Maryann Steadman was born about 1847. She passed away about 1916.
In 1871  we find John living with his wife Maryann in Bures, Suffolk, England, along with their daughter Priscilla then age 2 years, putting her birth year about 1896. John's occupation is listed as Agricultural Labourer.
In 1881  we find John and Maryann living in Ardleigh, Essex, England with their children Priscilla age 12, (again putting her birth year about 1869), Frederick age 7, Adelaide age 4 and William age 1. John's occupation listed as AG Lab, a common short form for Agricultural Labourer.
These census are important to note as in 1891  we then find Priscilla, age 22 (born in Bures, Suffolk, England, birth year about 1869) living with her husband Joseph Isom in Colchester, St. Giles, Essesx, England along with their son Robert age 5 and Priscilla's sister Adelaide age 13.
From this we can conclude that Priscilla Ward's parents were John and Maryann (Stedman) Ward , not William and Mary A. Ward as some have come to believe. Taking a look at the 1871 England census William and Mary A. Ward did have a daughter named Priscilla age 2, they also had an older son Thomas age 4. This family lived in Yorkshire, England and the census lists Priscilla as being born in in Kelleo, Durham, England. In the 1881 England census  William Ward's family is still living in Yorkshire, England they now have 7 children at home Thomas (14), Priscilla (12), William(9), John (7), Elizabeth (3) and Sarah Mary (no age listed). There is no Adelaide listed as a child for William and Mary A. Ward. Interestingly enough in the 1891 England census  Elizabeth A. Ward is still living with William and Mary A Ward at the age of 13, in Yorkshire, England
