Strout History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Strout family

The surname Strout was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1188 when Aileric Strutt held estates in that shire. Although it is said that the family are descended from Godfried Strutz de Hinklred Chief of the Swiss Auxilliaries in 1240, who obtained his freedom, it should be noted that the family were settled in Suffolk at least some 60 years before.
