Edwin Henry Ward was a member of the illustrious Ward family of taxidermists. The first reference to Henry Ward was when he boarded the ship Columbia off Portsmouth on 31 July 1831 when he set sail for North America with Lucy and John James Audubon. As a teenager, Henry was already a skilled taxidermist, his ability being appreciated by the bird author John James Audubon. On his return from the USA, Henry established a business in London at a time when owning mounted birds became fashionable.
