William Staveley was born 1799 in St. Mary Castlegate, York to William Staveley and Martha Clayton. On February 16, 1825 William married Amelia ABRAHAM in Rotherham, Yorkshire. By 1826 William and Amelia had moved to Eltisley, Cambridgeshire and appear to have two daughters born in the parish as follows:
|Sarah Jane Staveley||b. May 29, 1826||Eltisley, Cambridgeshire|
|Amelia Staveley||b. January 2, 1828||Eltisley, Cambridgeshire|
Shortly after daughter Amelia was baptized, it appears William moved the family to Thornton Curtis, Lincolnshire.
Daughter Sarah Jane Staveley married Charles BANKS at St. Mary's, Barton Upon Humber, Lincolnshire on December 28, 1851.
