Ward Genealogy & History

Ward, a thousand-year-old English and Irish name, has several derivations. In Old English, "weard" means guard and "werd" means marsh; le Ward was a watchman, while de la Ward lived near a fen. Irish Wards claim derivation from Gaelic "Mac an Bhaird", meaning son of the Bard. Ward genealogy includes the variations Wardman, Wordman, and Varde, with the French form Guerin. English Ward family history was located in Northampton, Irish in Galway and Donegal, and American in Virginia in 1624. The Ward motto, "comme je fus", means "as I was", and the coat of arms is one of the most ancient on record.
