Two Samuel Ward puritan(scholars)?[edit]

The brother of Nathaniel Ward of the 'Massachusetts Body of Liberties' from Ipswich and Haverhill, England seems to have died in 1639.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massachusetts_Body_of_Liberties

S.E. Morison in 'Builders of the Bay Colony' says this S. Ward was excommunicated by Archbishop Laud, page 220.

On page 55, Morison talks of the Samuel Ward of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, with a separate entry in the index. The Cambridge Ward was expelled by Cromwell as he was a Royalist. Other sources for the Cambridge Ward include:

[Articles 6 and 7 note that the bishop and Savilian astronomer Seth Ward was a sizar to the Cambridge Samuel Ward]

I am not sure what to make of the second page which seems to come from:

Two Samuel Wards[edit]

Also, a Samuel Ward was invited to the Westminster Assembly of 1643:

[This S Ward is divine #20. I don't have a reference for whether the Haverhill/Ipswich S Ward died in 1639]

ODNB has two relevant Samuel Wards[edit]

The ODNB has two Samuel Wards around this time, whose biographical details are conflated within the article page as it stands:

I agree that the page needs to be split by someone familiar with the context. Dsp13 (talk) 16:29, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

I have split out the other Ward, who has a fresh article at Samuel Ward (Puritan at Ipswich). Charles Matthews (talk) 15:15, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Oh well, someone immediately moved it to Samuel Ward (minister), allowing possible confusion again. Charles Matthews (talk) 15:22, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
