Slone History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



A people of the Scottish/English Borderlands known as the Strathclyde Britons were the first to use the name Slone. It is derived from the Gaelic personal name Sluaghadhán. Slone is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. The surname Slone is derived from the given name Sluaghadhán, which derived from the Gaelic word, sluaghadh, and meant, raid.


Early Origins of the Slone family


The surname Slone was first found in Kirkcudbrightshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Chille Chuithbheirt), part of the present day Council Area of Dumfries and Galloway, former county in Southwestern Scotland, where they held a family seat. Johnn Slowane of Garoche was a juror on assize at Kirkcudbright in 1508.

Other early records include a William Slowane, who held a tenement near Dalkeith, in Midlothian in 1504.

The name has also existed in Ireland since at least the 15th Century, when bearers of Sloane emigrated to eastern Ulster, in Armagh and Down. However, there is some debate that the name also has native Irish roots, and had existed in Ireland prior to this emigration.

Migration of the Slone family to the New World and Oceana


The freedom, opportunity, and land of the North American colonies beckoned. There, Scots found a place where they were generally free from persecution and where they could go on to become important players in the birth of new nations. Some fought in the American War of Independence, while others went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these Scottish settlers have been able to recover their lost national heritage in the last century through highland games and Clan societies in North America. Among them:
