Stabile History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Today's generation of the Stabile family bears a name that was brought to England by the migration wave that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Stabile family lived in Somerset. Their name, however, is a reference to Estaples, Normandy. Etaples is a small seaport on the French coast about 10 miles from Boulogne. Alternatively, the name could have been an occupational name for someone who works in a stable, or someone who lives near a stable. [1]

Migration of the Stabile family

In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Stabiles to arrive on North American shores: Edith Stable, who was on record in Virginia in 1674; as well as John and Mary Stabler of Sunderland, who arrived in New Orleans, LA on March 19, 1852 from Liverpool on the ".
