My name is Elisabeth Wilson, of Lincoln, England.
I am descended from Michael Steer and Fidelia Heward (m 1720 Rotherham),
parents of Samuel Steer, and grandparents of John (m 1790 Ann Renton). They
were a family of sawyers. John left a will in 1836, naming several children,
including John Samuel and James. My ancestor, the son John Steer, was father
of a sawyer turned timber merchant, Alford Steer (1823-1907), sho set up
business in Sheffield, and was father to Charle Henry, George, John, Alfred,
Thomas, Elizabeth and William. I have further information about all the
individuals mentioned above, including wills and press cuttings. I would
love to hear from any cousins.
