This page represents the second marriage of William Ward. He is said to have emigrated to New England with his second wife Elizabeth and five children. Language in his 1686 will provides evidence that these first five were children by his first wife. Therefore, children #6 through #13 are those attached to THIS family.

There are also multiplate candidates for the name of his second wife. Please use this talk page to discuss available evidence for her name.

    However, there is no evidence to connect this William Ward with he who emigrated to New England and was one of the first settlers of Sudbury and then Marlborough, MA. That said, the estimated birth years of his oldest children would fit with such a marriage-- but for William's FIRST wife, not his second!
