John Robert Stavers was born on 15 June 1850 in Newcastle-upon Tyne. He was my second great grand uncle, the son of my 3x great grandparents Peter Stavers, cartman, and Margaret Young. John Robert was the youngest of their 7 children.

My 5x great grandparents, Caleb Nesbitt and Susannah Chator, were married on 22 May 1742 at St. John’s, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. This is one of the older dated events I have in my tree. Caleb and Susannah were parents of my 4x great grandmother Jane Nesbitt who married Adam Carr. I have not yet researched whether they had other children.
