Hi There, Looking for family of Thomas Steele who emigrated to Demerara from Grenada sometime after 1857 possibly via Trinidad. He was 5th son of Richard Steele of Grenada and is said to have died at his home on the Brickdam in Georgetown, Demerara 12 May 1878 according to The Colonist Newspaper. Probably not related to parents of Matthew, Richard & William but worth a try.

FYI I did come across info that a Matthew Steele was partner in Murray Brothers & Co. out of Georgetown a company which included Thomas & Henry Murray, George Henry Loxdale and William Hick around 1853. It was linked to Murrays Loxdale & Co. operations out of Liverpool and trade under the name Steele Loxdale & Co out of Demerara until 1860. The Liverpool operation under name George H. Loxdale & Co went on until 1878. Found at www.ucl.ac.uk - commercial legacy menu.

Hope you have come across Thomas Steele! Cheers Susan
