STAUNTON Family History

This apparently English surname is nearly always Irish, although originally of English stock. It is understood to be one of the first, if not the first, of all English surnames in Ireland and according to the famous Irish Etymologist Edward MacLysaght they settled in Connaught after the Anglo-Norman Invasion of Ireland in the year 1170. Subsequently the Stauntons held the baronies of Clanmorris and Carra and many adopted the gaelic 'MacEvilly', which translates as 'The son of the knight'. However in the 16th century the MacEvilly's reverted to being called Staunton, to the point where MacEvilly or Evilly are now very rare surnames...
