Frederick Wordsworth Ward was a bushranger that operated under the name "Captain Thunderbolt" in the Uralla region of New South Wales. Accompanied by a range of offsiders including his wife Mary-Ann Bugg, he ruled the roads and became known as a gentleman bushranger. He held no truck with unnecessary violence or murder, turning away accomplices that had committed an act of either. He was eventually gunned down by a police constable as he drunkenly tried to cross a creek on foot.
