Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates
As part of my efforts in researching Captain Thunderbolt and his Lady, I have purchased many certificates and transcribed many entries from early church records. In addition, Ward and Bugg family members have also kindly provided copies of other certificates for members of these families. I am happy to add copies of other certificates to the website, primarly those mentioned below as it time-consuming to do so. If you hold certificates and are willing to donate them, please contact me.
Marriage and death certificates for Fred and Mary Ann's siblings:
I have noted on the relevant web-pages (Michael and Sophia Ward or James and Charlotte Bugg) when important certificates have not been obtained. I have also noted if those on the website are poor copies. If family members hold copies of "not obtained" certificates or can replace poor copies, it would help other Ward and Bugg researchers.
Birth certificates for Fred and Mary Ann's nephews and nieces:
These help pinpoint where Fred and Mary Ann's siblings were living, both during the Thunderbolt years and afterwards.
Birth, marriage and death certificates for all of Mary Ann Bugg's children and grandchildren:
Descendants tracing their family history may come across information about Mary Ann's offspring that helps build up a picture of her own life in the post-Thunderbolt years. This could help others determine their descent from Mary Ann as well.
Birth and marriage references for Fred and Mary Ann's parents:
No birth or marriage details have been found for Fred's parents, Michael and Sophia Ward (see Timeline: Michael and Sophia Ward and their family) so if anyone finds possible details it would be useful to add these. Bugg family members have details (photocopies, perhaps?) of birth/baptism information for James Bugg. It would be great to add copies to the website.
