Staveley/Stevelly (Co Cork)

The Staveley genealogy states that Robert Staveley, a linen merchant, was born in county Antrim in 1716 and married Sarah Jones in 1745. This couple settled in Cork and had at least 12 children. Their eldest son Robert moved to live in Dublin, their daughter Grace was the grandmother of William Smith O'Brien and other family members remained in Cork. At the time of Griffith's Valuation the Staveleys held land in the parishes of Athnowen, barony of East Muskerry and Mourneabbey, barony of Barretts. In the 1870s the Reverend George Stavely of Dublin owned 277 acres and John Stavely of Ovens owned 307 acres in county Cork. see http://www.staveley-genealogy.com/cork.htm
