Eustace
FitzEustace

El apellido es anglo-normando, pero nacionalizado en Irlanda por su larga asociación con este país. O'Hart dice por su parte que es de origen irlandés del tronco de los O´Brien, descendientes sus miembros de MacIusdas, que a su vez lo era de Donchadh, hijo de Brian Boroimhe (Boru), nº 105 en el pedigree de aquel importante clan, que fue el de los reyes de Thomond.

Coghlan no registra en San Pedro el apellido Eustace en el censo de 1869 ni en la PBsAs en 1855. En la lista de pasajeros hay un Eustace J. procedente de Dublin, el 6.1.1857 en el barco W. Wilch.

Origen: Irlandés. Prineros encontrados en Co. Meath, Wicklow y Wexford, donde ellos fueron Barones de Meath y posteriormente llegaron a ser Vizcondes de Baltinglass. When the Anglo- Normans began to settle in Ireland, they initially ignored the established Gaelic system for developing of patronymic names, and relied on their own traditional naming practices. Eventually, however, the two differing customs drew upon one another to some degree. The Anglo- Normans, unlike their Gaelic neighbors, frequently used nickname surnames. These Anglo-Norman nicknames were frequently of two types: "oath names" and "imperative names." Oath names often carried blessings or were formed from habitual expressions. Imperative names, formed from a verb added to a noun or an adverb, metaphorically described the bearer's occupations. The nick name surname Eustace is derived from a nickname for a Iustas, indicating a fruitful person. This perhaps refers to someone with many offspring, or with extraordinary agricultural or material wealth. The Latin form Eustachius was originally derived from a Greek word which means fruitful. First found in Kildare, where they held a family seat from ancient times.
