Stradling History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

There has been suggestion that the Stradling surname arrived in Britain with the Danes, well before 1066. However, it seems that at least one line of Stradling returned to Britain after 13th century crusades, deriving from Strattligen, Switzerland.

Early Origins of the Stradling family

The surname Stradling was first found in Warwickshire. Early on, Sir Peter Stradling, who already held Neath Castle, Glamorgan, Wales, married Joan de Hawey, heiress of St Donat's Castle. He also acquired estates in Somerset and Dorset. In some instances, the surname was Latinized Easter Lingus which was corrupted to Estarling. First on record appears to be sir John Stradling (circa 1230-1293).
