    Dear Mr. Lisle,
    Thank you for your e-mail of May 16th.

    I am interesting in those descending from Nathaniel Stedman, buried 28 April 1791 in Sevenoaks, Kent, U.K.

    By his first marriage to Elizabeth he had one son John baptised July 1755 at Sevenoaks.

    By his second wife Mary Parsons he had 13 children, one of his sons, James Stedman was baptised 17June 1763 Speldhurst, Kent, and buried at West Malling 4 September 1828. He had 11 children all born at West Malling.

    I have several other records from this family, but am unable to track the list to see if they are already on.
    Sincerely,
    Doreen Dossik

  1. 8.  William Stedman was born Bef 7 Apr 1678; was christened 7 Apr 1678, Balcombe, Sussex, England, UK (son of Thomas Stedman and Miss [--?--], son of John Stedman and Mary Burstow); died Bef 15 May 1760; was buried 15 May 1760, Ardingly, Sussex, England, UK.

    Other Events:

    • Alt. Birth: Cal 1678, Ardingly, Sussex, England, UK

    Notes:

    Thomas and William Stedman were identified as sons of a Thomas Stedman, born in Ardingly, on a well distributed family tree of this family. The link is not documented.

    Mandy Willard (http://www.mandywillard.co.uk/index.htm) has documented that they are children of John Stedman and Mary Burstow of the neighboring village of Balcombe.

    Although she does not present any evidence to support her analysis, I think she is correct. Two facts tend to support her contention. First, as Balcombe is just about two miles from Ardingly, one can easily accept that they moved to the next village. Second, a William Stedman was baptized at Balcombe in Balcombe in 1678, and the William Stedman in Ardingly was buried there in 1760 at age 82 which would calculate out to a birth in 1678.

    Christened:
    Will. Stedman, son of Jo. Stedman, was baptized at Balcombe, according to an IGI Parish record.

    Buried:
    According to the National Burial Index, William Stedman, age 82, was buried at St. Peter, Ardingly.
