John Henry WARD [Parents] [scrapbook]-W0401 # was born 1 on 12 Jun 1874 in Lincoln, Lincolnshire. He was christened on 12 Jul 1874 in All Saints Churchyard, Nettleham, Lincoln. He died after 1950. John married 2 Grace BATES-B0403 # on 24 Oct 1894 in Wirksworth, Derbyshire.

John was counted in a census on 03 Apr 1881 in Main Street, Middleton by Wirksworth, Derbyshire. He was described as Step-son aged 6 years, a Scholar. He was counted in a census on 05 Apr 1891 in Main Street, Middleton, Derbyshire. He was described as Step-son, aged 16 years, working as a Blacksmith. He was counted in a census on 31 Mar 1901 in 84, Nursery Street, Brightside, Sheffield, Yorkshire. He was described as Head of family, married, aged 26 years, working as a Crane Driver. He was counted in a census on 02 Apr 1911 in 3, Cross Gilpin Street, Sheffield, West Yorkshire. He was described as Head of Family, married, aged 36 years and working as a Crane Driver (Steam) in a Steel Works.

John Henry and his wife Grace are shown in the Electoral Registers as living at 20, Carrfield Road, Sheffield in 1920 and 1924. However, by 1928 Grace had left (said to have 'run off' with the Coalman). In 1930 John Henry is still at that address but is joined by a Florence Taylor. They were no longer at that address in 1932.

In the 1939 register, John Henry was living at 17, Brickfields in Sheffield and working as a Steam Crane driver. The only other person at that address was an Emma Ward (b. 06 Jun 1875, so a similar age). They were both recorded as 'married'. Curiously, Emma's surname was changed to Mead in the register on the 2nd Apr 1947 (there is a marriage in 1Q1947 in Sheffield between Sarah E Ward and Samuel J Mead). There is a marriage in Wakefield in 3Q1936 between a John H Ward and Sarah Griffiths and one in Doncaster in 4Q1934 between a John Ward and Emma Evans - both places are around 25 miles from Sheffield.

Florence Barton (nee Jackson - J0206) remembers visiting John Henry Ward (her grandfather) in the the early 1950's. He was living with another woman. Florence doesn't remember where it was but thinks it was in the Derby or Sheffield area.

Grace BATES [Parents] [scrapbook]-B0403 # was born on 10 Feb 1875 in Fleetwood, Lancashire. Grace married 1 John Henry WARD-W0401 # on 24 Oct 1894 in Wirksworth, Derbyshire.

Grace was counted in a census on 03 Apr 1881 in the 26th Infantry Brigade Depot, Normanton, Derby, Derbyshire. She was described as Daughter aged 7 years, a Scholar. She was counted in a census on 05 Apr 1891 in 4, Market Place, Wirksworth. She was described as Domestic Servant, unmarried, aged 16 years. She was counted in a census on 31 Mar 1901 in 84 Nursery Street, Brightside, Sheffield, Yorkshire. She was described as Wife aged 26 years. She was counted in a census on 02 Apr 1911 in 3, Cross Gilpin Street, Sheffield, West Yorkshire. She was described as Wife, aged 36 years. Married for 17 years and given birth to 2 children, both still living.

MISCELLANEOUS:
In a conversation with Florence Barton (JACKSON - J0206) in Feb 2003, I was told that Grace left her husband and 'ran off' with the local Coalyard Owner!! She thinks that Grace had a baby by him but, as an infant, it was crushed by a steam roller during a religious demonstration/march. Such an event must have been reported in the newspapers but with no idea of the date, it would be a long slog to find it.

The Electoral Registers show that Grace was still living with John Henry in 1924 but was not there in 1928. Unfortunately the 1925-27 registers were not available at the time this was researched.

They had the following children.

In the 1911 census, Sarah is recorded as having had 11 children in her present marriage, of which 4 died. I have found 9 for this marriage (of which 2 are known to have died) and 2 in her previous marriage. Perhaps they misunderstood the question.

In 1907, Richard became the Licensee of the The Blacks Head pub in West End, Wirksworth. When he died, his son-in-law John McCreery took over the license.

This was a  league of both sexes among the Conservatives, founded in 1883. So called because primrose was (erroneously, it is said) taken to be the favorite flower of the Conservative statesman Benjamin Disraeli, Earl of Beaconsfield.

They had the following children.

Two of these were in India but of the other 8 children, evidence has been found of their survival beyond 1911, only Susan cannot be found, so it seems probable that she died before 1911. However, no death record or marriage record has been found yet.

A date of 08 Jan 1862 has been used but may not be correct. The deaths of Mary and Charles have not yet been found. It's possible that the 1939 register entry is not the correct one but it looked right with his occupation, ages and location.
