The Stalvers version of the name Stalvey has been researched by one Stalvey that I know of, Mr. Bennett Odom Stalvey, Jr. Last I talked to him he was living in Hendersonville, NC. I have some of these documents dating back to the early 90's. NO real connection was ever made to my knowledge only conjecture. His theory was that the name was originally Stalviers, and they left France on one of the earliest waves of the Huguenots after 1685, and after the Edict of Nantes. They then went to England where the name possibly evolved to Stalvers. There is a John Jacob Stolvare, Stalvior Stalvey land grant on record for 1773 in what is now Horry County. If anybody has ever found any records or information of our ancestors in Europe, please let me know.
