About the Study

The STEAD/STEED One-Name Study, a non-profit making Family History Society, was formed on 1st April 1996 by Shelagh Mason after a sizeable number of enquiries regarding these surnames. The Study is registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies in London (No. 2519), where it can be found on the Guild's homepage. In October 2005, the running of the Study was taken over by Bob Steed (of Somerset). Since its inception, the Study has amassed a huge amount of genealogical data, and we have enrolled over 250 members worldwide.
