Richard STEEL (c1665-?)

and Ann MIDHURST (1669-?)


Richard Steel and Ann Midhurst were, I believe, my 8x Great Grandparents.  They married on 23 May 1697 in Henfield, Sussex.

Richard Steelís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might he have been the son of Edward Steel and Mary Michell?  They married on 22 April 1652 in Cowfold, Sussex.

Ann Midhurst was baptised on 5 January 1669/70 in Henfield.  She was the daughter of John Midhurst and Elizabeth Burtenshaw.


Richard Steel and Ann Midhurst had 5 known children:

  1. Sarah Steel was baptised on 10 October 1698 in Hurstpierpoint, Sussex

  2. Ann Steel was baptised on 21 March 1701/2 in Hurstpierpoint.

  3. Richard Steel was baptised on 10 September 1704 in Hurstpierpoint.

  4. 5 312 John Steel, my 7x Great Grandfather, was baptised on 23 March 1706/7 in Hurstpierpoint.  He married Elizabeth Bartholomew in 1732.  (They have their own page.)

  5. Elizabeth Steel was baptised on 29 May 1710 in Hurstpierpoint.
