About the Project

The Redward Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Redward name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Redward name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual team studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Redwards), by time period (18th Century Redwards), or by topic (Redward DNA, Redward Occupations,Redward Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Enter a personal reminiscence or story.
My grandmother Winifred Marjorie Long was born in 1898 to Edith Mary Redward and Francis William Long. They lived in Thames, New Zealand where my grandmother and her little brother Alan Redward Long were born in a house on the corner of Amy St and Bella St. Her father Frank worked as a moulder at A & G Price for 30 years. His original apprenticeship was at the Great Western Railway in Swindon, Wiltshire, England.

He married my great grandmother Edith who was a school teacher in Napier, New Zealand. Her family - father Thomas and mother Mary (born Eason) lived at Bay View Road in Ahuriri and were closely associated with the Port Sabbath school there. After her marriage Edith moved to Thames where she later became librarian of the Thames Carnegie Library.
