Jack Ward was the son of John Ward and the owner of Ward farm after his father's death.


Jack Ward was the eldest of the seven Ward brothers and part of the Ward Family. Jack was jovial and patronizing to Tom, but later, he revealed an underlying jealousy when he told Tom that he had always been their mother's favorite. That later turned into greater animosity at each brush with danger that Tom's job entails. 

He was married to a woman named Ellie and they had two children together, a daughter named Mary and a son named Matthew.

Jack was also afraid of Tom being a spook as he told Tom only to come when it was day and leave before dark due to the chances of being attacked by witches.

He has inherited the Ward Farm from his father, and consequently he has the job of upholding the farm and passing it onto his son, inkeeping with family tradition.
