Steve Hart was renowned for being one of the Kelly Gang.

He was born and named Stephen, the 2nd son, to Irish immigrant parents Richard and Bridget Hart (nee Young) at Three Mile Creek near Wangaratta, Victoria. His mother and father were married in Yass, NSW in 1852.  His brothers were Richard (@1856 - 1934), Nicholas (d. 1878), and Thomas (the youngest), and his sisters Ellen (@1853-1924) Edith or Esther 'Ettie', Jane, Winifred and Agnes (b. 1872). William (b. 1852)
As a teenager Steve Hart probably sometimes worked as a jockey like his brother Nicholas. He was arrested for stealing horses from David Green, of Winton, and sentenced to imprisonment. After this he received more sentences which he served in Beechworth gaol where met Dan Kelly the youngest brother of Ned Kelly.
He became friends with Dan Kelly and that is how he became involved with the Kelly Gang. He took part in the robberies at Euroa and Jerilderie.
He died at the Glenrowan Inn shoot out at the age of 21.
Extract of the Police Gazette 5th March, 1879. The latest official description of the Kelly Gang: "Steve Hart, about 21 years of age, 5 feet 4 inches high, dark complexion, black hair, short dark hair on sides of face and chin, bandy legs, stout build, clumsy appearance, speaks very slowly, dressed in dark paget suit, light felt hat and elastic-side boots.

I really like this article about Steve Hart but you got it WRONG.Esther Hart (sister) was NOT nicknamed Ellen or Edith, just Esther and Ettie.
