James Steele (1827-1897) + Mary Young (1827-1899)
« on: Sunday 04 March 18 03:47 GMT (UK) »
Hello all,

I'm looking for helping with leads on the families of James Steele (1827-1897) and Mary Young (1827-1899) in England.  The couple had emigrated to Canada, were married, and living in Hamilton, Wentworth, Ontario, by 1861 (when they start appearing in census records there). A death certificate for their daughter Elizabeth Steele Jackson from Dec 1936 that lists her mother as Mary Grey instead of Young. At the same period of time there was a George Steele who lived within walking distance of the family, and was born in the 1830s so could be a brother.

Death details:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q93-C9YJ-Y9QN-3?i=510&cc=1307826

All of their children, except their first (Jane), were born in Ontario according to the census records (I have not seen birth records for any of them).  They were also all married in Ontario (their marriage records all show their parents as James and Mary).

Children (approximate birthdates and accurate marriage dates):
Jane Steele - b. 1853 (m. 1873  Benson Chrysler)
Jessie M Steele - b. 1855 (m. 1871 James Mungo Main)
Mary "Mamie" Steele - b. 1857 (m. 1881 James Delmer Mills)
Eliza Steele - b. 1859 (m. 1882 Frederick Elias MacDonald)
James Steele - b. 1864 (m. 1888 Jane Ellen Patrick)
Elizabeth "Lizzie" Steele - b. 1868 (m. 1889 Walter Dixon Jackson)
Isabella Steele - b. 1872 (m. 1889 to John Hamilton Terryberry)

I'm hoping to find information on their parentage to begin researching the lines further in England.

Thank you for your help!
