Seth is not the son of John & Isabel Ward of Pontefract
Seth was born about 1613. Seth Ward ... He passed away about 1711. 
This bio is only meant as a brief summary, in order to sort out some of the John Wards. Seth should be properly researched and sourced.
Because Seth Ward and John Ward are in Varina Parish at the same time, it is speculated they are brothers, or son and father. As brothers, it has been speculated they were sons of John and grandsons of Seth below. However John Ward of Varina seems to be older. If father and son, they could still be John the son of Seth and Seth the grandson of Seth, but it is still unproved speculation all around.
Seth might be the grandson of Seth Ward who died in Abbington, Cambridgeshire, England in 1598. He left a will dated February 14th, 1598 and proved June 20th 1598. Named in his will were his wife, Annis/Anne also sons: John, Enos and Thomas; daughters Marie Warde and Anne Jacob; Grandchildren: John and Seth Warde, sons of John, and Anne Ward daughter of John, and grandchildren Martha, Alice and Marie. Seth also mentioned his brother Robert Ward, and Sister Wilsonne.
Seth Ward immigrant to Varina Parish, Virginia, was born around 1613 in England. This date is pretty consistent around the internet. This date makes him definitely not the grandson of Seth of Cambridgeshire, in the speculation above, whose grandson was born before 1598.
Who is Seth Ward's mother? There is probably not one shred of evidence for either of these women.
Some sources list him as married to Katherine Smith.
It is supposed he died in Varina Parish, Henrico, Virginia, before 1677, which is the date that Varina records exist. Other dates listed on merged profiles include 1682 and September 18, 1711. Death date of 1711 seems off and probably belongs to still another Seth Ward.
Seth had a son Richard. The son Richard died in 1682 leaving a wife, four children and a will.

Also the website Ancestors of Virginia and Beyond has gathered a lot of the research together in one spot.
