Hello Valerie.
This might be of no use at all, but see if any of it makes sense.
My ggg grandfather, Gottleib Boccius, came to London from Saxony (bordering Poland) in the 1700s. He set up business with Johann Frederick Steinberg, also from Saxony.
Johann's ancestors are to be found on the IGI both in and around Leipzig, and he had children in London (also on IGI), around the turn of the 18th/19th century.
East End? Well, although they both lived in Shepherd's Bush, which is west-ish, their business seems to have been connected with fish, and their office was next to Billingsgate Fish Market, which was certainly East End.
Ring any bells? (And, of course, Stone is just anglicization of Stein...)
Hope something helps.
Allen (London)
