|2. ||John le Stedeman, of Fulford, Co. York (1.Roger1) was born Abt 1246; died Aft 1326. |

John le Stedeman was in 1302 "assaulted and spoiled of goods"; and in 1326 he was mentioned as the father of Thomas le Stedeman. The said assault and spoilage occurred during the period when the Scots were struggling to maintain their independence from the rule of Edward I, King of England, and when parties of Scotsmen were making occasional raids through the northern counties of England. It appears that John was sympathetic toward the cause of the Scots, and that the damage which he suffered was done by the English in retaliation against him because of some aid and encouragement which he had given to the Scots' raiding parties.

|3. ||Thomas le Stedeman, of the West Riding, Co. York (2.John2, 1.Roger1) was born Abt 1271; died Unknown, ____, ____, Scotland, UK. |
- Residence: West Riding, Co. York, England, UK
Thomas le Stedeman was named in 1299 in a "commission (or writ) of oyer and terminer" granted to a certain person for hearing and determining a case against him. Since the case involved treason, felony, or misdemeanor on the part of Thomas, and since the act was committed during a period of strife between Edward I (King of England) and Robert Bruce (crowned King of Scotland in 1306), it appears that the criminal act was related to the politcal struggle of the time. He probably was charged with having given aid and encouragement to the Scots, but eventually escaped and fled to Scotland where he became a supporter of the cause of independence for that country.

Simon le Stedman presumably was born in County York, England, and went to Scotland with his father.
He evidently was a leader among the Scots' forces sent by Robert Bruce (King of Scotland) to harry the English Counties of York and Northumberland, in retaliation for English inroads in Scotland, during the period of 1318-1323. In 1321 he was in an engagement with a body of Englishmen commanded by Sir Alexander de Mowbray. This engagement resulted in a peace treaty between Simon le Stedeman, Scotsman, and Sir Alexander de Mowbray, as recorded in the Records of the Scottish Privy Council. Another record states that "in 1321 Simon le Stedeman was received to the English king's (Edward II's) peace," evidently meaning that the king received and agreed to the peace treaty made between Stedeman and Mowbray.
