looking for Parents of GGG.Grandfather THOMAS RUSHWORTH WARD

ALL IS RESEARCHED BACK TO THOMAS RUSHWORTH WARD. HE WAS MY GGG. GRANDFATHER.BORN IN LONDON.

IN HIS FAMILY PRAYER BOOK HE GIVES HIS DOB. AS 1781. ALL I HAVE OF HIS PARENTS IS THAT THEY WERE THOMAS AND

MARY WARD.THOMAS AND MARY HAD TWO EARLIER CHILDREN GIVEN THE SAME NAME-THOMAS RUSHWORTH. THEY BOTH DIED YOUNG IN 1772 AND 1774. I HAVE A DEATH RECORD OF ANOTHER WITH THAT NAME DIED IN 1780.

AMONG THE ENTRIES IN THE PRAYER BOOK IS A DEATH OF NATHANIEL WARD OF LONDON AGED 73 YEARS. I BELIEVE HE WAS AN UNCLE OF OF MY GGG. GRANDFATHER.

THE RUSHWORTH NAME WAS OBVIOUSLY IMPORTANT AS IT WAS CARRIED BACK SEVERAL GENERATIONS.

MY T R.WARD BECAME A SCHOOLMASTER AT PAINSWICK AND MARRIED SARAH FISHER FROM NEARBY WOODCHESTER.THEIR SECOND CHILD WAS JOSEPH HILL WARD WHO EMIGRATED TO AUSTRALIA AND MARRIED ELIZA FRANCES LARKEN.

ANY INFORMATION WILL
BE GRATEFULLY RECIEVED. JUSTMIM.
