The surname Stacpoole 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.

Stacpoole Early Origins



The surname Stacpoole 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.

The Great Migration



Ireland went through one of the most devastating periods in its history with the arrival of the Great Potato Famine of the 1840s. Many also lost their lives from typhus, fever and dysentery. And poverty was the general rule as tenant farmers were often evicted because they could not pay the high rents. Emigration to North America gave hundreds of families a chance at a life where work, freedom, and land ownership were all possible. For those who made the long journey, it meant hope and survival. The Irish emigration to British North America and the United States opened up the gates of industry, commerce, education and the arts. Early immigration and passenger lists have shown many Irish people bearing the name Stacpoole: George Stackpool who settled in Maryland in 1742; John Stackpoole arrived in Canada in 1839; J.S. Stackpole landed in San Francisco in 1850; John, Patrick, and Paul Stackpole arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1853 and 1856..

Motto



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.
