The name Stopsley was believed to have been derived from scrobbale, according to Frederick Davis in a 1965 writing. Scrobbale in saxon is the same as scrapes and shrubsley in Norway and English, respectively, which means a hill covered with scrobbes.
However, modern etymology believed the name was derived from two elements, ‘Stopp’ and ‘Ley.’ They believe the ending part of the name is from the old English ‘Leah,’ which meant a wood a or clearing in wood, while ‘Stopp’ was the name of the man who owned the wood or clearing.
Initially a hill village, most of its urbanized part was joined to Luton in 1993 after the boundaries were extended, while its rural parts were joined to Streatley and Hyde.
