Steane, Edward, D.D.
an English Baptist minister, was born at Oxford, March 23, 1798. He studied privately at Oxford; in 1819 entered the academy at Bristol; and in 1821 went to Edinburgh to prosecute his studies still further. While at Oxford and Edinburgh his services were much in demand as a preacher. In 1823 he entered upon his first and only pastorate at Camberwell. Failing health and the death of his wife induced his retirement from the pastoral office in 1862. He removed to New House Park, near Rickmansworth, where he died, May 8, 1882. Dr. Steane was active and efficient in all the denominational enterprises, and instrumental in the organization of the Evangelical Alliance. He was one of the editors of the New Baptist Miscellany, and for some years editor of Evangelical Christendom. He published, besides numerous sermons, volume entitled The Doctrine of Christ, ais Developed by the Apostles, etc. (1872). See (Lond.) Baptist Handbook, 1883, page 276.
