WAS ANNIE WARD MURDERED

Annie Drury was born in York in 1874 and married George Ward in 1898. George was a miller from Kyme St York.
Their daughter Adelaide May Ward was born in 1899 possibly in Leeds..(she had a twin Sidney who died at birth)
Annie and Adelaide migrated to Sth Australia about 1909 (apparently George was already in Australia) Family rumour says that in 1916 Annie died in a house fire when she caught fire from a candle dripping onto her nightwear.
Rumour also says that George Ward was deported back to England soon after---maybe murder?---Adelaide was my grandmother and she married Harold Ethelbert James Skinner in 1919. I am so stuck trying to find info about this

LOOKING FOR GEORGE WARD BORN 1868 LEEDS

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]

LOOKING FOR WARD,DRURY,HOBMAN of YORKSHIRE & SKINNER from Kent

Adelaide Ward born 11 May 1899 in Yorkshire came to Australia from England - possibly Leeds - with her mother Anne Ward (nee Drury born 1874 in Yorkshire) in 1909. Adelaide Ward married Harold Ethelbert James Skinner (1897-1977 in Adelaide)
Anne's parents were Tom and Alma Drury. Anne Ward burnt to death in Adelaide Sth Australia about 1916.
Her husband George Ward (born 1868 at Kyme St York? but his birth was not registered until 30 Aug 1882)was deported from Australia soon after.
In the 1881 English cencus he was living at 7 Banks Yard. I think George's parents were John Ward and Elizabeth Hobman. John Ward's father was possibly Thomas Ward of Yorkshire.
