An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Strowbridge reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Strowbridge family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Strowbridge family lived in Devon, at Trowbridge. Further research showed the name was derived from the Old English word for a wooden bridge.

Strowbridge Early Origins



The surname Strowbridge was first found in Devon where conjecturally they are believed to be descended from two Norman knights Richard and Reginald who held the lands of Modbury from the Count of Mortaine as shown in the Domesday Book which was surveyed in 1086 A.D. The land was shown to have 30 goats.
