Haslingden, Lancashire

A branch of the Staveley family from Aysgarth, Yorkshire relocated to Higher Booths from Ardwick, Manchester by 1858.  Most of this family remained in the Haslingden area, but maintained some ties to Manchester at least through the end of the second world war (see Bacup).

There are at least three separate Staveley families that managed to find their way to Burnley.  One family originated from the Askrigg/Hawes line, originally from Sedbergh/Dent.  Another came from Horwich/Worsley, Lancashire and also descended from the Aysgarth line.  The origins of a third family found in Burnley during the mid-late 1800's has yet to be determined, but a branch of the family was found in Quebec, Canada in the mid 1900's.
