About the Kingston surname

Kingston Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of the numerous places throughout England called Kingston or Kingstone. Almost all of them, regardless of the distinction in spelling, were originally named in Old English as cyningestun ‘the king’s settlement’, i.e. royal manor. However, Kingston upon Soar in Nottinghamshire is named as ‘royal stone’, while Kingstone in Somerset is ‘king’s stone’; both probably being named for some local monument.
