Streety History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Anglo-Saxon name Streety comes from the family having resided in any of a number of places called Street, in Hertshire, Kent and Somerset. Streety 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 Streety comes from the Old English word stræt, 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.

Migration of the Streety family to the New World and Oceana


In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Streetys to arrive on North American shores: William Street who settled in Maine in 1602; 18 years before the "Mayflower"; Nicholas and Alice Street who settled in New England in 1630; Humphrey and Elizabeth Street settled in Virginia in 1650.
