Wynonna Earp Wiki

Ward Earp was a descendant of Wyatt Earp and the father of Willa, Wynonna and the legal father of Waverly Earp. He was married to Michelle who left him and the children around 1998. He was born on November 17, 1966 and died September 7, 2000 during a raid from The Seven on the homestead where Wynonna accidentally shot him.

Biography

When he was young, he met Michelle Gibson and impregnated her with Willa, leading to them getting married. Two years later, she and Ward had Wynonna, with the marriage being unhappy and abusive.

After Waverly was born in 1995, Ward pushed Waverly's biological father, Julian, over the edge of the Ghost River Triangle, causing him to lose his memories. Later, Ward was drinking at Shorty's until he is interrupted by Bobo Del Rey. Bobo has a baby Waverly in his arms and tells Ward he'll be looking after her, but Ward doesn't want anything to do with her and aims Peacemaker at the revenant until Bobo uses his powers to take the gun away.

Between 1995 and 2000, Ward would have alcohol and a gun ready, sitting on the porch at the homestead during Halloween. He also locked Wynonna in the cellar for three days after he found she stole a pair of his overalls and two fistfuls of straw so Waverly could dress up as a scarecrow.

He would also beat his wife and children until Michelle left in 1998.

On September 7, 2000, Ward made a deal with Bobo about having protection for his daughters and to receive the lead. Sometime later, Ward tried to protect his daughters from the Seven and had been taken out of the house during the raid on the homestead. He was accidentally shot in the back by Wynonna who had tried to fire at the revenants.

Trivia

  • Waverly is not his biological daughter.
  • In the episode "Purgatory" his wife's name is listed as "Wendy Rossie" on the family tree on Waverly's bedroom wall. Later on in I Hope You Dance, however, her name is confirmed as "Michelle".
  • It is inferred by Willa that he beat his wife, as she would take their daughters to the edge of town when she "couldn't take anymore of daddy's fists".
  • Ward may also have been abusive to his children. In The Other Woman, Wynonna quotes Ward with the line "This is going to hurt you more than it hurts me". According to her, Ward said this quite often before handing out punishments.
  • He was the Heir from 1993 to 2000.
