Above you will find a link to a German Stapf family, that is very interesting. I am in search of the "original" coat of arms and have seen a number of them. I believe that J.B. Rietstap's is the oldest out there, and these Deutschlanders have put one of the illustrations on their website.

When you get to the website, click on the "Welcome to the homepage of..." and it will take you to the English text site. The "name giving" link on the left is especially interesting because I have heard this story, but haven't ever really heard the full story.
