George Staveley (b. 1818) is the son of George and Dorothy of Aysgarth, Yorkshire.  In 1841 George's whereabouts are unknown, but his parents are found residing in Horwich during the 1841 census.  George (b. 1818) married Ellen HARRISON in 1847 in Horwich.  It appears from multiple census records that much of the Staveley family was likely living in Horwich around the mid-late 1840's.  George and Ellen are found living in Aspull by 1851:

It was initially unclear if this could have been a daughter of George and Ellen, however, Ann was actually a daughter of George's brother, Thomas, and is found residing in Golborne with her parents in the 1861 census.  Thomas and his first wife Ann PENDLEBURY had initially resided in Hindley shortly after their marriage, prior to moving to Golborne.

George and Ellen's niece, Ann Staveley, daughter of George's brother Thomas (b. 1816) is still a resident at the Leigh Union Workhouse in 1891.  Her father Thomas was last located in Golborne in 1881, but has not been located in the 1891 census:

***Two Harold's are listed as living in the household in 1901, three years apart in age.  It is presumed this was an error on the enumerator's sheet, even though the handwriting clearly states "Harold" for both boys.  Comparing this census to 1891 it seems that the eldest Harold listed here in 1901 should actually have been WALTER.

Wigan Examiner - December 27, 1913

Death of Mr. John Staveley

An old and highly-respected employee of Messrs Walker Bros., Pagefield Ironworks, died on Sunday evening, in the person of Mr. John Staveley, 58, Park-road Wigan. The deceased gentleman, who was sixty-five years of age, served his apprenticeship at the old Haigh Foundry, but for over forty years he has been with Messrs Walker Bros., and nearly the whole of that period he was in charge of the pattern department. Of a genial disposition, Mr. Staveley was held in high esteem by the employes at Pagefield Ironworks and by all who knew him.

The interment took place at Haigh Church on Wednesday, the Rev., W. E. Kingsbury, senior curate at the Wigan Parish Church, officiating. The coffin was of polished oak, and the plate bore the inscription: "John Staveley, died December 21 1913, aged 65 years".

The bearers, who were workmen engaged in the pattern shop at Pagefield Ironworks, were Messrs. James Walmsley, John Mort, Joseph Ball, Arthur Gibson, Will Rimmer, Ralph Rimmer, Joe Malady, and John Leyland.

Mr. E. R. Walker, Mr. Geo. L. Walker, and Mr. J. S. A. Walker represented the firm, and the following heads of departments were present: Messrs. L. Charnley, G. H. Souter, R. Seddon, J. H. Norris, E. Hall, S. Hall, S. Penson, W. Williamson, and W. Nicholls.

The chief mourners were Mrs. Staveley (widow), Mr. G. H. Staveley, Mr. W. E. Staveley, and Miss E? Staveley, Mr. H. Staveley and Miss L. Staveley, Mr. F. Staveley and Miss Ethel Staveley, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Tarver, Mr. J. H. and Mrs G. Staveley, Mr. Wm. Staveley, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Staveley and Thomas (son), Mr. and Mrs. Harper, and Mr. A. Reynolds.

Ambrose and in affectionate remembrance of an old friend of Walker Bros.

The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. John Proe of King street.

 

 

John Staveley's wife Jane (nee Highton) survived him by almost 25 years.  She died in Wigan on January 2,1938 and her son-in-law assisted with the funeral ceremonies.  John and Jane's eldest daughter, Amelia Jane Staveley, had married John Atkinson TARVER in 1902 at All Saints in Wigan.  By 1938 John A. Tarver was Rector of Ilderton Northumberland, as referenced in Jane's obituary below.

Mrs. Jane Staveley

January 8, 1938 - Obituary

PROMINENT WIGAN CHURCHWOMAN

Mrs. Jane Staveley

 

The death occurred on Sunday Morning at her residence, 3, Clifton-crescent, Wigan, of Mrs. Jane Staveley, widow of Mr. John Staveley, at the age of 84 years.

Her husband who predeceased her in 1913 was for a long period an official at Messrs. Walker Bros., Pagefield Ironworks, and was a member of a family long connected with Lord Crawford's Haigh Estate.

Although she had a serious operation some 12 years ago, and a rather serious illness two years ago, Mrs. Staveley had fully recovered and her long life was no doubt partly due to her wonderfully tranquil, contented and cheerful disposition. Her passing away on Sunday morning was, though rather sudden, quite peaceful.

Mrs. Staveley was a devout Churchwoman and was connected all her life with the Wigan Parish Church, which she attended regularly until she went to live in St. Michael's parish, when she became a member of St. Michael's congregation. For many years several of her sons were members of the Wigan Parish Church Choir, and all her children were educated at the National and Blue Coat School.

Although she was of a retiring disposition she interested herself all her life in the parochial affairs of the Parish Church and St. Michael's church, and she did a great deal of quiet church work.

The funeral took place on Wednesday.

The sympathy of a large circle of friends is being extended to her family, all of whom were present at the funeral except two daughters, who have lived for many years in the United States.

A service took place at the Wigan Parish Church and was conducted by the Rector, Canon W. O. Hunter rodwell, assisted by Mrs. Staveley's son-in-law, Rev. John A. Tarver, Rector of Ilderton, Northumberland.

The service was choral, and Mr. W. O. Minay, at the conclusion, played Mendelssohn's Funeral March.

The Rector, in a short address spoke of the beautiful character and exemplary life of Mrs. Staveley, and of her life-long devotion to the Parish Church. He said it had been a great privilege to him to minister to her at her home during the past year, and to administer to her the Holy Communion less than a week ago. In extending sympathy to the members of the family, he said he felt sure they would not sorrow as those without hope for their dear one who, after a long and beautiful life, had merely come to the end of the first stage of her pilgrimage, and had entered into that fuller and happier life for which the first stage was only a preparation.

The interment took place in the family grave at Haigh Church. Through the kindness of the Earl of Crawford, the cortege was permitted to pass through the grounds of his estate...

The mourners were Frank (son), Lilian and Ethel (daughters), Mrs. Tarver (daughter), Mr. and Mrs. G. Staveley, Mr. and Mrs. Jolley, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Staveley, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Staveley, Mr. H. Staveley, Mr. Jack Staveley, Miss D. Tarver, Mr. John Staveley (grandchildren), Mr. E. O. Staveley, Mr. S. Staveley (nephews), Mr. N. K. Smith, Mr. W. H. Tyrer, C.B.E., LL. B. (Town Clerk), and Mr. G. Deakin.

Amongst those present in Church were Mr. Ball, mother of the Mayer of Wigan, Mr. and Mrs. J. Hancock, Miss Moss, Miss Petitt, Miss R. Battye, Mr J. Battye, Mr J. B. Tyrer, Miss Moore, Miss Johnson, Miss True, Mr. J.H. Barker, Mrs. Bannister, Mrs. N. K. Smith, Mr and Mrs. J. McGuire, Mr. and Mrs. Winstanley, Mrs S.C. Randall and Eileen, Miss S. Jolley, Mrs. J.
