Thomas Stone, eldest son of Governor William Stone and Verlinda Cotton his wife, was born about the year 1635 in Accomac County, Virginia. His youth was spent in that county, and as a young man he accompanied his parents to Maryland.

On July 15, 1651, there was surveyed for Thomas Stone 350 acres of land known by the name of "St. Leonard's", lying at the mouth of St. Leonard's Creek, which on September 9, 1663, he and his wife conveyed to Richard Smith, of Calvert County, the same being held by Richard Smith as late as 1707. At the time of his father's death in 1660 Thomas Stone was domiciled at Bustard's Island in the Patuxent, but he later established his seat at "Poynton Manor" in Nanjemoy Hundred. The warrant for "Poynton Manor" named 4,000 acres, but later by a resurvey it was found to contain 5,000 acres. The augmented share of Thomas Stone was 1,460 acres, thereupon, he assigned 100 acres to Henry Frankon, 300 acres to Francis Thornton and Thomas Bayly, and 300 acres to John Cabell.

On February 2, 1663, Thomas Stone conveyed to Henry Hyde a portion of "Westbury Manor", formerly belonging to Thomas Weston, and the next year a 200-acre portion to Henry Banister. On May 28, 1667, Thomas Stone and Mary his wife, of Poynton Manor, deeded to John Stone, Gent., 500 acres of "Nanjemoy" for 20,000 pounds of tobacco.

In 1661 Thomas Stone was appointed a commissioner of Charles County, with Henry Adams, James Lindsey, Thomas Baker, Francis Pope, William Marshall, Walter Beane, and Joseph Harrison, Gent. In 1663 he appointed William Calvert his attorney and described him as "brother."
The will of Thomas Stone was negotiated in Charles County on April 24, 1676, and admitted to probate on October 5, 1676, by John and Elizabeth Stone. The entire estate was to be held in trust by his widow, Mary, until his two sons arrived at the age of 18 years. Richard was to inherit the plantation then leased by Simon Stevens and a portion of "Poynton Manor," while William was to receive the residue of the lands including the parental dwelling.

Within a few months after her husband's death, the widow married John Blackfan. Her second matrimonial adventure was brief, for "John Blackfan of Nanjemoy" dated his will January 31, 1677, which was proved on March 12, 1677, by Samuel Eaton and Robert Polts. He named a brother and sisters Mary and Elizabeth, and bequeathed property to his step-sons William and Richard Stone, providing no posthumous child was born to his widow. The residue of the estate was devised to his wife Mary, whom he named as executrix.

At the September 1677 court, the sheriff issued citations to "Mary Blackfan the relict of Thomas Stone and the executrix of John Blackfan" who had been the executor of Richard Owens. His widow married thirdly Joseph Manning. She predeceased her last husband, but is believed to have become the mother of his children as there is no knowledge of a previous marriage. Joseph Manning died in 1717 and named his daughter, Esther the wife of Thomas Matthews, and his son John Manning. In 1718/19, John Manning of Charles County by will named Matthew Stone and Thomas Stone Jr. as overseers of his The will, however, was not proved until 1735
