Stone families in and around Lurgan in the 1901 Census


The first record is the family of my wife's great grandparents Daniel and Mary Stones (spelt today Stone). My guess is that the second family, their neighbours at house 6, is headed by the widow of Daniel's brother Michael. These two families are at the same addresses 10 years later in the 1911 census. There are also families named Stone (without the 's' at the end) at houses 7, 8 and 9 at Lurgan.

If we consider how remote the rural area of Lurgan is even today in 2011, to have families named Stone and Stones occupying 4 consecutive farm houses strongly suggests that the four families have to be related.  

I have not come across the last family of Charles Stones before.

Incidentally there are many other families with the surname Stone recorded in the general area on the borders of Offaly and Westmeath in the 1911 census, about 700 individuals with the surname Stone in Ireland altogether.
