Other Surname Variations:
Several variations of the name have puzzled family historians.
In some cases, alternate spellings of the name have become
commonplace and actually appear to be separate families, which
they often are not.:
This variation appears in various early records. It is clearly
a variation of the surname Eustace. Captain William S.
Eustance trained as a boy on the S. S. Indefatigible and
during a career of more than 50 years afloat in Liverpool ships,
rose in rank from seaman to senior captain. For his many career
accomplishments, he was awarded the Order of the British Empire
Heustis & Huestis:
Research by the late EFA Master President Donald W. Eustace
has verified that Stacy is a shortened version of the name
Eustace. The name Stacy is fairly prevalent on all three
continents where we find Eustaces and other variants. We hope to
learn more of our Stacy connections in the future and to share
these with you.
