I 

ORIGIN 

Sometime during the tenth century the Danes con- 
quered the southern coast of Wales and remained long 
enough to give to about thirty places names which still 
remain. One of them was Stakepol, derived from the 
Danish stak, meaning a heap or pile. Many piles of rock 
around the coast of Great Britain are called Stack Rocks. 
The letter k was not used in the old Saxon language, neither 
is it found in Welsh and Irish, yet the old spelling, Stakepol, 
persisted for centuries. 

The Normans, too, used the letter k but little. Clerk is 
in both Saxon and Norman clerc. The combination of c 
and k as in stack, is due to the insertion of a k in such words 
as stacking, stacked, etc., where without a k the sound of s 
would be given to c, coming before i and e.* 

Pol in old English, and pwll in Welsh, means a pool of 
water. Hence the small inlet back of the Stack Rock, at 
Broadhaven, was called Stakepol, and perhaps it was pro- 
nounced in three syllables. The place gave origin to the 
surname, which in the oldest records is always written 
de Stakepol, after the Norman style. The Normans made 
their first permanent settlement in Pembrokeshire about the 
year 1091, A.D., and within the next fifteen years all the 
southern part of Pembrokeshire was occupied by them. It 
has long been known as Little England Beyond Wales. The 
founder of the Stackpole family must have settled here 
about that time. Who was he ? 

In the first edition of this book a tradition was pub- 
lished concerning a GUILLAUME de MONTVALAI, who 

*Roemer's Origins of the English People and of the English Lan- 
guage, pp. 129, 314.

came over in the train of William the Conqueror and was 
assigned an estate in Horsham, Sussex, not far from the 
battlefield of Hastings. No mention of such a man has been 
found in history, nor of his son, Richard. These were, 
probably, fanciful creations of Count George Stacpoole of 
Paris, and he persuaded the College of Heraldry to publish, 
in 1776, a genealogical account of the early Pembrokeshire 
Stakepols, in which there is but little historical truth. 

Before the Norman Conquest no surnames existed in 
England. They were just beginning to come into use in 
France. Many surnames arose from names of places in 
which families lived. This was especially true of the 
nobility. Such is the origin of the surname Stakepol, and 
it dates back certainly to the end of the eleventh century. 
Very few surnames are as old. The historian, Freeman, 
smiles at the claim of some families, in search of an ancient 
ancestry, to a surname dating before the Conquest. 

A recent historian* says, "The name Stackpool was at 
first the designation of an inlet near the Stack, a project- 
ing rock at its mouth, and the first Norman settler, Sir 
Elidur, called himself De Stackpool. The spelling Stack- 
pole is incorrect and misleading." He says again, "On a 
creek, sheltered and woody, Stackpool Court, on the site of 
a castle founded by the Norman, Elidur de Stackpole, 
eleventh century, formerly belonging to the Lorts, now to 
the Earl of Cawdor." 

The description given by Richard Fenton in 1810 is so 
interesting that it is here copied at length. In a footnote 
he adds, "Notwithstanding the modern spelling of the name, 
I have taken the liberty to write it as above on the authority 
of the MS referred to, and the most ancient documents I 
have consulted." His description is as follows : — 

"Stackpool Court, the elegant seat of Lord Cawdor, 
undoubtedly took its name, and so I find it noted in a MS. I 
have had access to in the Bodleian Library, from the Stack 
rock at the mouth of the pool or estuary of Broadhaven, 
at the head of which it stands. The house is situated on

Wales, by Thomas Nicholas. Vol. II, pp. 897, 836. London, 1875. 



ORIGIN y 

the western side of the water, on a fine eminence at the 
edge of a bold declivity, and before it yielded to the present 
noble edifice had partly a castellated form, though it had 
been for a century before, by every addition and alteration 
it experienced, gradually losing its ancient and honorable 
baronial character and moulding itself to the fashion of 
the times. However, there can be no doubt of its retain- 
ing much of its castle strength and massiveness at the time 
of the civil wars, as it was fortified and garrisoned for the 
king; for in the account given by the parliamentary forces 
of the siege they say, "The walls were so strong that the 
ordnance did but little execution." It surrendered on 
quarter, and sixty soldiers completely armed were found in 
the house. 

The mansion now occupying the same site, of wrought 
limestone, was built by the grandfather of the present noble 
possessor who was son of Sir Alexander Campbell, of 
Cawdor Castle in Scotland, the first of the name who set- 
tled here, by marrying Miss Lort, the sole heiress of this 
great property. Though there have been objections to the 
heaviness of its architecture, it is a large and magnificent 
pile and well adapted to its site. It has two fronts, the 
principal facing phe pleasure grounds and the grand ap- 
proach ; the othei* looking over a fine piece of water at the 
foot of the slope it stands on to the park. You enter the 
latter from a terrace of great breadth, extending the length 
of it, and after descending a flight of steps, continued on a 
lower level the whole length of a spacious conservatory, fur- 
nished with a choice collection of the rarest shrubs and 
plants. On the opposite side is the park, of great compass 
and well stocked with deer. The hills skirting the lake by 
the house and forming its boundary are richly wooded in 
every direction, as are the pleasure grounds and shrubbery 
in front, beyond which, but completely hid, are the gardens, 
including the hot-houses, on an immense scale. A charm- 
ing piece of water admirably planned now fills the vale 
under the house, which, till this change of late years took 
place, crept an inconsiderable stream, checked with reeds 
and osiers all the way to the place where it felt and was 



10 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

lost in the tide. The dam for altering the level, necessary 
to unite the water, is happily hid under an elegant bridge 
of eight arches, connecting the grounds on the side of the 
mansion with the park. The lake is most abundantly 
stocked with aquatic wild-fowl of every sort if wild they 
may be called that collect at a call and come in flocks to dry 
land to be fed like barn-door poultry. 

The house is distributed into a number of very noble 
apartments, and the library is large and well furnished. 
In one of the rooms, hung round with family pictures, there 
is a portrait whole length of Lord Cawdor, by Sir Joshua 
Reynolds, and of Lady Cawdor by William Breechey; and 
in an adjoining room an original portrait of the late Lord 
Holland. The offices are all well arranged, and the stables 
forming a detached quadrangular building are in a style 
of princely pretension. Of Stackpool, without straining 
compliment, it may be safely said that there are few places 
which display more magnificence without or more sump- 
tuous hospitality and elegant comfort within. 

This, like all baronial residences in the country, had its 
mill, an inseparable appendage on the little stream below 
it, though long since swept away ; but of which Giraldus has 
left a memorable record, as connected with a most ludicrous 
story he relates. But to sum up the importance of Stack- 
pool it stands in the midst of a contiguous property of 
fifteen thousand acres of the most valuable land without the 
intervention of one incapable of cultivation. 

The first possessor of Stackpool we hear of was Sir 
Elidur or Leonard de Stackpool, who stands at the head 
of all pedigrees of his name ; the same whom Giraldus men- 
tions and who, no doubt, took the cross at the time Bald- 
win made his transit through this country preaching the 
crusade. From him not more than two descents were cast 
before the great possessions of this family fell amongst 
daughters, the co-heiresses of Sir Richard Stackpool, one of 
whom, Joan, who had Stackpool to her share, married Sir 
Richard Vernon of Hodnet in Staffordshire. While the 
estate remained in that name I do not find any of them 
residing in the old baronial mansion, nor do we find it reg- 



ORIGIN 11 

ulaiiy inhabited again till the year 1536 (for then the Ver- 
nons owned it) , about which time the Lorts got possession 
of it, but whether by marriage or purchase I know not. 
In the family of Lort it continued till its union with that of 
Campbell, as I have said before, in the person of Sir Alex- 
ander Campbell, whose great grandson, Lord Cawdor, now 
enjoys it. 

A younger son of this house, most likely a brother of 
the crusader, was one of the adventurers who joined Strong- 
bow on his expedition to Ireland; and settling there laid 
the foundation of a family of some rank in the county of 
Clare, where his descendants still continue, and by one of 
whom Lord Cawdor's grandfather was presented with two 
prints, one of a warrior taken I suppose from some monu- 
ment ; the other of a dignified clergyman of the same family, 
with some short account of it since its migration from 
Pembrokeshire. 

Cross the bridge to the park from which you have a 
delightful view of the house, as in the annexed plate, from 
the elegant pencil of Lady Cawdor, appears. A pleasant 
ride along the park brings me to the respectable village 
of Stackpool having its cross, where the ancient Lord's vas- 
sals resided, within the reach of his arbitrary call in war or 
peace to render their services, and where the present Lord's 
happier tenantry live in habitations that bespeak a degree 
of comfort and independence, which can not be felt and 
enjoyed as it ought but by a contrast with the humiliating 
picture of the feudal age. 

Hence I descend to a vale on the right, where a private 
gate was unlocked, leading through a woody avenue to the 
church of Cheriton, or as it is sometimes called Stackpool- 
Ehdur from its founder, which stands at the head of this 
sequestered dell. The church is a plain building, but with 
a tower, consisting of a nave and chancel, having two small 
aisles on the south side, one occupied by the family pew, 
and the other entered from the chancel the family burying 
place ; and on the north side of the chancel, under a wrought 
canory of stone, lies a cross-legged knight, his right hand 
on h-s sword and his left bearing his shield, evidently once 



12 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

painted over with his arms; and there can be no doubt of 
his representing Elidur de Stackpool. The sides of the 
tomb are in compartments, each compartment containing a 
figure, but so disfigured by white-wash with which the 
champion of the cross, as well as every other part of the 
monument, has been so plastered and replastered, that noth- 
ing of their character or design can be made out. On the 
south side of the chancel, but not under a canopy, is the 
effigy of a lady, well executed in a hard yellowish stone, in 
a very singular costume particularly the headdress. In 
the family mausoleum are two monuments of a more 
recent date; and in the belfry aisle two effigies, with the 
clerical habit and tonsure, one uninscribed and the other 
with an inscription too illegible to identify the dead."* 

In this citation from Fenton allusion is made to a ludi- 
crous story told by Giraldus Cambrensis, Gerald the Welsh- 
man, sometimes called Gerald de Barri, who accompanied 
Archbishop Baldwin of Canterbury through Wales in the 
year 1188, when Baldwin preached the crusade led by 
Richard the Lion-Hearted, and wrote in Latin an account of 
the itinerary. The story is of interest and gives positive 
evidence by a contemporary historian of the existence of 
Sir Elidur and of Stackpole Court in the twelfth century. 
He says, "In the province of Pembrokeshire another 
instance occurred, about the same time, of a spirit's appear- 
ing in the house of Eliodorus de Stakepole, not only sensibly 
but visibly, under the form of a red-headed young man, who 
called himself Simon. Seizing the keys from the person to 
whom they were entrusted, he impudently assumed the 
steward's office, which he managed so prudently and prov- 
idently that all things seemed to abound under his care, and 
there was no deficiency in the house. Whatever the master 
or mistress secretly thought of having for their daily use or 
provision, he procured with wonderful agility, and without 
any previous directions, saying you wished that to be done 

*The above citation is from a "Historical Tour through Pem- 
brokeshire" by Richard Fenton, Esq., F. A. S. London, 1811. Printed 
for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, etc. It is illustrated by engrav- 
ings of Stackpool Court and of the Tomb of Sir Elidur Stackpool, 
made in 1810 and 1809.

and it shall be done for you. He was also well acquainted 
with their treasures and secret hoards, and sometimes up- 
braided them on that account; for as soon as they seemed 
to act sparingly and avariciously, he used to say, "Why are 
you afraid to spend that heap of gold and silver, since your 
lives are of so short duration, and the money you so cau- 
tiously hoard up will never do you any good?" He gave the 
choicest meat and drink to the rustics and hired servants, 
saying that those persons should be abundantly supplied by 
whose labors they were acquired. Whatever he determined 
should be done, whether pleasing or displeasing to his mas- 
ter and mistress (for as we have said before he knew all 
their secrets), he completed in his usual expeditious manner 
without their consent. He never went to church nor 
uttered one Catholic v/ord. He did not sleep in the house, 
but was ready at his office in the morning. He was at 
length observed by some of the family to hold his nightly 
converse near a mill and a pool of water, upon which dis- 
covery he was removed. Summoned the next morning be- 
fore the master of the house and his lady, and receiving his 
discharge he delivered up the keys which he had held for 
upwards of forty days. Being earnestly interrogated at 
his discharge who he was? he answered that he was begot- 
ten upon the body of a rustic in that parish by a demon in 
the shape of her husband ; naming the man and his father- 
in-law then dead and his mother still alive; the truth of 
which the woman upon examination openly avowed".* 

This illegitimate son of an incarnate devil had more 
brains than his father, mother and master, and his views 
concerning the distribution of wealth might well be shared 
by modern socialists. 

If Fenton had more carefully examined the old print, 
which he says was presented to the grandfather of the then 
Lord Cawdor, he would have found underneath the portrait 
of the knight in Norman armor the following bit of ancient 
history : —

14 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

"Sir Richard Stacpoole of Pembrokeshire 
Who was knighted by William the Conqueror. The dif- 
ferent Welsh Historians and the old Records of that Prin- 
cipality mention him among the most respectable Men in 
the Year one thousand and ninety-one, being the fourth 
year of the reign of King William Rufus. He married Mar- 
garet, second Sister of Sir Richard Turberville, Lord of 
Coyty, and died without issue. Robert, the only brother of 
Sir Richard Stacpoole, married a daughter of Sir John Sit- 
sylt or Cecill, ancestor to Sir William Cecill, Lord Burghley, 
and Lord High Treasurer of England in the Reign of Queen 
Elizabeth. Sir William Stacpoole, his oldest Son, married 
a daughter of Howel ap Ithel, Lord of Roos and Ryuonioc, 
now Denbighland. Said Sir William had a Command in 
an Army raised in the Reign of King Stephen against David 
King of Scots, but died young, leaving three Sons and one 
Daughter. His oldest Son, Sir Richard Stacpoole of Stac- 
poole in the County of Pembroke, married a daughter of Sir 
Henry Vernon in the Peke. No mention is made of his 
second Son, but Robert the youngest, encouraged by his 
Cousin Robert Fitz Stephen, went over to Ireland with 
Richard Earl of Strigule known by the name of Strong- 
bow, and was a Captain of Archers in that Division of the 
Army which Fitz Stephen commanded under Strongbow, 
in the Year eleven hundred and sixty-eight, being the four- 
teenth Year of King Henry the second. Said Robert after- 
v/ards settled in Ireland, and from him the Stacpooles of 
the County of Clare are descended. The old Mansion of 
Stackpole Court and a large estate in Pembrokeshire 
descended to a Granddaughter of the second Sir Richard 
Stacpoole and is now the Property of the Son of the late 
Pryse Campbell, Esq., who v/as Member for that County." 
The "dignified clergyman" mentioned by Fenton was no 
other than John Stacpoole Esq. of Cragbrien Castle in the 
County of Clare, Ireland. Under his portrait it is recorded 
that he "departed this life the eighteenth of April, 1771, 
at the advanced age of Ninety-Seven, retaining to that late 
Period the most eminent Abilities, joined to the greatest 
Philanthropy of Heart, so that it remained a question 



ORIGIN 15 

whether he was most Beloved or Admired, and though His 
Mansion was the Seat of the most Unbounded HospitaUty, 
His Coffers ever open to the Indigent and Deserving, and His 
Indulgence to a numerous Tenantry seemed more like the 
Parent than the Landlord, to the establishment of many 
Families; yet He increased His Patrimony to that degree 
and purchased so many and extensive Tracts of Land, as to 
leave behind Him one of the Largest and best Circumstanced 
Estates in Ireland, and so far was He from taking advan- 
tage of any One's Distress, that All who ever dealt with Him 
acknowledge Him as the Fairest and most Liberal of Pur- 
chasers. 

If Learning, Eloquence and Graceful Ease, 
Sense to advise and sprightly Wit to please. 
And every Innate Virtue Heaven e'er gave, 
Could make Immortal, He had escaped the Grave." 

This fulsome praise doubtless flowed from the pen of 
Count George Stacpoole. There lies before me the first 
little volume of a work in four parts, entitled "Some Short 
Historical Anecdotes, with Remarks Relative to Ireland," 
dedicated to John Stacpoole, Esq. of Cragbrien by his most 
dutiful nephew George Stacpoole and published at Corke 
in 1762. About this time George Stacpoole was trying to 
establish his claim to the extinct baronage, De la Zouche, 
and in 1776 he caused the above mentioned portraits to be 
engraved, and his money persuaded the College of Her- 
aldry to prepare a Genealogical Table of the old Stackpole 
family of Pembrokeshire, with varied coats of arms of fam- 
ilies related by marriage. It differs in some particulars 
from what is said under the portrait of Sir Richard Stac- 
poole. Both accounts spell the old name Stacpoole, though 
the second o crept into the name in Ireland as late as the 
year 1700. With changed spelling the account is as 
follows : —

Strongbow, Earl of Strigule, in the XIV of Hen., II A. D. 
1168, and from him the Stacpooles of the County of Clare are 
descended.

Joan, married Sir Richard Vernon of Haddon, in the 
County of Derby, Kt., and died 41 Edward III. 1376. Their 
son. 

Sir Richard Vernon of Haddon, Treasurer of Calais, 
married Bennet, daughter and heir of William Ludlow. 

From this Sir Richard Vernon of Haddon descended 
the present Baron Vernon of Kinderton, and from a Female 
of the same Family is descended also the present Duke of 
Rutland, both which Families Quarter ye Arms of Stack- 
pole.*

torical documents, but imagination and pride supplied the 
rest. In the year 1902 Henry Owen, D.C.L., High Sheriff 
of Pembrokeshire, who belongs to a very old family of 
Welsh antiquarians, published a book entitled Old Pembroke 
Families, in which is a chapter on the Lords of Stackpole. 
It is based on printed and manuscript records of England 
and Wales. His account is as follows: — 

"The earliest lords of Stackpole of whom we find any 
mention came of a Norman family who had styled them- 
selves de Stackpole, but the records are so scanty that it 
is not possible to say with any certainty what relationship 
they bore to each other. The first of whom we hear is 
Elidor de Stackpole, who had for his seneschal, according 
to Gerald, an evil spirit who spent his nights in the pool 
at Stackpole mill. Elidor founded the church of Stackpole- 
Elidor or Cheriton (so called to distinguish it from Stack- 
pole Bosher or Bosherton), and, like other founders, was 
afterwards held to be the patron saint; there is no author- 
ity for Fenton's statement that he went on Archbishop 
Baldwin's crusade, or that the tomb in Stackpole Church 
is his ; he lived in the earlier part of the 12th century. 

The successor of Elidor was his son Robert, who, 
between 1180 and 1190, gave to Slebech two messuages and 
two bovates of land in Stackpole, and to St David's, for the 
repose of his own soul and that of Milo de Cogan, the church 
of Trefduant (St Edryn's). The de Stackpoles evidently 
held lands in the episcopal lordship of St David's, for Bishop 
Peter de Leia acknowledged by charter the rights of Elidor, 
brother of Robert, at Hendrewen, which charter was con- 
firmed by King John in 1206. William, presumably another 
brother, granted to Slebech a carucate of land at Alleston, 
and it is worthy of note that the knights of Slebech retained 
their grants in a way which the Bishops of St David's 
would have done well to follow. For example, Gerald 
accuses Bishop Peter aforesaid with having sold lands of 
the see at Burton to Philip, another brother of Robert, for 
"Irish Gold." It was this Philip who joined in the Pem- 
brokeshire invasion of Ireland in the time of Henry II. to 
which reference has been made in the previous papers, and 



18 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

founded the well-known family of Stackpole in County 
Clare. 

There is in the writer's possession a print of one "Sir 
Richard Stackpole of Pembrokeshire," stated (although his 
looks belie it) to have been "highly respected in the year 
1091." There is beneath a long and entirely inaccurate 
account of Sir Richard and of his descendants. Sir Richard 
had no existence. The print, and that of a priest of the 
same family, together with the genealogical details, were 
invented by a certain Count Stackpole, of the Irish fam- 
ily, who lived at Paris at the close of the 18th century. 

After Elidor and his four sons we find nothing recorded 
of the de Stackpoles until 1247, when a Philip de Stackpole 
held four knight's fees of the Earl of Pembroke, and in 1268 
[1272] this Philip (or a son of the same name) passed by 
a fine to Robert de Crespyng and Matilda his wife, for 
thirty marks of silver, a carucate of land in Merlynch 
(Marledge) . In those days it was the custom to obtain the 
authority of the great men of the neighborhood as witnesses 
to charters, which were the conveyances of the period; we 
find the name of Richard de Stackpole, knight, the son of 
Philip, a witness to three charters between 1272 and 1308. 
One of them was that of the Earl Aymer de Valence to 
Monkton Priory, and the two others were the Angle char- 
ters of 1273 and 1293 ; his arms were said to have been — 
Argent, a lion rampant gules, collared or (these are given 
in the Golden Grove Book as — Argent, three mullets sable) . 
In 1314 another Richard (his son) held a fee at Mirian Lony 
(the Merrion by Linney), and ten years later five fees of 
the Earl of the yearly value of 100 marks. In 1336 the 
heirs of Richard de Stackpole held of the bishop of Lam- 
phey and Llawhaden. In 1336 John de Stackpole, chaplain, 
(probably a trustee), granted to William de la Roche the 
yearly sum of £400, a large sum in those days, out of the 
manors of Burton and Hodgeston, with a right of entry in 
default of payment ; we are not told the reason of this grant, 
but it seems to have been some family settlement. In 1349 
we find Richard de Stackpole (son of the Richard of 1314) 
holding the fee at Mirian Lony ; he married about that year 



ORIGIN 19 

Margaret, sister of Richard Turberville, of Coyty, in 
Glamorgan, and was the last of the male line of the Stack- 
poles of Stackpole; for two hundred years the barony was 
held by the non-resident family of Vernon. 

We have no particulars of the barony ; that it was exten- 
sive may be gathered from the places mentioned above. 
Marteltwy was held of the barony by the Carews and Frey- 
strop by the de la Roches. 

By what descent Stackpole passed to the Vernons, the 
pedigree books differ; but the more plausible account is 
that Richard de Stackpole and Margaret above mentioned 
had two daughters ; Isabella, who married Rhys ap Gruff ydd, 
of Llanagthen, co. Carmarthen, and died without issue ; and 
Joanna, who then became sole heiress and brought Stack- 
pole to the family of her husband, Sir Richard de Vernon 
of Harlaston (not Hodnet, as Fenton says), co. Stafford. 
Sir Richard lived at any rate for a time at Stackpole, and 
in 1400 was on a commission to inquire as to the King's 
debtors at Pembroke, but we find no further trace of the 
Vernons in the local records. They had large possessions 
and great offices in England, and confided the management 
of their Pembrokeshire estates to the stewards and bailiffs. 
Sir Richard's son, another Richard, was speaker of the 
Parliament at Leicester, known in history as the Bats Par- 
liament ; and this Richard's son, William, was the last con- 
stable of England for life. Henry, the son of William, was 
governor to Prince Arthur, son of Henry VII, and built 
Haddon Hall, which then became the principal seat of the 
Vernons".* 

The conflicting statements of historians led me to a more 
careful search of the Public Records of Great Britain and of 
historical authorities, with the results that are here set 
forth. 

The first one of the Stackpole family mentioned in

authentic history is Elidyr de Stakepol. Giraldus Cam- 
brensis, writing about the year 1188, speaks of him as of a 
previous generation. He calls him, in Latinized form, Elio- 
dorus de Stakepole. The church of Stackpole-Elidyr was 
doubtless named for him as the builder and patron saint. 
The old square Norman tower, or belfry, still standing, is 
sufficient proof of its early origin. Ludchurch, about 
twelve miles northeast of Stackpole Court, was also dedi- 
cated to St. Elidyr and may have been built by Elidyr de 
Stakepol. Some have supposed that the name is derived 
from St. Heliodorus, who was a native of Dalmatia and 
friend of St. Jerome, whom he accompanied on some of his 
journeys. He was made bishop of Altino, in Italy, and 
assisted, in 381 A. D., at the Council of Aquileia, where he 
vigorously opposed Arianism. The relics of this saint are 
shown at Torcelli, in Venetia.* 

But Elidyr, although a word of Greek origin, meaning 
gift of the sun, or perhaps votive offering to the sun, was 
a very common name among the Welsh of that time and of 
earlier times, found often in the writings of Welsh histo- 
rians and in the public records of England. Goeffrey of 
Monmouth names Elidyr the Pious as one of the ancient 
mythical kings of Britain. There is a mountain in Wales 
called Elidyr Fawr. Here, then, is a man with a Welsh 
name, in possession of a Norman-built stronghold, with only 
Normans and Flemings as neighbors for many miles. No 
Welshman owned a castle in southern Pembrokeshire in his 
time. The Welsh then dwelt in the mountainous regions 
and were in almost continual conflict with the Norman set- 
tlers. I can account for his Welsh name only on the sup- 
position that someone of the first Norman adventurers mar- 
ried a Welsh woman and perhaps in this way, as well as 
by conquest, obtained possession of Stakepol. We know 
historically that some possessions in Wales were thus 
gained. There is need of a generation earlier than Elidyr 
to account for the possession of this estate, which was one 
of the largest held by the barons under the Earl of Pem-

broke. The land must have been all taken as early as the 
year 1100, and then Elidyr was not old enough to have taken 
original possession, since his son Robert is known to have 
been living in the year 1216. The prevalence of the name 
Richard in the family suggests that this might have been 
the name of the Norman knight who was father of Elidyr 
by a Welsh wife. No records have been discovered to 
solve the question. 

Elidyr de Stakepol had a castle, sublet small farms to 
villani, or tenants, held Court-Baron three times a year, 
and paid homage and taxes to the Earl of Pembroke. He 
had a mill on the pool east of his castle. He must have 
been often in military conflict with the Welsh, and tradition 
says that he went on a crusade and that his efiigy is seen at 
Cheriton, on the altar-tomb in the church of Stackpole- 
Elidyr. This tradition is disputed by some. "Elidur lived 
in the earlier part of the twelfth century but this effigy at 
Cheriton is clad in armor worn in the early fifteenth cen- 
tury. There is also the efiigy of a lady in this church : she 
rests on on altar-tomb, which corresponds to that of her 
male companion. This lady wears a square headdress and 
low-cut bodice, such as were in vogue during the reign of 
Henry IV. — So Fenton's Sir Elidyr most likely represents 
Richard Vernon, and the lady is Johanna, the last of the 
Stackpoles at Stackpole."* 

The above supposition, however, seems improbable. The 
monument to Sir Elidyr de Stakepol and that to his wife 
may have been erected two centuries after their time and 
so sculptured according to late costumes. The Vernons 
lived but little here, and there is no record or inscription 
that any Vernon was buried here. The posture of the 
eflfigy, with legs crossed, is traditionally that which com- 
memorates a crusader. The church of Stackpole-Elidyr 
(St. Elidyr and St. James) was repaired in 1851, and then 
Sir Stephen Richard Glynne, Bart., wrote the following 
description. 

"The plan consists of a chancel with south chapel, a nave

and transepts with a tower placed at the north end of the 
north transept. The tower tapers, and is without either 
stringcourse or battlement, but has a corbel-table near the 
top; the belfry windows single and narrow. The lower 
part, as usual, is vaulted within. There is a staircase from 
within to the tower. The arches to the transepts are plain 
and pointed ; that to the chancel is round. There are hagio- 
scopes on the north and south, from the transepts into the 
church; that on the south is oblique and reaches to the 
ground; that on the north is straight and has a depressed 
arch. The chancel opens to the south chapel by a wide 
obtuse arch upon imposts. This chapel has a stone vault 
with very plain moulded ribs. At its east end is a curious, 
original stone altar in a perfect state, on which are some 
characters, apparently Ogham. There is also a trefoiled 
piscina. In the chapel is a very fine monumental effigy of a 
cross-legged knight, under a fine ogee, crocketed canopy in 
the wall. This canopy has flowered moulding, all of elegant 
Middle Pointed character. There are also two effigies of 
ladies; and on a paneled altar-tomb, now mutilated, the 
figures of a man and woman under trefoiled arches." 

A footnote says, "The effigy with its crocketed canopy, 
mentioned above, as being in the chantry, lies in the north 
wall of the chancel, in what appears to have been its orig- 
inal position. The cist beneath containing the skeleton of 
(as may be confidently supposed) Sir Elidyr de Stackpole 
was found in 1851, when the exterior face of the wall was 
rebuilt".* 

The Great Roll of the Pipe, of Henry IL, containing rec- 
ords of the Exchequer of England, mentions Richard de 
Stakepol four times between the years 1169 and 1176. The 
records in 1175 and 1176 are identical and as follows, 
"Roger de Oxinford deb III m p habendo recto de XVI m. 
qas Ric de Stakepol ei detinet. Sed abiit in Hibn." Roger 
of Oxford owed the Treasury of England three marks for 
having right to sixteen marks which Richard de Stakepol 
withheld from him. But as a reason for Richard's failure

to pay him it is added, "But he has gone away into Ireland." 
This was just the time when Strongbow made his descent 
upon Ireland, landing at Wexford in 1169 and followed by 
Henry II. in 1172. The companions of Strongbow were 
about seventy Pembrokeshire knights and their archers. 
We find no other record of this Richard de Stakepol. He 
probably stayed in Ireland and founded the Stacpole family 
of Cork and adjacent counties. He may have been a son or 
a brother of Sir Elidyr de Stakepol. 

The confirmation by Bishop Anselm of certain lands and 
properties in Wales to the Knights Hospitalers of St. John, 
at Slebech, cites the charter of Peter, who was Bishop of 
Menevia, or St. David's, 1176-1198, as follows,— "Know ye 
that we have inspected the charter of our predecessor Peter 
of good memory in these words ; Peter by the grace of God 

Bishop of Menevia confirms those possessions 

which belong to them in our diocese through the liberality 
of Earls, Barons, Knights, and other faithful people of God, 

as well French as Welsh and Flemish, Ex dono Willi 

fil: Eliduri unam carrucatam terr: in Pembrochshire. Ex 
dono Robti fil : ejusdem duo messuagia et dua bovatus terrae 
ad Stakpol".* 

Here we have two sons of Elidyr de Stakepol, William 
and Robert, giving land to the Commandery of Knights 
Hospitalers at Slebech before the year 1176. William 
gave a carucate of land at Alleston, once known as Aylward- 
stone, i. e. Eilardstown. A map in Camden's Britain, 
printed in 1637, locates Aleston about one mile west of Lan- 
fey (Lamphrey) and four miles north of Stackpole Court. 
A carucate, or ploughgang, of land was as much as a team 
of eight oxen could cultivate in a year, usually reckoned as 
one hundred and twenty acres. A plow-team was made up, 
after the old Anglo-Saxon custom, of eight oxen, yoked four 
abreast. We know nothing more about William, son of 
Elidyr de Stakepol. 

Robert gave two messuages, consisting of house and gar-

206, 217, and also the Appendix to Fenton's Historical Tour through 
Pembrokeshire, where the full Latin charter is printed. 



24 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

den of a few acres, and two bovates, or oxgangs, of land 
at Stakepol. A bovate contained about fifteen acres. "A 
half-virgate is the land of one ox ; next to this is a virgate, 
or the land of a single yoke of oxen ; next a half hide, which 
is two virgates, or half a carucate ; next a full hide, or caru- 
cate, which is four virgates; and lastly, a knight's fee of 
four hides".* 

Slebech Hall was a seat of a Commandery of Knights 
Hospitalers of St. John, about twelve miles north by east of 
Stackpole Court, on the Cleddau river, that empties into the 
waters of Milford Haven. It lay about midway between 
Haverfordwest and Narberth, and its ruins may still be 
traced. Here for four hundred years the Knights were a 
sort of frontier garrison against the marauding incursions 
of the Welsh, and the owners of estates in Pembrokeshire 
might well contribute to the support of the Commandery 
for their own defense. A very interesting history of the 
Knights at Slebech may be found in Archaeologia Cam- 
brensis. 

Robert de Stakepol was, doubtless, the successor of Sir 
Elidyr as lord at Stackpole Court. About the year 1190 he 
gave a church at Trefduant, or Trefduok, to St. David, as 
the following document shows. The assignment of this 
church to a certain vicar in the year 1278 was the occasion 
tof citing the original charter, and thus it was preserved 
among the Harleian Manuscripts, whence this copy was 
obtained in the year 1909. 

"Item, let the present and future know that I, Robert 
son of Elidir, have given, granted and by this my charter 
have confirmed to God and St. David and to the chapter of 
the church of Menevia, for God and the soul of Milo de 
Cogan and for my soul and the souls of my father and 
mother and of my ancestors, the church of Trefduant with 
all its appurtenances, for the purpose of providing for the 
common life of the canons. These being witnesses, lord 
Peter Bishop of Menevia, into whose hands I have made 
the donation, P, archdeacon, Osbert and Robert, canons, Odo

de Carew, patron, Philip de Barri, Adam de la Roche, and 
many others. 

Item, to all the sons of Holy Mother Church who shall 
see or hear the present letters, Richard, by the grace of God 
Bishop of Menevia, eternal salvation in the Lord. The 
office of pastoral care demands, that those things which are 
bestowed upon churches by the faithful, through pious 
largition, should take perpetual confirmation from special 
authority. Hence it is, that we, having considered and 
accepted the donation which Robert, son of Elidir, of good 
memory, once made of the church of Trefduok to God and 
blessed David and the canons of Menevia there serving God, 
do fix and confirm these presents by authority, that the 
church of Menevia have and hold forever the mentioned 
church, for the common life of the aforesaid canons, with 
all things thereto pertaining, for Salvus Caduganus of 
Penres, vicar of the same church, and for the vicars there 
successors of the same, in moiety of the fruits and incomes 
of the whole aforesaid church. So that the same Caduganus 
and all and each of his successors may claim as their own 
the taxes incumbent upon the same church in proportion 
as they collect. In testimony of which thing we have 
caused our seal to be aflfixed to these presents. 

Given at Trefdyn on the Thursday next before the feast 
of the Lord's Annunciation in the year of our Lord one 
thousand two hundred and seventy-eight".* 

Henry Owen identifies this church as St. Edryn's, per- 
haps ten miles east by north from St. David's. Milo de 
Cogan was one of the leaders under the Earl of Strigule, 
called Strongbow, in the conquest of Ireland, often men- 
tioned by Giraldus Cambrensis. He was treacherously slain 
at Linsmore, Ireland, in 1185, his brother Richard de Cogan 
succeeding him. Fenton says that he had a possession in 
Llanmilo, or Castle Llwyd. Cogan is the name of a place 
near Cardiff, Wales. The erection of this church may indi- 
cate a relationship with Milo de Cogan. 

We learn something more of Robert in the following : — 
"Earl William Marshall is commanded that he cause Robert

son of Elidyr to have full seizin of the land which belonged 
to Godfridiis de Lucy in Karwent, with all its appurtenances 
in those parts, which the lord King granted to him, to have 
as long as he pleases".* William Marshall was then Earl 
of Pembroke. Godfridus de Lucy, archdeacon of Derby, 
afterwards Bishop of Winchester, witnessed the will of 
Henry II in 1132 and died before 1205. He took sides 
against King John. There is an Irewent, located a mile 
north of Stackpole Court, in Camden's Britain, but Kar- 
went seems rather to have been Caerwent, the old Roman 
Venta Silurum, four or five miles southwest of Chepstow, 
in Monmouthshire. Caer is from the Latin castrum, and 
went is from the Celtic gwent, champaign, the flat open 
country of the Silures, as the Romans called it. Here was 
anciently an important military station. It may be 
that Richard de Stakepol was enrolled among the Knights 
of Gloucestershire, because of owning land at Karwent. 
The county of Monmouth was organized later, in 1535. 

Another son of Elidyr de Stakepol was Elidyr the priest 
and canon of St. David's. He is mentioned repeatedly by 
Giraldus Cambrensis and was sent by the chapter as one 
of a delegation of four to Richard I in Normandy, in the 
year 1199, and after the death of Richard to King John.f 
Giraldus tells an interesting story about a priest Eliodorus, 
and the index of Sir Richard Colt Hoare's translation of 
Giraldus' Itinerary identifies him with Elidyr de Stakepol. 
The story represents him as an old man before 1176, and 
this Elidyr was living, as we shall see, in 1206, but Giraldus 
is not always accurate as to dates. The story sounds so 
much like that told of the demon in the house of Elidyr de 
Stakepol, that both may well be thought of as stories told 
by Elidyr junior to Giraldus, when they were young priests 
together at St. David's. Hoare's translation is very free 
and omits important particulars. I here offer a more lit- 
eral rendering, preserving the order of words in the 
original as much as possible.

ORIGIN 27 

"A little before these our times there occurred in these 
parts a thing not unworthy of mentioning, which the pres- 
byter Elidyr most constantly related as having happened 
to himself. For when he was now passing his twelfth year 
of boyish innocence, since, as Salomon says, 'The root of 
learning is bitter, though its fruit is sweet', the boy de- 
voted to a literary education, in order to escape discipline 
and the frequent floggings of the teacher, hid himself a 
fugitive in the hollow bank of a certain stream. And when 
he had now lain there concealed without interruption while 
the sun twice revolved, there appeared to him two little 
men, almost of Pygmaean stature, saying, "If you will come 
with us, we will lead you to a land of games and frolics." 
He, nodding assent and rising, followed them leading the 
way, at first through a subterranean and gloomy passage, 
even unto a very beautiful land, highly adorned with 
streams, meadows, woods and plains, dusky, however, and 
not brightened with the open light of the sun. There all the 
days were cloudy, as it were, and the nights were very 
horrid because of the absence of moon and stars. The boy 
was led to the king and presented to him in the presence 
of the court of the realm. When the king had looked at him 
a long time, with the admiration of all, at length he handed 
him over and committed him to the care of his own son, 
who was then a boy. Though the men were of very small 
stature, yet they were strongly built for their size. All 
were flaxen colored and of luxuriant hair, which hung down 
over their shoulders after the manner of women. They 
had horses suited to their littleness, like unto hares in size. 
They ate neither flesh nor fish, using mostly foods made 
of milk and prepared like pottage with saffron, as it were. 
They had no oaths, for they detested nothing so much as 
lies. As often as they returned from the upper hemisphere, 
they spewed out our flatteries, unfaithfulness and incon- 
stancies. They had no open religious worship ; only of the 
truth, as it appeared, they were special lovers and fosterers. 
To resume, the boy used often to ascend to our hemisphere, 
sometimes by the way by which he came, sometimes by 
another way, at first with others and afterwards by himself. 



28 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

Only to his mother did he commit himself, declaring to her 
the manner of the country and the nature of the people 
and their state. Advised, therefore, by his mother to bring 
back to her sometime a present of gold, in which the region 
abounded, a golden ball, which the son of the king used 
to play with, he snatched from the game itself and hastening 
his course by the usual way carried it to his mother. And 
when he had now arrived at the door of his father's house, 
though not without the pursuit of that people, as he hast- 
ened to enter his foot stuck fast upon the threshold, and so 
as he fell within the house, while his mother was sitting 
there, two pygmies following his tracks seized the ball that 
had slipped from his hand, giving vent to their contempt 
and scorn by spitting upon the boy. He, indeed, arising 
and coming to himself, is confounded by the wonderful 
shamefacedness of the dead, and cursing and deprecating 
especially the advice of his mother, when he got ready to 
return by the way which he had been accustomed to take, 
and had come to the descent of water and the underground 
passage, approach to him now none appeared, even when 
through quite a period of years he sought as a vain explorer 
the way within the hollow banks of the aforesaid water. 
But since those things which reason does not soften some- 
times grow mellow by delay of time, and long duration 
alone very often blunts our lightened griefs, — if indeed to 
evils many comes an end of time, — at length, however, with 
difficulty recalled and restored to himself by friends and 
especially by his mother and having earnestly given himself 
to letters, finally in process of days he was promoted to 
the grade of priesthood. 

However, when David second, bishop of Menevia, many 
times had stirred up the presbyter, now spent with old age, 
by inquiry concerning this event, never was he able to 
unfold to him the affair in order without tears. He also 
had obtained knowledge of the language of that people, 
whose words even he had been wont to repeat, which he 
had rapidly acquired in the years of boyhood, as is custom- 
ary. Moreover, the words were very much like the Greek 
idiom, just as they were often put before me by the afore- 



ORIGIN 29 

said bishop. For when they wanted water, they said, Ydor 
ydorum, which means in Latin, aquam offer, for water is 
called Ydo7' in their language just as also in Greek; whence 
also water- vessels are called Ydriae; and likewise water is 
called Duur in British. So, too, wanting salt they said 
Halgein ydorum, that is, bring salt. Indeed salt is called 
Hal in Greek and haleyn in British. For the British lan- 
guage is found in many things conformed to the Greek, on 
account of the long delay which the Britons, who then were 
called Trojans and afterwards Britons from Brutus their 
leader, made in Greece after the destruction of Troy".* 

The "David second", mentioned above, was uncle to 
Giraldus and bishop of Menevia, or St. David's, dying in 
1176. The "descent of water and underground passage" 
suggests the dam and bridge at the lower end of Stack-pool, 
a photograph of which I obtained. We can easily imagine 
the boy of twelve years playing there and dreaming many 
adventures. 

Giraldus finds much fault with Peter, bishop of Mene- 
via, and charges him with extortions and squandering the 
property of his diocese. He says that "in order that before 
his decease nothing should remain unsold, even that bit of 
an estate, which used to be reserved for the table of the 
bishops, when they visited his church, at Burton, he sold 
to son Elidyr for Irish gold, and the residue Maurice 
carried away".t 

The "Irish gold" probably was furnished by one of the 
priest Elidyr's brothers, who had won spoils in the conquest 
of Ireland and sent them back to fatherland. Burton is 
north of the Cleddau river and outside of the barony of 
Stakepol. We hear no more of it, unless this is referred to 
in the following confirmation of charter made by King John 
in the year 1206. A charter, or deed, from the king made

assurance doubly sure and put an end to all litigation, since 
the king was held to be the original owner of all the land.

Normandy and Aquitaine, and Earl of Anjou]. Know ye 
that we have granted and by the present charter have con- 
firmed to Elidyr son of Elidyr the land of Hendavam, which 
Peter bishop of St. David's acknowledged to him as his right 
and granted to him and by his charter confirmed, as the 
charter itself of the same bishop, which he has, reasonably 
witnesses. Wherefore [I wish and firmly decree] that the

twelfth day of September, in the seventh year of the reign 
of King John".* 

Henry Owen identifies Hendavarn with Hendrewen, in 
the parish of Jordanston, in northern Pembrokeshire, but 
it looks as though this might be the land above mentioned, 
sold to son Elidyr for Irish gold, in Burton. 

Giraldus Cambrensis also says that Eustace de Stake- 
pol had money extorted from him by Peter, Bishop of St. 
David's. "Novit hoc Eustachius de Stakepole in Pem- 
brokiae finibus, qui ecclesiam, cujus personatum gessit 
aperte, vicario tantum defuncto, sic sequestratum per X 
marcas extortas relaxavit, et vix tandem ad manus suas 
revocavit". Eustace seems to have been a priest and is 
probably the same one whom Giraldus once sent as a mes- 
senger to Rome, and he accuses him of having purloined 

'^Translated from the abbreviated, or shorthand, Latin of Rotuli 
Chartorum, Vol. I, p. 157b. 



ORIGIN 31 

the beautiful girdle, which he sent by him as a present to 
the Pope. 

The Annals of Wales say, "Johannes filius Elidir obiit" 
in the year 1193. John is a name that is found in all the 
subsequent generations of the Stakepol family. 

Henry Owen's statement, that Robert de Stakepol had 
a brother Philip, who founded the family in Ireland, is an 
error based on a misreading of Giraldus Cambrensis. The 
first Philip de Stakepol known in the records was probably 
son of Robert. In 1247 he held four knight's fees of the 
Earl of Pembroke. July 2, 1250 (34 Henry III) is the date 
of the following, — "Mandate to Philip de Stakepol, the king 
having heard that the land which he held of Walter Mar- 
shall, Earl of Pembroke, fell to purparty of W. de Valencia, 
the king's brother, and Joan his wife, one of the heirs of 
the said Marshall, to do homage for the same to the said 
William and to be intendant to the said William and Joan 
as his lords for his service"* 

It is probably the same Philip who is named in the fol- 
lowing document, a copy of which, in abbreviated Latin, 
was sent to me by the above named Henry Owen. The 
translation is quite strictly literal. 

"This is the final agreement made in the court of Lord 
William de Valence, Earl of Pembroke, on the Tuesday next 
after the feast of St. Edmund Rich, in the fifty-seventh 
year of the reign of King Henry son of King John, (1272) 
in the presence of lords William de Boleville, then seneschal 
of Pembroke, Robert de Vale, David de Wydeworth, John

lord Philip for himself and his heirs acknowledged said land 
with its appurtenances to belong to him the said Robert 
and to Matilda his wife all the days of their life and to their 
heirs born of the said Matilda forever, or to their assigns, 
as that which they have by gift and grant of said lord Philip 
TO HAVE AND TO HOLD said land with its appurte- 
nances, to said Robert and Matilda his wife all the days of 
their life and to their heirs born of the said Matilda, or 
to their assigns, from said lord Philip and his heirs, freely, 
quietly, well, peacefully, and hereditarily forever, with all 
liberties, free usages and easements pertaining to said 
land within and without, said Robert and Matilda his wife 
paying thereafter annually all the days of their life and 
their heirs born of the said Matilda forever, to said lord 
Philip and heirs or assigns, one obolus on the feast of St. 
Michael, and making annually three suits at court of said 
lord and his heirs of Stakepol Elider during the reasonable 
sum of fifteen days. And said lord Philip and his heirs 
shall warrant, acquit, and defend said Robert and Matilda 
his wife and their heirs or assigns, as is before said, against 
all men and women. For the above final agreement, 
acknowledgment of right and warrantization said Robert 
and Matilda his wife have given thirty marks of silver to 
said lord Philip, and so forth".* 

The above citation is what is known as a "foot of a fine", 
the part at the bottom or foot of a deed torn off and pre- 
served in the archives, it being the substance of what is 
contained in the deed. A fictitious suit was begun in court, 
and this was the final settlement, that immediately fol- 
lowed. It is called a "fine" from the word finalis in the 
phrase with which the deed begun, Haec est finalis con- 
cordia, since it put an end to all legal strife. The leading 
men of Pembrokeshire witnessed the deed. We learn here 
that a Court-Baron was held thrice a year at the residence 
of "lord Philip", and that the place was called in 1276 
"Stakepoll-Elyder", showing that Elidyr de Stakepol was 
prominent enough to stamp his name on the place. An old 

*Sloane Chart, XXXIl, 19. 



ORIGIN 33 

record so distinguishes it from "Stakepol Bosher", three 
or four miles south, but belonging from early times to the 
same barony. The Bosher family was known in Ireland 
from the time of the conquest, and the name disappeared 
in Pembrokeshire. 

The annual payment of an obolus, a coin then valued at 
a penny and a half, was a simple recognition that Robert 
de Crespyng owed feudal service to lord Philip de Stakepol. 
Bouvier's Law Dictionary defines secta ad curiam as "suit 
at court, the service due from tenants to the lord of attend- 
ing his courts-baron both to answer complaint alleged 
against themselves and for the trial of their fellow- 
tenants". 

A mark of silver at that time was worth thirteen shil- 
lings and four pence, so that the price per acre was a little 
more than three shillings. It should be remembered, how- 
ever, that the price, fixed by law, of an ox, a cow, or a horse, 
was then three shillings. 

Philip de Stakepol witnessed a charter, or deed, at 
Pembroke, in 1257, and he, or another of the same name, 
witnessed a charter in 1290.* 

Henry Owen has already introduced to us Richard de 
Stakepol, knight, son of Philip, as a witness to three char- 
ters between 1272 and 1308. The following is of interest 
concerning him, dated 12 Kal. Aug. 1290. It is a man- 
date from Pope Nicholas IV. "Mandate to the Bishop of 
St. David's to grant a dispensation to Richard de Stakepol 
and Lucy de Rannvilla, of his diocese, to remain in the 
marriage they have contracted, they being related in the 
fourth degree of kindred ; the marriage having been made 
in order to put an end to the enmities which have long 
subsisted between the two families".! 

*See Charter Rolls, Vol. II, p. 373, and Catalogue of Ancient Deeds, 
Vol. Ill, p. 434, where he is called knight. 

fCalendar of Papal Registers, Vol. I p. 515. Cf. p. 522, where 
under date of 10 Kal. Jan. 1290, is a "Mandate to the bishop of St. 
David's, to make inquiry and grant a dispensation to Geoffrey de 
Rannville and Joan de Herefort to remain in the marriage contracted 
in ignorance that they were related in the fourth degree of kindred, 
declaring their future offspring legitimate". 



34 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

Lucy de Rannvilla was, perhaps, the heiress of an extinct 
branch of the Stakepol family, and the root of the "enmi- 
ties" was probably the old "root of all evil". There had 
been trouble, most likely, about division of property. This 
marriage united conflicting interests. 

In the year 1314 Richard de Stakepol held the fee at 
"Mirian Lony (the Merrion by Linney) , and ten years later 
five fees of the Earl, of the yearly value of one hundred 
marks".* He had, then, about two thousand four hundred 
acres in Pembrokeshire, besides land at Caerwent, and was 
one of the largest landowners of his time and region. 
Merion Court is not far from Linney Head and Linney 
River, about five or six miles west of Stackpole Court. 

In 1349 Richard de Stakepol, probably son of the last 
named Richard, held the fee at Mirian Lony. This was 
probably the knight who married Margaret, daughter of 
Sir Pain Turberville of Coyty Castle, Glamorgan. He was 
not the last of the male line of Stakepols at Stackpole Court, 
as Henry Owen says, but he had a son Richard, as an 
Inquisitio post mortem of 1411 plainly shows. On the 
death of Lawrence Berkrolls, knight, it is declared that 
Margaret Turberville, who married Richard de Stakepol, 
had a son Richard, whose daughter, Joan, married Sir 
Richard Vernon and inherited property, her sister Isabella 
having died. Joan was then upwards of forty years of 

age.t 

Burke's History of the Commoners says that "Sir Pain 
Turberville, Knt. of Coyty Castle, married Gwenllian, dau. 
of Sir Richard Talbot, Knt. and left issue, Gilbert Knt. of 
Coyty, d. s. p. ; Richard d, s. p. ; Catherine m. to Sir Roger 
Berkrolls, Knt.; Agnes m. to Sir John de la Bere, Knt.; 
Sarah m. to Sir William Gamage, Knt., who became Lord 
of Coyty ; and Margaret, m. to Sir Richard Stackpole, Knt." 
The last Sir Richard de Stakepol married Isabel Laundry,

Rolls, II, 267.

according to the Genealogical Chart of the College of Her- 
aldry, though this is of very doubtful authority, and had 
daughters Isabel and Joan. Isabel married Rice ap Grif- 
fith and died without issue. Joan married Sir Richard 
Vernon, who was born in 1370 and died in 1401, leaving two 
sons and two daughters. Joan was living in the year 1422.* 

The Genealogical Chart was not a work of imagination 
alone, but was also the product of genealogical research. 
This is proved by the fact that it copied a mistake of the 
Harleian Manuscripts, which say that "Sir Richard Vernon 
of the Peak m. Jone, dau. of Sir Ric. Griffith, dau. and coheir 
of Sir Ric. Stackpole". Joan was not daughter of Griffith, 
but sister of his wife and daughter of the last Sir Richard 
Stakepol. 

Dr. Powell's translation of Caradoc's History of Wales, 
editions of 1774, 1812, and 1832, gives Stackpole pedigrees 
agreeing in the main with that of the Genealogical Chart, 
and evidently derived from it, since the pedigrees are not 
found in editions of 1584 and 1697. 

Among some papers at Cragbrien, Ireland, was found 
a translation of a French document by M. Manguen, who 
was legal agent in the suit of the heirs of Count George 
Stacpoole, which states that "George might have become 

Lord de la Zouche Codnor and Ashby . His rights, 

which are proven by two acts of Heraldic inquest, were 
acknowledged by George III. on the report of Lord Exeter. 
Two tables are added to this, extracted from two heraldic 
works printed, engraved and published under the warrant 
of the King at Arms, a Royal officer in England. There 
may also be seen, on page 329 of the volume annexed, the 
veracity of this descent and of the foregoing claims, which 
are subjects of public notoriety in the three kingdoms". 
The "acts of heraldic inquest" are, no doubt, the two repro- 
duced on previous pages of this book, and the "volume 
annexed" is the first volume of Select Views in Leicester- 
shire, by J. Throsby (1789), which at page 329 mentions 
the marriage of the daughter of Alan de la Zouche to Rob- 

*See Calendar of Papal Registers, Vol. VII, p. 322.

ert Stacpoole. "Alan, Lord Zouche, died in the 71st year 
of Edward II., leaving his successor Alan and three daugh- 
ters. Isabella, the eldest, was married to Robert Stacpoole, 
the descendant of Guillaume de Stackpoole de Montvalai, 
who came over with William the Conqueror at the same 
time with Alan-de-la-Zouch. The said Robert and his 
wife afterwards settled in Ireland and were the founders 
of the family in that kingdom". All this is a chain of lies. 
There is no evidence of a Guillaume de Stackpoole de Mont- 
valai, nor of a Montvalai in Normandy or France. It was 
not Robert Stacpoole who founded the family in Ireland, 
but Richard de Stakepol, as we have shown. Two cen- 
turies later a certain Robert Stacpole of Ireland may have 
married Isabella de la Zouche, but more likely such a mar- 
riage never occurred. It was Irish gold that caused those 
statements to be inserted in books. At that time a desired 
pedigree could be worked up by the College of Heraldry for 
money, and authors of books were easily induced to repro- 
duce errors.* 

The following tentative pedigree has much historical 
evidence.

ORIGIN 37 

The descendants of Elidyr de Stakepol occupied Stack- 
pole Court for three centuries. The Vernon family, as 
absentees for nearly all the time, held possession of the old 
Stakepol estate for the next two centuries. The Lort fam- 
ily then got possession of it either by marriage or pur- 
chase. The oldest inscription in the chantry of the church 
of Stackpole-Elidyr is as follows :— "HERE LYETH THE 
BODY OF ROGER LORTE ESQUIER LATE LORDE 
OF THE MANNOR OF STACKPOOLE. HE LIVED 
RELIGIOUSLY DOOING GOOD UNTO MANY AND 
PATIENTLY DECEDED 17 MAII 1613." 

"Elizabeth, sister and heir of Sir Gilbert Lort, Bart., of 
Stackpole Court, married, 1689, Sir Alexander Campbell 
of Cawdor, and their son and heir, John Campbell, married, 
1726, Mary, dau. and coheir of Lewis Pryse of Gogarthen, 
being parents of Pryse Campbell, the father of the first 
Baron Cawdor".* The late Earl of Cawdor, John F. 
Vaughan Campbell, born 1817, died 29 March 1898 and 
was buried in the church of Stackpole-Elidyr. His oldest 
son, Frederick Archibald Vaughan Campbell, formerly Vis- 
count Evelyn, born 13 Feb. 1847, succeeded to the earldom 
and died 8 Feb. 1911. He held several public posts and 
was appointed first lord of the admiralty in 1906. 

I visited the ancient cradle of the family, Stackpole 
Court, in July, 1897. Setting out on foot from Pembroke 
early in the morning, I spent the entire day on the estate 
of the Earl of Cawdor. The road winds over hill and dale 
through rolling land of great fertility, divided into pastures 
and meadows by picturesque hedge-rows. Surely the 
Normans can be forgiven for having been captivated by 
the extensive prospects of natural wealth and beauty. At 
the end of an avenue of trees the porter's lodge is seen with 
broad meadows beyond. A mile further on is the Keeper's 
House, upon which the sunbeams pour through an opening 
in the dense foliage. The lands of the Earl are heavily 
wooded with beech, fir, chestnut and lime trees, round which 
twines luxuriant ivy. Well made drives and walks wind

throughout the estate. The present approach to the man- 
sion is by a bridge of a single large arch, with Stack-pool 
on the east side and an artificial pond on the west. The 
eight-arch bridge, described by Fenton, is a mile further 
south and now little used. The house has been remodeled 
since Fenton's time. Porticoes and projections in front 
relieve the monotony of the lengthy structure. The spa- 
cious lawn is broken tastefully by shrubbery here and there, 
and trees with wide-spreading branches bound it on the 
north. The stables are to the south of the lawn, at right 
angles with the house and half concealed by vines and 
foliage. The Earl being in London at Queen Victoria's 
jubilee, I was courteously shown through the principal 
apartments by the house-keeper, who had respect for my 
visiting card. The entrance was adorned with weapons 
and armor, and led by easy ascent immediately to the ele- 
gantly furnished drawing-room, which runs lengthwise 
through the middle of the northern part of the mansion. 
In front of this is the dining room; the library extends 
through a suite of rooms on the east side. It contains about 
ten thousand volumes of choicest books in elegant bindings. 
The walls of all the rooms are almost as profusely decorated 
as a picture gallery with paintings, especially portraits of 
several generations of the family. I was shown a portion 
of the cellar, whose ribbed vault is thought to preserve 
the original architecture of the old castle inhabited by Sir 
Elidyr de Stakepol. A picture of the vault may be seen in 
Laws' History of Little England Beyond Wales, already 
cited. In the rear of the mansion, on the east, is a broad 
terrace overlooking Stackpool, whose waters stretch two 
miles or so towards the sea. The view from this point is 
charming. The conservatory of flowers adjoins it on the 
north side. 

After consulting some books in the library and par- 
taking of refreshments hospitably offered I wandered 
through the shady walks to the village called Stackpole, 
where dwell many of the tenants of Lord Cawdor. There 
is about the village an appearance of neatness, comfort 
and contentment, if not of wealth. If a wage of fourteen 



ORIGIN 39 

shillings per week is not high, certainly the rent of a pretty- 
thatched cottage, with garden and cow, for four pounds per 
annum is not exorbitant. The children are happily gath- 
ered, to the number of about one hundred, in a school 
taught by a master and two lady assistants. I was told 
sadly that many of the young people emigrate to America. 
The children were bright, intelligent and fairly well clothed. 
I took a snap-shot of a group of them near a house that is 
used as the post-office. The ancient cross mentioned by 
Fenton in 1810 is broken down and fallen into decay. 

I next proceeded to the church of Stackpole-Elidyr. 
The old large square tower testifies to its Norman origin. 
The rest of the church has been repaired and rebuilt 
repeatedly, yet the general style of the original architec- 
ture has been preserved. It is not large, will accommodate 
perhaps two hundred persons. It is in the form of the Latin 
cross and without aisles. The entrance is in the side oppo- 
site to the tower. In the chancel is the object of chief 
interest, the reputed monument of Sir Elidyr de Stakepol, 
with the knight stretched out in effigy on the top. There is 
no inscription visible. One side and the base are hidden 
by recent masonry. The effigy is cut in limestone, rep- 
resenting him as clad in Norman mail of fine-linked steel, 
showing only a portion of the face with slight mustache. 
There are small defences in plate armor for elbows, wrists, 
knees and legs below the knees. A long straight sword is 
in the grasp of his right hand, and a kite-shaped shield 
rests on his left arm. A dog lies as a support for his feet. 
If the shield ever bore a coat of arms painted thereon, as 
Fenton suggests, it is no longer traceable, though the greater 
part of the whitewash has been removed from the monu- 
ment. The legs are crossed at the knee after the manner 
of crusaders. The sarcophagus rests beneath a sculptured 
arch. There are six short figures on its frieze, in high 
relief, apparently in oriental costume. Three are males, 
three females. 

The effigy of his wife on the south side of the chancel 
has two small dogs at her feet, also two kneeling females, 
while the two males support her pillowed head. The head- 



40 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

dress is indeed singular and indescribable in any terms 
known to me. Four figures are on the frieze in high relief, 
two of them clad in Norman mail and sword. 

On the south side of the chancel and opening from it is a 
small chantry, in which what is said to be the original stone 
altar is preserved. It is said to be of the seventh century and 
may originally have been a gravestone. The same chantry 
contains two ancient efligies without inscription, a mask of 
some warrior in Norman mail, mural and floor inscrip- 
tions, commemorating the Lorts and Campbells from 1613 
A.D. down to recent times, in which the Court is called 
Stackpoole, Stackpool and Stackpole. 

All around the church outside lie the generations that 
have filled the past eight centuries. The rector kindly 
received me, invited me to lunch and afterward showed me 
through the grounds of Lord Cawdor. After leaving him 
I walked by a narrow winding path along the margin of 
the pond or inlet two miles or so to Broadhaven, at the 
mouth of which is the Stack Rock, which gives the name to 
the Pool. It stands several hundred yards from the shore 
and may rise to the height of one hundred feet, an irregular 
mass of wave-beaten rock. It was, doubtless, eight cen- 
turies ago much larger than it now is. The pool, which 
(once was probably an inlet of two miles or more in length 
and a refuge for small vessels, is now filled up with sand 
nearly to its mouth, a process hastened by the building of 
the dam and eight-arch bridge, over which I passed. The 
sand barrens on the cliff east of the Pool are an excellent 
rabbit warren, and here have been found relics of Roman 
origin. The view of Stackpole Head, a massive promon- 
tory, is bold and beautiful. Just around it is a little port 
and wharf called Stackpole Quay, which with its surround- 
ings forms one of the most pleasing views on the estate. 

Other members of the Stakepol family found in old 
English records are "David de Stakepole, parson of the 
church at Okeford", probably in northern Pembrokeshire, 
in 1297; "Adam Stakpol, chaplain, who has estate in the 
chantry of St. Edmond, in the church of Wodyton, in the 
Isle of Wight", in 1380 ; Mary Stackpole, who married Rich-

pole, citizen and fruiterer of London, dwelling in the parish 
of St. Saviour, Southwark, who made his will in 1599, 
naming only wife Margaret and daughter Margaret. 



II 

STACPOLE FAMILY IN IRELAND 

The statement in the heraldic inquests of 1776, that Rob- 
ert Stacpoole was the founder of the family in Dublin, has 
no foundation, neither is the statement to be relied upon, 
made by Henry Owen, that Philip Stackpole of about the 
year 1200 or earlier was the progenitor of the Irish Stack- 
poles. There was no Philip till the one mentioned in 1247. 

It has been shown in the previous chapter that Richard 
de Stakepol was in Ireland in 1175, and it is probable that 
he went thither with Strongbow in 1169. We learn noth- 
ing more of him. It may be supposed that the Stacpoles 
of Cork and adjacent counties were descended from him. 
We find Elias Stakepol mayor of Cork in 1249. The family 
must have been there some time before one of their number 
could have attained that office. Possibly Elias in the record 
is a modification of Elidyr. 

In the year 1251 Philip Stakepol held three carucates 
of land, by the service of one-eighth of one knight's fee, 
of Gerard de Prendergast, in Benneer or Dufglas, co. Cork, 
and at the same time John Stakepol held one-half of one 
fee, by the service of one-fourth of one knight's fee, at 
Balacha, co. Cork.^ 

In 1291 John Stakepol of Cork and Agnes his wife are 
mentioned, the same perhaps who held land of John de 
Cogan in 1295. At this last date Philip Stakepol of Cork 
was pardoned for some offence.^ 

William Stakepol of Cork is mentioned in 1298 and 1302. 
Abraham de Stakepol was mayor of Cork in 1321. Elias 
de Stakepol was mayor of Cork in 1342. Andrew Stakepol 

^Calendar of Documents, 3203. 
^Calendar of Judiciary Rolls, p. 70. 



STACPOLE FAMILY IN IRELAND 43 

was a merchant of Cork in 1356, complaining with others 
to the king, that their vessel, on its way from Bordeaux to 
Cork, had been seized. Andrew Stakepol was mayor of 
Cork in 1392. 

The branch of the family in co. Kerry was probably an 
offshoot from that of Cork. In 1282 Simon de Stackpool 
was a juror in that county and is mentioned as a bondsman 
in 1285, when also Reymond Stakepol was juror and bonds- 
man there. In 1295 Nicholas Stakepol is named as a coro- 
ner, of Kerry. In 1346 William Stakepoll, knight, was 
made Justice of the Peace and in 1355 he seems to have 
been High Sheriff of the county. At the last date Patrick 
Stakepoll and Maurice Stakepoll were officials in co. Kerry. 
In 1346 the king commissioned John, son of John Stakeboll, 
keeper of the castle of Balyten, as long as it is pleasing to 
the king, with fee of forty marks yearly. In 1382 Thomas 
Stakepoll was an official in co. Kerry, the same perhaps 
who is mentioned in 1346 as Thomas Stakebold. 

From Cork and Kerry the family spread into Kilkenny, 
Tipperary and Limerick counties. In 1299 Thomas Stake- 
pol was sergeant at Waterford. In 1298 Roger de Stake- 
polton was plaintiff in a court at Limerick. In 1539 
Patrick Stacboll, abbot, with the consent of the convent, sur- 
rendered the abbey of the Blessed Virgin Mary of the Rock 
of Cashel. He was granted a pension of £4 in 1540. Rob- 
ert Stacbolde, chaplain, witnessed a paper in 1549. In 
1547-8 were pardoned Thomas Fitz Richard Stacapoll, 
Walter Fitz Richard Stacapowell, of Knochanfraghe, Ed- 
ward Stacbolde of Thurles, Walter and John Stackbold of 
Templemore. 

The public records of Ireland mention forty persons 
named Stacpole (spelled in various ways) as pardoned for 
some political offences during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, 
1558-1603, they having taken part in the frequent insurrec- 
tions. It is noticeable how in the spelling of the surname 
a b was often substituted for p and a c for k, making Stac- 
bold instead of Stakepol. The old name, Stakepol, of Pem- 
brokeshire, persisted in Ireland about three centuries. 
Then the family became sufficiently Irish to change k to c. 



44 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

and clerks misspelled the surname, putting b in place of p. 
Nearly all the first or Christian names are of Norman 
origin. 

A branch of the Pembrokeshire Stakepols settled in 
Dublin and spread into adjacent counties. Walter Stakepol 
is on the citizen roll of that city about the year 1190. 
Walter and William Stakepol are mentioned in the register 
of the Abbey of St. Thomas, earlier than 1268, as sometime 
land-owners in Dublin. Richard Stackpool was a juror 
in Dublin in 1282. Robert Stakepol of Dublin is mentioned 
in 1297, William Stakepol in 1301, John Stakepol in 1299, 
1301, 1296, bailiff in 1308, and land-owner repeatedly 
1306-1336. Robert Stakbold, Stakebold, Stakebolle, was 
sheriff in Dublin in 1374, provost in 1376 and 1386, attor- 
ney for Henry Kyng in 1391 and mayor in 1401. He had 
a son, John, who was perhaps a commissioner in 1435. 

Henry Stakepol was on a board of inquisition, at Ros- 
common, in 1301. William Stakepol was a commissioner 
in CO. Meath in 1411, and William Stakboll is mentioned 
as clericus in 1435. John Stakboll was rector at Kilty in 
1450, the same, probably, as the Dr. John Stackbolle of the 
Abbey of Navan, in 1460. 

During the fifteenth century there was a large emigra- 
tion from other parts of Ireland to Limerick, and the Stac- 
poles appear in prominent positions. The Histories of 
Limerick by Ferrar (1767), Fitzgerald and McGregor 
(1826), and Lenihan (1866), all give chronological lists of 
Provosts and Bailiffs, or, as they were called after 1609, 
Mayors and Sheriffs. They agree substantially, with only 
slight variations. Between the years 1455 and 1688 more 
than a score of times these offices were held by persons 
named Stacpole, variously spelled. It shows that the fam-

We now come to an historical character, of whom there 
is more definite information. Bartholomew Stacpole, who 
is mentioned as a merchant in Limerick in 1591 and appears 
in the above list as bailiff in 1596, had a son James, who 
married Christian, daughter of Nicholas Comyn, by whom 
he had a son, Bartholomew, born in 1619, who married 
Mary, daughter of Dr. Thomas F. Arthur of Limerick. 

This Bartholomew Stacpole was Recorder of Limerick 
and signed the capitulation of that city to the troops of 
Cromwell commanded by Gen. Henry Ireton, 27 Oct. 1651. 
He with several Stacpoles was "transplanted" to co. Clare, 
that is, they were deprived of their estates, and other 
estates of one third, or in some cases of two thirds, their 
value were assigned to them. The transplantation certifi- 
cates of the Stacpoles give us a picture of the family two 
and a half centuries ago and read as follows : — 

"1653. Bartholomew Stackpoole made a declaration 
that he was aged 34 years, of indifferent tall stature, flaxen 
hair; John Stackpoole, aged 28 years, tall stature, flaxen 
hair ; Thomas Stackpoole, James Stackpoole, son to the said 
Barthw S., aged 10; Christian daur. to the said Barthw., 
aged 8 ; Diphna, another dau of the said B., aged 6 ; Arthur, 
son to the said Barthw." 



46 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

John and Thomas were brothers of Bartholomew. There 
were also transplanted "Clement Stacpoll, aged 26 years, 
flaxen hair, low stature; Ellis, his wife, black hair, tall 
stature"; also "Ignatius Stacpoole of Limerick, orphant, 
aged eleven years, flaxen hair, full face, low stature ; Kath- 
erine Stacpoole, orphant, sister to the said Ignatius, aged 
eight years, flaxen hair, full face, having no substance to 
relieve themselves, but desireth the benefit of his claim 
before the Commissioners of the revenue."^ 

Bartholomew Stackpole settled at Enagh, where he 
named his residence "STACKPOLE COURT" in commem- 
oration of the old cradle of the family in Pembrokeshire, 
showing that the Norman origin of the family was well 
known more than two centuries and a half ago, and show- 
ing, too, how the name was then spelled. "Its picturesque 
ivied ruins stand among the lakes of Kilkishen." Barthol- 
omew's daughter, Dymphna, married Col. Edward Pery, 
ancestor of the Earls of Limerick. Their son, the Rev. 
Stackpole Pery, married Jane, daughter of Archdeacon 
Twigg of Limerick and left two sons and several daughters. 
Edmond Sexten Pery, his heir, born 1718, was Speaker of 
the Irish House of Commons, and was raised to the peerage 
as Viscount Pery in 1786. One of the titles of the Earl of 
Limerick (1809-1844), found upon his sarcophagus in the 
Pery Chapel of Limerick Cathedral, is "Baron Foxford of 
Stackpole Court in the County of Clare." Through the mar- 
riage of Dymphna a large portion of the estates of Bartholo- 
mew Stackpole descended to the Earl of Limerick, which he 
still holds. 

The above-named Bartholomew Stacpole, merchant of 
Limerick in 1591, had a son, Robert, named in the Arthur 
Manuscripts as residing in Limerick with his son, Clement, 
in 1647. This Clement Stacpole is the one mentioned in the 
transplantation certificate. He married Ellis, daughter of 
Mahon McMahoney and settled at Annah, near Milltown

JOHN STACPOOLE OF CRAGBRIEN 



STACPOLE FAMILY IN IRELAND 47 

Malbry. Clement's son George married Bridget Woulfe and 
died about 1725. I saw at Edenvale, Ireland, an old slab, 
taken from a house at Ennis, with this inscription, "This 
house and the front was built and finished by Geoarge 
Stackpole merchant anno Domini 1687". 

One son of George and Bridget (Woulfe) Stackpole, or 
Stdcpoole, was John Stackpole of Cragbrien, born 1674, who 
died 18 April 1771, having married before 1720 Barbara 
Purdon. He was the barrister whose portrait appears in 
this book and who received such fulsome praise from his 
nephew. John had a brother, Francis Stackpola, of Cork, 
who married Catherine, daughter of Joseph and Mary (Cop- 
pinger) Romayne. A son of Francis was George, born in 
Cork 23 Aug. 1736 and died in Paris, 25 March 1824, un- 
married. George was for a time at Oxford University. In 
1763 he was High Sheriff of co. Clare. He inherited the 
estates of his uncle John of Cragbrien, who died intestate. 
George went to live in Grosvenor Place, London, and finally 
in Paris, where Louis XVIII made him a Count because of 
his wealth. At his decease in 1824 he is said to have had 
£600,000 deposited at Lafitte's Bank in Paris. The litiga- 
tion which had been going on fifty years between him and 
the next of kin was continued after his death, his will in 
favor of his illegitimate son having been set aside. This 
son was Richard Fitz George Stacpoole, bom 17 Aug. 1787. 
His mother was Kitty Gingell, who died at Sidmouth, 28 
Oct. 1809. He married Betsey, daughter of Major Francis 
and Margery (Simpson) Tulloch, and was created a Marquis 
in 1825 by Pope Leo XII and a Duke in 1830. The suits 
were compromised in 1828, half of the property in dispute 
going to Richard Fitz George Stacpoole and half to the next 
of kin of Count George Stacpoole and of his uncle. The 
Stacpooles of France had a chateau of some pretentions and 
ranked well in that country. Who's Who for 1915 declares 
that Duke George de Stacpoole, Justice of the Peace for co. 
Galway, Ireland, born in Paris 21 June 1860, only son of 
the third Duke de Stacpoole, and Maria only child of Thomas 
Dunn of Newcastle, married Pauline, only child of Edward

MacEvoy, M. P. for co. Meath, and that he has over seven 
thousand six hundred acres in Ireland. 

John Stacpoole of Cragbrien, Ireland, v^ho died in 1771, 
left a son, Capt. Charles Stacpoole. The oldest son of the 
latter was the late William Church Stacpoole of Kingstovv^n 
School, Dublin, who died 24 Dec. 1870, aged 55. He mar- 
ried, 1845, Charlotte Augusta Mountjoy. William Church 
Stacpoole was graduated from Trinity College, Dublin, in 
1842 and received the degrees, LL.D. in 1849, and D.D. in 

1869. Three of his children have become well known. 
One was William Henry Stacpoole, who was graduated from 
Trinity College in 1870 and was honored with LL.D. in 1880 ; 
another son is Henry de Vere Stacpoole, author of a score 
of books of fiction and poetry ; a daughter is Florence Stac- 
poole of London, lecturer and author of several medical 
works. — See Who's Who. Another daughter is Mrs. Mina 
Bremridge Briggs of London. 

Clement^ Stacpoole (Robert^ Bartholomew^ had another 
son, Williams who married Elinor, daughter of James Fors- 
ter of CO. Galway. Their son, George Stacpoole, married, 
about 1739, Mary, daughter of Col. Hugh Massy, and had 
sons. Massy, George Hogan, and William. The last was 
born 21 Aug. 1743 and married (1), about 1773, Dorothea, 
daughter of Thomas Burton, who died 2 Nov. 1775 and was 
buried in Bath Abbey, and (2) 1786, Honora, daughter of 
George Stamer and widow of Temple French of co. Cork. 
He died 30 Aug. 1796. He was graduated at Trinity Col- 
lege, Dublin, in 1766 and was High Sheriff of co. Clare in 
1784. His widow died at Lucca, Italy, 29 Sept. 1820, aged 
60, and was buried at Lucca. By the second marriage Will- 
iam had a son, Richard John Delazouche Stacpoole, born 21 
May 1792, who married, 15 March 1825, Jane, daughter of 
Andrew Stacpoole of Ballyalla, and died 9 Oct. 1860, leaving 
a son, Richard Stacpoole, born 19 Aug. 1828. He married, 
9 Aug. 1868, Alice, daughter of John Westropp of Attyflin 
and died 16 June 1891, leaving two sons and three daugh- 
ters. His oldest son, Richard John Stacpoole, born 17 May 

1870, married 19 July 1894, Geraldine Norah, daughter of 
Thomas Hume Crowe of Toonah, and has at least a daugh-

ter, Norah Dorothy, and a son, Richard Hazzard Stacpoole, 
born 8 March 1896. This family has lived at Edenvale, 
Ennis, co. Clare, Ireland for over a century and a half. I 
called here in July, 1897, and was much aided in the study of 
the history of the Stackpole family. Edenvale is a fine resi- 
dence and a large estate of land. 

George Hogan Stacpoole (George^ William*, Clement', 
Robert-, Bartholomew^ , born 1745, died 1812. He had, be- 
sides other children, sons, Andrew and William Henry. 
Andrew was born 7 Nov. 1776. By his first wife, Bridget 
Comyn, he had a daughter, Jane, who married Richard John 
Delazouche Stacpoole. By his third wife, Diana, daughter 
of Daniel Finucane of Stamer Park, he had a son William 
of Ballyalla, who was born 9 Oct. 1830 and died 10 July 1879. 
He was member of Parliament for Ennis in 1860, '65, '68, 
and '74. He married Mary A. C. W. Hennessey and had a 
son, Guilford William Jack Stacpoole, born 1868. 

William Henry, son of George Hogan Stacpoole, was 
born 17 Jan. 1787. He was graduated at Trinity College, 
Dublin in 1809 and received the degree of D.D. in 1826. He 
was made Dean of Kilfenora 24 May 1825 and married, 
1813, Jane, daughter of Robert Marshall of Sandbrook, co. 
Carlow. He died 29 Jan. 1847 and his wife died in 1865. 
A daughter, Jane, married in 1844 Charles Mahon, and their 
son, Thomas George Stacpoole Mahon, is the one upon whose 
work is based the genealogy of the Stacpooles of co. Clare, 
Ireland. With him I had some correspondence and received 
from him much assistance. He was born 11 July 1848 and 
married, 1886, Honorable Geraldine Mary O'Brien, daughter 
of 14th Lord Inchiquin. 

Philip Stacpole, born 1656, is thought to have been the 
grandson of the Bartholomew Stacpole, merchant of Lim- 
erick in 1591. He was an alderman and sheriff of Limerick. 
He died in 1717 and mentioned in his will a mortgage from 
"Bartholomew Stackpole Esq.", also a sister Elizabeth 
Granwell, a cousin, John Stackpole, and grandson Alison. 
He left sons, Philip, James, merchants of Cork, Patrick and 
Thomas; also daughters, Anne wife of John Roche, Jane 
wife of Lawrence Creagh, Lucy England, Christian Woulfe,

Ellen England and Katherine Ivory. In the southwest 
corner of St. Mary's Cathedral, Limerick, is the Pery Chapel. 
I visited it in July 1897 and copied the following inscription, 
found on a slab of gray sandstone, the top of a sarcophagus 
about ten feet long and seven feet wide, rising above the 
floor about three feet.

ALSO - HIS - WIFE - JANE - CREAGH, 
WHO - DECEASED - MAY - YE 3th - 1717,

Burke's History of the Commoners says that this Philip 
was son of James Stacpole and Christian, daughter of Denis 
McMahon of Clonagh, but this does not agree with the reg- 
istered pedigree at Dublin. He says also that Philip had 
three brothers who fell in the battle of Aughrim. 

St. Mary's Cathedral and churchyard around it is, doubt- 
less, the burial place of many generations of Stacpoles. 
Nicholas Stacpole of Limerick, merchant, made his will, 3 
Jan. 1622, and expressed the desire to be buried in St. 
George's Chapel in St. Mary's Cathedral. He names in his 
will sons, Nicholas, John and James, wife Phillis, and broth- 
ers James and John. 

Similarity of names points to Limerick as the early home 
of James Stacpole, the emigrant to New England earlier 
than 1680. With information at hand it is impossible to 
trace the connection. Certainly the Stacpole family was 
more numerous in counties Limerick and Clare at that time 
than elsewhere in Ireland. 

The information given in this chapter is based mainly 
upon the MS. of Mr. Thomas George Stacpoole Mahon 
(1883) annotated, revised and enlarged by Mr. Thomas J. 
Westropp (1888). Mr. Mahon based his work upon an 
Edenvale pedigree, "originally dictated by William Stacpoole 
of Claghanatinny, in Paris, in 1824, on the occasion of the 
great law-suit there against Count George Stacpoole", and 



STACPOLE FAMILY IN IRELAND 51 

compiled by Mr. Francis Moore, dated Paris Aug. 1824. 
Mr. Mahon made extensive investigations, which have been 
amply supplemented by Mr. Westropp. I made some study 
of the wills and a registered pedigree at Dublin, the last 
found at the Herald's College, but gathered little additional 
information therefrom, and the correctness of the Dublin 
pedigrees is doubted.

THE COAT OF ARMS 

The Harleian Roll of Arms, assigned to the reign of 

Henry III (1216-1272), contains the name " 

Stakepol." 

In the Parliamentary Roll of Arms, of date about 1300 
A.D., is found in old Norman French the following: — Sire 
Richard de stakepol de argent a un lion rampant de goules 
od le Coler de or, i.e., a red rampant lion having a gold col- 
lar, on a silver shield. This is the coat of arms of the old 
Stakepol family of Pembrokeshire, Wales, to which all de- 
scendants are equally entitled as an historic emblem, and to 
which no one is entitled by strict laws of heraldry, since 
nobody can prove a direct descent. The Edenvale branch 
of the family, in Ireland, assumed it some time ago, at 
first without the gold collar, and have added a crest, viz., 
"On a ducal coronet a pelican in her piety, all ppr" i.e., a 
pelican feeding in their nest three of her young with drops 
of blood drawn from her own breast, according to an old 
legend. Under the Arms is the motto, PRO DEO ET PRO 
PATRIA; over the crest, I DIE FOR THOSE I LOVE. 
Some of this family a century ago, either by mistake or as 
a mark of cadency, reversed the colors and had a silver lion 
on a red shield. 

It was told me in Ireland that the origin of the crest 
was as follows. Over the door of the Sexten Vault, outside 
the wall of the Pery Chapel of St. Mary's Cathedral, Lim- 
erick, is a corbel in the center flanked to the left with a 
seven-headed dragon as type of antichrist and to the right 
with a pelican as type of Christ. The bird is pouring its 
blood over its dying young to revive them, not feeding them 
as in the present crest. Both are symbolic, one of the atone-

ment, the other of the sacrament. Finding this device on 
the burial place of Philip Stacpole the Stacpooles of co. 
Clare adopted the good emblem as a crest, and the English 
motto is, of course, suggested by it and is quite superflu- 
ous. It has been in use, perhaps, two centuries. In the 
earliest seal of the family in co. Clare, Ireland, about 1760, 
the pelican's young are omitted. 

The Golden Grove Book, a genealogical account of old 
families in Wales, owned by Earl Cawdor and kept in Lon- 
don, gives the ancient Stakepol coat of arms, "Argent, three 
mullets sable." There is no record of its use by any 
branch of the family. 

Edmonson's Complete Body of Heraldry (London, 1780), 
under the name Stakepoule, gives another coat of arms, "Az. 
a chev. ar. betw. three crescents or", i.e. on a blue field a sil- 
ver chevron between three golden crescents. In later works 
on heraldry this does not appear, and the branch of the 
family that bore it is presumably extinct. 

Burke's General Armory for 1878 gives also the follow- 
ing : — "Stackpoole. Or, an heraldic tiger pass. sa. Crest, — 
On a rock a fort in flames." It is not known to what branch 
of the family this belongs. 



IV 
JAMES STACPOLE THE EMIGRANT 

In the Biddeford branch of the family a descendant, of 
the fourth generation, tells the story that his ancestor, 
James Stacpole, was "taken prisoner on the coast of Ireland 
when a boy only 14 years old and brought to this country". 
No other account of his coming has been received. The 
story has some probability, since it is well known that many 
were brought from Ireland and Scotland by force.^ 

Some have thought that he came from Sligo, Ireland, be- 
cause he lived in ancient Dover near to a place called "Sligo", 
that indeed he brought the name with him. But no deeds 
or other records speak of James Stacpole as living at Sligo. 
The locality that bore that name centered about Sligo garri- 
son, nearly a mile further south. The earliest mention of it 
found in public records is in 1708. There is an account of 
the family of James Stackpole of Waterville, Maine, found 
in North's History of Augusta. It was probably furnished 
by the James Stackpole who graduated at Bowdoin College 
in 1819. He says that his "immigrant ancestor was James 

iRev. Joseph B. Felt, in his History of Ipswich, Mass., p. 319, 
says, "Among the crying wrongs to some of our race was that of 
stealing young people, transporting them to America and selling them 
into servitude. Two of such sufferers were sold in 1654 to a respec- 
table gentleman of Ipswich [Samuel Symonds] for nine years, for 
£26 in corn or cattle. They were William Downing and Philip Welch. 
They were brought to Boston in the ship Goodfellow. They with 
others lived in Ireland, all of whom were forcibly taken from their 
beds at night by men dressed as English soldiers, and compelled to 
go on board the vessel in which they came. The persons who prac- 
ticed such a crime were called 'Spirits'. A royal order of England 
was passed against them in 1682". — N. E. Hist. Gen. Register, XIX, 
55, 56. 

Many Irish had come before 1654 in like manner. Gov. Simon 
Bradstreet conjectured in 1680 that there were then living sixty 
such Irish immigrants and 120 Scots, who had been sold as "servants". 



JAMES STACPOLE THE EMIGRANT 55 

Stackpole of Sligo, Ireland, who came over in 1680." He 
simply repeats an old tradition. Another tradition says 
that James Stacpole came from Cork, Ireland. Sligo, Ire- 
land, was utterly burned and its inhabitants were bar- 
barously massacred in the year 1653, and in January 1655 
proposals were made to repeople the town and lands there- 
abouts with emigrants from New England. A few actually 
returned. It is improbable that James Stacpole came from 
Sligo, Ireland, to New England a few years later. I visited 
Sligo, Ireland, in 1897 and made inquiries of the town clerk 
and oldest inhabitants. There are no records of any Stac- 
pole in that place, and they said the name was utterly 
unknown there. 

Where and how James Stacpole lived before the year 
1680 is not known. In April of that year he is first men- 
tioned in the "Cochecho Province Rate" as taxed two shil- 
lings and one penny-. In December of the same year he is 
incidentally mentioned as hauling boards from Thomas 
Holmes' mill at Salmon Falls to Cochecho Point. In 1681 he 
was taxed in Dover four shillings and one penny and the fol- 
lowing year his tax was eight shillings and two pennies. It 
was in 1680 that he signed a petition^ with the inhabitants 
of Kittery, to King Charles II, asking for abatement of 
taxes, thus indicating a previous residence in that town, 
which then included Kittery, Eliot, South Berwick, Berwick 
and North Berwick, stretching thirty miles along the Pascat- 
aqua, Newichawannock and Salmon Falls rivers. 

In 1680 he settled as a squatter in Dover, now Rollins- 
ford, New Hampshire, on land that had been granted in 
1656 to Joseph Austin. None of the Austin family ever 
lived here. The next lot north had been granted to Henry 
Tibbetts at the same time. James Stacpole cleared a por- 
tion of both lots and built his house on that of Austin. 
Later Philip Stacpole, son of James, built a house on the 
lot of Tibbetts. In 1717 Samuel Tibbetts Jr. claimed the

land on which Philip Stacpole was living. There was a law 
suit about it, as to ownership of thirteen acres of land 
bounded "at the southeast end by Newichawannock river, 
beginning at the mouth of the first cove above Little John's 
falls, on the southwest side by Joseph Austin's lot, from 
thence thirty-five rods north east 42 deg up Newichawon- 
nock River to a piece of land in possession of Thomas Tib-

possessed by sd Tho : Tibbetts Junr four score and six rods

to Henrey Tebbetts of Dover aforesd by the town of Dover, 
to say an hundred acres in the year fifty six laid out ye 2d 
12th 1658". Dated 17 July 1717. 

In the suit evidence was introduced to show that James 
Stacpole, father of Philip, had long lived on and improved 
that land, among the evidence being the following deposi- 
tions : —

By judgment of the court Samuel Tibbetts paid to James 
Stacpole £200 and costs of the suit, amounting to £2 sl4. 



JAMES STACPOLE THE EMIGRANT 57 

The original deeds of both lots are among the Court Files in 
this suit. 

Thus it is proved that James Stacpole was living on the 
farm that he held for life in the year 1680. Perhaps he 
had been there earlier, but probably his residence had been 
in upper Kittery, now South Berwick, previous to that date. 
May 20, 1710, he received a deed from Thomas Austin, only 
son of Joseph Austin, who conveyed to him "for twenty 
pounds of current money all that tract of land granted to 

said Joseph Austin in 1656," "lying in ye range of 

lots between St. Alban's Cove and Quamphegan", bounded 
south-east by the Newichawannock river, north-east by 
Henry Tibbetts' hundred acre lot, north-west by Ralph 
Twombly's hundred acres and Thomas Hanson's hundred 
acres, and south-west by a highway between this lot and 
Thomas Kenne's (Canney) hundred acre lot. The lot pur- 
chased contained a hundred acres of rich land. That the 
price paid was only a nominal one is shown by the fact that 
only four years later, 30 Nov. 1714, he sold forty acres of 
upland from this lot to William Frost for one hundred and 
twenty pounds. 

A brook flowed through his farm which is still called 
Stackpole's Brook, as it was in old deeds. The location of 
James Stacpole's house is shown in 1709, in the return of 
the Sligo road, laid out that year, 

"Beginning at y« east End of ye old way that Leads from the head 
of Fresh Creek to St. Albans Cove, and from that end of that way it

The road as laid out followed pretty closely a path that 
had long been in use. The road that ran down on the north 
side of Thomas Canney's lot and separated it from the lot 
of James Stacpole was never formally laid out. It seems 
to have been abandoned after more than a century of use. 
There are indications that previous to the year 1800, in 
place of the intended road close to the division line, a road 
ran up through the valley just south of Stackpole's Brook, 
thus avoiding the hill. Traces of this may be seen up in 
the woods. 

Thus we see that James Stacpole had built a house just 
north of the creek called Stackpole Brook some time before 
he took a deed of the farm from Austin. That house was 
the one afterward dwelt in by Joshua Stacpole and his family 
from 1743 till 1831. It was removed to St. Albans Cove by 
Ebenezer Stackpole. It is still standing and occupied. The 
old entrance was in the middle of what is now the south side. 

About the time that the Indians came down on Salmon 
Falls, in 1689, James Stacpole moved to the other side of the 
river for protection and for several years kept an "ordinary" 
or tavern a few rods east of the old cemetery at Great 
Works, on the spot where later lived the Rev. John Wade 
and the Rev. Jeremiah Wise. The Court of Sessions at 
York, Maine, 4 July 1693, made the following record, 
"Lycence is granted to James Stagpole of barwick to sell 
by retaile beere. Cyder, rum, provision and lodging, he giv- 
ing ten pounds bond to their Majesties to observe the laws 
in that case provided". The license was renewed annually 
up to 1698, and his place was called a "publick house of 
entertainment". A supply of ardent spirits at such places 
was in those times the rule without exception. It is true 
that this, as usual, led to some disorders, and James Stac- 
pole was complained of and once fined twenty shillings and 




HOUSE OF JAMES STACPOLE, 1680. 



JAMES STACPOLE THE EMIGRANT 59 

admonished ; yet his license was at the same time renewed. 
He bought the place where he lived in Berwick parish, 2 
Nov. 1696, for fifteen pounds and sold the same, 22 Nov. 
1699, to John Wade, minister. At the later date he is called 
"James Stackpoll of Dover in New Hampsheir, husband- 
man". The land was three and one-fourth acres, "near the 
meeting house", bounded on the southeast by the way going 
from the Great Work to the river, northwest by the bury- 
ing place, "with all the housing, trees, fences and Privileges 
pertaining thereto". The burying place still is used and 
enables us to point out the spot where James Stacpole lived 
in what is now South Berwick. It is on the hill just south 
of Great Works river. Two large elm trees are standing, 
and between these trees was the gateway leading to the 
parsonage. Hence the place is still called "Wise's Gate- 
way". It is a little east of the cemetery, and the church at 
that time must have been very near. 

James Stacpole had grants of land in both Dover and 
Kittery. 

"April ye 11, 1694. By the committee chosen by the freeholders 
of ye town of Dover for granting land, given and granted unto James 
Stagpole his heirs and assigns forever, fifty acres of land above 
Indigo Hill near Salmon Falls River, not intrenching upon any former 
grant. 

This grant was confirmed in town meeting five days 
later. It was laid out to John Ricker, 2 May 1735, on the 
west side of Blackwater Brook. 

The town records of Kittery declare that, 16 July 1702, 
there were lotted and laid out to James Stagpole Senr 
twenty acres of land, part of a grant made in 1694 to Gil- 
bert Warren. Four acres of it were on the north side of 
Great Works river ; the rest on the south side, extending to 
the York line, adjoining Warren's land. The land passed 
into the possession of James Stacpole, Jr. and was be- 
queathed by him to his brother John. May 20, 1728, John 
Stackpole sold it to Gilbert Warren. 

Feb. 23, 1726, James Stacpole of Dover sold to Nathan 
Lord of Berwick "a certain grant of land containing fifty 



60 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

acres granted to me at a legal town meeting held at Kittery 
May the tenth 1703". 

Rev. Alonzo Quint, D.D., is responsible for the state- 
ment that James Stacpole "was born 1653, had a grant 1694, 
died 23 Aug. 1733". I know not on what authority this 
erroneous statement is made. Depositions fix approxi- 
mately the year of his birth. The first is as follows : —

JAMES STACPOLE THE EMIGRANT 61 

According to this deposition James Stacpole was born 
in the year 1654, but ages were not accurately given in 
many old depositions. He married, quite certainly before 
1680, Margaret, daughter of James and Margaret Warren 
of the parish of Berwick. 

James Warren deposed, 13 Sept. 1701, aged eighty years, 
that he had lived in upper Kittery "near fiftie years". ' He 
came, then, in 1651, when Richard Leader brought his Scots 
from the Lynn Iron Works to run the saw-mill at Great 
Works. He had been taken prisoner in the battle of Dun- 
bar, by Oliver Cromwell, 3 September 1650, and sent with 
one hundred and fifty prisoners to Boston on the ship Unity. 
So many of them settled in upper Kittery that it was called 
"the Parish of Unity" before it was called Berwick. There 
is evidence that James Warren came from Berwick, Scot- 
land. There was lotted and laid out to him, 15 July 1656, 
land on the north side of John Taylor's lot, "by the water 
side", fronting on Cow Cove". He died in 1702 and his 
wife in 1713, as their wills show. Their children were : — 

1. Gilbert b. 1654, married Sarah, daughter of James 
and Elizabeth Emery and widow of John Thompson. His 
will, 2 April 1728 — 17 April 1733, names wife Sarah and 
daughters Jane Stockbridge and Margaret Hearl, and son- 
in-law (step-son), John Thompson. Jane married John 
Stockbridge, 11 Dec. 1718. Margaret married William 
Hearl, 15 Dec. 1717. 

2. Margaret, married James Stacpole. 

3. Jane, married William Grant, 4 Aug. 1690. 

4. James, married, 1691, Mary, daughter of John and 
Mary (Chadbourne) Fost of Dover, who was born in 1667, 
as a deposition shows. Five children recorded in Kittery. 

5. Grizel born 6 March 1662, married (1) Richard 
Otis, as his third wife. He and a daughter were killed in 
the Dover massacre of 1689, and Grizel and her babe, Mar- 
garet, were carried as captives to Canada, where the fol- 
lowing record has been found : —

Mary Madeleine Warren, daughter of James of Berwick, Scot- 
land, and Margaret (an Irishwoman), born 6 March 1662, in New 
England, taken in War 18 (28) June 1689; baptized 9 May 1693; 
married 1st Richard Theys (Otis) ; 2d 15 Oct. 1693 Philip Robitaile, 
in Montreal, in the service of M. de Maricour. 

Grizel lived to the age of 89 years and was buried 27 
Oct. 1750, having had five children by her second marriage. 
Her daughter, Margaret Otis, was baptized as Christine and 
married, 14 June 1707, a Frenchman whose surname was 
Le Beau and whose first name resembled in English, Shar- 
rington, a name that has been repeated among her descend- 
ants in the Baker and Stackpole families. After the death 
of her husband, 26 Feb. 1713, she was not permitted to 
have her children, who were brought up in a convent. She 
returned to her friends in Dover, N. H., and married Capt. 
Thomas Baker of Northampton, Mass., by whom she had 
seven children. They moved to Dover about 1734, where 
she died 23 Feb. 1773, having lived "a pattern of industry, 
prudence and economy". Her grandaughter, Lucy Baker, 
married Joshua Stacpole. 

The will of James Warren, 9 Dec. 1700, contains the 
following items: — 

"I doe give unto my Daughter Margaret Stagpoal five shillings. 
I doe give unto my Granson James Stagpoal one heifer and one 
ewe and a young sow." 

The will of Margaret Warren, 13 Dec. 1712, has this 
item : — 

"I give and bequeath unto my Daughter Margaret Stackpole my 
Great Brass Kittle and two Blankits and one Coverlid and Ten yardes 
of Woling Cloath and my Greate Wooden Platter and one pare of 
sheets and all my wareing Cloath."'' 

A petition was dated 25 April 1715, by "The Inhabitanes 
that are Nerer ye New Meten house than ye old Cocheco 
Pint," asking to be assigned to the new place of worship, 
which was at what is now Dover city. Among the peti- 
tioners were "Jeames Stagpool" and "fileon Stagpool". The

names were written by an ignorant scribe, for well written 
signatures of James and his son Philip are found, and they 
always spelled the surname Stacpole, as was then the custom 
in Ireland. A footnote to the petition, as given in New 
Hampshire State Papers, explains that the petitioners were 
"nearer ye new Meeting house at Cocheco than to the old 
on Dover Neck". The new church at Cocheco was erected 
in 1713 and the inhabitants of "Sligo" and vicinity were 
rated there, though it is certain that they often found it 
more convenient to ford the "Sluiceway" and attend church 
at the Great Works settlement. 

James and Philip Stacpole signed a petition, 25 April 
1729, for a new parish in the north-east part of Dover. The 
petition was granted and Somersworth was made a parish, 
19 Dec. 1730. It was incorporated as a town, 22 April 1754. 
Rev. James Pike was the first pastor of this church. He 
died here 19 March 1792, after a pastorate of sixty-five 
years. The church records were burned with the parsonage 
in 1812. 

James Stacpole died in 1736, as shown by the inventory 
of his estate, made by Nathaniel Perkins and Thomas Wal- 
lingford, under date of 12 Aug. 1736. A full copy is here 
appended.

In his old age James Stacpole lived down by the river, 
near the old wading place, which was at the head of Little 



64 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

Johns Falls. The spot is easily found by the bricks which 
the frost brings to surface. It is probable that here he 
built a log cabin before the year 1680 and that he returned 
to it in his declining years, leaving the house north of the 
brook to his son Samuel. Five pounds was all the old shack 
was worth. His widow Margaret had the use of it till her 
death and then the house and three acres passed into the 
possession of Thomas Wallingford. The price paid for it 
was one hundred and twenty pounds. 

In the militia, to which every able-bodied man belongs, 
James Stacpole and all his sons did military service, and 
they were often called out to defend life and property, for 
the Indians had reason for special hatred toward Dover and 
Berwick. He had no opportunity, like his ancestors, under 
William the Conqueror and Strongbow, to seize the castles 
and cultivated estates of the conquered and so make himself 
and family rich. He conquered a hundred acres of wooded 
wilderness by the hard labor of a husbandman, saw his 
children comfortably settled in similar employments, and 
lived to behold his great-grandchildren. The record indi- 
cates a courageous, honest, industrious and prosperous 
private citizen. 

He was buried on a hill-top of his farm, in a private 
graveyard, of which more will be said in the following chap- 
ter. His children, as gathered from wills, deeds and other 
documents, were as follows: — 

2. James, died in 1706. Unmarried. 

3. John m. Elizabeth Brown and lived in Biddeford. 

4. Catherine m. Alexander Junkins of York. 

5. William, named in his brother's will. 

6. Margaret m. Jonathan Young of York. 

7. Philip m. (1) Mercy Thompson, (2) widow Martha 
Stevens. 

8. Honor, m. Joseph Freathy of York. 

9. Samuel, died in 1758. Probably unmarried. 



V 
THE OLD FARM 

It has been stated already that the one hundred acres of 
land, granted by the town of Dover to Joseph Austin, in 
1656, were bought of his son, Thomas Austin, in 1710, 
by James Stacpole, who had been living on the farm 
since 1680 and perhaps from an earlier date. In the year 
1709, when the Sligo road was laid out, James Stacpole's 
house is mentioned as a little way north of a small brook. 
On the lot north, originally granted to Henry Tebbetts, 
Philip Stacpole had built a house earlier than 1717, and this 
house and adjacent land were awarded by court to Samuel 
Tebbetts on his payment to James Stacpole of £200 and costs 
of suit. 

The original grant was supposed to be a strip of land 
forty rods wide on the river and running back four hundred 
rods in a northwesterly direction. When the lots were 
surveyed this form was found to be inconvenient, and so a 
lot was laid out about seventy rods wide on the river and 
tapering back in the shape of a long, truncated wedge. The 
forty acres sold by James Stacpole to William Frost in 1714 
were from the northwesterly end of the farm. This portion 
was sold to Benjamin Hoeg in 1721 and by him to Samuel 
Emerson the following year. In 1760 it was in the pos- 
session of Benjamin Warren, in whose family it remained 
a long time. 

In his old age James Stacpole divided his homestead be- 
tween his sons, Philip and Samuel, reserving a three acre lot 
of the southeast corner for himself. The deed to Philip 
was dated Nov. 17, 1732. It conveyed the northern part of 
his farm, fifteen rods wide on the river and varying in 
breadth "to ye uppermost Corner or point of my land next 



66 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

to ye Meeting house", "Excepting al ye old Apple trees yt I 
sot formerly which I do reserve dureing ye life of me & my 
wife for our own use". The lot contained sixteen acres. 

April 20, 1734, James Stacpole, for "paternal love & 
affection", conveyed the southern part of his farm, fifty 
acres, to his son Samuel, extending from the river towards 
the meeting house and bounded on the south by land of 
Thomas Hobbs, with buildings thereon, "Excepting & 
Reserveing unto my Self out of ye premises ye House 
wherein I now live & ye land whereon it Stands & to extend 
from Ye House towards Capt. Wallingfords house by ye 
River & ye little field before my Dore adjoining to Thomas 
Hobbs land Being in al about two or three acres be it more 
or less & lying on ye South & South westerly side of ye Road 
yt leads from Thos Hobbss House to ye Gutter Behinde my 
own House", providing also that James and his wife Mar- 
garet should have half the produce of the land conveyed 
during their lives, including "half of ye Syder jrt may be 
made." 

"Ye Gutter Behinde my own House" is plainly seen 
today, leading to the old wading place opposite Chadbourne's 
mill, at the head of Little Johns Falls. Just south of this 
gutter and two rods from the river bank I found many 
bricks and a piece of broken crockery, perhaps a portion 
of a teacup. Here stood the house of James Stacpole, the 
last and perhaps the first he lived in. His house faced 
southerly, and the little field before his door extended to 
Capt. Thomas Wallingford's house, who lived two or three 
rods from the river and just south of another wading place 
at the foot of Little Johns Falls. The house and three 
acre lot where James Stacpole spent his last days came into 
the possession of Capt. Thomas Wallingford after the death 
of James Stacpole's widow, Margaret. 

April 20, 1743, Samuel Stacpole sold to his nephew, 
Joshua Stacpole, a small lot of land, five rods by eleven, on 
which stood the house in which James Stacpole was living 
in 1709, just north of Stacpole Brook and including a part 
of the present highway. Just east of it was the Landing 
Place and a bridge over the brook, for the repair of which 



THE OLD FARM 67 

the town paid in the year 1800, "for plank for Stacpole's 
bridge, $5.44". 

On this small lot of land lived Joshua Stacpole as a 
blacksmith. Here his widow Abigail was living in 1795. It 
seems that her youngest son, Tobias, inherited the property, 
and he willed it to his son, Ebenezer Stacpole in 1821. 
Jonathan Whitehouse, who married Lucy Stacpole, was then 
living in the house. Ebenezer Stacpole lived here till about 
1830, when he moved the house to St. Albans Cove, and the 
land was purchased of Tobias Stacpole by Samuel Hale, 10 
Jan. 1831. The house was put in its new location in spite 
of the public protest of Mr. Roberts, as tradition says, but 
the location seems to be described in a deed from Daniel 
Goodwin to Aaron Stacpole, dated 26 July, 1765, forty-eight 
rods of land on the road from St. Albans Cove to Quamphe- 
gan seventeen rods from a stone near the brook that empties 
into the cove. The house is still in good condition and ten- 
anted. Originally the main entrance was in the middle of 
the southern side. 

After the death of Samuel Stacpole in 1758 most of his 
land through several transfers came into the possession of 
his nephew, William Stacpole, son of Philip, and Joshua 
Roberts got the rest, as a deed shows, 

Sept. 2, 1758, "Honour Freethy of York widow and sister of 
Samuel Stackpole of Summersworth dec^ Joseph Junkins & Alexan- 
der Junkins yeomen Mary Carlisle widow Daniel Mclntire husband- 
man & Mary his wife all of York afores^ which sd Joseph, Alexander, 
Mary and Mercy are children and heirs of Catherine Junkins late of 
the same York deed another sister of said Samuel Stackpole deed" 
sold all rights in the estate of Samuel Stackpole to Joshua Roberts 
of Berwick.— N. H. Prov. Deeds, Vol. 56, p. 392. 

Jan. 7, 1760, Joshua Roberts of Berwick and Ruth his 
wife sold to Jacob Lincoln Jr. of Somersworth eleven acres 
and a half, according to a division agreed upon between 
William Stacpole and himself. The lot began two rods and 
a half south of Joshua Stacpole's half acre of land and lay 
on both sides of Stacpole Brook "excluding ye land James 
Stackpole's house Stands on". — N. H. Prov. Deeds, Vol. 58, 
p. 463. 



68 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

Rachel, widow of Jacob Lincoln, mariner, and daughter 
of Capt. Thomas Wallingford, married Silas Nowell, and 
June 29, 1768, her widow's third of this land was set off to 
her by a committee, "three acres of land with the build- 
ings on the same". The whole lot of eleven acres and a 
half became known as "The Lincoln Lands". The house, 
afterward called "the Dore house", was built before 1764, 
probably by Jacob Lincoln. 

The house of James Stacpole, son of Philip, in 1760 was 
south of the brook and in the middle of the present road. 
William Stacpole may have lived on the hill-top, near to 
the cellar of the house owned by Thomas Hobbs, where 
traces of a house and well may be seen. Much later a 
family named Odiorne lived here. 

April 25, 1794, William Stacpole sold all his land to 
Nathan Lord "with the dwelling house and barn thereon 
standing", and the same day Nathan Lord leased the same 
to William Stacpole so long as he or his wife should live. 
July 9, 1794, Nathan Lord acquired the Lincoln Lands, 
except the houses and small lots previously owned by James^ 
Stacpole and Rachel Lincoln. The heirs of Nathan Lord 
sold the lands to Samuel Hale April 5, 1826. Charles 
Gushing then lived where Thomas Hobbs once lived, and 
the hill was known as Cushing's Hill. 

March 18, 1826, Stephen Stacpole of Somersworth, 
tailor, for $100 paid by the selectmen sold to the town a 
certain tract or parcel of land in said town of Somersworth, 
where the said Stephen Stacpole now dwells bounded on the 
northwest by land formerly owned by Capt. Nathan Lord 
of said Somersworth deceased and by the road leading from 
Quamphegan landing (to Sligo so called) on the southeast, 

Containing about one acre be the same more or less, 

for the use of said town of Somersworth". 

In 1828 the Sligo road was somewhat straightened and 
made two rods and a half wide by vote of the town, and for 
damages $110 were awarded to Samuel Hale and $26 to 
Charles Cushing, yet no change seems to have been made 
near Stacpole Landing. At a town meeting held Nov. 15, 
1830, it was voted, "that the Selectmen be authorized to sell 



i 



THE OLD FARM 69 

a small parcel of land conveyed by Stephen Stacpole to the 
town of Somersworth". This was evidently sold to Samuel 
Hale, and the straightening of the road was deferred for 
some years. June 6, 1839, a dozen persons signed a peti- 
tion to the selectmen that the Sligo road be straightened in 
the following manner, "commencing on the easterly side of 
Samuel Hales garden at a suitable point hence on as direct 
a course as convenient so as to intersect the present road 
near where the dwelling house of Stephen Stacpole formerly 
stood, through Samuel Hales land & westerly of James 
Dores house, that the present road by said Hales garden & 
by Dores house is very flat & Spongy & is more especially in 
the Spring of the year and Fall almost impassable and quite 
circuitous". Accordingly the selectmen and all interested 
met at the house of Samuel Hale, Nov. 18, 1839, and the new 
road was laid out, "Beginning at the middle gate post oppo- 
site to the house of Samuel Hale in said Somersworth thence 
running South 37 degrees West 49 rods through land of 
Samuel Hale thence South 57 degrees West 5 rods through 
land of said Samuel Hale to the old road, the above described 
line to be north westerly side of said highway and the said 
highway to be three rods wide". Samuel Hale was awarded 
$75 for damages which greatly improved his property. See 
Town Records of Somersworth, Vol. IV. pp. 218-9. 

Thus we are shown where Stephen Stacpole lived up to 
1826 and where his father, James Stacpole, lived earlier 
than 1760. There is no record to show how the house-lot 
was acquired. Two large elm trees, planted by Stephen 
Stacpole, stood in front of his house and were cut down in 
the year 1900. The old Sligo road ran east of those trees 
and down a steep decline. Traces of it can still be seen. 
The new road cut away the foundation of Stephen Stacpole's 
house and lowered the grade, as was also the case with the 
house north of the brook, occupied by James Stacpole 
in 1709. 

The house known as the Dore house was sold in 1805 by 
Joseph Prime to Dorcas, widow of Otis Stacpole. The place 
was successively owned by William Wise Stacpole, Joseph 
Doe, and Augustus Stacpole, and was sold by the last named 



70 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

to James Dore, for $200, Feb. 27, 1826. Andrew Dore, son 
of James, sold it to Samuel Hale in 1860, for $200, a quar- 
ter of an acre of land "lying between the old and new Sligo 
roads". For some years the house was occupied by Samuel 
Hale's hired man. The last person to live there was a Mr. 
Chapman. In 1898 it was in a state of dilapidation, sur- 
rounded by briars, alder bushes and a few old apple trees. 
In 1906 all traces of the house had been removed, and the 
surrounding grounds had been cleared up for field and pas- 
ture. The old cellar walls remain and the bricks of the 
chimney. A large willow tree has grown up close to the 
cellar wall. The heirs of Samuel Hale sold all the land east 
of the Sligo road to William R. Garvin before 1905. 

The northerly part of the old farm, after the death of 
Philip Stacpole in 1761, came into the possession of his son, 
Philip, who sold it to Ichabod Rollins, March 2, 1767, reserv- 
ing "5 square Rods in a Burying place on ye hill where my 
honoured fathr was buried". — N. H. Prov. Deeds, Vol. 79, p. 
459. Judge Ichabod Rollins sold the place to his son, John, 
in 1791, and John's widow, Mary Rollins, sold it to Samuel 
Hale, Nov. 1, 1821. He erected new buildings, perhaps 
retaining the old house of Philip Stacpole as the L of the 
new house. The row of elm trees along the old road was set 
by Mr. Hale. A river wall was built and where there was 
once a little cove is now a broad lawn between the road and 
the river. A large warehouse stood for many years at 
Stacpole Landing, and the town built a landing slip just 
south of the mouth of Stacpole Brook. 

Samuel Hale, born in Barrington 30 April 1793, married 
a granddaughter of Judge Ichabod Rollins, graduated at 
Bowdoin College in 1814, and studied for the ministry, but 
poor health turned him to a business career. He owned 
the mill at Quamphegan. He made the artificial pond on 
the farm and terraced the hill back of his house. He was 
the foremost citizen and had the finest place in Rollinsford. 
He died here 20 Dec. 1869. 

The heirs of Samuel Hale sold the field along the river 
to William R. Garvin, the pasture to heirs of Judge Doe, and 
the rest of the farm and buildings, about thirty acres, was 



THE OLD FARM 71 

sold at auction, Nov. 27, 1906, to Samuel Marshall, who bid 
it in for William R. Garvin, for $1517. By correspondence 
with Montgomery Rollins of Boston, who had charge of the 
property, reservation of the cemetery was made in the deed. 

In the summer of 1906 I visited several times the old 
Stacpole farm, measured some boundary lines and looked 
up the old landmarks, after examining deeds and probate 
records at Concord, Exeter and Dover, N. H. I also had 
access to two surveyors' maps of the farm. From these 
data was constructed the accompanying plan with some 
degree of accuracy. Figure 1 represents the house in which 
James Stacpole was living in 1709. Figure 2 represents the 
location of Philip Stacpole's house, 1732-67, and of the Hale 
house. Figure 3 marks the place where James Stacpole's 
house stood in 1760 and where Stephen Stacpole lived till 
1826. Figure 4 represents the house built by Jacob Lincoln 
before 1764, owned by Dorcas Stacpole and later by James 
Dore. Figure 5 may mark the spot where lived William 
Stacpole and wife Anne. 

The cemetery on the hill is the spot where rest four gen- 
erations of the Stacpole family. It is about fifty feet long 
by thirty feet wide. There are three rows of mounds and 
depressions indicating graves. The ancestors were evi- 
dently buried in the middle row, and here about a dozen 
graves are indicated. There are good reasons for believing 
that the following persons were buried here : — James Stac- 
pole and wife Margaret (Warren), Samuel Stacpole who 
died in 1758, Philip Stacpole and wife Mercy (Thompson), 
Joshua Stacpole and wives, Lucy (Baker) and Abigail 
(Hobbs), James Stacpole and wife Elizabeth (Pierce), 
Stephen Stacpole and first wife Esther (Warren), Philip 
Stacpole Jr. and wife Elizabeth (Tebbetts), and Anne 
(Gray), wife of William Stacpole. 

In 1906 the cemetery was a clump of trees and bushes. 
These were removed. A fence was put around the plot 
of ground. A monument was erected. It consists of a 
granite base three feet ten inches wide, two feet thick and 
one foot four inches high, rock-faced, with beveled top 
chiseled, laid on cement foundation; and a die of Concord

granite two feet ten inches high, three feet wide and one 
foot two inches thick, rock-faced on the sides, with curving 
top chiseled, and poHshed front and back, making the height 
of the whole four feet and two inches. The monument 
stands in the center of the cemetery. On its front is the 
following inscription : — 

JAMES STACPOLE 

1652 — 1736 

EMIGRATED BEFORE 1680. 

MARGARET (WARREN) 

HIS WIFE. 

THEIR DESCENDANTS ERECTED

On the back of the stone are inscribed the following 
names of ancestors known to have been buried here : —

AND WIFE, MERCY (THOMPSON). 

JOSHUA STACPOLE, 1713—

JAMES STACPOLE, 1714— 

AND WIFE, ELIZABETH (PIERCE). 

STEPHEN STACPOLE, 1760-1843, 
AND WIFE, ESTHER (WARREN). 

Over sixty persons assembled, Aug. 30, 1907 for the 
annual reunion and the dedication of the monument. After 
a few remarks by the president, Mrs. Annie W. Baer, prayer 
was offered and a verse of "Nearer, my God, to Thee" was 
sung. Then a historical address was read by Rev. Everett 
S. Stackpole, which was afterward published by vote of the 
Association. Then the company sang a verse of "America", 
and remarks were made by George F. Stackpole of River- 
head, N. Y.

STACKPOLE MEMORIAL 



THE OLD FARM 73 

The entire cost of the monument, including postage, trav- 
eling expenses and printing of the historical address, was 
$216.18, and one hundred contributors sent in $197.75 in 
response to a circular, varying from fifty cents to ten 
dollars. 

The substance of the historical address is embodied in 
this book, here and there; its conclusion may be worth 
preservation : — 

"In the preface to the History and Genealogy of the 
Stackpole Family I stated that the aim and wish of the 
author was to 'lead the youth who bear its name to a just 
amount of family pride and so become an incentive to broad 
education, earnest endeavor, sympathetic helpfulness, and 
noble hving'. I trust that the same motive has prompted 
all who have contributed toward the erection of this stone. 
The number of contributors and the cheerfulness of their 
giving have afforded me much pleasure, and I know that I 
express the minds of the committee when I here return 
thanks to every contributor. I find that there is a broad 
vein of liberality of thought and generosity of purse running 
through the Stackpole family. We have received much that 
is worth more than money, that our ancestors have trans- 
mitted to us. It should be our endeavor to add thereto in 
the enrichment of our souls and to leave a record behind us 
that future generations will be glad to read. I wish espe- 
cially that there might be cultivated in the entire Stackpole 
family what is known in the army as esprit du corps, a 
community of interest, a desire to be of service one to 
another, hospitality as the opportunity may be granted, 
and the hand of a friend in need. My genealogical re- 
searches and these Reunions have led me to feel an interest 
in all of the Stackpole blood as though they were of my 
own immediate family. And if there be found rarely a 
weak and erring one, let us remember the story of the 
Prodigal Son. 

We erect this modest gravestone not for show but for 
durability, and we fence about these 'five square rods where 
our honored fathers are buried', to preserve their graves 
from desecration and that the memory of them may not 



74 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

perish. The original choice of this spot for a burial place 
indicates good taste and some nobility of soul. I pity the 
mean soul that would choose a poor soil and an out-of-the- 
way corner in which to bury his dead. Such is not the way 
of love and magnanimity. I prefer the hill-top to the 
valley, the field to the pasture. The rising sun, the beauti- 
ful river, the village opposite where years were spent, the 
farm whence he took his bride, and the homes of his chil- 
dren, all seen from this spot, may have led James Stacpole, 
the emigrant, to think that this would be a nice place for a 
final rest. Does he look down upon us today in gratitude 
and benediction? It will do us no harm to cherish the 
happy thought". 

The accompanying picture shows where our ancestors 
lived. The large white house is on the site of the house 
built by Philip Stacpole soon after the year 1717. By fol- 
lowing the road down nearly to the right hand side of the 
picture one comes to the site of the first James Stacpole's 
house. Glimpses of the Newichawannock river are seen. 
The village of Great Works in South Berwick, Maine, is on 
the distant horizon.

SECOND GENERATION 

James Stacpole (James^) is made known to us by his 
will, which is here given in full, since it reveals something 
of family history. He signed his initials in the scrawling 
of a man weak with wounds or sickness. The misspelling 
of the surname is the fault of the person who wrote the 
will.

Lieut. John Stackpole (James^), for by this title he was 
usually distinguished from his son, Deacon John Stackpole, 
was probably born about or soon after 1680, since he had a 
son born in 1708. He married Elizabeth, daughter of 
Andrew and Ann (Allison) Brown^ 

^Arthur Brown, merchant and planter, came from London to Bid- 
deford, Me., in 1643. He had 500 acres at Black Point, Scarborough, 
east of Dunstan, close by what was called Harmon's Landing. His 
house was destroyed by the Indians in 1675. He is thought to have 
died in Boston in 1695. Name of his wife is unknown. His children 
were And7-ew, William, who died in Boston, 1710, leaving at least a 
son William, John, deceased in 1696, leaving at least sons John and 
Samuel, Joseph according to Folsom's Hist, of Biddeford, Joshua 
who m. Rebecca Libby, and Elizabeth who m. Matthew Libby. 

Andrew Brown (Arthuri) born 1658, married (1) Ann, daughter 
of Ralph Allison of Scarborough, Me. See York Deeds, XVII. 113. 
He married (2) 24 Jan. 1709/10, Sarah Priest in Wells, Me. She 
was daughter of Roger Hill and married (1) Pendleton Fletcher, and 
(2) William Priest. Andrew Brown died 4 July 1725, aged 66, as 
his tombstone in the cemetery near the old Congregational church in 
Scarborough declares. He is called Lieutenant in the town records. 
He lived in a garrison house in York 1697-1713, on the northeast side 
of York River, and here probably John Stackpole became acquainted 
with his daughter. The children of Andrew and Ann (Allison) 
Brown were Andrew who died 14 March 1722, aged 31, leaving a 
daughter, Lieut. Alliso7i who died 16 April 1728, aged 31 (he m. Han- 



SECOND GENERATION 77 

John Stackpole, for so his name is always spelled, lived 
in York a dozen years, receiving three grants of land there. 
He moved to Biddeford, Maine, about 1717 and bought sev- 
eral parcels of land near Cov^ Cove and the mouth of the 
Saco river, having at one time over two hundred acres of 
land. Jan. 4, 1728, he and others had a grant from Arundel 
of one hundred acres apiece on the Saco Road, a new road 
to be laid out from Wells through Arundel to Winter Har- 
bor in Biddeford. This has led historians to say erron- 
eously that John Stackpole moved to Kennebunkport, as 
Arundel was called later. There is much evidence to the 
contrary. 

John Stackpole was chosen constable of Biddeford in 
1717. The last meeting of the inhabitants on both sides of 
the river under the old name of Saco was held at his house, 
31 March 1717, and he was chosen Moderator. His house 
stood on the spot where not long ago lived Ralph E. Jordan, 
Esq., on the Pool Road, near an old cemetery. His house 
was a garrison for defense against the Indians. A petition 
to the General Court, dated 9 Nov. 1723, is signed by Eben- 
ezer Hill, John Stackpole and Nathaniel Tarbox. They ask 
for protection against the Indians and say that Stackpole's 
"Garrison is upon the road and is a guard and security to 
the meeting house." 

In 1727 he petitioned the General Court for an allow- 
ance for services in taking "command of Twenty-one men at 
Biddeford and marching up Saco river in pursuit of the 
enemy, which continued for nine days, and soon after his 
return, on the first day of february following (1724/5) your 
petitioner did by order of Colonel Westbrook march as Pilot 
from Richmond to Penobscot Town with Capt. James 
Heath." It was ordered that eight pounds be paid him out 
of the public treasury. On this expedition with Capt. 
Heath a village of the Tarratines, containing fifty houses, 

nah Scammon and had children, Andrew and Elizabeth. In his \vill 
he bequeathed to his sister, Elizabeth Stackpole and to each of her 
children four pounds apiece), Lieut. Matthew, d. s. p. before 1731, 
Catherine who married Joshua Lassell, Elizabeth who married John 
Stackpole, and Mary who married Samuel Carr. The account of this 
family as given in the first edition of this book contains some errors. 



78 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

near the present city of Bangor, was burned. The Tarra- 
tines had fled. 

The reason why John Stackpole did not receive his pay 
sooner appears in the fact that while he was a soldier in the 
fort at Winter Harbor he was captured by Indians, carried 
to Canada and there remained nineteen months, after which 
he was exchanged for an Indian that had been taken. The 
General Court of Massachusetts allowed him £22 for dam- 
ages suffered, f'olsom says that John Stackpole "ran into 
the pool and attempted to wade across ; but one of the party, 
said to have been the noted Wahwa, who was well known to 
Stackpole, pursued him, crying out, "Boon quarter, John, 
boon quarter", meaning that he would spare his life". John 
surrendered and went to Canada, spending a winter on his 
way at the foot of the White Mountains. Some anecdotes 
concerning his captivity have floated dov/n on the stream 
of tradition, not altogether reliable.^ 

In 1730 John Stackpole was chosen messenger to hire a 
schoolmaster. He contributed seven pounds toward the 
building of the first Ccngregational church in Biddeford and 
was one of the committee that called the Rev. Samuel 
Willard to be its pastor in 1729. He was one of the select- 
men in 1729, 1730, 1737-9, and 1740. He was living in 1767. 
His wife signed a deed in 1759. Their children, so far as 
known, were : — 

10. John b. 1708 ; m. Bethiah Young. 

11. Andrew m. Mary Davis. 

12. Sarah m. 1730, John Smith. 
Ehzabeth ? m. Edward Smith.

Catherine Stacpole (James^) married Alexander Junkins 
of Scotland Parish, York, Maine. His father was Robert 
Junkins, taken prisoner by Oliver Cromwell at the battle of 
Dunbar, 3 Sept. 1650, and sent to Boston in the ship Unity. 
He married Sarah, daughter of John Smith of York. Cath- 
erine Junkins died between 9 Nov. 1757 and 13 Feb. 1758.

Philip Stacpole (James^ is first mentioned in the will 
of his brother James, in 1706. It is conjectured that he was 
born about the year 1690. It appears by a court record in 
York county, Maine, that he married (1) Mercy Thomson, 
about the year 1712. After studying thoroughly all the 
Thomson and Thompson families in old Kittery and Dover it 
seems more probable than any other supposition, that she 
was an unrecorded daughter of John and Sarah (Emery) 
Thomson. John Thomson's widow married Gilbert Warren, 
uncle of Philip Stacpole. Thus he would be brought into 
intimate relations with that family. They must have lived 
in upper Kittery, (South Berwick) at the time of their 
marriage. 

He married (2), between 1750 and 1755, Martha, widow 
of Thomas Stevens of Somers worth, N. H. It has hereto- 
fore been published by me and by others that he married 

^Rowland Young, fisherman, of York, declared in 1686 that he 
had lived in York fifty years, that is, since 1636. He married Joane, 
daughter of Robert Knight. After deeding property to sons he willed 
the remainder to wife Joanne in 1685. In 1698 she willed property 
to children Rowland, Job, Mary Moulton and Lydia Haines. Their 
children were probably Richard, whose estate was administered in 
1672 and who left widow Margery, whose maiden name was Mar- 
gery Batson and who m. (2) Hon. Robert Eliot; William, who had a 
grant of land in 1684, is called son of Rowland, removed to Salem, 
Mass., and had at least son William; Robert m. Mary Say ward; 
Samuel; Job m. Sarah Austin; Rowland m. Susanna Matthews; Mary 

m. Moulton; and Lydia who m. Thomas Haines of Amesbury, 

Mass. 

The above named Rowland Young, Jr., was a deacon in the church 
at York. He died 28 June 1721, aged 72 years. He married Su- 
sanna, daughter of Walter and Mary Matthews, who deposed 30 June 
1698, aged 46 years. See Hist, of Durham, N. H. They had nine 
children, of whom was Jonathan, who married Margaret Stacpole. 

Rowland Young, Jr., had another son, Lieut. Joseph Young, who 
married Abigail, daughter of Joseph and Ruth (Redding) Donnell of 
York. Their daughter, Bethiah, b. Sept. 1709, married Deacon John 
Stackpole of Biddeford. 



SECOND GENERATION 81 

Martha (Downes) Mackelroy. Samuel Downes in his will, 
March 24-May 30, 1755, gave "to Sister Martha Stacpole 
the wife of Philip Stacpole the use & improvement of Ten 
acres of Land at the South West Corner of my homestead 
Near as the fence now Stands During her Natural Life & 
after her Decease I Give the Said Ten acres of Land to all 
her Natural Children to be equally Divided Between them 
their heirs & assigns forever".** He also willed property to 
his wife Judith and to the Church of Christ in Somersworth 
one hundred pounds. It is certain from other evidences that 
Martha Downes married (1) James Bunker, (2) John 
Mackelroy. The inference is easy, that Philip Stacpole 
married (2) the widow of John Mackelroy. 

But Schoolmaster Tate in his Journal says that "John 
McKleroy of Somersworth dyd on Sunday Feb'y 16th 1772. 
Mrs. Martha McKleroy widow of ye abovesd Jno McKleroy 
dyd". The date is not given. Note also the following 
deeds, — 

Oct. 20, 1762. Samuel and Abigail Stevens of Lebanon, York 
County, conveyed to Stephen Evans three and three quarters acres 
in Somersworth, part of the land willed me by Samuel Downs and 
part I bought of my brother, Abijah Stevens, and sister Mary Grant, 
wife of William, where my mother, Martha Stagpole, lives. (Records 
at Exeter, N. H., Vol. 105, p. 168.) 

April 16, 1765. Joshua Nock of Berwick and wife Elizabeth, and 
widow Hannah Gerrish conveyed to Stephen Evans of Somersworth 
ten acres in Somersworth, which formerly belonged to Samuel Downs, 
which he gave in his will to our honored mother then by ye name of 
Stevens and now by the name of Martha Stagpole, and to her heirs, 
widow of Philip Stagpole, late of Somersworth deceased. (N. H. 
Province Deeds, Vol. 96, p. 8.) 

Thus it is plain, in spite of an inaccuracy in the last 
deed, that Philip Stacpole married (2) Martha, widow of 
Thomas Stevens. Perhaps she was sister to Judith, wife of 
Samuel Downes, and that the word sister in his will means

82 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

sister-in-law. A Mrs. Stackpole, doubtless widow of Philip, 
died in Dover, 24 Sept. 1792, aged 101 years.^ 

In the records of the church at South Berwick appears 
the folowing entry, March 15, 1729, "Mercy Stackpole 
(Philip) received by profession". In the church at Dover 
were baptized, Jan. 18, 1730, "Philip Stagpole and children 
Sarah, William, Lydia and Elisha". Their other children, 
Joshua and James, were baptized at South Berwick. 

Philip Stacpole was living in 1717 in a house built on 
land of the Tebbetts heirs, a few rods north of his father's 
farm and east of the road. In 1732 his father deeded to 
him the northerly part of his farm. He was a member of 
the first School Board of Somersworth. He was one of the 
selectmen of the parish, with Paul Wentworth and William 
Wentworth, in 1737, 1741 and 1742. He was chosen to the 
same office in 1748 but refused to serve. Again he was 
elected selectman in 1750 with Col. Thomas Wallingford and 
Capt. James Hobbs. He was one of a committee on valua- 
tion of estates in 1753, and one of the overseers of the poor 
in 1754, 1755 and 1758. He was collector of taxes in 1753. 
He was sergeant in the militia in 1746. These offices prove 
that he was considered a man of ability and integrity. In 
the division of common land in Dover in 1733 Philip Stac- 
pole received three hundred and twenty-eight acres. 

His will, 25 Aug.-30 Sept. 1761, is as follows :—

Honor Stacpole (James^) was baptized and received by 
covenant in the church at South Berwick, 20 May 1716. 
The following account of her is given for the benefit of per- 
plexed genealogists. 

In July 1721, James Stacpole had a suit in the court of 
New Hampshire against Joshua, son of Hatevil Roberts, 
who lived at "Sligo", in Somersworth. He charged that 
said Roberts often came to his house and kept company with 
his daughter Honor, who is now with child by him. Joshua 
Roberts denied the fact and refused to marry her. See 
Court Files at Concord, N. H. The child was named for his 
father, Joshua Roberts, and was brought up in the family 
of James^ Stacpole, till his mother married and took him 
with her to York. Dr. Ham of Dover, N. H., left a rec- 
ord of marriages, in which he says that Hatevil Roberts 



SECOND GENERATION 85 

married Honor Stacpole 28 Oct. 1724 and that James 
Freathy married Honor Stacpole 24 Jan. 1733. Both state- 
ments are erroneous. 

Joshua Roberts, son of Joshua and Honor (Stacpole) 
Roberts, married Ruth Smith of South Berwick. Both died 
at the home of their son, the Rev. Joshua Roberts in Kenne- 
bunk, Me., after 1803. Their children, recorded in Ber- 
wick, were: 

James Roberts b. 31 May 1745 ; m. Martha Woodsum, 9 
July 1767.

of York, Me. His first wife was Jemima, daughter of Sam- ,.;/xjUm:>, 

uel Hatch of Wells, Me., by whom he had five children. The 
name Freathy has become extinct, though descendants of 
other surname are found. The children of Joseph and

Samuel Stacpole (James^) is not mentioned in his 
brother's will, 1706. Perhaps he was born later. He was 
baptized and received by covenant in the church at South 
Berwick, Me., 15 Oct. 1721. He died intestate in 1758. As 
his property was divided among his brothers and sisters, it 
is evident that he left no family. Philip, his brother, was 
made administrator of his estate 22 Feb. 1758. James 
Hobbs and Daniel Goodwin made the inventory of his estate, 
consisting of thirty acres of land, buildings, a yoke of cat- 
tle, a cow, a heifer and household stuff, — all amounting to 
£2681 :s7, doubtless in depreciated currency. In 1723, in a 
deposition, Samuel Stacpole, "of lawful age", mentions "my 
landing". In a suit against him, in 1725, one item charged 
to him was a pair of gloves, worth five shillings, for his 
sister. Honor.

THIRD GENERATION

Deacon John Stackpole (Lieut. John-, JamesO was born 
in 1708, and married, 30 Nov. 1731, Bethiah Young of York. 
See page 80. He was deacon in the Congregational church 
at Biddeford in 1754, selectman in 1746, 1750 and 1751. 
He, too, was a lieutenant in the militia, appointed by Gov. 
William Shirley in 1755, "for killing and captivating the 
Indian enemy", as the commission, still preserved, reads. 
He had, in 1755, command of soldiers enlisted for five 
months, who scouted from New Boston (Gray) to Fort 
Shirley at Frankfort (Dresden), Maine. His journal, kept 
during that time, is preserved in the archives of Massachu- 
setts. The record recounts the daily doings of the month of 
July, in marching to North Yarmouth, New Gloucester, 
Brunswick, Cathance (Bowdoinham), Richmond, Fort Wes- 
tern at Augusta and Fort Halifax at Win slow, Maine. 

Deacon John Stackpole died at Biddeford, Me., 2 Dec. 
1796 in the eighty-ninth year of his age. His wife died 28 
June 1785, aged 76 years. They had eight children : 

19. James b. 14 Nov. 1732; m. Abiel Hill.

Sarah Stackpole (Lieut. John-, James^ married, 1730, 
Capt. John Smith (Nicholas^ Nicholas- of Exeter, N. H., 
Richard^ of Ipswich, Mass.) who came to Biddeford from 
Exeter with brothers, Capt. Daniel Smith and Edward 
Smith. Capt. John Smith settled in that part of Hollis, Me., 
which is now Dayton. Children, so far as known : 

I 

John Smith, Jr., m. a cousin, Anna, dau. of Capt. Daniel 
Smith. Their descendant, Isaac Murch of Dayton, tells the 
tradition that James Stacpole was captured on the coast of 
Ireland, when he was 14 years of age, and brought to 
America. 

Allison Smith m. his cousin, EHzabeth Junkins, 11 Feb. 
1762. 

Nicholas Smith, "father of Col. John Smith of Hollis and 
the grandfather of Gen. Charles Smith". 

Jedediah Smith bapt. at Biddeford 12 Nov. 1749. Had 
a family in Hollis. 

Some think that Edward Smith, brother of Capt. John 
Smith, married Elizabeth Stackpole, sister of his brother's 
wife. He married (2), 1758, Abigail Murch. Children by 
first marriage were Edward, Andrew, Daniel, Mary, Sarah, 
Ann, and Margaret. 



THIRD GENERATION 89 

Joshua Stacpole (Philip-, James') was born on the old 
Stacpole farm in what is now Rollinsford, N. H., in 1713. 
He was baptized and received on confession of faith in the 
church at South Berwick, Me., 15 March 1729. The name 
of his first wife is unknown. One child by that marriage. 
About 1739 he married (2) Lucy Baker. See page 62. His 
third wife was Abigail Hobbs. He was a blacksmith. He 
was one of the troopers under command of Capt. Tristram 
Coflfin in Dover, 27 July 1740. Constable in 1743. He with 
eighty others was granted a charter of Middleton, N. H., 27 
April 1749. He had for three pounds the privilege of build- 
ing a pew in the gallery of the church at Somersworth in 
1754. Schoolmaster Tate says that Joshua Stacpole broke 
his thigh 11 Jan. 1776. At one time five of his sons were 
masters of vessels. His children are here given in the order 
in which they are recorded, without dates, in Tate's Journal. 
His widow, Abigail, was living in 1795. 

Mary bapt. 31 May 1736; probably died young. 
Children by second marriage 
23. Samuel b. Oct. 1740 ; m. Zerviah Watson. 

Lucy m. William Watson, (2) Gershom Horn. See 
N. E. Reg, 1851. 

Henry Hobbs first appears in the tax-list of Dover, N. H., in 1657 
as "henrey hobes". In 1658 he had a grant of four acres on Dover 
Neck. He married Hannah, daughter of Thomas Canney and received 
as a marriage poi'tion six score acres next south of James Stacpole's 
lot. There is some evidence that he was a Scotchman. He died in 
1698, leaving widow Hannah and son Henry. Henry Hobbs, Jr., was 
born in 1670, had wife Mary who administered his estate in 1724. 
Thomas Hobbs, probably their son, lived on the top of the hill, west 
of the Sligo road, where his cellar may now be plainly seen. He sold 
his place to Thomas Wallingford in 1738 and was living in Berwick 
in 1755. His wife was Elizabeth Morrell of Kittery. No connection 
has been traced between that family and the following. 

There was a James Hobbs, son of Morris and Joanna (Cromwell), 
with wife Rebecca (Garland?), who was probably connected with the 
Hobbs family of Hampton, N. H. He had ten children and died in 
1767. Children were Mercy b. 7 Dec. 1719, not named in her father's 
will; Phebe b. 10 Sept. 1722; Abigail b. 30 March 1725 m. Joshua

James Stacpole (Philip", James^) was born in 1714. He 
was baptized at South Berwick, Me., 15 March 1729, as son 
of Philip and Mercy. His mother was received into the 
church the same day. He enlisted in a company commanded 
by Capt. Job Clement, 7 April 1748, as a guard to Roches- 
ter and Barrington, N. H. His age was then 34. Accord- 
ing to Tate he married, about 1740, Elizabeth, daughter of 
Benjamin and Hannah (Ash) Pierce, who was born 17 May 

John Pierce, weaver, from Norwich, England, born 1588, was ad- 
mitted as a freeman in Watertown Mass., March 1638, "a man of 
very good estate". He died 19 Aug. 1661. His wife, Elizabeth died 
12 March 1667/8. His eldest son, Anthony, was born in England in 
1609 and was a freeman in Watertown, 3 Sept. 1634, where he died 9 
May 1678. His first wife, Sarah, died in 1633. He married in 1638 

Anne . He had nine children, of whom Joseph was born probably 

in 1647. He married (1) Martha , (2) 15 June 1698, Mrs. Eliza-

THIRD GENERATION 91 

1717 and baptized 20 Nov. 1717. James Stacpole does not 
figure at all in the town records of Somersworth. He is 
called "laborer" in a legal document of 1759. He was then 
summoned to court to show reason why he had not 
responded to the call of his military company to go on the 
expedition to Canada. He had just passed the age of forty- 
five. In 1750 he, his brother Philip and his brother-in-law, 
Israel Pierce, were accused at court by Col. Thomas Wall- 
ingford of saying bad words against the King and his New 
Hampshire officials. James Stacpole seems to have been the 
principal offender and was charged with "damning his Maj- 
esty King George III". This was the first year of King 
George's reign, and though we can not approve of James' 
language, he might have wasted it on a less provoking sub- 
ject. He evidently had in advance the spirit of '76. He 
paid fine and costs amounting to £16-4-6, or over $80, which 
was a wicked fine to impose upon a laborer with eight chil- 
dren to support. The record shows that most of this sum 
went to lawyers and officials. In 1781 James Stacpole with 
many others received a "drawback", or abatement of taxes, 
£1 s8. He and wife were probably living in the family of 
his son Stephen, when the census of 1790 was taken. Their 
house stood just south of Stackpole Brook, where the pres- 
ent road runs. The dates of birth of his eight children are 

Thomas b. 15 May 1727 m. Hannah, daughter of James Heard. — See 
Bond's History of Watertown, Dover Historical Collections, Tate's 
Journal, Pierce Genealogy and records of N. H. 

Thomas Ash witnessed a deed in Boston, 2 (12) 1652. Thomas 
Ash signed a petition in Dover, N. H., in 1689. He lived at Oyster 
River, near the head of Johnson's Creek. He married Hannah, daugh- 
ter of Philip and Elizabeth Chesley, (2) widow Mary Rawlins, or 
Rollins. His will, 1718, names wife Mary, son Thomas, daughter Han- 
nah Pierce, to whom he gave five shillings, and "other daughters". 
His son Thomas had wife Eleanor. She and children, Mary, Thomas, 
Judith and Benjamin, were baptized in Dover, 28 March 1736. Widow 
Mary Ash and Judith, her daughter, were baptized 28 Sept. 1718. In 
1743 Thomas Ash and Eleanor his wife sold to John Gage 25 acres 
with house, orchard, etc., on the road from Dover to Cochecho Point. 
Eleanor Ash married in Somersworth William Whitehouse, Jr., about 
1763 and had several children. Benjamin Ash signed a petition 
from Lebanon, Me., in 1757. This is all that I have been able to learn 
about the Ash family. See Hist, of Durham, N. H., N. H. State Pa- 
pers, Rawlins Genealogy p. 306, and Dover Hist. Collections.

and George. Capt. Samuel Frost was five times selectman 
in Somersworth between 1786 and 1794. He married, 13 
July 1772, Esther Warren. In 1795 administration of his 
estate was granted to his widow, Esther. See Old Kittery 
and Her Families, pp. 431-2.

THIRD GENERATION 93 

17 

William Stacpole (Philip-, James^ married Anne Grey, 
who died 31 Oct. 1794, aged 77 years. She was probably 
daughter of Alexander and Elizabeth (Harlow) Grey of 
South Berwick, Me. He lived on the hill-top, on the south- 
ern part of the Stacpole farm, where traces of a house 
and well may be seen. He died of smallpox while on a sea 
voyage, about 1798. There is no record of any children. 
Anecdotes about "Will" and "Ann" have floated down. The 
following depositions reflect the customs of the neighbor- 
hood. 

I William Stacpole of Somersworth — of lawful age Do testify & 
Declare that on the sixth day of June A. D. 1773 I went to see Mr. 
Mark Wallingford who made some Toddy & asked me to drink & per- 
ceiving I did not like it he told me he knew the reason; it was not 
strong enough. I said it was not. He answered I like it as it is. 
There is more rum, alter it as you please. He told me sundry times 
before he intended to make his will & wou'd not give that west-coun- 
try-man (meaning I suppose Capt. William Pearne) a farthing of 
his estate 

Somersworth April 16 1774 William Stacpole." 

"I Anne Stackpole of Somersworth in the county of Strafford & 
province of New Hampshire (the wife of William Stacpole) of law- 
ful age Do testify & declare that Mark Wallingford deceased some 
time before his death came to our house and among other conversa- 
tion told me (as he did sundry other times) that he never intended 
to give Captain Pearne a Copper of his estate, for he intended shortly 
to make his will, and during his last sickness as I was going to make 
the said Mark a visit I met Josiah Tibbetts, who told me Mr. Mark 
Wallingford had made his will and that he was a witness to it. I

beth Tebbetts. He was corporal in Capt. John Wentworth's 
company in the expedition against Canada. He was sur- 
veyor of lumber in 1759, Juryman in 1767, Tythingman in 
1768 and the same year collector of taxes. In 1795 we find 
the following entries in the books of the Town Treasurer, 
"Paid Abigail Stacpole for boarding Philip Stacpole 6.67", 
"Paid Francis Roberts for coffin for Philip Stacpole $2". In 
1796 there appears to the credit of the town, "By the 
amount of inventory of estate of Philip Stacpole £4-15-3". 
In 1797 the town paid evidently arrears as follows: "Paid 
John Rollins for keeping Philip Stacpole, $6", "Paid Mau- 
rice Hobbs for keeping Philip Stacpole, $10", "Paid Mary 
Hall for keeping Philip Stacpole, $1.67". The following 
deposition may be of interest : 

"I Philip Stacpole of Somersworth husbandman, of lawful 

age do Testify & Declare that one morning while the people were to 
work on Somersworth Meeting house I took a walk there and met 
with Mr. Mark Wallingford deceased who asked me to go to his 
brother Thomas's & drink a Dram, that while we were walking there 
the said Mark told me he intended to make his will. I asked him why- 
he did not & told him that it would not shorten his days. He re- 
peated his intention to do it sundry times. I then asked him whom 
he intended to give his estate to. He answered, I intend to give it 
to our Thomas, Eben & Bett Wentworth and that a little time after 
Mr. Samuel Lord was drowned he told me he intended to give his 
widow something as she was left in such circumstances. 

Philip Stacpole.

to that part of Winslow which is now Waterville, Me., 9 
March 1784, as his diary shows. Here his business was 
that of a general trader. He kept a diary and was careful 
in his eighty-ninth year to write a genealogical record of 
his family. The births of all his children are registered in 
Biddeford and Winslow. He was commissioned Captain 
by Gov. John Hancock, 25 Oct. 1787, and his resignation

Joseph Young Stackpole (John\ John^ JamesO was 
born in Biddeford, Me., 28 Aug. 1747. He married, 12 
May 1773, Anna, oldest daughter of Brian and Anna 
(Young) Fletcher. She was born 25 Jan. 1750, baptized 
in Biddeford 8 Aug. 1750 and died in Augusta, Me., 2 Jan. 
1836. He died in Augusta 26 Feb. 1823.* Eight children. 

Joseph Young Stackpole was in early life a sailor. He 
seems to have been with his brother James in Gardiner, 
Me., in 1775, for on the 25th of July of that year he enlisted 
as a private from "Gardner's Town" in Capt. Oliver Col- 
burn's Company, Col. Arnold's Regiment. He served 
twenty days, being discharged 14 Aug. 1775. Later in life 
he was offered a pension if he would take a poor man's oath, 
but this he could not do. He moved to Augusta, Me., about 
1784, since he was taxed that year for fifty acres of land, 
two oxen and a cow. He lived on the east side of the Ken- 

*His wife was small, of very light complexion, with blue eyes and 
black hair. She was descended from the Rev. Seth Fletcher, who was 
minister at Wells as early as 1655. He may have been son of William 
Fletcher, who was buried at Biddeford in 1668, or some think of Rob- 
ert Fletcher of Concord, Mass., who died 3 April 1677, aged 85. Rev. 
Seth Fletcher preached at old Saco about 1675, whence he went to 
Elizabethtown, New Jersey, and died there, August 1681. He mar- 
ried before 1655 Mary, daughter of Brian and Eleanor Pendleton. 
See Brian Pendleton and His Descendants, pp. 28-9. 

The only son of Rev. Seth and Mary (Pendleton) Fletcher was 
Pendleton Fletcher, who was adopted by his grandfather, Brian Pen- 
dleton. He lived on what was called Pendleton's Neck, afterward 
Fletcher's Neck. He married Sarah, daughter of Roger and Sarah 
(Cross) Hill. She married (2) William Priest, (3) Andrew Brown. 
Pendleton Fletcher had several children, one of whom was Pendleton, 
Jr., who is said to have been captured by Indians four times. His 
father had died in Canadian captivity in 1698. Pendleton Fletcher, 
Jr., was a prominent citizen of Biddeford, serving as selectman and 
deputy to the General Court. His wife's name was Hannah. In 
1746 he conveyed his property to sons, John, Joseph, Brian, Pendleton, 
Seth and Samuel. Brian Fletcher married, 4 April 1749, Anna Young 
of Biddeford and moved to Augusta, Me., in 1780. He had children, 
Brian, Robert, Anna, David, Mary and Eunice.

farm owned recently by William Hunt. Although he was 
the shortest of four brothers, tradition says that he meas- 
ured six feet and four inches in height, the tallest, John, 
being six feet seven inches. He was very muscular and a 
story is told of his holding out a neighbor at arm's length 
clear of the floor and whipping him with an ox-goad for 
wife-beating. His neighbors used to call him "Mighty- 
pole". He was a polite man, strict in family government, 
and a constant attendant at church, whither he used to ride 
three miles on horseback with his wife on the pillion. Be-

James Stacpole (James', Philip-, James') was born in 
what is now Rollinsford, N. H., 1 May 1744, 0. S. With his 
brother William he went to Harpswell, Me., and for several 
years they were residents of the island called Sebascodegan, 
now known as Great Island. A petition, dated 25 May 1768, 
was sent to the General Court of Massachusetts by inhabit- 
ants of an island called in the petition an "island alias Shap- 
leigh Island", asking "to be erected into a distinct separate 
precinct, that we may enjoy the privileges of the Gospel, in 
common with other Christians, in a more decent and con- 
venient manner".^ It is signed by James Stackpole and by 
William Stackpole. April 16, 1763, Joseph Thompson and 
Sarah his wife gave a deed of 18 acres, for twenty-six 
pounds fifteen shillings, to James Stacpole of Great Sebas- 
codegan Island, "said land being a moyety of lot No. 15 in 
the first division and being a part of the real estate of my 
late honored father and falling to my share as set off to me 
by men chosen by the Judge of Probate". The land bor- 
dered on New Meadows river, Brunswick, Me. April 16 
1773, James and Judith Stacpole sold thirty-seven acres, 
this and other lots, to Isaac Snow-. About this time James 
Stacpole removed to Thomaston, Me., where he purchased 
a farm of James Fales and "settled along the Bay of 
George's River towards Simonton Point".^ 

James Stacpole was a carpenter and mason as well as 
farmer. He married (1), 18 May 1767, Judith, daughter of 
Joseph and Mary (Hinckley) Thompson of Brunswick, Me., 
who was born 8 Feb. 1743 and died at Thomaston 13 April

William Stacpole (James•^ Philip-, JamesO was born 19 
Oct. 1746 in what is now Rollinsford, N. H. He went with 
his brother James to Sebascodegan, or Great Island, Harps- 
well, Me., thence to Thomaston, Me., about 1773. May 23, 
1771, Ebenezer Toothaker of Harpswell sold to William 
Stackpole for eighty pounds land on Sebascodegan Island, 
lot number 2 in first division, on New Meadows river. Oct. 
2, 1780 he sold this land to Joshua Purington for one hun- 
dred and twenty pounds. The deed is dated at Boston, 
Mass., and is signed by William and Ann Stackpole, wit- 
nessed by Samuel Cooper and Samuel L. Parker, After 
going to Thomaston James and William being carpenters 
got out the frame of a house, and William went with it to 
Boston and remained there. He was a resident of ward 9, 
Boston, Dec. 19, 1776, for his name then appears in the 



FOURTH GENERATION 109 

public records among the men from whom a draft was made 
for reenforcement of the Continantal Army. The same rec- 
ords show that he was a retailer on King Street, now State 
Street, 28 Aug. 1781. He lived in what was long known as 
the "Stackpole House", and was a wealthy wholesale wine- 
merchant. This house was built in 1729 and was occupied 
many years before it took its name by the Waldos, Tyngs 
and Apthorps. It was midway between Milk and Water 
Streets, a large brick house with ample door-yard and gar- 
den in front. "For many years after the Stackpole House 
ceased to be a genteel private residence it was used as a 
fashionable restaurant, where the gay and lively Bostonians 
found good cooking, and where they used to assemble and 
unbend in festive cheer." After the death of Mr. Stackpole 
it was occupied by his son-in-law, Mr. Welch, whose son, 
Charles A. Welch, Esq., sold the property to the United 
States Government. The present Boston Post Office stands 
on the site of the Stackpole House. 

William Stackpole married Mrs. Ann (Jackson) Parker 
of Boston 3 Oct. 1776. Married by the Rev. Samuel Still- 
man. She was daughter of Thomas Jackson, born probably 
3 April 1744. He died 3 Dec. 1813 of "gout in stomach". 
His wife died 18 May 1807, aged 63. They were buried in 
the Jackson tomb, in the Granary, just at the north side of 
Park Street church, whence their remains were removed to 
Mount Auburn cemetery many years afterward.

John Stacpole (James^ Philip-, JamesO was born in 
Somersworth, now Rollinsford, N. H., 4 Aug. 1749. He 
went to Harpswell, Me., when a young man and worked at 



110 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

his trade as a tailor. He married, 4 July 1775, Elizabeth, 
daughter of Capt. David and Mary (Todd) Dunning* of 
Brunswick, Me. She was born 9 Sept. 1751. Her father 
was opposed to the marriage; so they mounted horses and 
rode to her cousin's, Dea. Andrew Dunning of Harpswell, 
and were married in his house, still standing, by the Rev. 
Samuel Eaton. John Stacpole built a house at High Head, 
in Harpswell, not far east of the old academy. The house 
was about twenty feet square. A staircase led to an unfin- 
ished attic. The house stood close to the water, a little 
south of a large oak tree. It was in a dilapidated condition 
about the year 1900 ; it disappeared before 1909. The well 
west of the house still may be seen. 

John Stacpole enlisted 23 Sept. 1779 in Capt. George 
Roger's Co., Col. Nathaniel Jordan's regiment and served 
at Falmouth, now Portland, Me. He was discharged 23 
Oct. 1779. 

May 6, 1783, David Dunning gave a deed of seventy-five 
acres of land to his daughter, Elizabeth Stacpole. The land 
was in the northern part of Durham, Me., then called Roy- 
alsborough, lot 91. Oct. 1, 1791, John and Elizabeth Stac- 
pole (sic) sold for fifteen pounds to Benjamin Dunning, 

^Andrew Dunning, who had married Susan Bond, came with the 
Scotch-Irish emigrants from North Ireland in 1718, bringing wife 
and five sons. He settled near "Maquoit" in Brunswick the same 
year. He was a farmer and blacksmith, dying 18 Jan. 1736. His 
gravestone is the oldest in Brunswick, showing that he was born in 
1664. The Dunning name stretches back for centuries earlier in 
Scotland. It is an old Anglo-Saxon clan name. He had no connec- 
tion with John Dunning, Lord Ashburton, as some have supposed. 
There is a town named Dunning in the northern part of Scotland. 
Andrerw Dunning's wife perished in the burning of her house, in 1737. 

Their son, David Dunning, born in 1706, owned a large part of 
the land where the village of Brunswick, Me., now is. He built a 
block-house for defence against the Indians, on the northwest corner 
of Main and Pleasant Streets. He was deacon in the Congregational 
church, Brunswick's first representative to the General Court of 
Mass., and on the first board of selectmen. He was captain in the 
militia and one of the six proprietors of Royalsborough, now Durham, 
Me. He died 16 Aug. 1793 and is buried, with his father, in the old 
cemetery a mile south of Bowdoin College. He married, in Boston, 3 
Dec. 1735, Mary Todd, probably daughter of John and Rachel (Nel- 
son) Todd. She died 16 Aug. 1784, aged 74 years. He married (2) 
Mrs. Mary (Lithgow) Hunter, when both were over eighty years of 
age. — Hist, of Durham, Me., pp. 11-13, and especially N. E. Hist. Gen.

Jr., "land with a house thereon" in Harpswell, on Merri- 
coneag River, at northeast corner of land belonging to said 
Dunning, two and one quarter rods on the river front and 
sixty rods deep. At this time they moved to Durham. On 
a hilltop he built a framed house, facing the river Andro- 
scoggin, having four large square rooms below. This was 
burned in 1836. There was no road to his dwelling except a 
path from the river. In 1793 he and several others were 
warned out of town by the selectmen. He staid, however, 
and never was a burden to the town. In 1795 he was road 
surveyor and one of the school agents. He died 26 June 
1829. 

Elizabeth (Dunning) Stacpole was a woman, as all ac- 
counts testify, of lovely Christian character, very gentle and 
ladylike in disposition and manners, frugal from necessity, 
hospitable from choice. She died 29 Feb. 1836. Nine chil-

Grace Hanfield Stackpole (William*, James% Philips 
JamesO was born in Boston in 1782 and married in the sum- 
mer of 1800, John Ward Gurley. Rev. Increase N. Tarbox, 
D.D., Sept. 6, 1872, read before the N. E. Historic Genea- 
logical Society a paper entitled "Reminiscences of the 
Stackpole House". It was published in the New Englander 
for Oct. 1873, Vol. XXXII. He says without mentioning 
names that John Ward Gurley was oldest son of Rev. John 
Gurley, D.D., of Eastern, Conn. He entered Yale College 
in 1794, neglected his studies, was dismissed from college at 
the request of his father, but so diligently pursued the study 
of law at Boston that Yale gave him the honorary degree of 
Master of Arts in 1799, earlier than he could have obtained 
it, if he had finished his course at Yale. "It happened one 
night in those years between 1796 and 1799 a fire was rag- 



138 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

ing somewhere in the vicinity of the Stackpole House, and 
the fine looking student by a kind of accident turned out of 
the crowd and took the steps of the old mansion as a good 
place to see the fire. A pair of eyes happened to be looking 
out of the window, that had seen him before. The door was 
opened and the student was politely invited to walk in and 
look from the window, where he could see the fire to still 
better advantage. This was the real beginning of an 
acquaintance that ripened into marriage." He became an 
eminent lawyer. His life was sadly ended in a duel at New 
Orleans, 5 March 1808, while he was attorney-general of 
Louisiana. His wife died of fever in New Orleans in 1804. 
They had one child.

Samuel Owen Stackpole (John*, James% Philip-, JamesO 
was born in Durham, Me., 19 Dec. 1794. He received the 
homestead from his father, giving bond of $1500, dated 7 
March 1816, for the maintenance during life of his parents 
and sister Jane, and for the payment of certain sums to 
other relatives. The bond obliged him to provide for his 
parents "Conveyance to Meeting and for visiting their 
friends in such manner as has been customary with them". 
This bond he gave when he was twenty-two years of age, 
and he faithfully fulfilled it. He added to the original home- 
stead by purchase from time to time till he owned one hun- 
dred and eighty acres. He engaged to some extent in lum- 
bering, built a saw-mill just back of his house, which long 
since disappeared, and hauled many a mast and stick of 
oak timber to Freeport, Me. When he wanted bricks to 
erect a new set of buildings, he made them on his own farm. 
A canal was cut with much labor to increase his water

power. Fences which he made of stone and pine stumps a 
hundred years ago still stand. Had he used in a large city 
the same enterprise and industry that he displayed in farm- 
ing, he would have become a very wealthy man. His knowl- 
edge of agriculture was practical rather than theoretical. 
He did what science now teaches without knowing why ; he 
only knew that thereby crops and animals would grow. No 
year brought a failure. He was in military service a short 
time in the War of 1812, on account of which his widow 
received a small pension in her old age. He refused all offers 
of public office, though urged to accept several. The title 
of "Major" was familiarly applied to him, though he would 
not accept that office when it was offered to him. His hos- 
pitality was unlimited. Everybody found a welcome at his 
home. His justice and generosity are illustrated in this, 
that when his uncle Aaron died childless and left to him his 
farm worth $2000, he gave it to the woman who had cared 
for his uncle in his old age and infirmity. He united with 
the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1838 and generously sup- 
ported it as long as he lived. Three miles were not too far 
to drive to meeting with his large family every Sunday in 
the year. No season of the year was too busy for family 
prayer immediately after breakfast. He was a friend to 
many and therefore had many friends. In person he was 
six feet tall, straight as an arrow until bent by sickness and 
age, rather slim than stout, but tough and muscular. He 
slept but little and wanted to be at work all the time. The 
rearing of fourteen children demanded constant thought and 
activity. He was unselfish ; if ever hasty in speech through 
nervousness, immediately sorry therefor and ready to make 
amends. He lived seventy-six years on the spot where he 
was born, moved to Brunswick, Me., in 1872, where he cul- 
tivated a garden, often rode up to Durham, and spent his 
leisure time in reading a religious paper, a few good books 
and principally the Bible. The passing years have brought 
to many a growing appreciation of his noble character. He 
died 7 April 1876 and was buried about a mile from his 
Durham homestead, where rest also the remains of his 
father and mother, wives and several children.

SAMUEL OWEN STACKPOLE. 



FIFTH GENERATION 145 

He married (1) 1 Jan. 1818, by Rev. Jacob Herrick, 
Sarah, daughter of Samuel and Catherine (Clark) Robinson, 
who was born at Durham, 22 June 1794 and died 8 Feb. 
1837. 

Samuel Owen Stackpole married (2) 8 Nov. 1838, by- 
Rev. Allen H. Cobb, Eliza, daughter of Ehjah and Eliza 
(Swett) Macomber of Durham, Me. She was born in 
Durham 9 April 1810 and died in Brunswick, Me., 12 May 
1888. She was educated at Middleborough Academy, Mass., 
and taught in her early days. Her great desire was that 
her children should be educated. She was a woman of 
strong intellect and will, and possessed a firm Christian 
faith. She inherited a puritanic moral sense. She suffered 
much for years with rheumatism, and pain with many 
household cares severely tried her patience, but she meant 
to be kind and just, and the love of a mother for her chil- 
dren endured to the end. 

John Robinson, the emigrant ancestor, moved from Newbury, 
Mass., to Haverhill in 1640 and thence to Exeter, N. H., about 1652, 
where he was killed by Indians 21 Oct. 1675. He had sons, David, 
Jonathan and Stephen. The last was a tax-payer in Exeter in 1662, 
and moved to Dover, N. H. in 1666. He had a son John who worked 
at Fort William Henry in 1723-44, as it is thought. The latter's son, 
John, married 10 Dec. 1722, Sarah Jordan and moved to Cape 
Elizabeth, now South Portland, Me., the same year. Their son, 
Joshua, married 16 Nov. 1764, Sarah Miller and had ten children, of 
whom the oldest, Samuel, b. 1 April 1766, married Dec. 1788, 
Catherine Clark, born 31 Dec. 1769. They moved to Durham and 
had a farm next to that of John Stackpole. 12 ch. See Hist, of 
Durham, Me., p. 245. 

William Maycumber, cooper, was living at Duxbury, Mass., as 
early as 1638. Some think that he was of Scotch origin and that the 
name was McComber, while others find the name Macomber only in 
Devonshire, Eng., for some years before his coming to America. He 
was fined in 1644 for speaking against the Indians. John Macomber, 
supposed to have been his brother, was a freeman and enrolled in the 
militia of Taunton, Mass., in 1643. He died before 1690, leaving a 
son, John, who m. 16 July 1678, Anna, dau. of William and Ann 
(Hailstone) Evans of Taunton. Their son, John Macomber, b. 18 
March 1681, m. 17 March 1707, Elizabeth, dau. of Nathaniel and 
Elizabeth (Rogers) Williams. The youngest son of the latter, Joseph 
Macomber, was b. 28 March 1732 and m. 16 March 1762, Thankful, 
dau. of Capt. William and Elizabeth (Eaton) Canedy and lived in

JOSEPH LEWIS STACKPOLE. 



SIXTH GENERATION 205 

183 

Joseph Lewis Stackpole (William', William*, James% 
Philip-, JamesO born in Boston, 28 Dec. 1808, graduated 
at Harvard in 1824 and at the Law School in 1828. He 
married 2 March 1837, Susan Margaret Benjamin of 
Boston, born 20 April 1815. He was a very intimate friend 
of John Lothrop Motley, the historian, who married a sister 
of Joseph Lewis Stackpole's wife, "thus joining two young 
men already like brothers in their mutual affections". 
Motley writes of him long after his death as "our ever 
lamented friend Stackpole". Oliver Wendell Holmes, in his 
Memoir of Motley says that Motley and Stackpole met 
while traveling in Europe. Stackpole was eight years older 
than Motley, "always cool and good-natured. Mr. Stackpole 
was a man of great intelligence, of remarkable personal 
attractions and amiable character". He was killed in a 
railroad accident 20 July 1847. In the Boston Daily Ad- 
vertiser of July 23, 1847, appeared the following obituary, 
written by Hon. Charles Sumner : 

"The sudden death of Mr. Stackpole has filled a large 
circle of friends with poignant grief. 

"He was a graduate of Harvard University in the class 
of 1824 and afterwards studied law. His studies were 
careful and thorough. His attainments were increased by 
travel in Europe. As a member of the Ex. Com. on Modern 
Languages at the University he made his excellent knowl- 
edge, especially of French, useful to the community. Had 
his professional studies been continued, there is reason to 
believe that in some departments he would have contributed 
in no humble measure to the true fame of his country. An 
article in the American Jurist entitled 'Customs and Origin 
of Customary Law', written by Mr. S. while still very 
young, drew the attention of learned men in Europe as 
much, perhaps, as was ever done by any paper of mere 
jurisprudence from our country. It was the subject of com- 
ment by the late Prof. Park at King's College in one of his 
public lectures, who read extracts from it to his classes, and 
it was reproduced in one of the English Law Journals. 
This was at the time when American productions found 



206 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

little favor from the mother country. This article will be 
read with interest by students of Jurisprudence and His- 
tory, while it must always possess peculiar attractions as 
the early offering of ingenuous youth to a stern profession 
ardently pursued. Perhaps nothing ever appeared in our 
country from one equally young evincing a finer judicial 
spirit. 

"Mr. Stackpole has been removed from the strongest 
family ties, from a large cluster of friends, from enjoy- 
ments richly spread by competence and taste, and from 
opportunities of usefulness which were before him in ample 
fields, while his sun of life was still high and glowing in 
the heavens. He has passed away as a shadow. Let us 
clasp and hold fast the memory of his virtues." 

His wife survived him half a century, dying 24 April 
1896. Three sons

Frederick Dabney Stackpole b. 19 July 1849 in 
Pomeroy, Ohio; m. 8 June 1892, Katharine 
Curtis Osgood. Harvard 1873; Medical 
School 1878. Physician in Roxbury, Mass. 
Died 26 Dec. 1899. The Boston Herald in an 
editorial, "A Valuable life lost", says of him, 
"Dr. Stackpole was a man of rare refinement 
and amiability of character. Thoroughly edu- 
cated and skilled in his profession, his loss will 
be felt by many to whom he had ministered 
as the good physician. He was largely inter- 
ested in philanthropic work also, to which 
much of his time was devoted. It was his 
habit to seek out cases of suffering from pov- 
erty and to take steps to aid the worthy there. 
Numbers of this class will miss him as a kind 
and sympathizing friend. He practised his 
profession more for the opportunities of this 
kind that it afforded him than for the purpose 
of realizing pecuniary remuneration from it, 
which, fortunately, he did not need".

Charles Augustus Stackpole (David D.% John% James% 
Phihp-, JamesO born 13 Sept. 1809, married 4 Aug. 1835, 
Mary Smith Merrill of Portland, Me., who was born 26 Jan. 
1811 in Portland, Me., and died 18 Oct. 1861 in Gorham, 
Me. He died in Lexington, Mass., 16 Dec. 1890. Lived in 
Portland, Bangor and Gorham, Me. 

The following obituary of Charles A. Stackpole was 
written by Dr. Cyrus Hamlin, who founded Robert College, 
and appeared under the heading, "A True Man Fallen". 



220 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

"He was a man of splendid native powers and was fitted 
for college in Portland Academy with every prospect of dis- 
tinction as a scholar. It is greatly to be regretted that cir- 
cumstances should have turned him aside from the very 
path he should have pursued. 

"He put on the Christian armor in early life and was a 
faithful and sound Christian man, a constant student of the 
Bible, a profound believer in it as the Word of the Living 
God. 

"Very early, from 1834 and onward through his whole 
life, he became an earnest advocate of total abstinence, and 
also of the abolition of slavery. It was not by any means 
popular to be at the same time a Temperance fanatic' and 
an 'Abolition fanatic' He was both pre-eminently, in the 
language of those days. His addresses were pungent, relig- 
ious, direct, never long, always listened to with profound 
attention, and often with rapturous applause. In the Tree 
Soil Party' he was a leader but would not be a candidate 
for office. He was uncompromisingly honest and just. His 
interest in moral and social questions often conflicted with 
his business. He was successively merchant, cashier of a 
bank, editor of a newspaper, farmer, and so forth. He 
showed fine capacity in all his employments. He might 
have risen to eminence in every one of them. He lacked 
continuance. He would, moreover, sacrifice a fine prospect 
which he thought might conflict with conscience. His con- 
science ruled him.- He obeyed her dictates without hesita- 
tion. Come what may, he would be at peace with himself. 
He never concealed his sentiments. He never failed openly 
to avow and advocate them, however unpopular, if occasion 
occurred. And yet Mr. Stackpole was generally liked even 
by his opponents. His honesty, frankness, fairness dis- 
armed antagonism to a great extent. 

He had fine social qualities. He had a remarkable mem- 
ory. He was a close reader of history. He had a wide 
acquaintance with men. With regard to the men of influ- 
ence and action, the professional and public men of Maine, 
and the social, religious and political changes of the last 
thirty years he was an encyclopaedia of ready information. 



SIXTH GENERATION 221 

His many articles on the sons of Maine in the Saturday 
issues of the Boston Evening Traveller are specimens of his 
conversation. * * * q that the church were filled with 
members of such clear convictions and earnest lives". 

Hon. Neal Dow wrote to me in 1897, "I knew Charles A. 
Stackpole very well — a very brave man in defending the 
right and resisting the wrong. When he left Portland we 
missed him very much — an earnest and skilful worker in 
the Temperance cause". 

He had four children. 

Martha Dodge b. 12 June 1836, d. in Bangor, Me., 
26 Oct. 1919. Noble, refined, loyal, friendly.

David Dunlap Stackpole (David D.% John*, James% 
Philip-, JamesO born 2 Aug. 1811, married 24 Nov. 1852 
at Portsmouth, N. H., Celinda Plympton, daughter of James 
P. Plympton of Sudbury, Mass. He died at Boston, Mass., 
11 March 1879. His wife died 8 March 1876, aged 53 years. 

The following Memorial Sketch was read before the 
N. E. Hist, and Gen. Society and printed in the Register, 
Vol. XXXIII 1879, p. 362. 

"Mr. Stackpole came to Boston when a young man, and 
served his time with the house of Daniel Deshon and Co., 



222 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

where he won the esteem of the business community. In 
1852 he became associated with Mr. Charles Larkin, under 
the style of Larkin and Stackpole. This business associa- 
tion, which continued till Jan. 1, 1877, was terminated by 
the increasing infirmities of Mr. Stackpole. The firm en- 
joyed the respect and confidence due to a house that main- 
tained its credit by a long and honorable career. Mr. 
Stackpole was an upright and excellent merchant, seeking 
to advance its interests only by fair and worthy means. It 
was said of him, by one who had long held business rela- 
tions with him, that "his word was sufficient, he carried out 
every verbal contract with as much consideration as if it 
were written and recorded". In social life Mr. Stackpole 
was esteemed for his many generous traits. He was a firm 
friend, and his friendship was not limited to mere expres- 
sions of confidence. His many kindly acts will be recalled 
by hundreds who enjoyed his acquaintance. He was a good 
citizen, exerting a wholesome influence in public affairs, 
without seeking or aiming at public notoriety. The loss 
of his wife a few years since deprived him of the counsel 
of a most worthy woman, and left to his guidance a son and 
two daughters. For many years Mr. Stackpole has been 
Consul for the Argentine Republic. His membership dates 
from April 11, 1870". 

The Boston Journal, Jan. 7, 1894, says of him, "His last 
Boston home was in Chester Square. He was not a large 
man, but his figure was as well known in State Street 
as that of any contemporary. * * * He was a very sound 
merchant, and made a careful study of all mercantile ven- 
tures. In war days his patriotism was unbounded. He 
gave of his time, of his energy and of his means most lib- 
erally, and woe betide the unhappy wight who displayed 
any "copperheadism" in his presence. Upon such a char- 
acter he would empty the vials of a righteous wrath until the 
culprit was glad to lapse into sheltering silence. Through 
many a dark era Mr. Stackpole guided his firm's fortunes, 
and he always met every obligation at maturity. He en- 
joyed social life intensely, and extended unbounded hos- 
pitality to a very large circle of friends. When he passed 



SIXTH GENERATION 223 

away he left no one to fill his place. His character was 
shaped in a strong mould, and in one that was not to be 
duplicated".

He was an officer in the Confederate army. Was engaged 
in mercantile life, having interest in a line of steamers 
from New York to Galveston, so that his residence was 
sometimes in New York, but chiefly in Galveston. 

The tidal wave that swept over Galveston 8 Sept. 1900, 
caused the death of the widow of Ellis Merrill Stackpole 
and thirteen of their descendants, so that it blotted out the 
Stackpole name in Texas.

married, 20 Aug. 1878, at New Hampton, N. H., Elizabeth 
Augusta, daughter of Rev. Charles and Lucy Ann (Knowl- 
ton) Blake. She was bom at Sandwich, N. H., 17 Oct. 1846, 
was educated at the Maine State Seminary, (now Bates Col- 
lege), Lewiston, Me., graduating in 1869. She taught in 
the Grammar School of Bloomfield, N. J., five years. Her

Josiah', Hezekiah*, Moses^, Timothy^, to Jaspar Blake, who 
is first mentioned in 1647 at Hampton, N. H. She died 
at 43 Maple Street, Bloomfield, N. J. 21 Feb. 1914, and was 
buried in the cemetery at South Auburn, Me. She was an 
excellent teacher, a faithful friend, a helper in every possi- 
ble good work, an amiable companion, of artistic and lit- 
erary tastes, of firm religious character, unswerving in 
devotion to duty, delighted to sacrifice for others, beloved 
by many and disliked by none, patient and hopeful till the 
very end. She passed to the better land as a tired child 
falls to sleep, without a struggle or sign of pain, and idealiz- 
ing love glorifies her among those without fault before the 
throne of God. 

On Zion's mount they shout and sing; 

Before the Throne they meekly bow; 
Their song makes earth and Heaven to ring; 

God's name Is written on each brow.

hear that Lewis Stackpole is one of the most rising young 
lawyers of the day, that he is very popular everywhere,

THE STACKPOLES OF PENNSYLVANIA 

James Stackpole was residing at or near Carlisle, Penn., 
in 1756. His wife's name was Margaret. He was a mason 
by trade. He can not be connected genealogically with the 
Stackpoles of New England, but it is an interesting coinci- 
dence that the immigrant ancestors of these distantly re- 
lated families should bear the same name, James, and that 
their wives should be named Margaret. James Stackpole 
of Pennsylvania died in 1778. His widow survived him till 
1834. They had four children 

Barbara m. (1) about 1780, Patrick Weldon, (2) 
about 1819, Michael McGuerrn. No children.

REUNIONS 

The philosophers tell us that the only way to know any- 
thing is to learn its relations. The Stackpoles of America 
want to know themselves and so they try to get acquainted 
with their relations. To do this a Stackpole Association 
has been formed and every Stackpole and descendant of a 
Stackpole, however the surname may be spelled, is consid- 
ered a member of the Association, whether the annual due 
of twenty-five cents be paid or not. The Association holds 
an annual reunion in the last week in August. The first 
one was at the old homestead in Rollinsford, N. H., 24 
August 1898. The meetings since that date have been, in 
order, at Central Park, Somersworth, N.H., Lily Pond Park, 
Saugus, Mass., Old Orchard Beach, Maine, the Old Home- 
stead again, "The Pines", Haverhill, Mass., the Marshall 
House, York Harbor, Maine, Sea View Hotel, Hampton 
Beach, N. H., two years in succession, the Old Homestead 
again, Central Park, Somersworth, N. H., Cape Porpoise, 
Maine, the Moulton House, Dunstan's Corner, Maine, The 
Champernowne, Kittery Point, Maine, Durham, N. H., the 
Lawrence House, Hampton Beach, N. H., the Fairbanks 
Homestead, Dedham, Mass., the Fairmount House, York 
Beach, Maine, Central Park, Somersworth, N. H., Old 
Orchard Beach, Maine, the Sea Breeze, Portsmouth, N. H. 
and the Sea View Hotel, Hampton Beach, N. H. 
From fifty to one hundred and fifty have met at these an- 
nual gatherings. Family ties have been strengthened. 
Valuable acquaintances have been made. Sympathy and 
help have been extended to some who were sick and aged. 
Our forefathers have been duly honored. Patriotism has 
been stirred. Ambitions for higher education and increased 



338 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

usefulness have been aroused. The annual reunion has 
been for many a day of rare enjoyment and uplift of spirit. 
Not all the Stackpoles are rich, though very few have 
been poor. The Reunions recognize no difference in rank 
nor in property. We are a pure democracy, brothers and 
sisters in one family. Character and achievement are all 
that count with us. We never think to ask to what political 
party or to what church one of our number belongs. We 
belong to the human race and especially to the Stackpole 
part of it. Those who can not come because of distance, ill 
health or other good reasons are asked to send letters to 
cheer the rest. "Come thou with us and we will do thee 
good."
