Soon after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, the name Stringham was recognized on the island as a name for a strong or courageous person. Checking further we found the name was derived from the German word streng, of the same meaning.

Stringham Early Origins



The surname Stringham 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.

Stringham Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Stringer, Stringar, Stringers and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlanti c. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Stringham or a variant listed above:
