     Wiliam Highley wrote on the Steer Mailing list:
William and Ann's son Charles William (1758-1810) of Devonshire Square London and of Chichester married Mary Wood from Jamaica and it is several of their children who have a slight West Country/ Isle of Wight connection.They are as follows:
Lt.Col. William Frederick Steer (1789-1871) after retiring from the Indian Army came back firstly to St Hellier Jersey before moving with his family to Cornwall and died at Marazion.
Another of their sons Charles William (who was to married to Jane Woodburn Watson) also moved to Devon/Somerset. Charles William who was a judge in Bengal, India is a bit of a mystery. It appears he was dismissed for corruption in 1841.It also appears than on the birth records of one of his children, Charles Rattray Hall Steer, he is down as Charles Wright Steer instead of Charles William Steer.It might just be a misprint though. However he and his wife Jane retired to Devon/Somerset living at a place called Springlawn, Heavitree*, Exeter and they also lived in Bath. Charles William was living on the 1881 census in Gay Street in the parish of Walcot Trinity.Also I have just found an Email from someone I was in contact with re. the Watson family who married into the Steer family saying that he had some "late 19th cent. notes made by a family member mentioning that Jane married Major Steer and had several children.Some of his family lived in Somersetshire where Charles Steer had a small estate." I have no knowledge of Charles William Steer being a Major so I am not exactly sure who they are. While we are on this generation there is a daughter who has an even more tenuous connection to your William Shaw re his French connection. You mentioned in your email that William lived in France. Frances Steer (1795-1869) who was sister to Charles William and William Frederick died in Lyons, France in 1869. Whether she went there on a regular basis I don't know.She was first married to Augustus Frederick Keppel 5th Earl of Albemarle and after his death married the Hon: Peregrine Francis Cust. She certainly had the wherewithal to go to France on a regular basis having inherited a share of a family trust.

The Heavitree* connection is quite interesting as I mentioned in an earlier email to you that there was an army barracks there. My great Grandmother Sophia Jane Steer was born in 1844 at Exeter. Her mother Sarah Jane Steer nee Baldwin who was married to my Great Grandfather Sullivan Harington Steer might well have come back from India for the birth to stay with her in-laws Charles and Jane Steer at Spring Lawns, Heavitree. Exeter. On her birth certificate it states that Lt Sullivan Harington Steer was present.He therefore also must have come back from India.It also might interest you to know that I believe his sister Susan Mainwaring Steer's husband Col:Frederick Nicholas Miles had been stationed at the Heavitree Barracks at one stage. On the 1881 census though he had retired and was living at St Hellier,Jersey.

You also mentioned a connection to the Isle of Wight. Again there is a rather distant one but in comes from Mary Steer who was sister to Charles William, William Frederick and Frances Steer. She married James Vine of Puckaster, Isle of Wight. I believe it is in the south of the Island. I have found 2 children for them.Their daughter Frances Augusta married Alexander Mitchell- Innes whose family came from Ayton, Berwickshire. They also had a son General Vine who at his death in 1892 was living at South Cliffe, Niton, Isle of Wight.
     Frances died before 1843 in France.
