Last name origin & meaning:
Irish (of Welsh origin): habitational name from a place in
Pembrokeshire called Stackpole from a stack of rocks on the coast at
the entrance to Broadhaven, from which settlers of Norman descent made
their way into Ireland; probably derived from Old Norse stakkr ‘stack’ + polr ‘pool’. The name is recorded in Dublin as early as
1200, and has been Gaelicized as de Stacapúl; bearers were
also known as Galldubh ‘black stranger’.
