Genealogy of the Steel Family

This Steel Family originates in the Cumberland and Westmorland areas of Northern England. There has been a long line of John and Joseph Steel's so far traced back to the late 1700's, the earliest coming from Crackenthorpe near Appleby.

Later branches appear to be centred around Bolton-Morland though with known branches in Kirkby Stephen and Kendal.

My Maternal side is Briscoe which seems to have originated in the Liverpool area, though they married into other families which come from Scotland and although not proven yet possibly Ireland, this line has so far been traced back to about 1770.
