Query by terribrown

George Ward born 1867 in Yorkshire (birth not registered until 30 Aug 1882)was deported back to England about 1916 soon after his wife Ann (nee Drury) burnt to death in Adelaide, Australia in 1916. His father was John Ward born 1842 in Yorkshire and mother was Elizabeth Hobman born abt 1845 probably from Leeds Yorkshire.
Ann's father was Tom Drury born 1851 in Yorkshire and mother was named Sarah Ely born 1851 in Yorkshire. George and Ann Ward had a daughter named Adelaide May Ward born 11 May 1899 in Leeds and died 17 March 1966 in Adelaide South Australia. She married Harold Ethelbert James Skinner in South Australia on 28 Aug 1918. It is believed her family disowned her for "marrying someone who wore a brown suit". I think this may mean that Harold Skinner was a Puritan. Harold and Adelaide were my grandparents. any help please on George Ward and his family would be great.my email is [email protected]
