Strangwige Families of Deptford in Kent

Quite how this family (and the other small ones at the bottom) may link-up is unknown - and may indeed be totally unrelated. So not much has been discovered and the research fades out in the late 1700’s. However there are some references to the surname as early as 1563. In fact British History Online has an example from 1535 of a document containing - “Strangways (Strangwige), Sir Giles”. Also the London Subsidy Roll 409 lists an Arthur Strangwige (Inholder in foorestreete) when assessed on 1-Oct-1600.

Any ideas, theories or clues? Is this surname from the same origins as Strangwick and / or Strangwich? For according to one source - “The surname of STRANGWICK is a variant of the name STRANGWAYS and was of the locational group of surnames meaning one who came from Strangeways, a place in County Lancashire. The name was derived from the Old English word STRANGGEWAEC, literally meaning the dweller by the river with a strong current.”

As with all these family trees there are likely to be errors and gaps - since few (no?) family trees are ever complete or provide the fully detailed story of something as complex as a family’s history . And it is impossible to wait until all the details are confirmed before publishing what fragments are known about a family tree - since family trees will always have gaps. All the information listed here has been obtained from publicly available sources. Sources put online by both official outlets and through the efforts of amateur researchers. Also note that many of the BMD entries only refer to the Quarter and the Registration District where the event was registered - since these are a main source of the public records.

The latest version of all the family trees is available online at our Webtrees site. Please get in touch with any corrections so that we can be as complete and accurate as possible.
