    Name Meaning

    English (Kent and Sussex): habitational name from a lost place called Stapele recorded in the 13th century in the manor of Wootton in East Chiltington (Sussex). The placename probably derives from Old English stapol ‘post, pillar’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’; the reference may have been to a place where timber was got for posts.
