John Stamer was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in 1296 and a few years later, Robert le Stamere was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of 1327. The name is through to have been from Stanmore (Middlesex) or Stanmer (Sussex). [2]

Great Stanmore is a parish, in the union of Hendon, hundred of Gore, county of Middlesex and is best known as the location of "the first meeting, after the conclusion of the late war, of the Prince Regent and his illustrious guests the Emperor of Russia and the King of Prussia, with Louis XVIII." [3] Not far away, is Little Stanmore, a parish, in the union of Hendon, hundred of Gore.

Stanmer is a parish, in the union of Newhaven, hundred of Ringmer, rape of Pevensey, ion Sussex. [3]

Some sources claim the name is from the Old English stamera for stammerer, or from Old English stamerian 'to stammer'. [4]
