William Ward (1762 - 1826) was an English engraver. He was the son of James and Rachael Ward, and elder brother of James Ward. Ward was appointed engraver to the Duke of York, the Prince of Wales, and associate engraver to the Royal Academy. His brother James was one of the outstanding artists of the day, his singular style and great skill set him above most of his contemporaries. Ward trained his brother James in engraving, and later engraved much of his work. Ward was married to Maria Morland, sister of George Morland, and had two children - Martin Theodore Ward (d.1874) and William James Ward (d.1840).

Thomas Weaver (1774 - 1843) was a British painter of animals and agricultural scenes.
