STRUTHERS Family HistoryThis interesting surname has two possible sources the first being that it is a topographical name for a person who lived by marshy ground overgrown with brushwood and is derived from the Olde English 'strod', the Middle English 'strother', meaning damp land. However it is also a locational name from any of the various places named with this element, for example 'Strother' in Northumberland, 'Struther' in Lanarkshire or Struthers in Fife, Scotland. Although this name is popular in Scotland, references point to an origin further south, perhaps from the place in Northumberland where the ancient family of Strothers were lords of the manor of Kirk-Newton in the barony of Wark-on-the-Tweed.
