This family appears to have some connection with the Staveleys of Hull.  It is believed that Walter and Frances Matilda may be the children of Francis Clayton Staveley.  It is unclear if Mary listed below may be Francis' first wife Mary HAMMOND, or his second, Mary FEATHERSTONE as it is unclear whether his first wife died, or if he was divorced prior to his second marriage.  His daughter Frances Matilda Staveley married William WHITTON on February 5, 1848 in Hull.

Note that in 1861 son Walter C. Staveley is a lodger in Hull employed as a Stationer's assistant.

1881: Ch Rd 8 Lavender Cotts, Mitcham, Surrey, England

 Frances WHITTON   Daur   W   Female   56   Woodstock, Oxford, England   Annuitant 


Note that in 1881 Matilda is now listed as Frances, and gives her place of birth as Woodstock in Oxfordshire.  This seems to fit with the known birth of a Frances Staveley christened in Woodstock in 1822, the daughter of Francis Clayton Staveley.

Mary Staveley died in Surrey not long after the census was taken, at the age of 88 years, in the September quarter 1881.

Mary's son Walter Calvert Staveley never married and died the following year in Surrey in 1882 at the age of 48 years
