    Notes 
    • Samuel was representative 1679 and 1680. His will of 22 May 1727, nearly 2 years before his death was dispututed by the heirs on account of most of the estate being give to his son Samuel.

      From the Ward Genealogy:
      “Samuel’s house-lot (by reversion from his brother Richard) was west of the Indian line, and probably near the old John Gleason place. ...
      “Under him, succeeding his father, the original ‘William Ward’ house (i.e., the remaining structure on the original site) was frequently the place of the midweek church meetings and also the recognized abode of visiting and temporary ministers. During the intermittent French and Indian wars from 1689 to 1713, it was a garrison-house as during King Philip's War.
      “In his will dated May 22, 1727, Samuel Ward says he is ‘well stricken in years and crazy in body, but of perfect mind, and memory.’ His will was contested in Probate Court, December 19, 1729, by all his children and heirs texcept his son Samuel, the chief beneficiary in virtue of a concurrent agreement to care for him and his wife durirlg their lives) on the ground that he was crazy in milld as well as in body. At length the heirs agreed among themselves touching his will, and desired the judge to approve it.” [3]
