Robert Ward, parish clerk of Richmond, was left an inheritance in 1566 from Cristine Burghe, last prioress of a nunnery at Nunkeeling, East Yorkshire.


She also leaves to Thomas Ward, her god son, and also to Robert Ward the younger. So, this also fits because this Robert Ward had sons Thomas and Robert.
Also, Robert married Anna Welden in Apr 5 1560. Cristine leaves something to 'my coussyn old Mrs Welden' … perhaps this was her connection to Robert Ward… Anna's mother maybe?

11 Born In: Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada

Passed in: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: September 19th, 2011

It is with deeply saddened and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of our father, Michael Dennis Peters, at home on Monday, Sept. 19, 2011. He was the son of Mrs. Dorothy Marie (Gallant) and the late Henry Morton Peters.
Born in Charlottetown, P.E.I., and moving to Cape Breton when he was just under a year old. He spent his younger years on Mira Road playing pranks around the neighbourhood, with the boys from Peter’s Construction. Leaving high school, he was employed as an engineer at the heavy water plant until it closed in 1985. He then moved onto studies in computer engineering and continued with that for the rest of his life. Applying his talent, artistic flare and eye for detail he helped develop the memorial package for Chant’s Funeral Home bringing the DVD projects into many homes. He loved spending time with his family and friends, socializing, and reminiscing of all of those little special moments in life. He loved to travel, and taking the time to get there was half the fun. He held a special place in his heart for anywhere near an ocean.
We would like to send a special thank you to Dr. Paul Murphy, Dr. Phillip Curry, and his nurse Sharon, for all of their help throughout these years.
Survived by his mother, Dorothy Peters; his children, Christine, Michael, Charles, Sarah, Nicholas and his angel, Emma Peters; brother, Richard Peters; four grandchildren, his pride and joy, Cameron, Alex, Keegan and Rebecca; aunt, Helen Bruno, as well as several aunts, uncles and cousins.
Our father was a very kind-hearted, generous, patient man, who was known and loved by many. He was a son, brother, father, grandfather, and most importantly a friend to everyone who was blessed enough to know him. We love and miss you so much Dad. You will forever be in our hearts in everything that we do and until we all meet again, patiently wait for us to come home.
Cremation has taken place. There will be no visitation. A memorial service will be held 3 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, 2011, at the S.W. Chant & Son Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney, with Rev. Sheldon Chant officiating.

19 "Adam, who was the ancestor of the Wardes of Salley near Ripon. I have many notes on this branch of the family, but can only include such as affect the main line. Adam left a son, Nicholas (dead 1300), whose wife, Sarah, was probably a Conyers. Nicholas left a son Simon (dead 1291), whose widow, Alice, married Henry de Eyville before 1300. Simon left two daughters as co-heircsses, Sarah and Isabel, both under age in 1305." WARD, Adam (I8015)

21 "Among the tenants in the other part of the township in the 17th century was the family of Ward. They perhaps acquired their estate here from the Girlingtons, who owned 12 oxgangs in 1606. (fn. 118) Robert Ward held two messuages and 12 oxgangs in 1625, of which half was held of Sir George Conyers of Sockburn. (fn. 119) His son Robert (fn. 120) held lands in Over Dinsdale in 1633, (fn. 121) and Richard and Thomas Ward answered for five hearths there in 1673. (fn. 122) During the 18th century this family seems to have acquired the greater part of the township, and the Misses Ward were the principal landowners in 1823. " From WARD, Robert (I6760)

34 "Edward was a Gas Tender for the Kerosene Gas Light Company.  They Lived on Nesbitt Street in Windsor, Nova Scotia, near the Gas Company and the railway station.  This area was once called Nesbitt Island.  The present day 101 Highway crosses Nesbitt Street where the King property was once located.  Nearby is a well known landmark, the leaning chimney of the textile mill.  Edward had a nickname, Gas King, probably derived from his occupation."
Quoted from an email from Carolyn Brooks, Edward's great great granddaughter.

On the marriage record of Edward's daughter in 1880, she says her father's occupation is 'mechanic'
On the marriage record of Edward's daughter Maud in 1883 she gives Edward's occupation as 'carpenter'
On the marriage record in 1883 son James gives his parents names as 'Edward and Caroline' and his father's occupation as 'wheelwright'.
On son James' 2nd marriage record in 1902 he gives his father's occupation as freight manager.
In Hutchison's Directory of 1865 Edward is listed as "laborer, house, Island point, near Gas works"
In Hutchison's Directory of 1867 Edward is listed as "railway station".

38 "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."

42 "He sided with the Barons in their dispute with King John, but made his peace with the young King Henry III. His lands, which had been seized by the crown, were restored to him, as appears by the following order:
1217, November 3. A writ was sent to the Sheriff to Yorkshire, commanding him to give to Nicholas Ward such seisin of his lands as he had before he withdrew from faith and service of King John, and to which he was disseised by order of Henry III, he having now returned to his allegiance."

1248, August 19.— Nicholas obtained a grant of free warren to himself and his heirs, in all his demesne lands in Gyvendale and Escheholt.
