The Strattford surname is a habitation name derived from one of various places, so named. These place names come from the Old English words "stroet," and "ford;" thus describing a location where the road crossed a stream. Places named Stratford that can be found in the Domesday Book include towns in Suffolk, Wiltshire, and of course Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, held at that time by the Bishop of Worcester.

Strattford Early Origins



The surname Strattford was first found in Suffolk where a Robert de Stratford was listed in the Domesday Book, as holding the Hundred of Samford both before and after the Conquest. John de Stratford (died 1348) was Archbishop of Canterbury and Treasurer and Chancellor of England.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Virtuti nihil obstat et armis
Motto Translation: Nothing resists valour and arms.
