Hello,

There's a possible chance we may be related in some way.

Down my family line there are may Wards and we also live in Essex.

Other last names you could be familiar with if we share some of the same family are: Palmer, Taylor, Gibbs.
That sounds interesting it's a big family  I don't recognise the names, but it is worth investigating

Yes, the project: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:England may be the site for you to view your "Ward" family or indeed add to the bank of profiles. Why not introduce yourself to the project?
