William STEEL 1
William was described as 'of Soulby' for the baptism of this two older children, Mary and William: William jnr married Agnes Chapelow and lived in the parish of Warcop. There is a gap of 11 years between the baptism of William jnr in 1728, and Elizabeth in 1739, so William snr may have married twice. The three youngest children were all born in Skelcies in the parish of Kirkby Srephen. Elizabeth married Adam Hutchinson, a farmer in Ing Hill in the parish of Mallerstang on the River Eden upstream of Kirkby Stephen, and had six children there. The next daughter was Sarah (qv), and the youngest son John died young.
