On the night of Friday 28th November 1834 Mr. Ward was returning from Ely on the outside of the Nelson day coach, when his hat blew off. He elected to alight from the coach to collect his hat and proposed to walk the remainder of the journey. The coach left without him. He had only proceeded a short distance when he was assaulted by two men. Bludgeoned, he fell to the ground insensible and the assailants prepared to rob him, but they were scared away by approaching persons. Mr. Ward was conveyed home with bruises and contusions and was in a very precarious state.
