Monthly - Anniversaries

January. Febuary. March. April. May. June. July. August. September. October. November. December.

The links to the months are listed above, and an explanation of who and what is covered is explained, below which I urge you read.

Beneath each person there is given their lineage in the Steatham tree, inside square brackets []

Going from left to right, each ancestor's name is given with the last name being the father of the person.

The only options for the start are either, Robert Steatham or Charles Steatham.

If the ancestor is say a 'featured person' it will be shown in bold, giving a link to their page.

Persons listed here are,

#1) Those who were born with the name Steatham.


[6th June]

1928, Robert Steatham, Buried, James Bridge Cemetery, Darlaston, Staffs.
[Robert > Joseph > Philemon]

#2) Those that gained their Steatham surname through marriage, this is historically women that marry Steatham men and take their surname.


[7th Febuary]

1919, Elizabeth Steatham {Griffiths}, Died, Darlaston, Staffs.
[Robert > Moses = Elizabeth Griffiths]

The = signifying Elizabeth the wife of Moses.

#3) Those that lose their Steatham surname through marriage, this is historically females that marry non Steathams males.

So for example Thomas Steatham's youngest daughter Mary Steatham, lost her's when she married Thomas Farr.


[4th September]

1912, Mary Farr {Steatham}, Died, Sutton Coldfield.
[Robert > Thomas > Mary = Thomas Farr]

Now it was not historically possible on marriage for a woman to retain her surname, but now it doesn't have to be so, and I urge all Steathams once they have the Steatham surname never ever give it up!

Remember the husband /partner can allways change their name to Steatham!

In recent times we have had a Steatham marry a Steatham, and how we would show it here I just have no idea, all I know is that in the future with couples hyphenating their surnames, say 'Steatham-Jones', and even just two names not hypenated as their surname, say 'Steatham Jones', it will only get more complicated.

We have seen the spanish idea of having the mother's maiden name as the middle name of the child. This would be one way of carrying the Steatham name forward!

Old - Anniversaries
