Trying to find Ward

Barrie Report 2 Mar 2003 16:05

My Grandfather Thomas Baxfield Ward married Sarah Elizabeth Lowth in the 1800s. They had 5 children, Frederick, Ernest Edward (my father), Sarah Elizabeth, Alice and George. They were all born c1890 onwards. My father married Ivy Hastings and they produced my sisters Vera b1925, Barbara b1928 d1995,and myself, Barrie Edward b1942. The family originated from Ireland and came to England at the time of the potato famine. I have never met any relation of my father. I would dearly like to make contact.
