STRINGER Family History

This interesting surname, of Olde English and Anglo-Saxon origins, is an occupational name for a maker of rope or strings, and specifically for the famous long bows used for both hunting and war. The derivation is from the pre 7th century word "streng", meaning string or cord. The surname was first recorded in the late 12th Century (see below), and was a popular Yorkshire surname by the 14th Century, Yorkshire being already famous for the production of textiles and other wool based products. Early examples of the surname recordings taken from authentic registers and charters of the medieval period include Roger le Strenger, in the "Middle English occupation lists" for Yorkshire in the year 1293, whilst Godwyna Strenger, a lady, was listed in "Kirby's Quest", a history of the county of Somerset in the year 1328...
