    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.
