Origin of the Name Ward

The ancient history of the name Ward was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of Ward include McWard, Warde, Wardman, Wordman, Wards and Warder. This name is of Celtic origin and is popular throughout England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in the above islands. Examples of such are a Robert le Warde, County Oxfordshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls' , England, in the year 1273 and a John de Ward was a tenant of the Earl of Douglas, in the Barony of Kilbucho, Scotland, in the year 1376. In Ireland they were professional and hereditary bards, one family being attached to the O'Donnells of Tirconnel and the other to the O'Kellys of Ui Maine. The latters territory was around the village that bears their name, Ballymacward and the former around the village of Lettermacaward. Like so many Gaelic families the Wards are still to be found near their original homeland to the present day.
The Ward coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Ward descendants.
