Two brothers James and Charles Stone arrived in South Africa as 1820 Settlers. They were both gardeners. In the 1930's there were two Stone families who lived in Queenstown. Each family had six boys. One family was Afrikaans speaking, they were builders and business people and settled in Queenstown. The boys of the other family who's father Henry worked for South African Railways all left Queenstown to settle in Johannesburg, Durban, East London and George after seeing active service in North Africa during World War 2. John and Charles were taken prisoner at Tobruk and Fred saw action at El Alemain and in Italy. Fred later settled in George where he played cricket and rugby and was instrumental as Chairman of the Local Sports Union in the building of the Outeniqua Park Stadium.
