Kate Stone's names are the subject of some confusion. Her maiden name was Partridge. Her pseudonym was Partrige. She was known as Kate Margaret Stone, or even Kate Mountford Stone (Biographical Register), but her son, Leon Stone calls her Kate Montfort Partridge Stone (obituary in Southerly 14.4 (1953): 270 and Kate Mountfort Partridge Stone Southerly 17.4 (1956): 115).
