Re: new woodward web site with family tree
Congratulations on your website.
I am interested in two Woodward families from the Midlands.
Firstly John Woodward, born circa 1778 in Warwickshire, an innkeeper of the Bull's Head Inn,Warwick, who was twice married.His second wife was Fanny/Frances Jo(u)rdan.First wife unknown at this stage.
The other family is that of John Woodward born c. 1740 who lived in Kidderminster.He had a son Henry (bap 1792) who was a carpet manufacturer.Henry's son (bap 1827) Henry Toye Woodward was also a carpet manufacturer.The name of the business still exists in Kidderminster - Woodward Grosvenor.
John and Fanny are my ancestors - evidence would suggest the other family is connected but I do not know how as yet.
