    The Stapylton family is one of great repute and antiquity in thecounty. They take their surna me from Stapleton-on-Tees, where theypossessed lands previous to the Conquest. The first of w hom any recordhas been preserved was Heryon, or Herman, who held the manor ofStapleton in 105 2, and was father of Alan de Stapylton, who was livingin 1080. Sir John, his grandson, was lo rd of Stapleton, andcomptroller of the household to King Stephen. Sir Miles Stapylton,Knight , the next in descent, fought under the st
    andard of the Cross, in Palestine, and, on his return, marriedPendoras, daughter of the Kin g of Cyprus. After three descents cameanother Sir Nicholas, who distinguished himself in th e wars of Gasconyand Scotland, in the reigns of the first and second Edwards, and wassummone d to parliament, as a baron, in 1313. His son, Sir MilesStapylton, second baron, was summone d to parliament in 1342. Hemarried Sibill, a niece and coheir of Peter de Brus, who brought h imthe manor of Carlton. He was involved in the insurrection of Thomas,Earl of Lancaster, an d was fined 2,000 marks to save his life, but thefine was remitted by Edward III. in the firs t year of his reign.

Ofanother of this family, Sir Bryan Stapylton, K.G., it i s related that"the King of England and the King of Cyprus being present, he foughtwith a Sara cen, faith for faith, whom, by the grace of God and hisvalour, he did kill. For which cause h e did desire for the reward ofhis valour, of Edward III., then present, nothing else but tha t he andhis heirs, in memoryof the victory, should carry for their crest thehead of a Saracen ." Sir Robert Stapylton, of Wighill, Knight, whenhigh sheriff of Yorkshire, in 1581, met th e judges with seven scoremen, in suitable liveries.
