Foards/Fords arroved in early in Jamestown - First Charles who begat Charles (m/Mary Fluud/Flood who later married John Washington a distant cousin of George's ancestors)and Edward. Joseph Ford appears to be a related to Charles. Later Edward is found in late 1600s in Old stafford Co VA with kinsman Dicke. It appears that it is this Edward that marries Elizabeth Allison in Charles Co, MD. and inherits her father's property in Christian Temple in Charles Co. Note that the Ratcliffs and Poseys, other kinsman to the Fords also live in Charles County.Note that Edward and Elizabeth Ford have one son Charles Allison Ford and a daughter Postuma Ford (born after her father's death).Note that other Fords comethrough Charles County - seem to be realated (Thomas Ford of Prince William (marries Jane Milstead of Charles Co), father is John Ford (Prince William) , grandfather is John Ford (Richmond Co) and greatgrandfather is John Ford of Old Rappahanock Co (ferryman). Fords and Poseys have a tied with Coe family and Ann Ford daughter of Thomas Ford marries John Posey and they with her brother John T. Fords Sr move to the Spartanburg South Carolina on the Tiger River.
William Ford comes from Talbot through Charles County and settled in Old Stafford County before his family moves later to Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois. In Livingston, KY, Jesse Ford of this group meets up with his family James, and son Philip Ford from SC. James Ford was descended (son) from Phlip Ford (son of Capt. James Ford who had moved from Prince George, MD to Spartanburg area). Philip Ford had married Elizabeth Ford, daughter of John T. Ford Sr who had moved to Spartanburg area from Fairfax, VA (John TFord was the son of Thomas and Jane Milstead Ford.)
Now who is Henry Foard? Mr. Thomas Cheetwood received 100 acres on the south side of the Rappahnock River (comment right below the John Ford Ferry) for transporting 40 persons: 23 Negros, and John Martin (related to Fords), George Tree, Thomas Bochen, Richrad Moore (Moores related to Fords), Frances BOurne, Robert Teexwell, Henry Fords, Randall Morris (Randall family in Md is related to Fords), Abrah Snow (Snows were in NVA, MD, and SC with Fords), Jno Green (Greens were in NVA, MD, SC, and WNC with Fords and are buried in Old Thickety Cemetary in Haywood Co, w/descendents of John T. Ford Sr of Spartanburg, SC and Haywood/Buncombe, NC (son of Philip/Elizabeth Ford, Grandson of Capt. James Ford SR and John T. Ford, Sr.),
Thomas Prior, Robert Howe, Jno Aires, Rebecca Ebnott, Thomasin Haines (Haynes married into Fords in WNC and traveled/lived w/them in VA, MD, SC, and WNC, and bought the farm of John T. Ford Sr in Haywood Co, NC on Old Thickety Rd), Rebecca Pattison, Elizabeth Growndy.
I would think that Henry Ford/Foard was a kinsman of Charles/Edward/Joseph/John/Thomas/William/Richard/Samuel Ford of early VA and MD. My greatgrandfather was George Ford and grandson of John T. Ford Sr of NC. John T. Ford Sr also had a son named george T. Ford. John Ford of Richmond Co remarried and one of his children from the second marriage was named George FOrd.Perhaps this helps.
