The ancient history of the Stapely name begins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the family resided in the settlement of Stapeley in Cheshire, or in the place called Stapley in Hampshire. The surname Stapely belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Stapely Early Origins



The surname Stapely was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

Stapely Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Stapely include Stapeley, Stapley, Stapleigh, Stapliegh, Staplie and many more.
