Mayo / WARD family, poss. Kiltimagh
« on: Wednesday 29 September 10 23:27 BST (UK)  »
Hi! I'm looking for a family called Ward, possibly in Kiltimagh area.
I have a Margaret Ward, born in Mayo c. 1831.
Her father's name was Francis Ward, labourer.

By 1851, Margaret was living in Ebenezer Street, Leeds, West Yorks. She was a domestic servant. She married William Flinn (b. Kidderminster, Worcs, 1830) on 25 Oct 1852. Their first child was born in Leeds, but then they moved back to his home in Staffordshire, where he worked as a puddler in iron forges. They moved to Wortley, Holbeck, Leeds, c. 1864. William was dead by 1881. Margaret was still living in 1891, and in the census gives her birthplace as "Kiltarmock", which I think is a misspelling of Kiltimagh. The Flinn children were:
Mary Ellen, b. 1853, Hunslet, Leeds
Walter, b.1857 West Bromwich
Margaret, b. 1860 West Bromwich
William b. 1863 West Bromwich
Annie, b. 1865 Leeds
Elizabeth, b. 1868 Leeds

I should be grateful for any information on Wards in Kiltimagh and area, especially if anyone can identify Francis and his wife.
