Strawbridge History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


The Strawbridge surname is a habitational name, taken on from a place so called in Hatherleigh, Devon.
Early Origins of the Strawbridge family

The surname Strawbridge was first found in Devon where there is an early record of John Strowbridge in 1559. A John Strobridge was recorded in the Heraldic Visitations of Devon in 1620. He was said to son of Arthur Strobridge of Modbury, grandson of John Strobridge of Bigbury, and great-grandson of John Strobridge of Colleton.

Strawbridge Spelling Variations

A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Strawbridge, Strowbridge, Strobridge and others.
