Stange in German means poleStange is somewhat different >from staengel, staengel.
Probably it means, IMHO:
Somone living in a place called: Stangelberg.
Though I cannot find the place,
there is a family name "von Stangelberg" on Google,
so a geographical location is not unlikely.

MODERATOR NOTE: The "a" with an umlaut in the name "staengel"
was replaced with "ae" to accomodate our system.
