A second, unrelated Staveley family resided in Everton in 1861 and 1881, but are found living in West Derby 1871.  Alfred Eldon Staveley is the son of Francis Staveley and Mary FEATHERSTONE of Hull, Yorkshire:

By 1871 Jessie Elizabeth married Thomas FLEET in West Derby

1881: 59 Shallcross St, Everton, Lancashire, England

 Alfred E. STAVELLEY   Head   M   Male   51   Hamp (Hunt?)  Commercial Clerk 
 Mary E. STAVELLEY   Wife   M   Female   49   Plymouth

 Ada STAVELLEY   Daur      Female   14   Liverpool   Cigar Maker 
 Francis STAVELLEY   Son      Male   10   Liverpool   Scholar 

In 1881 Alfred's place of birth is very difficult to decipher on the enumerator's transcript.  It was once thought the entry read "Hamp" as an abbreviation for Hampshire, however, on closer inspection it is possible to discern "Hunt" as an abbreviation for Huntingdon on the original record...and this would fit more closely with his entry from 1871 where he gives his place of birth as Godmanchester, Huntingdon.  Alfred and Mary's daughter Rose Eliza Staveley married a sailor by the name of William Henry CARVER on December 31, 1875 in West Derby.  In 1881 Rose's family is also living in Everton:

1881: 48 Laith St, Everton, Lancashire, England

 William H. CARVER   Head   M   Male   26   Tranmere, Cheshire, England   Sailor 
 Rose CARVER   Wife   M   Female   25   Liverpool, Lancashire, England

 George A. CARVER   Son      Male   2   Liverpool, Lancashire, England    
 Alfred CARVER   Son      Male   2 m   Liverpool, Lancashire, England    


In 1881 Henry Pawson Staveley, son of William Norrington Staveley and Margaret HIGHTON, is residing in West Derby.  Henry married Jane MONTGOMERY in 1882 in Liverpool, and by 1891 we find them in Everton.
