The roots of the distinguished German surname Stansal lie in the province of Silesia. The name is derived from "Stenz" or "Stenzel," both short forms of the personal name "Stenzlaw" or "Stanislaw," and indicates "son of Stenzel."

Stansal Early Origins



The surname Stansal was first found in Silesia, where the name is thought to have first emerged. It was frequent as both a surname and a personal name in most cities of the region, particularly in Liegnitz. The young Stansal family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of mediaeval Silesian society.
