Surnames: Carroll Ward Barrington-Ward Hobson Fowler Priestley
My branch of the Carroll family is closely related (in several ways) to the Wards of Belfast who were owners of the large publishing house. My ggggrandfather, Benjamin Hobson Carroll married one of the Ward daughters, Laeticia (I believe daughter of Marcus, but I do recall a Joseph Ward in the lineup somewhere) . One son, Robert, went to the U.S. to promote Marcus Ward Ltd. greeting cards as I recall the history. Two others became Anglican priests - one in Canada and the other had a parish out west (Tombstone, AZ). Robert married Grace Caroline Priestley of Philadelphia (early 1880s) and they lived in New York (Staten Island). Their three children were Robert Fowler Ward Carroll (my grandfather), Eleanor Carroll Brunner, and John Malcolm Carroll (all deceased).

Another branch of the family emigrated (back?) to Scotland(Edinburgh) and England and changed the name to Barrington-Ward.

My question about the family was whether they were English, Irish, or Scottish. The family has always been rather vague about this.
