Are you related to the Padfield Steele's?

+4 votes
This question was asked of my grandparents many times.

The story goes that our original family last name was Padfield but that there was a remarriage and the children all adopted the last name of Steele.

This could be completely backwards.

My family goes back many generations in Ontario, Canada - specifically the Muskoka/Great Lakes Region, around Bracebridge and Utterson.

I am looking for information to support (?) the story - or at least track down the padfield link.

Not as far as I know. I have traced back to Samuel Steele b. 1794, he came from the U.S. and most of his descendants stayed around Kingston area. I have not come across the name Padfield at all. Sorry and good luck with the search
