The man who started it all...
A census is a snapshot for us of where all the Steathams are at a particular moment in time, and it also enable us see the expansion and geographical distribution of the Steatham family.
Each census gradually increased the amount of data being collected.
This is a continuing process more will be added, when I have time.
Once one census is finished I will move to the next.

the enigmatic figure of Steatham genealogy....
Steatham Research - Census
The first three, 1801, 1802, and 1803 are useless to us as they do not mention names, so we start with 1841.
[1841 - June 6th]
Note - In this Census, relationship to head not given.
Who do we expect to find?
He became a Steatham by a stroke of fate....
Thomas Steatham (1803-1873)
We should find their first son Thomas Steatham (1803-1873), his wife Sarah, daughters Elizabeth (1835-1913), Mary (1838-), and Sarah (1839-1928).
At Walsall Road we see Thomas Statham [sic] aged 35, his wife Sarah aged 40, Elizabeth aged 6, Mary aged 3, Sarah aged 1 1/2, and lastly Thomas aged 3 weeks.
Thomas is unexpected, as this is the only census that we ever find him in, but he was their son, and he was born on ? the 30th May 1841.
