    Notes 
    • From "The Royal Grammar School Guildford", by D.M. Sturley: [1819]

      "There were three candidates for the post of Master and two of them had the same name: the Reverend John Stedman, curate of St. Mary's and Holy Trinity parishes; another John Stedman from Wandsworth; and a Mr. Abbott from Dorking. At a Guild Merchant on March 2nd 1819, the curate of St. Mary's and Holy Trinity was appointed with 20 votes while his namesake from Wandsworth received 9 votes. Thus the next Master was the Reverend John Stedman and he served from 1819 to 1822. Things did not go well for Stedman and his resignation came within four years."

      In the death notice for his daughter Charlotte, it mentions that she was the daughter of Rev. John Stedman, vicar of Gosfield, Essex. I found parish records from Gosfield from the 1830s that showed a Rev. John Stedman as the vicar there at that time. As the last records are in 1836, this data is consistent with notes that suggest he died in 1837, likely in Gosfield. His wife and daughters was listed in Guildford in the 1841 census.

      So the Rev. John Stedman from Wandsworth is also the Vicar of Gosfield. Based on a Will from his uncle, it would seem that he is part of the Godalming Stedman family. It would seem that his wife was the daughter of his uncle.

      But we have no idea who the Rev. John Stedman who got the job was!
