NOTE.

  [i] Seth (1) Ward, the patentee, was probably a kinsman of Bishop Seth Ward; but was certainly not his son. He married -, and had a son, Richard (2) Ward, of Henrico, who was a justice of that county in 1666, married Elizabeth --, and died In 1682, having Issue; I. Captain Seth (3), of "Sheffield," on James river (in the present Chesterfield), where he was living in 1691. He was born in 1661, end married ------; II. Richard (3), married Sarah Blackman, and had at least one son, Richard (4), who removed to Cataret county, N. C., in or before 1746; III. Edward (3), married -, daughter of Gilbert Elam, Sr.; IV. John (3), married Hannah -----; V. Elizabeth (3).

  Captain Seth (3) and (-) Ward had issue: 1. Benjamin (4), "of Sheffield" married Anne (Anderson) daughter of Henry Anderson, and died in 1732; II, Seth (4), married Martha, daughter of Captain John Worsbarn, and died 1734.

 Issue of Benjamin* and Anne (Anderson) Ward; I. Col. Seth (5), of "Sheffield," and "Wintopock," justice of Henrico, 1745, of Chesterfield, 1749, sheriff of Chesterfield and member of the House of Burgesses for that county; married -, and died about 1769; II.

  Issue of Benjamin (6) and Mary {-) Ward: 1. Seth (7); II. Maria (7),

born 1784. died 1826; married Peyton Randolph. She is remembered in the social tradition of Virginia aa the object of John Randolph of Roanoke's only love.

 Issue of Seth (4) and Martha (Worsham) Ward; 1. Seth (5); II. Martha (5); III. Elizabeth (5).

  [There were other members of the family in Chesterfield, whose descent I have not been able to trace. Leonard Ward, of Chesterfield, died in 1772. He mentions in his will his wife, Anne, his sister, Sarah Walker, brothers Seth, John and William Ward, sister Anne Ligon and brother Joseph.

 In Goode's "Virginia Cousins" is an account of the descendants of Seth and Mary (Goode) Ward.

 Several members of the family removed from Chesterfield and Henrico to Amelia, and for a number of years their descendants were large landholders there. William Ward, and perhaps others, removed from Amelia to Kentucky.]

WARD, Martha WARD by Josiah DILLON their guardian vs: William POWELL, Reuben POWELL, Sally POWELL, James POWELL, John POWELL, Isaac POWELL, minors and children of the said William POWELL - June term, 1823. Plaintiffs of the county of Belmont. On or about 1895 one Aaron and Timothy WARD of Belmont Co. made an agreement to purchase of the U.S. the NW 1/4 of Section 10, Township 5, Range 4 Marietta Dist....that it should be entered in the name of Aaron and he should have 100 acres on the north side and Timothy to have the 60 acres on the south of the said 1/4. Contrary to the agreement, Timothy entered to the said 1/4 section in his own name although Aaron paid the money for the first payment. On or about 1807 before further payment was made on the land Aaron died intestate leaving Jane WARD, his relict, and your petitioners his children and heirs who are all minors under the age of 21. Jane WARD was appointed administratrix of the estate of Aaron WARD and soon after Timothy transferred the certificate for the said 1/4 S, to said Jane, and Jane completed the payment from the personal estate of the said Aaron and obtained the patent in her own name, and conveyed the said land to Timothy. The said widow afterward to wit, on or about the year 1810 married said William POWELL of Belmont Co. and had by him 5 children to wit, Reuben POWELL, Sally POWELL, James POWELL, John POWELL, Isaac POWELL, who are all minors under the age of 21. The title of the above land was vested in the name of Jame until her death which took place in July, 1822, by the death of the said Jane the legal title of said 100 acres of land is now vested by laws of descent in your orators and Reuben POWELL, Sally POWELL, James POWELL, John POWELL, Isaac POWELL, children of the said Jane, deceased in coparency. Your orators further state that on the marriage of the said William Powell with the said Jane, deceased, William took possession of the said 100 acres and hath ever since continued in possession of same and received the whole rents and profits.....Orators are entitled to the whole of the said 100 acres of land as heirs at low of said Aaron WARD and to an accounting of the rents and profits by William POWELL.....William POWELL contended that the rents and profits were not sufficient to pay for the care and education of the WARD children after his marriage to their mother, said Jane, and said Jane died without making any conveyance of the said 100 acres.....it was ordered that the POWELLs upon arriving at the age of 21 make over a deed in fee simple for said premises to the said complainants.

...(My note - Hardesty's History is sometimes frustrating in mentioning things like "his grandfather Ward" without giving the first name. At least here though we do have one generation prior to this Seth Ward in that this source does give his father as Moses Ward. Now it is possible to find the next generation back in the Monroe C. Deed Records, even though some portions of the particular deed was burned - James Ward, administrator of Seth Ward, deceased to Cornelius Okey. At the Court of Common Pleas, April term, 1837 (probably in Belmont Co.)...did order James Ward, admr. of Seth Ward deceased....land S.35, T.3, R.3 ...hereby acknowledges for himself, the said James Ward, Moses Ward, Elizabeth Reed (or Weed) intermarried with Joseph Reed (or Weed), Ruth Moore intermarried with Samuel Moore, John Ward, Abigail Adams intermarried with George Adams*, Joseph Ward, Rebecca Mobley intermarried with Greenbury Mobley, Isaac Ward and Rhoda Moore inter married with Austin Moore being children and heirs at law of Seth Ward... 1837, signed by James Ward in Belmont County.)
