The family history of the ancient name Stone was found in the archives. Stone is a locality name meaning 'at the stone', from a residence beside a notable roadside stone or rock. Variants of this name include Stones, Stoner and Stoneman. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Warin de la Stane of County Devonshire, a Reginald ad Ston of County Bedfordshire and a John de la Stone of County Sussex who were all recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273. A Johannes del Stone was recorded in the "Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379.

In Ireland this name and its variants were introduced into Ulster Province by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. During the 'Plantations of Ireland' in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries Ireland was colonized by the English Crown with this period marking the end of Gaelic supremacy in Ireland. This period brought an influx of settlers into the country but, unlike the earlier Anglo-Norman invasion of the twelfth century that resulted in a full integration into Irish society of the new arrivals, the same never occurred with the Ulster Planters who maintained their own distinct identity.

Stone it is also used as a synonym of the names Muckley, Clogherty and Mulclohy.The Stone family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Stone descendants.
