The origins of the Staplie name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Staplie was originally derived from a family having lived in the settlement of Stapeley in Cheshire, or in the place called Stapley in Hampshire. The surname Staplie belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Stephen Stapley settled in Norfolk Virginia in 1823.
