You have probably seen the obit for Arthur on Trove. No information about his parents, but says he had lived in Gulgong, moving to Cobar 12 years before his death.

Arthur's second name is Jacob and on his death certificate his father is named as Jacob and he is using the surname HUNN so I'm assuming that his father's name was Jacob HUNN.

This is only a remote possibility but there is this obit in the  Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald (Vic. : 1916 - 1918), 31 May 1918
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/129519554

MR. JACOB HUNN.
AN old and much respected resident of Lower Buckland, in the person of Mr Jacob Hunn, died in the Beechworth hospital on Wednesday of last week.  Mr Hunn, who was a single man, was 84 years of age, and an uncle of Mr Arthur Ward. He came to Australia from England with Mr Ward's father, and after living in this district for some time, left for another State. Subsequently he returned, and has resided on the Buckland ever since.


According to this website (I haven't checked this but the website seems to have good documentation) this man died from "nephritis and senile decay", and he came to Australia in 1873
http://jwilkins.net/Wilkins%20Pedigree/f975.html#P2367

Thiis man is on the Electoral rolls as being in Buckland, Victoria,  from at least 1903.

I stress there is no real evidence that this is Arthur's father but is at least just possible.

I wonder if this is the right Mary STAPLETON in 1873

Possibly your Mary HUNN reported has having pneumonia in 1902

Thank so much for all information ,
Jacob couldn’t have married as was already married in England leaving wife & 7 children . I believe he was the man that was put in prison for stealing purse ( no proof ) His nephew was Ward but I don’t think he realy knew his past . My quest was to see if Arthur could be Jacob son .

You have all been realy great cannot thank you enough .
