 1654, aet. 58. (Biography, records S.J. vol. v. p. 681 ; also vol. vi. p. 269.) 11
      Then, in the footnote "William Ward, alias Ingleby, an elder brother, was a student at the English College, 1614. He was ordained Priest there, April 29, 1618, and died in Ireland about 1645. (Records S.J. vol. vi., as above.) The name of Ward is conspicuous in Peacock's Yorkshire Catholics and Recusants (1604). Among others, we find mention in Ripon of "Elizabeth Ward, wife of Marmaduke Ward; Jenet Ward, wife of John Ward," recusants."
