Looking for descendants of the Ward family whose ancestor was William Ward (1603-1687) and who settled in Shaftsbury, VT then relocated to central NY...

My WARDs are descended from the early American colonist William WARD who came to America in 1639 and was a founder of both Sudbury and Marlboro, MA. This line can be traced back to Johannes WARD who was born about 1506 in Curlew, England who married Elizabeth ASHBY (1508-?) from Quenby, England.

Johannes & Elizabeth had a son named Thomas (1528-?) who married Alicia E. BARTON (1532-?) of Braunston, England in 1558. They had a son named Johannes Edward (1560-?) who married Maria HATTON of London in 1599. The above-mentioned William was the son of Johannes Edward and Maria HATTON WARD, and was born in Warrington, England in 1603 and is the great-grandfather of Artemas WARD the first Commander-in-Chief of the American Revolution.
