Origin: The name Stapelton (as it was invariably spelt before Richard the Second?s time) is Anglo-Saxon. It means a 'trading village;' 'stapel,' a pile or heap, denoting a place where goods were collected and stored for sale?Dr. Johnson defines it, a 'mart or emporium'?and 'tun,' an inclosure or town. It was appropriate to a village like Stapelton, conveniently situated for commerce, on the border-line between the two provinces of Deira and Bernicia, at a point where the river was passable. But the term 'stapel,' or 'staple,' has long since lost its former signification. From being first applied to the place where goods were sold, it was next given to the merchandise sold there, and is now usually understood to mean the product for which the place is best known. The 'tun' was surrounded by an earthen mound tipped with a stockade or quickset hedge, with a ditch outside, and each township was thus a ready-made fortress in time of war.

Origin: Some of the noblest families of France have been those whose names have been in the Huguenot history. For centuries prior to the reformation their names had become famed for distinguished services. One of these old famous French names is DuPuy, or it is also spelled, DePue, DuPuis, DuPew, Depuy, DePuis, DuPue and Depew. It is mentioned in the history of the county in the eleventh century, and was found in the southeastern section where LePuy, two hundred and seventy miles a little southeast of Paris, is the capital town of Haute-Loire, province of Languedoc. In the tenth century its name was Podium Sauctae Mariae, and it sent the flower of its chivalry to the crusades in 1096. Joining Haute-Loire on the northwest is the department of Puy de Lonie, province of Auvergue. Louis Moverie (1643-80), a French historian, says 'DuPuy is an old house prolific of illustrious men.' It is almost certain it had its origin in France. In 1033, when Conrad II. united to the German Em! pire two burgundies, he appointed Raphael DuPuy, who held the office of commander of the Roman cavalry and grand chamberlain of the Roman Republic as governor of the conquered province of Languedoc and Dauphiny, whose descendants became possessors of many fine estates.
