Stratton is an interesting locational name from many places in England. Stratton is derived from pre-seventh-century old English straet, meaning road, and tun, meaning a settlement. The family seat is in Wiltshire on land granted them by Duke William of Normandy for their valor at the Battle of Hastings. The family motto is I strive to rise again. Stratton family history has the first recording of the name as Richard de Stratton in Dorset Placenames in 1199. Noteworthy Stratton genealogy members are gold prospector and philanthropist W. E. Stratton, MIT President Julius Adams Stratton, and Ohio Supreme Court Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton.

Name Variations:  Stratton, de Stratton.
