Alston Genealogy & History

Alston is an English and Scottish name with two possible origins. It could be a locational name given to someone who lived in a town called Alston, a name derived from an Old English personal name and the word tun, meaning settlement. Alston could also have its origin in the Middle English personal name Alstan, a convergence of Old English names including Ae(dh)elstan (noble stone) and Ealhstan (alter stone). Alston family history is first recorded with Richard de Aluredeston (an alternate spelling), who lived in Staffordshire in 1194. Alston genealogy includes the teacher, painter, and sculptor Charles Alston. The Alston family motto is immotus, which means immovable.
