Bertie County Court Records [abstract by transcribed by Weynette Parks Haun] 
In July 1761 Aaron Asbell, son of Margaret Asbell was bound as apprentice to Thomas Ward to be taught the business of a cooper [ vol II page 84]   [543-278]
In Aug 1764 James Asbell orphan of Margaret Asbell about the age of fourteen was bound until age 21 to Thomas Ward to learn the trade of a house carpenter.
[vol III page 25[ [676-350]
In June 1766 Charity Asbell orphen of Margert Asbell aged about six years of age be bound as an apprenctice to Stephen Kater untill she is of age [vol III page 43] [734-385]

note: this has to be the Thomas Ward connected with Margaret Asbell [he would be an Uncle of my Thomas Ward who was not born until after 1742 ---not included on the 1757 tax list.
 DNA has shown these Asbell's to be the same as that of Thomas Ward.
