Origins Available: English, German


The name Stabler reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Stabler family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Stabler 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]CITATION[CLOSE]

Stabler Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Stabler family name include Stable, Stapler, Stables, Stabler, Stabyl, Stabil, Stabils, Stibils, Stibles and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Stabler family to immigrate North America:
