The Research of history for the STYMIEST family surname has been an exciting 50+year venture taking me to many wonderful archives, libraries and continents all over the globe. Special acknowledgements to my late father, Carlyle (Bud) William Stymiest, (New Brunswick, Canada); and his late brother, Donald Garfield Stymiest, (Ontario, Canada) for their assistance in motivation me when I was 16 years of age to complete this pursuit. I also acknowledge the knowledgeable Dr. Louise Manny of Miramichi, News Brunswick, CANADA who mentored me while I worked as an assistant librarian during my high school years. She was the person who taught me how to Source research and Journal my entries even before i became a Professional Genealogist in the early 2000s.
In the beginning, the notes from my cousin, Eldon James Stymiest (Tabusintac, Northumberland County, New Brunswick, Canada) was my other initial inspiration to seek-out the illusive pre-North American STYMIEST surname. After numerous hours researching the archives in Canada, the United States,South Africa, Southeastern Asia and Europe; 32 Stymiest generations have been ascertained; all of which tell their own story.
Did you know there are over 112+ different STYMIEST surname spellings?
As "KEEPER/RECORDER" of the STYMIEST DATABASE RECORDS, please feel free to forward me any NEW information... births, deaths, marriages, etc for our budding and still-growing Stymiest Database which is over 68,000 Ancestors and Descendants at present.
The present surnames spelled Stymiest, Stymeist, Stymest, Stymast, Stymus, Stymst are but a few of the earlier surname variants of the 112 spelling noted to date. in the early 1500 -1600s the surname was written as Steynmets, Steinmetz, Steijn, Steyn.
The surname comes from "STONEMASON", in reference to their TOPOGRAPHIC name. "Mark the day with white Stone" ((albo lapillo notare diem)) was the Family Crest Motto since the 1500s.
North German, Dutch, and Scandinavian: from sten 'stone', hence a topographic name for ... name for someone who worked with stone: a quarryman, stonecutter, or stonemason. The Swedish surname probably originated as a soldier's name.
