Aberdeen, Scotland

Marianne Fyfe Staveley (b. 1841) was the daughter of Richard Staveley (b. 1807) of St. Albans Wood St, London, and Agnes Jane Carter.  Marianne was born in Liverpool, and married a minister, Matthew GALBRAITH, on May 18, 1869 in Liverpool.  Marianne and her husband moved to Aberdeen before the birth of their first child Agnes in 1871, and this is where she stayed until her death sometime between the 1891 and 1901 Scottish census.

Son Richard is absent from the household, and it is presumed he died in childhood.  Agnes is also absent, but as her age should be about 20 in 1891 it is possible she has married and left the household.  It is likely that Marianne named her youngest son after her brother Frederic Winbolt Staveley.  Marianne died before the 1901 census, but we find her widowed husband and children still residing in Aberdeen...

Harry is not present in the household in 1901, and was not located the 1901 Scottish census.  A search of the England census for that year however revealed he was boarding with a family in Bootle, Lancashire (near where his Uncle Frederic is living at the time).
