I can see Cordelia's tree, and the fact that it comes to a full stop with John Steer
and Frances unknown.
By relating to baptism and census information, also GRO information for younger siblings,
Frances Matilda Steer can be seen to be daughter of John Steer and Frances Pierce, but
where does John Steer fit into the picture?
He isn't son of Edward Steer and Mary Terry. Some other trees have him as son of
George Steer and Amelia Tamplin, but no baptism that I have found. This would also link
him to William Steer and Elizabeth Haswell. There may be other possibilities.
As for your North Devon Steer family, don't give up on them yet. I have no proven
Steer matches, but plenty for Mary Jane Laversuch, who married Philip aka William Steer,
my great grandparents. Not any along the trail, as I have two unknown fathers and a
Steer/Steer marriage - no names to look for other 5hsn Steer and Outram.
However two first cousins have tested (also a totally unexpected first cousin once
removed). Between the 3 of them they have more than enough Steer and Outram matches to
prove that I am descended from this well documented Surrey family.
Get as many of your family to test as possible.

Cordelia's tree has
Frances Matilda (Amelia) Steer
Birth 30 OCT 1836 . Limpsfield, Surrey, England
Death 15 JAN 1871 . 3 Druid St., Neckinger, Bermondsey, Surrey
Father; John STEER... no details other than the above
Mother; Frances.... no details
My own STEER research has come to a screaching
halt with not a single DNA match with any
descendants of the North Devon STEER herd.
So it appears highly likely that the recorded
facts are not actually the biological facts of my
Paternal Grandmother's ancestry.

Vicky, That's the one. I am a 7 cMs match with her.
She is descended from John Steer born c. 1812, Limpsfield and Frances Pierce.
Other trees have this John Steer as
Son of Edward Steer 1789, Limpsfield and Mary Terry.
Grandson of John Steer 1748, Limpsfield and Susanna Watford
Great grandson of William Steer and Elizabeth Haswell
Stephen may have more information about this
family, but I have John Steer, son of Edward
Steer and Mary Terry born 11 Nov 1814, baptised
Dec 1814, Limpsfield, buried 6 Oct 1816 Limpsfield aged 1 yr and 11 months.
