red mail William Ward circa 1774 immigration to Nova Scotia
William Ward –born Yorkshire circa 1754. The sailing vessel: Two Friends; Sailed 07 March 1774; From Hull, Yorkshire, England; With 103 passengers; Bound for Fort Cumberland, Nova Scotia (Actually arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada); The vessel type is a Brigantine. It is known that William Ward; his wife Elizabeth and an infant son Moses were passengers aboard the Two Friends. They apparently sailed to Nova Scotia, ‘to seek a better living’. Some documents state that William Ward’s rent had been raised by the landowner and thus weighed heavily in the decision to immigrate to North America. Politically, the Crown needed loyal subjects to settle the colony after its relatively recent acquirement from the French. A further, political upheaval brewed in the southern colonies, which would lead to the formation of the United States of America. The Yorkshire immigration of this period can be argued to be instrumental in Nova Scotia’s residents’ decision to remain loyal to the Crown. One might suggest that if the demographics of the colony had not been changed from the significant French population, remaining after the infamous Acadian Expulsion, then the Nova Scotia colony would have been lost to the USA. Nova Scotia could even have reverted to French ownership with the help of a grateful USA alliance with the French Crown. One researcher suggests William Ward married Elizabeth nee Grant or Flintoff in a Bilsdale Midcable parish church on 15 February 1774. A son Moses is listed as a passenger for the Two Friends. An approximate age for the child is about nine months. Would like to correspond with persons having knowledge of the above Ward family, or with persons who can give guidance in this quest.
