Steele of Woodseaves
« on: Friday 29 December 17 20:11 GMT (UK) »
I have this week found after 11 years of putting together my Steele tree (with lots of help from the lovely people on here), that I have followed the wrong tree.... I am however missing the baptism record of my 4th Great Grandfather, (Thomas Steele bn.1771, died 1846 Wellington, Shropshire) which would be my confirmation with this other family.

I came across my 4th Great Grandfathers will, which names a Brother George of Woodseaves. I have since found all the Wills of the family in Woodseaves including his father which names him among his other brothers.
I have been through the parish records for Drayton in Hales and found all the siblings of Thomas Steele, and as mentioned in John Steels Will. But no Thomas

Here is the Family...

John Steel d.1817 Wife possibly Elizabeth Gee m. 1763 Woodseaves

William bn.1763
Jane bn. 1768
John bn.1770
Thomas bn.1771
George bn. 1774
Sarah bn. 1775
Joseph bn. 1778
James bn. 1782

If anyone would like to take this challenge of finding Thomas's baptism that would be really appreciated  :)

Thats the one that I originally chose to follow as there was no other Thomas's born in Shropshire in that year.

Unfortunately, everyone else with the same family on Ancestry have also followed the Hinstock line.

I can find baptisms for all the children you have listed with the exception of Thomas. They were all baptised, father's name John, in Market Drayton, which is the Parish for Woodseaves according to the Genuki pages for Shropshire. The baptisms are all on familysearch but no Thomas.

Thank you for checking....

I will have to rely on the what is written in the Wills, Thomas did live in Drayton also and baptised most of his children there too.
