Excerpt from Conquering Forces of the Kingdom: And Other Sermons
Wyche, was a member of an old and respected Virginia family. For centuries the name Seth appears in the history of the Ward family. The father of the Bishop, Samuel Goode Ward, was himself the son of Seth Ward and Martha Nor vell Ward, daughter of William Norvell, of Lynchburg, Va. The Bishop's grandfather was the son of Seth Ward and Mary Goode ward; and he was the son of Col. Seth Ward, Justice of Henrico County in I745 and of Chesterfield in 1749, and later Sheriff of Chesterfield and a member of the House of Burgesses. From him the line ascends thus: Benjamin Ward, Capt. Seth Ward, Richard Ward, Seth Ward, the founder of the family in America, who is shown by the records to have secured a piece of land in Henrico County, Va., May 30, 1634. He was certainly related to Bishop Seth Ward, of the Church of England, being probably not a Son, but a nephew.
