Ward surname with German origin.

If you have Ward ancestors of "German" descent,
I would be interested in learning about it. My earliest
ancestor, Benjamin Ward settled in Northampton County, PA
in the 1700s, and probably died before 1790.
His exact "German" origins are unknown.
What other spelling of Ward are recorded in your family?
What ships did your "German" Ward were listed as passengers?
What was the port of departure and arrival? Thank you.
