George Staveley was born in 1843, son of Samuel Staveley and Ann GIBSON of Reighton. George married Elizabeth FOSTER in 1864 and settled in Southburn, in the parish of Kirkburn.  George died in 1879, and his widow eventually remarried in 1884 to Robert MARTIN and settled in Tibthorpe.

Elizabeth's daughter Sarah Jane married a George Henry BARR in 1897 of Thwing, Yorkshire, and is settled in Boynton, Yorkshire by 1901 with three children, Beatrice, Elsie, and William.

In 1891 Elizabeth's daughter Eliza is a servant in the Hudson household, at Tranmer's Farm in Wansford, Yorkshire.  Eliza died two years later, in 1893, at the age of 21 years.

Daughter Ada is working in Nafferton, as a domestic at Church Farm (part of the Vicarage), in the employ of the Jeffersons.  As George Staveley above was born in Nafferton, it is suspected that he was born out of wedlock to Ada. Unfortunately, little George died just a few months after this census was taken, aged 2 years.

Daughter Ada married in 1899 to John HILL of Kirbymorside, and settled in Foston, Yorkshire by 1901 with two children Donald and Beatrice.

By 1901 Elizabeth and Robert have moved back to Kirkburn, along with two of their STAVELEY grandchildren.
