I would like to know ancestral information and how to locate present day relatives in Yorkshire, England, elsewhere in England, Europe, etc. I am a descendant of William Stead who left York (?) England in 1871 and arrived on the east coast of Canada and initially settled in PEI. He was born William Stead (no middle initial ?) in Sheriff Hutton, Yorkshire, England July 17, 1774). I would like help with information on his parents, siblings or their descendants. He married Mary Rowntree on August 24, 1806, at St. Leonards Church, Farlington, England. They brought four children with them to Canada, on the 'Valient'. The four children were all born in Farlington, Eng. - Robert, Ann, Elizabeth, and Mary. I do not need information on any other Steads who emigrated to Canada. I am very interested in identifying his parents and siblings, and then locating any living relatives in England or elsewhere outside of Canada. This request may be shared.
Thank you for your assistance, Brenda Stead, Stead Consultants, NB Canada.
