Steatham Research - Vicars

The following are details of Vicars that appear in the Steatham story.

Where we have detailed information on a particular Vicar then a summary will appear here with a link to them as a Featured Steathams.

I have listed them in date order, earliest first and so on.

It is interesting to note that the three Steatham vicars, John Waltham, Samuel lowe, and Joseph Hugill that are mentioned here, are all buried in the Rectory Vault at St Lawrence.

Note - this is still work in progress.
