Early Origins of the Traint family
The surname Traint was first found in Northumberland
where they held a family seat
from very ancient times, Lords of the manor of Streatlam, Stewards of Richmondshire (now Yorkshire
,) and were closely associated with the ancient Percies, Earls of Northumberland
, and the Royal Balliol family.
Stainton with Streatlam in Durham was an ancient family seat. "This hamlet at an early period belonged to the Traynes, lords of Streatlam; and was acquired, by marriage with the heiress of Trayne, by Sir Adam Bowes. The estate afterwards became separated from the Streatlam property, but was re-united to it in 1526." CITATION[CLOSE]
