The ancient name Strine is a Norman name that would have been developed in England after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. This name was a name given to a strong or courageous person. Checking further we found the name was derived from the German word streng, of the same meaning.

The surname Strine was first found in Nottinghamshire where they held a family seat from early times, where they were Lords of the manor of Eaton, and were conjecturally descended from Fulk, who held the lands of Eaton from Roger de Bully at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086. The lands, at that time, consisted of two mills and a garden. Eaton is the celebrated site of the Battle of the Idle in 617 between Redwald and Ethelfrith of Northumbria.

Before the last few hundred years the English language had no fixed system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations occurred commonly in Anglo Norman surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Strine were recorded, including Stringer, Stringar, Stringers and others.

The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Strine arrived in North America very early: Mr. Stringer who settled in Somers Island in 1662; Samuel Stringer settled in Virginia in 1622; followed by James in 1647; John in 1651; and Lettice in 1653.
