Origins of Surname Name
As the surname of barons and nobles, Ward(e) is one of the popular names that was brought to England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. There are two different ethnic lines of Wards; one being Germanic and the other being Celtic. The Olde English name comes from the etymology of the words “weard” meaning “watchman or guard” or “werd” meaning “marsh.” and from the Proto-Germanic “wardaz” also meaning “guard.”
It is an extremely common surname: the London Directory of 1852 recorded 187 traders bearing this surname. It is the termination of numerous other surnames including Hayward, Aylward, Durward, Milward, and Woodward. Another author notes that the name is most commonly found in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Leicester, Rutland, Nutts, Derby, Stafford, Warwick, Cambridge, and Northampton.
The earliest records found including the Domesday Book (1086), the honor roll of the Battle of Abbey, the Pipe Rolls, the Falaise Roll tax records to church and local parish records point to some of the earliest recorded notes of the ancient name. Being recorded in the Domesday Book gives this surname great prestige and honor.
One of the earliest and most prominent family of Ward was found in Northampton, England in 1130 for Osbert de Varde who was descended from Fouques de Vardes of Normandy. Fouques’ descendant, Simon Ward, was the Governor or Pontefract Castle in 1324. This leading family was raised to the peerage as Barons Dudley and Viscounts Bangor and reassumed the title of Baron Ward, which had become extinct with Simon. In addition, there was William Ward who is found in the 1194 Pipe Rolls of the city of York and Walter de la Ward of Oxfordshire who was found in the Pipe Rolls of Leicestershire in 1273.
Less is known about Irish Ward family except that the name originated from the Gaelic “Man an Bhaird” or the “son of a poet” which was anglicized into McWard after Oliver Cromwell had taken control of Ireland in the 17th century. The family was concentrated in County Galway and Donegal where generations of Ward poets lived. In Ireland, the first known Ward was Maelish Macaward who was a bishop in Conflert, County Galway in 1179. In Scotland, John de Warde is found in the records in 1376.
When the English migrated to Ireland they brought their Protestant religion with them and were given lands that were owned by the Irish. Thus the root of generations upon generations of the Irish raising up against England in their desire for Home Rule began. These people settled in Wexford, Dublin and Bangor Castle in County Down.
Because Ward is an English surname of the British Empire, it follows that the name migrated to its territories and colonies of Scotland, Ireland, America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and India. Its variations include Ward, Warde and Varde. In Ireland, variations included Macanward, MacAward, MacEvard, MacEward, McWard and M’Ward. Later “Mac or Mc” was dropped. In addition, the Jewish surnames of Warshawski and Warshawsky were angelized to Ward. Also, Ward is used as a given name to a male child.
The first Ward was John Ward of Virginia who arrived in 1624. Andrew Ward, who claimed that he was descended from Osbert, arrived in Massachusetts about 1630 and then went on to be one of the founders of Wethersfield and Stamford, Connecticut. He served as the Colonial Commissioner of the state of Connecticut.
The history of one of the earliest Ward settlers in the U.S. colonies is outlined in the book “The William Ward Genealogy: The History of the Descendants of William Ward of Sudbury, MA, 1639-1925.” William Ward(e) was born in England about 1603 and emigrated to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1638. In early documents his name was spelled as both Ward and Warde, but as time went on the “e” was dropped.
The majority of these Ward people were farmers, however of the 10,746 descendants listed there were 396 college graduates with 56 of them from Harvard University. There were also 59 members of governmental representatives including senators, state and national legislators, not to mention 22 judges and the roles of men and women who fought in every conflict or war, including the American Revolution, as dedicated soldiers and patriots, over the generations.
The Ward name is also significant in Native American history in the U.S. originating with Nancy Ward (1738-1822) as found in “Ward Family History Record of the Eastern Cherokee Indian Tribe.” Nancy is famous for being a Cherokee Indian woman who saved the white settlers by alerting them to a pending Indian attack during the American Revolution. Nancy’s daughter, Betsy, married General Joseph Martin who was the first Indian agent in the state of Tennessee.
The Cherokees are a matrilineal tribe meaning their lineage is traced through the mother’s side of the family. The Indian woman had control over her life. As such, Nancy was also a part of the Cherokee governing system where she would sit on councils and be a part of the decision-making process.
