The complete record of this very long case is set forth under John Ward Sr. The following portion is set forth to prove that John Ward's dau. Elizabeth m Edward Millstead: "Memorandum that upon the ____day of ___1696(blanks are in the court record) came Edward Millstead an Elizabeth his wife one of the daughters of John Ward of Charles Co., deceased" by William Dent their attorney, libellants (plaintiffs) and William Sargent and Damris his wife defendants by Charles Carroll their attorney. The plaintiffs alleged that John Ward in his lifetime was possessed of a very plentiful personal estate to the full value of 200,000 ls tobacco and that on Sep 4, 1686 he made his last will and testament wherein he appointed Damaris his wife executrix, and that his will provided that after his debts and some small legacies therein mentioned were paid, the rest of is estate was for the use of the said wife Damaris for her life and after her death the whole estate be divided equally amongst his 5 children (John has more than 5 children, but only 5 are named in the will provision that is being litigated) John, Thomas and James his sons and Katherine and Elizabeth his daughters. The complaint goes on to allege that Damaris together with her subsequent husbands Charles Shephard and William Sergant, failed to file an inventory or administration account for John's estate, and have converted to her and their use and failed to protect property of the estate in violation of John's will and the lasw, to the detriment of the 5 children. The court found in favor of Elizabeth and Edward.
