Monmouth, Wales

William Staveley was born in Woolton, Liverpool to parents William Staveley and Mary.  In 1840 William married Jane BAKER in Liverpool, Lancashire.  A daughter Jane Staveley was born December 1, 1841 and christened in Liverpool the following year.  However, daughter Jane died in Liverpool in 1842.  A son William was born in 1843, and then a daughter Mary Ann was born in Liverpool in 1845.  Daughter Sarah Baker Staveley was born in St. Pancras, London in 1847, and christened at St. Thomas, Over Monnow, Monmouth on February 19, 1852. Thus far there are no other known children born to William and Jane.  William appears to have died in Liverpool in 1849.  By 1851 we find his widow Jane, and his two daughters residing in Monmouth with Jane's sister:
