Name Meaning

variant of Stower, with post-medieval excrescent -s, itself a variant of Storr . In some cases Stower is also a habitational name from Stour Provost, East and West Stour, or Stourpaine (Dorset), named from the River Stour (see above). The name may also have originated from the Norman French personal name Stur (Old Norse Sture, of uncertain etymology but possibly related to stórr ‘big’), but it is not known if this survived as a hereditary surname.
