I am also searching for the father of William John Gard. I have the birth and marriage certifiates for Elizabeth Gard, born Jun 10, 1846 at Poplar. Her parents were also listed as William John Gard and Mary Ann Pasmore. She married James Manton on May 31, 1868 in Deptford. William John Gard was one of the witness's and signed the cert. Please feel free to contact me off list if you want to.
