St. Margaret Moses, London

Luke Staveley b. October 18, 1740 is the son of William Staveley and Rosamunda CATTLE of Hunmanby, Yorkshire.  There appears to be some confusion regarding Luke's marriages and children, but it is known from his will that Luke married Elizabeth (Betty) MITCHELL in Halifax on May 17, 1780.  There is some question as to whether Luke was married previously to Mary FROUD, and some further investigation is required in that regard.  For now, however, we are aware from Luke's will, and the Halifax and St. Margaret Moses registers, of the following children born to him and his wife Elizabeth:

 Luke Mitchell Staveley b. July 27, 1781    St. Margaret Moses, London
 Maria Staveley b.    
 Elizabeth Staveley b. January 6, 1783 d. 1793*  St. Margaret Moses, London
 Ann Staveley b. February 17, 1784    St. Margaret Moses, London
 James Staveley b. April 19, 1785    St. Margaret Moses, London
 Susannah Staveley b.    Halifax, Yorkshire
 Jemimah Staveley b. August 14, 1791    
 Elizabeth Staveley b. abt 1792*    Camberwell, Surrey*
 John Staveley b. June 7, 1793    Halifax, Yorkshire
 Sarah Staveley b. abt. 1794*    Camberwell, Surrey*
 Henry Staveley b. May 16, 1795    Halifax, Yorkshire


Note: *years/location of birth approximate based upon entries recorded in the 1861 census in Halifax.

Records of birth have not been located for Maria, Susannah and Sarah, however each of them are mentioned in Luke's will.  It is apparent that by 1791 Luke and his wife have returned to live in Halifax.
