One of the earlier Staveley families to settle in Canada selected Quebec as their new home.  These Staveleys are from a family of architects descended from Edward Staveley (1795-1872) who arrived in North America from Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, in 1833.

In 1857 two brothers, John and Anthony from Dent, Yorkshire arrived in Peterborough County, Ontario.  John's family later settled in Michigan, and Anthony's family settled in Iowa, USA. Some of Anthony's children returned to Canada to settle in Saskatchewan, and later settled in Alberta.

Around 1866 a Henry Francis Staveley came to Saskatchewan.  His family originating in England, but arriving in Canada by way of Australia.

In the early 1900's the family of Walter Staveley and Eliza Hall of Nottinghamshire, settled in Battleford, Saskatchewan.

By the eve of World War I part of the family of John Thomas Staveley and Hannah Winter settled in Quebec arriving from Burnley, Lancashire.  The earlier origins of this Burnley line however, are as yet undetermined.
