Sorry, this is not the same Hugh Ward. They could be related in some way but I don't know how. Wish I could help you.

I'm not sure this is the same branch, but Theophilus Ward seems to have been born in the Neuse River, NC area in or about 1745. He moved to the Darlington Co. SC area and had many children including my ancestor Simon. If this sounds correct to you please respond.

I am very interested in any info you have for Wards from Scotland
I have a brick wall in front of me before my ancestor Benjamin Ward
In Orange county, N.C. I have him as being born in 1795, and dying after 1860.
We may have a match here, but If not, I'll keep my eyes open for you.

Bradley,
There is a book called Valley of the Scots by Malcolm Fowler. In Chapt. 4 of the book, he talks about a group of Scots that came over from Scotland in 1739 and formed the Argyll Colony. Two of the 350 passengers were Hugh and Miles Ward. Also,in the Directory of Scots in the Carolinas from 1680 to 1830 Hugh and Miles Ward are listed as emigrating from Scotland to Brunswick, NC during September 1739.
I have been told by family that ancestors came in thru North Carolina then to South Carolina and eventually ended up in Texas.
I have been able to get back to my ggggrandfather Isaac Ward who was born somewhere in South Carolina. I think that Hugh Ward may be my ancestor since there are a lot of Hugh Wards in my family. However, I have not been able to make the connection between Isaac Ward and Hugh Ward. There are a couple of generations missing.
Also, I have found in the Scottish Church Records that a Hugh (Hewgh) Ward was Christened on Jan 16, 1704 at St. Andrews, Orkney, Scotland. His father is David Ward. I don't know if this is the same Hugh Ward that came to NC, however, the age is about right.
I don't know if this will help you any. I would like to know if you are of the same Ward linage. I have a lot of information on the Wards but have also run into a brick wall in the Carolinas. There are so many Wards in that area that it gets very confusing trying to trace a family. I spent a week in the Carolinas several years ago and found the information listed above, and that is as far as I have been able to get.
I would appreciate any information you may have in regards to the Wards.
Thanks,
Peggy Little

Where exactly is that town in NC? What county I mean. There
are many counties making "Heritage of __ county"
books, and it can make our search easier. I have
most of my Wards in Randolph, Guilford, and perhaps some in Orange
county. My ancestors settled here in the piedmont area, then some went to
the mountains, namely Henderson county,
then returned back to Randolph, and their roots.
Hopefully we can knock down that wall. If not,
maybe we should start a NC Wards Message Board. I'm sure there
are others that would benifit from sorting out all the
Wards in NC. If you want, you can also e-mail me
about the Ward line, and I can send you text
file versions of my genealogy printouts on my Ward line.
Here's hoping!

The counties mentioned in the article are Hanover, Bladen, and Cumberland. However, somewhere, I have maps of North Carolina in the 1700's and the counties have changed a great deal. I hope to get a scanner soon so I can send some of this information to you. It would be great if we could make a connection with all of these Wards in N.C. and in S.C. I will keep looking for my N.C. county maps in the 1700s.
Hope this helps you.

Cumberland sounds like it might fit in. After all, my Wards were in the NC mountains for awhile..
Let's see about that first.
