PLUMER-WARD, OF GILSTON.



Hmeagt.



This branch of the family of Ward has
long: borne the same arms as the noble house
of Ward, Viscounts Bangor, as Seth Ward,
Bishop of Salisbury, in the time of Charles
II., as Chief-baron Sir Edward Ward, as the
Wards of Pomfret, and as John Ward of
Squirries, Kent; but nothing positive has,
as yet, been ascertained regarding its foun-
dation, prior to the year 1704, owing to the
fact of

John Ward, esq. having died in the gar-
rison of Gibraltar, where he had previously
served at the taking of that celebrated for-
tress, under Admiral Rook and the Prince of
Hesse. He left an only son, an infant, un-
der guardianship,

and who resided almost all his life in Spain.

in England in 1782, having previously es-
poused a Spanish lady, by whom he had issue,

FAMILY OF PLUMER.

The Plumers came from Old Windsor,
about the year 1660, upon acquiring Gilston
and Blakesware in Hertfordshire. Tra-
ditionally they derive from a Saxon knight,
but the pedigree in the herald's college dates
only from the time of Elizabeth, at which
period they were a family of great opulence.
In 1680, Walter Plumer was created a ba-
ronet, but the title is now extinct.

Colonel John Plumer, of Blakesware,
in the county of Hertford, M.P. for that
shire, espoused, in 1680, Mary Hale, of the
Hertfordshire family, of King's Walden,
and his eldest daughter,

Anne Plumer, m. James Hamilton, se-
venth Earl of Abercorn, by whom she had,
with other children,

James Hamilton, who succeeded as

eighth Earl of Abercorn.
John Hamilton, father of

John-James Hamilton, who inherited
as ninth earl, and was created Mar-
quess of Abercorn. His lordship
was s. at his decease, in 1818, by
his grandson,
James, present Marquess of
Abercorn.
George Hamilton, in holy orders, one
of the canons of Windsor, rector of
Taplow, and vicar of Bray, in Bucks,
m. Elizabeth, daughter of Lieutenant-
general Richard Onslow, and left,
with other issue, at his decease, in
1787,
Jane Hamilton, who espoused first,
William Plumer, esq. of Gilston
Park, forty years member of par-
liament for the county of Hert-
ford. This gentleman, no male
Plumer being then left, named
his wife sole heiress to his estates,
and she inherited accordingly at
his decease. Mrs. Plumer m.
secondly, Robert Ward, esq.
who thereupon, as already stated,
assumed the additional surname
and arms of Plumer, and is the
present Mr. Plumer-Ward.
