     Florence Amelia Ward was born on 9 January 1869 at High St, St Kilda, Victoria, Australia. She was the daughter of Thomas Ward and Jane Little.
Florence is said to have come from a Quaker family. She was good at sewing and crafts. She did tatting, bobbin lace, drawn threadwork, tapestry and richelieu work amongst other things. She played the piano and there exists sheet music with her name on them. Julitha has her Victorian jewellery box and several items of jewellery. She was well educated. A book, Alfred Lord Tennyson's complete works, is inscribed with her name and dated 1896. It contains the course outline for a Melbourne University Extension School programme on Tennyson which she must have attended.
In 1901 Florence Amelia Ward lived at 609 Murray Street, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.
Florence Amelia Ward married George McKay, son of Duncan McKay and Ann Hall, on 5 February 1901 at The Presbyterian Church, Havelock St, West Perth, Western Australia, Australia. Witnesses: Norman Sinclair Ward and Clara L Ward.1
Both of Florence Ward's parents were deceased when she was married.
It is not known how George and Florence came to be in Western Australia given that their origins were in Victoria. The gold boom may have brought George to Western Australia in banking. George McKay and the WARD family were at Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie and the goldfields at the turn of the century.
George and Florence were foundation members of the Christian Science Church in Western Australia. The first Sunday service was held on 9.2.1908 in a small dressmaker's room in Hay St. Rose OCKLEY (who George married after Florence died) was also in this group. George become a second reader, first reader and finally a trustee of the Church. He bid for, and bought the block of land in St George's Place (near the Barrack's Arch) where the Church was built in 1939.
Florence Amelia Ward died on 14 May 1909 at Perth, Western Australia, Australia, at age 40.2,3
Florence died of TB although the family was told it was the flu because of the stigma associated with TB (consumption). Daughter Valmai died one month later and was buried in the same grave as her mother.
George McKay purchased burial plots BA 69,70 for himself and Florence. The cost was 3 pounds 3 shillings. He was living at 39 Outrim St, Perth at the time.
The following death notice appeared in the Western Mail on the 22 May 1909:

Frances Margaret Ward

FatherEdwin Ward b. c 1840
MotherMary (?) b. 1841, d. 22 Sep 1867
Frances Margaret Brown (nee Ward) c1918
     Frances Margaret Ward was born circa 1863 at India; death certificate has place of birth as Raja Mahore, India. The birth certificate of her son Hugh Toronto has something different. She was the daughter of Edwin Ward and Mary (?)
A baptism record for Frances has not been found. Her year and place of birth come from her death certificate. At the time of her marriage on 22 Dec 1879 she was residing in Assensole, India and her age was 17 years. Only her father Edwin (no occupation given) and her sister Catherine are named on the marriage certificate.
On Hugh Toronto (Philip) Brown's birth certificate, Frances Margaret Brown (the mother) has her place of birth recorded as Raja....(?), India. Could it be Rajarbagan near Howrah? All this needs further investigation.
In 1879 Frances Margaret Ward and Hugh Brown lived at Asansole, India.
Frances Margaret Ward married Hugh Brown, son of John Hone Brown and Margaret McMillan, on 22 December 1879 at St John's Church, Calcutta, India, witnesses were E Ward, Catherine Ward and E Hindhaugh.1
The family moved from NSW to Western Australia c1900.2
Frances Margaret Ward was a witness: Hugh Philip Brown's wife Eva reported that c1913 (when child Hugh was a baby) that there were family meetings concerning the Ward family. Hugh Philip Brown would go off to see his family and tell her "it was none of her business". This was possibly concerning Hugh's mother's sister, Jane Mary Skelton (nee Ward) whose husband mysteriously left her on 2 September 1914 and disappeared. He withdrew all his money from their bank accounts but mailed her a bank book with 150 pounds deposited for her. She received no further communication from him and the courts finally pronounced him dead in 1927. The family meetings may have been about helping Jane, either financially or in some other way. Interestingly, Jane died in Toronto, NSW in 1947 which was Hugh Philip Brown's birthplace in 1891.
In July 1914 Frances Margaret Ward lived at Kenny St, West Guildford, Western Australia, Australia.3
Frances was referred to as "Nurse Brown" in the funeral notice for her daughter Florence Mabel Brown:
VAUGHAN.-Tho Friends of Nurse Brown, of Kenny-street, West Guildford, are respect fully invited to follow the remains of her late daughter, Florence Mabel, to the place of interment, the Anglican Cemetery, Karrakatta. The Funeral is appointed to leave Messrs. Bowra and O'Dea's Private Mortuary, 195 Pier-street. Perth, at 9.45 o'clock TO-MORROW (Wednesday) MORNING. per road. Friends wishing to attend the Funeral may proceed by the 10.30 train leaving Perth. BOWRA and O'DEA, Undertakers, 195
Pier-street, Perth. Tel. 308.3

Hugh and Frances Brown never divorced but did not live together. Frances lived in the house in Mt Lawley and Hugh lived on a boat on the river. He used to caretake boats for a shipping company (torpedo boats, fair sized, wooden, moored near the Raffles Hotel). Frances parents had not sanctioned the marriage and she would have left after a couple of years but had a child and no options. Hugh was also considered to be a bit of a drinker. His behaviour, combined with that of his son Leonard Percival, was why his other son Hugh Philip Brown was a fervent teetotaller.
Frances Margaret Ward died on 7 September 1934 at 109 Third Avenue, Mt Lawley, Western Australia, Australia. She died of senility and myocardial degeneration cardiac failure. Age given as 70 years.2
Frances Margaret Ward was buried on 7 September 1934 at Anglican section, Karrakatta cemetery, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.2
Death notices that appeared in the newspaper for Frances Margaret Brown can be seen by clicking here.
Frances Brown's death certificate states that she lived in NSW for 20 years and Western Australia 34 years.

Jane Mary Ward

b. circa 1866, d. 26 February 1947
FatherEdwin Ward b. c 1840
MotherMary (?) b. 1841, d. 22 Sep 1867
     Jane Mary Ward was born circa 1866 at India. She was the daughter of Edwin Ward and Mary (?)
Jane's death certificate confirms that her father was Edwin Ward, Engineer. It states she was born in India and had spent 55 years in NSW.
She died in 1947 at age 87 years which would put her birth c1860. However, the death certificate also says that she married at age 16 years, which would put her birth c1866 if her marriage was in 1882. Her sister Frances married in 1879 at age 17 years, so Jane Mary is likely to be born after Frances.1
