Ward, George Henry -1849)

George Henry Ward of Northwood Park, Cowes, Isle of Wight was the eldest son of George Ward, of Northwood Park, a successful merchant of London, and Mary, daughter of Thomas Woodfall. He inherited his father’s estate in 1829. He married his cousin, Mary, daughter of William Saunders M.D., Physician to the Prince Regent. They had no children and the estate passed to his nephew, William George Ward. The arms now used by Ward of Northwood Park are Azure a cross or, in the dexter chief point a key erect and in the sinister chief point an anchor erect, but this is a recent grant. Formerly they used Azure a cross moline, as Burke's General Armory testifies.
