Stephen & Margaret
I have been watching all the emails & always looking to see if there are any matches
in my tree & today I see two familiar names:
William STEER & Catherine GRINAWAY
These are my 4 x great grandparents.
They had 6 children as far as I am aware:-
John d. May 1787
William b 1790
John b. 1793
Thomas b. 10 Jun 1795 d. 1853 (my 3 x great grandfather)
Jane b. 4 Jul 1798
Edward b. 1801
Thomas married Am[e]y ELLIOTT but as yet I haven’t found a marriage.
The only marrriage I have found is an Amy ELLIOT marrying a William STEER 19 Apr 1818 in
Was Thomas known as William? Were they the same person?
Amy married William BASHFORD in 1856 after Thomas had died.
She died two years later 18 Feb 1858 aged 57
I believe William BASHFORD is also related to me, but I need to prove the link.
Thomas & Amy had 7 children (that I have so far found).
Their youngest son Daniel b. 4 May 1846 d. 13 May 1907 was my 2 x great Grandfather.
His birth registration was recorded as “male” STEER
You probably already have this information, but it may be of some use.

I suspect the parents of George STEER who married Mary MITCHELL are George
STEER c1700 buried 1763 Edenbridge age 63, who married Sarah HODGE 5 Nov
1751 in Lingfield, likely a 2nd marriage for George. They had three known
children William 1754 Edenbridge who married Catherine GRINAWAY, Sarah 1757
Edenbridge buried 1758 Edenbridge, and George 1760 Edenbridge. Sarah HODGE
remarried 1769 to a Thomas HALE in Edenbridge.
I note that an Edward STEER was a witness to the marriage of George STEER &
Mary MITCHELL, could he be from father George's previous marriage.
As usual not enough information.
