John B WARD master of ship Canada 1810 where born married ,died
« on: Tuesday 11 June 19 00:12 BST (UK) »
Mr JOHN. B. WARD was master of the Canada for five years doing only one convict trip 1810
Any clues where Mr John B Ward was Born???
 
The Canada was built in North Shields and owned by Rieve and Green. She brought convicts to Australia in 1801, 1810,
The Canada departed Port Jackson bound for China on 12th November 1810 and returned to Australia with convicts in 1815.
Could Captain John B Ward have been a contracted Captain for that voyage as we just cannot find his birth,marriage or death
Any help
Kind Regards
Rick

Appears your fella may have been here in 1812.

Thankyou, Captain John B Ward is our mystery man only on the ship Canada for 5 years..Really need his birth, Marriage or death...To be only on the ship for 5 years and a female convict ship makes me wonder if he was a Navy captain contracted for the 5 years.
Thanks again Rick in Tasmania

Thankyou again....Sadly the only clue is being the Captain of the female convict ship Canada.
and No I do not know what the B stands for.
I imagine that there were many John Ward's so was called John B Ward to avoid getting mixed up.
I'll check your link....Thanks again
Rick

Have you any idea which port CANADA was registered at? Also do you have her tonnage?
