The man who started it all...
Henry George Steatham
'The man that moved away',
the enigmatic figure of Steatham genealogy....
He became a Steatham by a stroke of fate....
What is the purpose of this website?
The primary aim is to research, which I have been doing since 1980, and publish the Steatham surname genealogy.
This website aims to be more than just a genealogical resource.
At regular intervals there will be featured articles on historically important Steathams. There are a number I already have details for, which I will be able to add.
More will be added as I receive letters, photos and so on, from contributors who wish their ancestors to be featured on the website.
There also plans to arrange meetings of Steathams.
If there is enough interest, the first is going to be sometime in 2009. It will be most likely held in Darlaston, details will be available on the web site in early February 2009.
How to contribute / get involved?
A good start would be to find out where you fit in Steatham genealogy. Although facts and figures are always welcome, other information such as old photos and so on, can be added to the site to make the Steatham ancestors come to life.
Any research others have done on Steathams can be contributed, and collaboration can be made to create articles to publish their work.
Who runs the website?
I do, Nigel James Wright.
How do I find more about my Steatham connection?
Firstly find out all you can about your parents and grand parents.
Although the Steatham surname originates from just one man Robert Steatham , there are two other trees which are Steatham in origin. Henry George Steatham and Charles Steatham.
We now have a vast amount of data of everyone in these trees, and it is normally possible to link someone in with minimal information.
What is the source of the facts detailed on the website?
Where possible, reference notes will be included so that the source can be found, and All WebPages will be checked for compliance to HTML standards.
Where possible pages are laid out such that the page contains all the information / images of the subject matter.
Note - this may mean that information gets repeated. This is done to allow a page to be read standalone.
Are images / text on the website copyrighted?
Unless stated all images / text are copyrighted, and should not be copied or reproduced in anyway whatsoever. Unless stated otherwise the copyright stays with contributor.
What does the section additional research mean?
These are a list, a sort of aide memoir of what I need to do next.
There are two catagories, In Progress, where I am actively working to get the information, and Planned, these I ideally wish to have, but they may well have to wait, until say funds allow.
I sometimes see a ? in text, what does this mean?
This is where I cannot decypher the information from the census or other document, I also use it to indicate I am waiting to get information.
"and then was lost us", what does this mean?
When a Steatham female marries, her surname changes to her Husbands, and it is generally impossible for me to research their descendents.
This does not mean I have no information about their descendents, I may have quite detailed information from Census or their descendents contacting me.
Website viewing / printing advice.
This site is best viewed in Internet Explorer, and I suggest printing pages in landscape, and also recommend setting margins set to 0, if your printer will allow, or as small as possible.
Also select print background and images, in Tools | Internet Options... | Advanced | Printing: Print background colors and imagesprint preview.
Pages are arranged so that on the left is the column for the menu, next is the photo column, and then on the right is the text column.
What is the policy regarding details for living persons?
Normally details for persons still living are not included on the web site.
How do I contact the website?
