Thornton Curtis, Lincolnshire

William Staveley was born in St. Mary Castlegate, York in 1799.  He and his wife Amelia ABRAHAM briefly lived in Cambridgeshire shortly after they married in 1825, and in 1828 appear to have moved to Thornton Curtis in time for the birth of their first son Edward.  William and Amelia appear to have remained in Thornton for some time, as six of their children were baptized in the parish as follows:

Edward Staveley b. September 29, 1828 Thornton Curtis, Lincolnshire  
Margaret Staveley b. August 28, 1831 Thornton Curtis, Lincolnshire Buried Oct 15, 1843*
Charles Staveley b. February 1, 1833 Thornton Curtis, Lincolnshire  
Abraham Willinson Staveley b. June 26, 1834 Thornton Curtis, Lincolnshire  
Walter Paul Staveley b. April 16, 1836 Thornton Curtis, Lincolnshire Buried April 22, 1844*
Emma Staveley b. March 4, 1838 Thornton Curtis, Lincolnshire Buried April 22, 1844*


After Emma was born, the family briefly moved to Beverley, Yorkshire, and then on to Barton Upon Humber.  Note that the children indicated with (*) above were all buried in Barton.

William and Amelia's son Edward married Annie BLAND and had three children in Dundee, Scotland before settling in Sheffield, Yorkshire.
