Background: Johnstone comes from "John's toun", not "John's stone" or John's son." Historically, "Johnston" has been an alternate spelling of the surname. The first known person of this name was John of Johnstone, who in 1174 gave his name to the lands of Annandale in Dumfrieshire which he had been granted. His son, called Gilbert Johnstone ("Gillibertus de Johnistoun") appears on records between 1194-1214 and onwards, presumably taking his surname from the town his father had established - "Johnstone" or "John's toun".

Variations: Johnestowne, Johnstone, Joneston, Johnstounne, Johnestoun, Joniston, Johngston, Johnstoun, Johnnestoun, Johnnstoune, Johnston, Jonstoun, Johanstoun, Lockerby, Lockerbie, Rome.
