Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of numerous places throughout England called Kingston or Kingstone. Almost all of them derive from Old English cyning, cing ‘king’ (genitive cyninges, cinges) + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’, though some have a different etymology, such as Kingston on Soar in Nottinghamshire, which derives from Old English cyne ‘royal’ + stān ‘stone’.
