An interesting project, but if you want to do a complete family tree of steam locomotives you will have to go back to Nicolas Cugnot's fardier à vapeur of 1769. Then to Richard Trevithick's first railway locomotive of 1804, a full 25 years before Stephenson's Rocket.
Good luck with your project.

P.S. Please note that it is Stephenson, not Stevenson. We people from his birthplace in the North East of England can get a little touchy about his name. :)
