STONEHAM, North and South
Both names have the same origin. They were distinguished in medieval times as 'Abbot's' and 'Bishop's' Stoneham respectively, being held by Hyde Abbey and the see of Winchester respectively. The place name is Old English 'Stanham'='stone estate', either from stone built buildings or from the character of the land.

description
Stoneham
otherwise: Ad Lapidem
The place is described in text Cox 1738
- Hampshire
refce: Cox 1738
... Cymberth ... Abbot, ... baptized as Bede tells us, two Brothers of Arvandus, petty King of the Isle of Wight, just before they were murdered; for Cedwalla the Saxon invaded that Island, and these two Boys made their Escape and hid themselves at a little Town called Ad Lapidem, but being betrayed to Cedwalla, they were killed at his Command. Mr. Camden seems rightly to conjecture, that Stoneham, a little Town, not far from Redbridge, was the Place where these young Princes lay hid.
