Original information came from the WARD Family Bible

Additional entries written by my mother Elsie WARD (nee MAULE)
Note: Ellen Mary WARD (nee COCKS) married Edwin Cornelius
The Hyde, Bridport
From the Southern Times, February 1895
WARD.- Feb. 11, at Dorchester, Mr Samuel Ward, for many years of The Hyde, Bridport, aged 79.
Elsie WARD (nee MAULE) said that: (a) Edwin Cornelius never knew some of his older brothers and sisters as they had gone to New Zealand before he was born. (b) That either Elizabeth or Susan had married a Mr HOUSE and emigrated to New Zealand. This now appears to have been Elizabeth. Bridport Census data: (includes Allington and Bradpole). (1891 Census shows none of the following as being in Bridport, so died/moved by then) 1841 1851 1861 1871 1881 Samuel Age 25 Cordwainer Cordwainer Gardener Gardener Matilda Age 25 Twine spinner Spinner Joseph Age 4* App. cabinet maker Thomas Age 2 Age 12 Elizabeth Age 10m Age 11 Tailoress Tailoress William Age 9 Tailor John Age 7 Tailor Susan Age 5 Servant Samuel Age 3 Errand boy Richard Age 1 Scholar Currier Priscilla Scholar Dressmaker Housekeeper Edwin Scholar Scholar Printer * Note re Joseph 1841 Census: Return shows he was with Thomas and Elizabeth COOPER that evening. Not surprising as my interpretation of Samuel's tree shows Elizabeth COOPER (nee WARD) was Samuel's sister. I especially wish to thank Bev CRABB and Vicky BRENTON-RULE for their research work into the New Zealand archives.
