Nafferton, Yorkshire

The Staveleys of Nafferton appear to be directly related to the Staveleys of Kirkburn.  Isaac Staveley of Kirkburn married Ann PEIRCY in Leven on July 3, 1748.  They had seven children in Kirkburn, and by 1764 are found residing in Nafferton when their daughter Anne was christened:

Anne Staveley b. June 17, 1764 Nafferton


Michael Staveley was born in Kirkburn, and is the eldest son of Isaac Staveley and Ann PEIRCY.  Michael appears to have married Mary RANSOM in Nafferton by 1773, and had a son Michael b. June 9, 1773.  It then seems that Michael married Penelope JEFFERSON on January 5, 1776 in Nafferton, and had a son Isaac b. July 17, 1776.  Michael and Penelope then move to Harpham.

Isaac and Ann's daughter Dinah Staveley married Richard TAYLOR in Nafferton on June 13, 1776.

Son Isaac is thought to have married Ann PORDON in North Dalton in 1779.
