Dr. Ward was a native of Leeds. He was the second son of Mr. William Sykes Ward, solicitor, of that city, and his wife Caroline, daughter of Mr. John Bywater, also of Leeds. In 1856 he entered the Leeds Grammar School, where he received the early part of his general education. On leaving the grammar school he became a student at the Leeds School of Medicine. He then entered at Caius College, Cambridge, as a Scholar, and graduated B.A. in 1867, taking a Second Class in Natural Science. He took the degree of M.B. in 1868, and became M.D. in 1872. He also held the diplomas of M.R.C.S.Eng., and L.S.A. His education being finished, Dr. Ward became one of the house surgeons to the Sheffield Infirmary, a post which he appears to have held for about two years. He then accepted a clinical clerkship at the West Riding Asylum under the directorship of Dr. (now Sir) James Crichton Browne. At this time he contributed to the West Riding Asylum Reports a paper on the “Hypodermic Injection of Morphia in the Treatment of Insanity.” He was next appointed Assistant Medical Officer to the Warwick County Asylum, under the late Dr. Parsey, as Medical Superintendent, and here he remained for four years.
