About Record Ward

Increase Ward and Record Wheelock resided in Marlborough, in a part that was later set off as

Northborough. His farm was by the river. It included the twenty-four acres of Abraham Williams's

house-lot, purchased from Williams by William Ward. He operated a sawmill near the spot where later

there were cotton factories. Increase Ward was town clerk in 1689, and probably earlier. His tombstone

is the oldest of the Ward stones preserved in Spring Hill Cemetery. (Source: The William Ward
