Whitstone was an ancient hundred of Gloucestershire, England. From the 18th century or before it comprised two adjacent divisions, which included the ancient parishes of

Lower Division
Upper Division

The hundred existed at the time of the Domesday Book in 1086, but covering a smaller area. By 1220 the adjacent Blacklow hundred had been absorbed. The ancient meeting place of the hundred was probably at Whitestones Field in the parish of Hardwicke, although meetings were later held at Quedgeley, Stonehouse, Wheatenhurst and Frampton.[1]
