Where did the English Streetman family come from? What is the English Streetman family crest and coat of arms? When did the Streetman family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Streetman family history?

The origins of the Streetman name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in any of a number of places called Street, in Hertshire, Kent and Somerset. Streetman is a local surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Other types of local surnames include topographic surnames, which could be given to a person who lived beside any physical feature, such as a hill, stream, church or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. The surname Streetman comes from the Old English word stręt, which means Roman road. In the Middle Ages, this word came to denote the main street in a village, and so the surname may also refer to someone who lived on the main street.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Streetman family emigrate to North America:
