Luke Ward was baptised on 7th March 1779 at Belton (near Grantham) in Lincolnshire, son of William and Sarah Ward.

As an adult, Luke worked as a carpenter. From his marriage in 1805 until his death in 1844 he lived in the village of Great Hale, Lincolnshire. He had at least eight children with his wife, Ann Allam. Ann was from Great Hale and was sixteen when they married - Luke was about ten years older than her. The couple appear to have had twelve children, but only one was baptised as an infant. Most of the others were not baptised until after Luke's death, perhaps suggesting non-conformist leanings.

In the 1841 census, Luke and his family were living on South Street in Great Hale. Luke gave his place of birth as Lincolnshire. He died on 4th June 1844, aged 65. At the time of his death his youngest child, Edward, was only 13. Luke's widow Ann continued to live at South Street. She outlived him by nearly thirteen years and died in 1857.
