The name is first recorded in 1314 when William Stark appears in the Fine Court Rolls of Essex as a witness. The surname is well recorded in Scotland from the late 14th Century onwards. The name, with its variant forms Starkie and Starkey, is in Ireland since the 14th Century. A notable bearer was the 19th Century American businessman and politician Benjamin Stark.
