The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 brought the Stapelr family name to the British Isles. They 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]

Staple Fitzpaine dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 and at that time was a small hamlet having a Mill and 100 goats. The original name of this hamlet was Estapla. The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 list the following: Alan le Stabler in Cambridgeshire; William le Stabler in Huntingdonshire; and Thomas le Stabeler in Lincolnshire. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Stapelr Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Stable, Stapler, Stables, Stabler, Stabyl, Stabil, Stabils, Stibils, Stibles and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Stapelr or a variant listed above: 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 " Kennebec.".
