Now that is looking more promising, just for the records the marriage of John Ward and Elizabeth Hudson took place at Doncaster St George 7 Dec 1830, by licence, grooms parish Dronfield (source freereg). Maybe if you can find Elizabeth?

Have a search of the 1841 census for John and Elizabeth Ward in Dronfield, there is one family who have a son named Thomas Hudson Ward so it might just be that both John & Elizabeth were around still! However there is an older John Ward (1791) with them - worth ruling out.

Hi there,

You will not know me at all. You have a photo and that photo is off my uncle, called Jack Richard Thorpe. I know this because my dad was called Leslie Thorpe who has recently died. Iv lost all well, nearly all connection to my fathers family. I know live in West Yorkshire. Funny I came across this because I too have been looking into the family history and going far back if I can to the plantagents. Iv got some stuff which was given to me by Betty Thorpe and thought I would retrace a bit of Thorpe history and of course my mothers as well. Small world.

Kind Regards

Marie Heeley
