Title: John WARD, Blacksmith, Sydney 1860s
Post by: ShirleyX on Wednesday 03 March 10 06:35 GMT (UK)
John Ward - mother most likely named Hannah and father James.
John was working as a blacksmith at least between 1857 and 1869. He died 13 March 1869. Lived at Kent St, Sydney.
10 June 1857 advertised for a boy to work in a blacksmith's shop, Flour Company's Wharf,
1863 business listed in Kent St.

Does anyone know this family. Looking for records of his business. Did he employ a young lad named John Manners (aged 14) between June 1857 and 1865, when he advertised again for a lad, presuming John Manners had completed his seven years training.
