The Anglo-Saxon name Strangmway comes from when the family resided in the settlement of Strangeways in the county of Lancashire. The surname Strangmway belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Strangmway Early Origins



The surname Strangmway was first found in Lancashire where it is generally thought that the name was derived from Strangwish, near Manchester which was held by the family in the 14th century. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

In fact, the English "Gentleman Pirate" Henry Strangways (died 1562) often spelt his name "Strangwish."

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Strangmway or a variant listed above: William and Robert Strangway settled in Maryland in 1750.
