Thank you for your prompt response.
I would be very happy to exchange information with you. Richard Steele was my husband's grandfather and most of the information is from that line of the family. I also have information on the children of Matthew and William.
I will e-mail all the details.
Best Wishes

I have details in a branch of my family tree of a Matthew Steele, planter of Demerara, however I don't know his date of birth. Roughly I can say that he married into my family line around 1834 and I know definitely three of his children, Edward, George and William, the latter born circa 1848.

I'd be glad to exchange information, having details of other Steeles of around that period as well as more recent generations.

Hi There, Looking for family of Thomas Steele who emigrated to Demerara from Grenada sometime after 1857 possibly via Trinidad. He was 5th son of Richard Steele of Grenada and is said to have died at his home on the Brickdam in Georgetown, Demerara 12 May 1878 according to The Colonist Newspaper. Probably not related to parents of Matthew, Richard & William but worth a try.

FYI I did come across info that a Matthew Steele was partner in Murray Brothers & Co. out of Georgetown a company which included Thomas & Henry Murray, George Henry Loxdale and William Hick around 1853. It was linked to Murrays Loxdale & Co. operations out of Liverpool and trade under the name Steele Loxdale & Co out of Demerara until 1860. The Liverpool operation under name George H. Loxdale & Co went on until 1878. Found at - commercial legacy menu.

Hope you have come across Thomas Steele! Cheers Susan
