Braithwell, Yorkshire

Francis Staveley married Grace WINKS on February 17, 1723 in Conisbrough Yorkshire.  Francis and Grace had the following children in Braithwell:

Francis Stavelay b. February 2, 1724 Braithwell, Yorkshire
Benjamin Staveley b. July 7, 1727 Braithwell, Yorkshire


It appears that Francis and Grace moved to the neighboring parish of Stainton by Tickhill before the birth of their next child in 1729.

It is interesting to note that Francis was married in Conisborough.  In the nearby parish of Mexborough there are many entries in the IGI for "Stanley" or "Standlay" events.  The original register entries have not yet been examined to determine if these may in fact be transcription errors.  It seems likely that at least some of those entries may indeed be for Staveley events rather than Stanley.
