                                                                                           Butcher of Bath, Somerset formerly of Wiltshire
                                                                                                            Spouse: Ann Angus Millard
                                                                        [1800-1858]

                     1799 Birth:   Joseph Scard was born 1799 in Heytesbury, Wiltshire [1851 Census] [3 miles of Warminster].   

                                           Joseph's Family's fragmented trail leads from his cradle near Warminster, Wiltshire to settle 12 miles North
                                           near Bath, Somerset  where Josiah and several other Scard Family members thought to be his siblings or close
                                           kin were recorded in the adjacent areas of Walcot and Lycombe [1 mile of Bath].

                                           There is some tenuous evidence to suggest that Joseph could be the grandson of Thomas Scard, Yeoman of Mere
                                            and his 1st wife Jane nee Lawrence of Wiltshire, by one of his younger sons. This family being resident at 
                                           Warminster for two generations.

                                                        Fragments imply that Joshia was likely descended from this Family  See Wiltshire Scard Family.
