Richard's son Robert married Elizabeth RICHARDSON May 15, 1774 in Kilnwick, and settled there.
Richard died in Kirkburn on September 14, 1760.
Another Kirkburn Staveley group is that of Isaac Staveley and Ann PEIRCY. Isaac is the brother to Richard above. Isaac and Ann were married in Leven on July 3, 1748 and had the following children in Kirkburn parish:

|William Staveley||b. June 8, 1760||Kirkburn|
|Isaac Staveley||b. December 3, 1761||Kirkburn|
Isaac and Ann appear to have moved their family to Nafferton by the time their daughter Anne was christened in 1764.
Isaac Staveley is the son of Isaac Staveley and Ann PORDON of North Dalton. Isaac and Mary SIMPSON were married in Bainton on February 27, 1813 and had the following children in the parish of Kirkburn:

In 1841 we find Isaac and Mary as follows:
1841: Tibthorpe Manor House, Kirkburn, Yorkshire
Isaac's son Simpson Staveley married Ann HORNBY in 1849, and had the following children in Kirkburn:
|John Alfred Staveley||b. August 10, 1851||Kirkburn, Yorkshire|

Simpson's son Herbert Isaac Staveley died in the winter of 1853. The remainder of this family is then found residing in the neighboring parish of Tibthorpe in 1851.
In 1884 Simpson's son Harold Hornby Staveley married Marion Blanche TOPHAM and is living back in Kirkburn by 1891:

Note that Harold's daughter, Muriel Mary Staveley, served in Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service during World War 1 (see Medal Cards). In 1901 Muriel is a pupil at Clarence House Ladies School in Filey Yorkshire. By 1901 Harold is residing in North Dalton closer to his brother John Alfred Staveley.
George Staveley was born in Reighton, Yorkshire in 1843, the son of Samuel Staveley and Ann GIBSON. George married Elizabeth FOSTER in 1864 and settled in Southburn, in the parish of Kirkburn.

Living next door to George and Elizabeth, appears to be Elizabeth's mother, Hannah. Hannah is a widow, aged 56, and listed as a 'Farmer of 335 acres of land, employing 11 labourers and 4 boys'. She has two son's living with her, John aged 22, and Alfred aged 15.
Sadly, the 1871 census is the last time we see George. George Staveley died in 1879 at the age of 36 years. In 1881 we find his widow Elizabeth in Southburn:

|Eliza STAVELEY||Daur||U||Female||8||Southburn, Yorkshire, England||Scholar|

Elizabeth's mother Hannah and brother Alfred are still living nearby.
Elizabeth's daughter Mary is in Southburn in 1881, working in the household of John Staveley (b. 1816) of Tibthorpe, later of Kirkburn, and his wife Margaret. It turns out that Elizabeth's daughter Mary, and this John Staveley, are actually second cousins, twice removed! They share a common ancestor in Isaac Staveley and Ann PIERCY of Kirkburn (above). John Staveley is descended through Isaac and Ann PIERCY's son Isaac (b. 1761), whereas Mary descends through Isaac and Ann's son Michael (b. 1750).

Elizabeth's daughter Hannah, aged 13, is staying with her aunt Sarah (nee FOSTER) and her husband George BATCHELOR who are living in Lund, Yorkshire.
In 1883 Elizabeth and George's son, John William Staveley, died at the age of 7 years. Elizabeth seems to have remarried the following year to a Robert MARTIN in 1884. In 1891 we find this family has moved to Tibthorpe.
George and Elizabeth's daughter Hannah married a Mark BRAYSHAW in 1887 and settled in Scagglethorpe, near Settrington, Yorkshire. A son Staveley Brayshaw was born the same year, and he later married Maude GILL in 1919.
Daughter, Mary Ann, married in 1894 to a George James LANDAMORE of Norwich, Norfolk, and settled in Etton, near Beverley, Yorkshire.
After a brief stay in Tibthorpe, Elizabeth and Robert return to Kirkburn by 1901:
