SURNAME DICTIONARY/ SLOINNTE NA h-EIREANN

De Stacpoole: Very rare: Meath. Ir. Galldubh (black foreigner-this is not derogatory in Irish). This family, then called Stakbolle, came from Wales 13 cent. Hence the Gaelic cognomen which was also used by the Stapletons, q.v. MIF.
Galldubh: Stapleton, Stackpoole: Leas-ainm a ghlac na clanna Angla-Normannacha chucu ins na céadta Gaelacha (13ú & 14ú). Bhí Stapleton i gCill Chainnigh ó thosach an Ionraidh agus tháinig Stackpoole ón mBreatain Bhig go dtí an Pháil sa 13 céad. MIF.
Stackpoole: fairly rare: Limerick-Kerry. Known in Irish as Gall Dubh (dark foreigner) as well as de Stacapúl. They were Anglo-Normans, 13 cent, from a place in Wales. MIF.
Stapleton: numerous: Tipperary-Kilkenny etc. Anglo-Normans who settled in Kilkenny after the Invasion, they became gaelicised and adopted the patronymic Mac an Ghaill (son of the foreigner), which was re-anglicised Gaule, q.v. MIF.
