Robert Steatham's early house at Darlaston, was at 6 Great Croft Street.
It was then owned by Thomas Steatham (1803-1873), who left it to his eldest daughter, Elizabeth Steatham.
Elizabeth Steatham then gifted the house to her sister Sarah Steatham, to use in her lifetime, and after her death, it passed to Henry George Steatham, who in the 1881 census was living at 25 Great Croft Street.
Henry George Steatham died Wednesday the 24th June 1931 at 6 Great Croft Street, and was buried on Tuesday the 30th June 1931, at Charlton Cemetery, Greenwich.
Unfortunately the whole street was demolished, and over it is now the ASDA supermarket.
