Families covered: Steade (Stede) of Onesacre

(1) Commoners reports that this family was at Onesacre, Yorkshire, in the time of King Edward II (who r. 1327-1377). Both Commoners & FMG start with the following John. Commoners reports that his immediate successors were Thomas, John, John and Nicholas (presumed to be the Nicholas who m. Mary Revel). FMG shows John as father of Peter father of John father of Thomas father of John father of Nicholas father or Richard (possibly a Nicholas) who was probably father Nicholas (m. Margaret Revel) but reports "There is no proof of the filial relations of these, but every probability." The following attempts to pull this together but, with FMG showing more generations than Commoners yet not being fully convincing regarding the dates given, we are left with a somewhat arbitrary and unconvincing compromise. We show the uncertain generations in italics.
(2) Commoners spells the family name "Steade". FMG spells it as "Stead". We broadly follow the former but do not attempt to be consistent with that.
