STREET Family HistoryRecorded as Streat, Strete, Street, the rare diminutives Streeten, Streeton, Strethell, Strettell and Strettle, as well as the habitational forms of Streeter and Streets, this is an English medieval surname. It can be either locational from the town of Street in the county of Somerset, or the villages of Street in Hereford or Kent, or topographical and describe a person who lived by a street or in the case of the diminutives, a small or narrow street. It derives from the Olde English pre 6th century word 'straet', meaning a paved road, although originally it may have had the specific meaning of a Roman road, all known places being situated on such roads.
