I'm joining up again after a 6 month hiatus. Had a brief look through the archives
but thought I'd re-post my interests just in case.
I'm researching the descendants of Robert Steer, born in Modbury in 1802 to Francis
Grills Steer and Mary Ann Morgan. Robert married Sarah Eleanor Turner in Bishopsteignton
on 23 February, 1823. Sarah was the daughter of Turpin Turner and Grace Gill of Kenn, and
she was born in about 1802.
Robert and Sarah had (all born in Bishopsteignton)
1. John Turner b. 1823 married Mary Anna Cook in Devon 1852, both emigrated to Australia
2. Marianne/Mary Ann b. 1825 married Frederick Brewin 1854 St. Kilda, Victoria, Australia
3. Francis Turpin b. 1831 married Olivia Sarah Cuckson (nee Taylor) 1863 Melbourne, Vic,
4. Henry b. 1833 married Francis Fowler 1856 Eltham, Victoria, Australia
5. Sarah b. 1835 d. 1835
Marianne came to Australia in 1849 on board the "Sir George Seymour", docking in
Sarah Steer (nee Turner) died prior to 1851 when Robert, Henry and Francis also emigrated
to Melbourne aboard the "Harry Lorrequer", reaching Melbourne in March 1851.
John Turner Steer and his wife Mary Anna emigrated to Australia on board the
"Windermere" arriving in Melbourne in December 1852.
I have a fair bit of information on the descendants of those listed. If anybody would
like any further information or can offer some in return, please let me know.
