Eustace Family HistoryRecorded in several forms as shown below, this early medieval surname is English, but a French introduction. It derives from the Roman (Latin) personal name Eustacius, itself from the similar Ancient Greek Eustakhios, and meaning "fruitful". St. Eustace was a Roman martyr who, while hunting near Tivoli was converted to christianity by a vision of a crucifix between the antlers of a hunted stag.
