George "Jock" WARD and Janet IVES (nee COVENTRY)

My grandfather, George "Jock" Ward, was born about 1883 in Kent or London, England. He married Janet Ives (nee Coventry)in Sydney, Australia about 1914 and had two sons, George and Robert Henry Ward. We are searching for the parents or any information on George "Jock" Ward as there are many George Wards born around London at this time. Not knowing parents' names makes it very difficult. Stories passed down through his two boys were that he had jumped ship in Australia but after enquiries with the Royal Navy this was disproved. The only George Ward they had listed served his time well past 1914 when our George was living in Sydney.

Janet was born in 1876 in Bermondsey, London and lived most of her life in Chelsea, London before leaving England. Her parents were Andrew Coventry and Janet Barclay. Andrew was a baker and had his own bakery in Chelsea. Both parents were born in Scotland. Janet's first husband was Herbert Claude Ives and they had a son, Herbert Coventry Ives, born in New Zealand.
