STACPOOLE FAMILY HISTORY
The family has been in Ireland since the Twelfth Century but derives its name from the lordship of Stacpoole or Stackpole in Pembrokeshire. The Irish records from the Twelfth to the Sixteenth Centuries contain many references to Stacpooles in Cos. Cork, Dublin and Limerick. The Black Book of Limerick records that Gerald and Anastasia Stakepol were seated at Rossagh in Kenry, Co. Limerick in 1290 and were succeeded by Richard and Lucy Stakepol in 1299. Richard Stakepoll was chosen as Bishop of Limerick in 1486 but died in Rome before his consecration. The following Stacpooles were Provosts of Limerick: Maurice in 1492, Philip in 1500, Robert in 1513 and John in 1555. In addition Thomas was Bailiff of Limerick in 1559. See STACPOOLE – Burke’s Irish Family Records 1976 Edition and Stacpoole – The Owners of a Name by John Stacpoole published in 1991. The relationships of the early branches of the family are far from clear and, though there is no proof, it seems possible that there were two brothers who may have been sons of the John or Thomas Stacpoole mentioned above:
