and Anne STAMP (1651-1731)
Mr. John Ward
married on 29 January 1679/80 in Boxgrove,
Sussex. They raised their family in West Grinstead, Sussex.
(They were not my direct ancestors.)
John Ward's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.
He may have been buried on 19 June 1719 in West Grinstead. The burial
register records that he was John Ward, gent of Champions.
Might he have been baptised on 10 April 1652 in Cowfold and have been the
son of Thomas Ward
Anne Stemp was baptised on 26 December 1651 in Boxgrove. She
was the daughter of Thomas Stemp and Mary. She
was buried on 30 March 1731 in West Grinstead. The burial register
records that Ann Ward was a widow from Champions.
My probable 7x Great Grandfather, Joseph Ward, married in 1710 and
raised his family in Henfield, Sussex. Henfield and West Grinstead
border one another. I would guess he was born in the 1680's, but he
was not baptised in Henfield, nor would he seem to be part of this West
