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...
