Surnames: Key

I am searching for the ancestors of Thomas Key b.1643 in Standon, Staffordshire, England; christened 3rd Dec 1643 in All Saints Church Standon, Staffordshire, England; d.1695 in Standon, Staffordshire, England; buried 28 Jun 1695 at All Saints Church in Standon, Staffordshire, England. Married 2 Feb 1666 in Standon, Staffordshire, England to Mary Cotton b.1642 in Standon, Staffordshire, England; christened 24 Jul 1642 in All Saints Church Standon, Staffordshire, England.
It is very tempting to link Thomas to the Key family of  Settrington, East Riding, Yorkshire, England, but I can find no evidence of that link. Standon, Staffordshire is a long way from Settrington, Yorkshire.   Does anyone have a definitive link?
Alternately there might be a Key family from Lancashire or Cheshire from which Thomas descends. Does anyone have any information to make that link?
