John WARD - Barbara


I am very new to this site, but need some help in finding my London roots,
My research is for my GREAT GT grandfather John Ward born approx. 1804.Bethnal green London. He was a silk weaver and so was his wife Elizabeth WARD...[Walker].born Bethnal green approx. 1804.

They left London in 1833/4 and came to live in NEWCASTLE UNDER LYME Staffordshire, bringing four children with them .Elizabeth Ward was pregnant when she arrived at Newcastle with her 5th child.................
my great grand father William Ward born 1834 Newcastle under Lyme .

I have a lot of information on this Ward family after they arrived here ,but know very little about there previous lives in LONDON.
I would love to be able to find John Wards birth and maybe his siblings .so I could find another link going back to Johns Roots .#any advice would be helpful and most appreciated ......Barbara
