      From: "Allie Stedman"
      Subject: Stedman family history

      Dear John,
      I was recently googling my grandfather Silas Stedman when I came across your letter - I'm not sure if you have resolved your question, yet but I thought I should email you to let you know that Silas Stilwell Stedman was my great-great grandfather (I think that's the right number of greats!) and Harriet Stedman obviously my great-great grandmother. They both came out to New Zealand in 1860 and Silas Stilwell Stedman was the first surgeon at Christchurch Hospital by 1862. I am unfortunately temporarily living overseas at the moment so I don't have the facts close to hand, but I am pretty sure they both died of a fever while he was attending patients in the countryside, and we have a lot more information on them at home. I don't know if we have any information on Harriet's parentage, but when I am home (in December) I could look up the deaths records at the public library in Christchurch, as I have seen both hers and Silas' there, I think. I could also email my father or uncles to ask any questions, if you want to ask any. I would be very pleased to pass on more information about the New Zealand wing of the Stedman family, as it has been very exciting to find yours and others' information on the internet.

      Please let me know if you have any questions,
      Alison Stedman.
