On the southern coast of Wales, about six miles from Pem-
broke, there rises a cokunnar mass of limestone, called The
.Stack Rock. It is at the mouth of an inlet or pool, which
is named from the Rock the Stack-pool. A Norman, said to
have been knighted by William the Conqueror, built his castle
on this inlet and was called Richard de Stackpol, since pol in
old English meant a pool of water. The castle has been remod-
eled more than once, yet the foundations remain the same, and
it has for about eight centuries borne the name of Stackpole
Court. It is at present the seat of the Earl of Cawdor. The
Stackpole coat of arms, as old as 1250, is a red rampant lion,
having a gold collar, on a silver shield. The lineage of the Pem-
brokeshire Stackpoles for two or three centuries is on record at
the College of Heraldry in London. It declares that Sir Robert
Stackpole went with Strongbow to the conquest of Ireland in
1 168. His descendants became numerous m Dublin, Cork and
Limerick, holding many official positions. Twenty mayors.
Aldermen and Recorders by the name of Stackpole are found in
the records of Limerick from 1450 to 1650.

James Stacpole (for the name was till within a century spelled
without a k) was born in 1652 and was probably a son of Philip
Stacpole of Limerick, Ireland. He was living in Dover, N. H.,
