I do not know a lot about the Stedmans as my father died when I was young and for some reason my mother seldom spoke much of about the past. I have not been researching very long. Anyway, my father Francis Montague Stedman was b.1904 East Ham married my mother Emily Hilda Dearlove in 1939 at Hornchurch, Essex. He had one brother, Boniface (Bon). One sister Fanny May. Dad died in 1954,mum 1999 aged 91. His father,Arthur May b.1877, Leyonstone,Essex m. Fanny Ellen Neave. I think he had 4 brtohers Edwin, Samuel, Clifford, Christopher. His father Edwin b. 1842 Petworth m. Emma Glazebrook b.1836 Westmill,Hertfordshire. At the moment I have just started working on the censusesfor Petworth trying to tie everyone up. The first week in June i am hoping to visit Petworth to have a look around the place. I would certainly be interested in your family tree. No, I have not managed to find out where John and Mary Sone came from. By the way I have three sisters. My eldest sister is helping me with my research.
