John Steedman, a Scottish Lowlander, took part in the Jacobite rebellion between Britain and the supporters of Bonnie Prince Charles who tried to restore the English and Scottish thrones to the Stuart family. After Prince Charles' defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, Steedman fled to northern Ireland. In order to escape capture by the English, he disguised his name as "Steidham," which was later spelled "Stidham, Stedham and Steadham." He went from Ireland to New York about 1758. From New York, John and his brother, Robert, went to Charleston, South Carolina, arriving there by 1760. In Charleston, John and Robert operated a barbershop and grew indigo plants. John dyed cloth from the indigo plants for weaving. In 1769, John moved to present Fairfield Co., South Carolina (old Camden District) and lived on a 400-acre land grant. In 1784, he sold the 400 acres and moved to the present community of White Oak, Fairfield Co., South Carolina. Soon after 1790, John returned to Charleston where one of his sons lived. He died in 1795 while visiting his son, George, in present Lexington Co., South Carolina. He is buried on George's first plantation cemetery on the North Fork of Edisto River. - ref: Joseph Earle Steadman Sr., "Barton and Stedman also Steedman and Steadman Families," 1987.

His son George legally changed his name back to Steedman in 1825, which was later written as "Steadman." His brothers continued to write their names as "Stidham, Stedham, Steadham, etc." SOURCE: Joseph E. Steadman (d).

Was George Steedman in fact a STIDHAM*? One of his descendants was positively identified as a direct descendant of Timen Stiddem from DNA testing. For a long time, another descendant, Joseph Earle Steadman, Jr. thought Zachariah [172] Stidham and Geroge Steedman were brothers until he surmised they were only brothers-in-law. But, maybe Steadman was right in the first place. Maybe Zachariah and George were actually brothers.

Was George Steedman in fact a STIDHAM*? One of his descendants was positively identified as a direct descendant of Timen Stiddem from DNA testing. For a long time, another descendant, Joseph Earle Steadman, Jr. thought Zachariah [172] Stidham and Geroge Steedman were brothers until he surmised they were only brothers-in-law. But, maybe Steadman was right in the first place. Maybe Zachariah and George were actually brothers.

George Steedman, his younger brother John Steedman, and Zachariah Stidham [172] Jr. lived near each other in Edgefield County and Lexington County (Orangeburg District), where they were listed as "Stedum" in the 1790 census.
