George Ward JP (14 January 1879 – 3 December 1951) was a British Liberal Party politician and boot manufacturer.

Biography

Ward was educated at Barwell National School in Leicestershire. On 10 June 1905 he married Emily Haydon. In business Ward was a highly successful Boot and Shoe Manufacturer but he also served in local politics as a Parish, District and County Councillor, later an Alderman and as a Justice of the Peace. In 1923 he was elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Bosworth. He held the seat until the 1924 election.[1][2]

He died in Hinckley aged 72, when his address was Rosslyn, Barwell, near Leicester.[2]

Legacy

In his Will, George Ward left his former home, the Cedars to the people of Barwell, which was used as an educational establishment for a number of years, until it was vacated in 2002 due to subsidence problems.[3] After a number of years, the George Ward Community Centre was opened in the village using the money from the sale of the Cedars, and was so-named in honour of George Ward's contribution to the village.
