Burrow with Burrow, Lancashire

Henry Staveley is the son of Henry Staveley and Ann HARPER of Dent, Yorkshire.  Henry is found living at Robinson House Farm with the majority of his siblings in 1881, but their parents are still residing at Raw Ridding in Dent in 1881 with three of their brothers, Lindsay, Richard, and Thomas.

By 1891 we lose track of Henry.  His brother John (b. 1854) was married in 1889 to Mary Alice ATKINSON near Kendal.  In 1891 he appears to be residing in Burrow with Burrow as a lodger in the John Hoyle household:

However, there's a twist here.  John Staveley also appears to be living in Ingleton with his recently widowed sister Betsy and her two children in 1891.  In Ingleton John reports that he is married, but his spouse is not resident in the household during that census.  It is possible that Mary reported John as being present in the Burrow-with-Burrow house to be sure he was enumerated, but it appears he may have been enumerated in both locations in 1891.

In 1901 John and Mary are living in Tatham, Lancashire.
