A single person's name was often spelt simply as it sounded by medieval scribes and church officials. An investigation into the specific origins the name Stackpole has revealed that such a practice has resulted in many spelling variations over the years. A few of its variants include: Stackpoole, Stackpool, Stackpole, Stacpoole and others.

First found in Pembrokeshire (Welsh: Sir Benfro), a county in south-west Wales, anciently part of the Welsh kingdom of Deheubarth, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, as Lords of the manor of Stackpoole, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

In the 1840s, Ireland experienced a mass exodus to North America due to the Great Potato Famine. These families wanted to escape from hunger and disease that was ravaging their homeland. With the promise of work, freedom and land overseas, the Irish looked upon British North America and the United States as a means of hope and prosperity. Those that survived the journey were able to achieve this through much hard work and perseverance. Early immigration and passenger lists revealed many bearing the name Stackpole:

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Pro Deo et pro patria
Motto Translation: For God and for Country.
