The surname Stackpole is a habitational name from a place in Pembrokeshire called Stackpole, named for a stack of rocks on the coast at the entrance to Broadhaven.

The surname Stackpole was 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.

Medieval scribes and church officials spelled the names as they sounded, so a name was often spelled many different ways during the lifetime of a single person. The investigation of the origin of the name Stackpole revealed many spelling variations including Stackpoole, Stackpool, Stackpole, Stacpoole and others.

The Irish emigration during the late 18th and 19th century contributed to the melting pot of nationalities in North America, and the building of a whole new era of industry and commerce in what was seen as a rich, new land. Ireland's Great Potato Famine resulted in the worst economic and social conditions in the island's history. And in response to the hunger, disease, and poverty, during this decade the total number of emigrants to leave for North America rivaled all the previous years combined. Those from this decade that arrived on North American shores were not warmly welcomed by the established population, but they were vital to the rapid development of the industry, agriculture, and infrastructure of the infant nations of the United States and what would become Canada. Research into early immigration and passenger lists has shown many people bearing the name Stackpole:
