STAPLETON Family History

Recorded as Stapleton, Stapletun, and Stapletone, this is an ancient and noble English locational surname. It is also recorded in both Scotland and Ireland, although again the origination is from England. It originates from any of the various places called Stapleton in the counties of Cumberland, Gloucestershire, Hereford, Leicester, Shropshire, Somerset and particularly Yorkshire where various branches held great estates from medieval times. The earliest recording of the place name is to found in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Stapletone, Staplentun, and Stapleton. With exception of the Somerset place name, all appear to derive from the Olde English pre 7th century words 'stapol', meaning a boundary post or possibly the meeting place of the local court or parish council, and 'tun', a hamlet or settlement...

    Hello all, I'm a Stapleton from the States (since ~1700s) attempting to track down the origin of our branch of the family. I'd love to exchange any helpful resources for tracing across the Atlantic!

    Hello. My Stapleton's seem to come from Ballyraget - I can't get back any further than that. Am I right thinking there's a bar there with the Stapleton name?

    My girlfriend is having me do her genealogy and her mother is a Stapleton. Her maternal grandfather, Sean Patrick Stapleton (1922-1977), was born in Thurles to Thomas Stapleton (1894-1984) and Brigid Phelan, who lived near or in Borrisoleigh. I am attempting to get more information for her family but it seems slow going seeing the consistency of naming children and the lack of records in Ireland. Sean eventually moved to Minnesota, and later to Vancouver, with his wife Harriet Schiltz and their children so most contact was lost between his extended family. Can anyone help?
