Origins of surname

This name came from the old English style, meaning ‘steel’, and indicated someone who worked with iron and steel – essentially a smith, but perhaps there were two men with the same forename working at a foundry, and one was called Smith, the other Steel.

Early records

Pierre Steele married Marie de Carteret, daughter of Francois, Seigneur of Vinchelez de Haut, in 1675, but they do not appear to have had any children in Jersey and the first baptism in the registers does not appear until 1787.
