I have one other child for William & Catherine: Elizabeth bapt 3 Aug 1788
Burstow. Nothing further known.
Amey Elliott first married Thomas's brother William. A transcript of Worth
PR has marriage after banns 19 April 1818. William STEER, bachelor with
consent of parents, and Amy ELLIOTT, Spinster. Witnesses William WORSELL &
Elizabeth SMITH. I believe Elizabeth was Amy's mother who remarried a
William SMITH in Worth in 1812.
William died in Burstow and was buried there 21 July 1826.
The Sussex Quarter Sessions at Lewes 14 July 1820 no.4098. ordered William,
wife Amey and John age 5 months to be removed from Worth, Sussex to Burstow,
For William & Amy I have children John 1820 Worth, married Rachel ILLMAN
Islington 1845, has 6 children.
William 1822 baptised & buried Burstow.
Edward 1825 Burstow married Jane REED Islington 1856, had 6 children.
After William died Amey moved in with Thomas like you I have never found a
marriage, though that wouldn't have been legal under CofE rules it was
commonplace, more often an unmarried sister of the deceased wife.
I have children:
Mary 1830 Burstow, married Henry LEWER 1857 St George the Martyr, Southwark.
Elizabeth 1832 Burstow.
Amy 1835 Burstow.
George 1837 Burstow, married Jane MEECHAM 1859 St George the Martyr,
Jane 1841 Burstow. STEER, JANE ELIOTT

Sarah and Daniel are with Thomas & Amey in the 1851.
GRO entries are from the free Government online index that shows mother's
maiden names for all births and ages for all deaths, though their site is
unfriendly and their indexing is poor. The paper indexes GRO previously
issued had maiden names from 1911 and death ages from 1866, now you can see
I wasn't aware of Amey remarrying so thanks. If you want more detail email

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 marriage I have found is an Amy ELLIOT marrying a William STEER 19
Apr 1818 in Worth, Sussex.
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
His birth registration was recorded as "male" STEER
