I am looking for any info on Bill Ward. He was a english whaler or seaman who landed at or near the Bay of Islands around 1830's, then drifted on to Tokomaru.
Only info I have is: 1865 may have fought at Waerenga a Hika after campaign on coast.
1868, Lived at Taruheru.
Wi Clark's stepmother was a daughter of Ward's.
Died Feb 10 1898 at Tokomaru Bay. Please help if you can.
