North Riding of Yorkshire

Thus far five primary groups of Staveleys found in the North Riding of Yorkshire.  The Husthwaite, Ripon and Thormanby lines appear to interconnect.  However, the Wensley group is split between two apparently distinct Staveley occupations.  These distinctions are made based upon available recorded evidence.  There is a line that appears to originate in Wensley at least by the early 1500's that established families in West Witton, East Witton and Aysgarth.  A second group originated from the Sedbergh line and arrived in Wensleydale by the mid 1800's establishing families in Askrigg and Hawes.
