One of the original founding Stedman families in America is the family of Isaac Stedman, originally of Biddenden, Kent, England who came to America on the Ship Elizabeth in 1636 and settling in Scituate, MA. He arrived with his wife Elizabeth and sons Isaac and Nathaniel.

Isaac Stedman was born in Biddenden, Kent, England, about 1605 and baptized there on 21 April 1605.

As Isaac "Studman" he was certified by the clergyman of St. Alphege Cripplegate, and by two men from Blackwell Hall, which was the cloth market of London, to which all of the cloth-weaving centers such as Biddenden sent their goods. It was inconnection with this trade that Isaac Stedman probably went to London.

About 1630 he married Elizabeth Winchester. They had three children in England, baptized in Biddenden: Elizabeth (who died young), Nathaniel, and Isaac.

Isaac came to America sometime before 1634 and established a homesite in Scituate in the Plymouth Colony with Rev. Lothrop's group from Kent. In 1635, his wife and sons came to America on the ship Elizabeth. It is not clear from the passenger list if Isaac was on that ship as he is not listed on the passenger list with his wife and children. The Elizabeth sailed from London on 8 April 1635.

He settled in Scituate, where he was admitted to the church 17 July 1636. He was a constable and made freeman 7 June 1648. He removed to Boston in 1650, and later was of Muddy River (now Brookline).
