John Staveley (b. 1822) of Aysgarth, son of George Staveley and Dorothy Wray, married Mary Ann WALMSLEY of Salford on November 14, 1852. In 1861 John and Mary are residing in Failsworth, but by 1871 have moved the family to Hulme:

***This is William Wray Staveley who married Sarah Maria SENIOR of Edinburgh, Scotland. They were married in Barton Upon Irwell in 1880 and by 1881 had moved to West Bromwich, Stafford. They then relocated to Pontefract, West Yorkshire where they are found in the 1881 census.
In 1881 John and Mary, and their children, are staying with John's nephew Henry in Salford. Henry's was born in 1844 in Horwich, the son of John's sister Jane. After Jane died in 1851, when Henry was just 6 years old, John and Mary took Henry in and raised him as their own.
On May 15, 1870, Henry Staveley married Martha Atmore PRATT at Manchester Cathedral:

Perhaps John was ill or unable to work and this may explain why he is residing with his nephew in 1881. John died in 1885, and his wife Mary died the following year. Daughter Jane was located in the 1891 census, occupation "stitcher", boarding at 6 Craven St, in Salford. In 1893 Jane married James Kershaw in Salford. Daughter Agnes married Robert JENKINS in 1889 in Salford, and they are found living with Robert's father on Union St, Ardwick in 1891 along with their two sons Alfred and Robert.
In 1891 Henry has moved, but remains in Salford:

Enos Davenport Staveley was born in Higher Booths in 1865, and was the son of Enos Staveley of Aysgarth and Elizabeth Davenport of Chorley. He is the grandson of George Staveley and Dorothy Wray of Aysgarth. In 1901 we find Enos with his wife Emily living in Withnell. By 1901 Enos and Emily have moved to Salford:
1911: 66 Earl St., Lower Broughton, Salford, Lancashire

|Eunice STAVELEY||Daur||U||Female||10||Brinscall, Lancashire, England|
|Jack STAVELEY||Son||U||Male||1||Brinscall, Lancashire, England|
Daughter Eunice was eventually to spend much of her life institutionalized, and she died in 1967 after an extensive incarceration at Whittingham Lunatic Asylum near Preston, Lancashire. It is not clear exactly what Eunice's disability was that lead to her hospitalization, and the family never spoke of her. We do know that her mother Emily purchased a house in Stacksteads for Eunice, ever hopeful that some day she would 'get better' and come home.
Son Enos (aged 14 above) served as a Private in the Manchester regiment in WW1, earning the British War Medal, the Victory medal, and the Silver War Badge. It is unknown what the nature of Enos' injury/illness was that qualified him for the latter award. He later married Alice TETLEY, but unfortunately he died toward the end of 1945.
WW1 Medal Card for Enos Staveley (1897-1945)
Enos and Emily's son Jack, born in 1909 in Brinscall, married Eleanor Taylor in 1934 and settled near Bacup Enos Davenport Staveley is listed in the 1929 Kelly's Directory of Manchester of Salford and Suburbs as an Engraver, living at 41 Haddon Street, in Gorton. The follow year Enos died, in 1930, in Levenshulme, Manchester. His wife Emily then returned to Haslingden to be near her sons Jack and Enos after her husband's death, until she died in 1939.
Census records show that John Staveley was born around 1838 in Horwich, Lancashire and is believed to be the son of William Staveley (b. 1807) of Aysgarth Yorkshire, and Bridget REGAN. John married Elizabeth SEDDON May 27, 1858 at Eccles, St. Mary's, just prior to the birth of his first daughter Lavinia. In 1861 the family is found residing as follows:
1861: 20 Rose Hill View, Pendleton, Salford, Lancashire, England
|John STAVELEY||Head||M||Male||23||Horwich, Lancashire, England||Book Binder Journeyman|

|Levina STAVELEY||Dau||U||Female||2||Pendlebury, Lancashire, England||Scholar|

By 1871 this family has relocated to Burnley.
In 1871 William and Bridget's son James (b. 1846) is residing with his wife Mary Ann GATWARD in Salford. James and Mary Ann were married in 1866 at Pendleton St. Thomas:

By 1881 James and Mary have relocated to Barton Upon Irwell.
George Staveley (b. 1832) was born in Chorley, the son of William of Aysgarth and Bridget. George Staveley married Sarah MOSS in 1854 at Eccles, St. Mary's. George is living in Salford between 1861-1871:
1861: 11 Waddington Street, Blackfriars, Salford, Lancashire, England
|George STAVELEY||Lodger||M||Male||29||Chorley, Lancashire, England||Book Binder|
|Sarah STAVELEY||Lodger||M||Female||28||Eccles, Lancashire, England||Cotton Weaver|
In 1871, Sarah's mother and two brothers are residing in George's household:
1871: 11 Hallon Street, Pendleton, Salford, Lancashire, England
|George STAVELEY||Lodger||M||Male||29||Chorley, Lancashire, England||Book Binder|

Frederick W. Staveley was born in 1870 to William Staveley and Caroline SCHOFIELD of Prestwich, Lancashire. Frederick is the Grandson of William Staveley and Bridget REGAN of Aysgarth. In 1891 Frederick is residing with his father in Ancoats, and by 1901 is found in Salford:
1901: 134 Weaste Lane, Pendleton, Salford, Lancashire, England
|Frederic W. STAVELEY||Son||U||Male||31||Salford, Lancashire, England||Merchant of Cotton Goods|
It is believe that Frederic married Annie EGLIN in 1893 in Manchester, but Annie is not at home during the 1901 census. There is an Annie Staveley, married, aged 30 and born in Manchester, visiting the household of Annie WADE in St. Anne on the Sea, Lancashire in 1901 who may turn out to be Frederic's wife.
The following children were born to Thomas Staveley (b. 1840) and Sarah Ann HARLOW. Thomas was the son of William Staveley and Bridget REGAN. In 1861 Thomas and his wife are residing with Sarahs' parents in Worsley. In 1871 Thomas and Sarah are still living in Worsley, with the same Staveley children listed below. However, it is clear that by 1877 Thomas and Sarah must have divorced, as Sarah had married a William HORROCKS by that time. Although Thomas was not located in the 1881 census, he is clearly not deceased by then, as he is residing with his brother William in 1891 in Ancoats.

Arthur was educated at the Strawberry Road Board School in Pendleton in the mid-1890s. By 1909 Edwin and Mary Ann had moved to 21 Edmund St., Seedley. Son Arthur married Fanny SMITH in 1915. In 1917 he enlisted with the Army Ordinance Corps, and received his training at Woolwich and Devonport. He was sent to Mesopotamia, and stationed in the region of Basra. He contracted Malaria and was treated at the Deolali War Hospital in India. He then returned to Mesopotamia in November 1918, and remained there until October 1919 when Turkey signed an armistice, ending the conflict in that region. Arthur was awarded the general service Victory Medal. It is unknown if Arthur and Fanny had any children.
Arthur's brother, Harry Staveley, was killed in Somme, France on May 13th, 1917 at the young age of 24 (see Medal Cards). Harry was a 'Sapper' in the Royal Engineers during World War 1 (the term 'Sapper' means Military Engineer):
