    Of "Dutch" ancestry, and Methodist faith.

    The origins of the family go back to Germany but it is not clear from just where. There may have been inner-family conflicts resulting from both the American revolution and the war of 1812 which led to some members moving (fleeing?) to Canada (some were apparently UEL) and others staying in the US.

    PS: Here is some information from a son of Peter (Boltes' brother) about the family:

    The Aylmer Express, March 1, 1934, page 8
    The Staleys came from New York state, near Albany. For a time some of his father's [i.e. Peter Staley] brothers and other relatives lived on Grand Island in the Niagara River. Some of the brothers went to Markham, and one to Talbot Street west of Aylmer. Sam's father and mother were on a visit to the Aylmer brother, when he fell in with Father Pettys, a travelling preacher, then living on the farm now occupied by Orland Wall. Father Pettys, needing some family on the farm to look after the work, bargained successfully with Peter. Peter Staley, wife and two children arrived at the Pettys farm on the 21st of February [1844], and that night Samuel was born.
