mike kenneth stroud
My earliest anc found so far is a WILLIAM (believe he came from JOHN) in southern VA. married to Eliz Estridge. Moved to Hillsboro, NC early yo mid 1700s and fought in Rev. died in 1786 and his6 boys migrated to Viola, TN. Several died there and some moved west to MO. Would like to go beyond WILL.
From London,England my late father was from South London which leads me to believe that we are from the county of Kent i.e Strood. Some years ago I was informed that our name means someone that lives by marshy ground, I'm guessing farmers.
My Father's Aunt and Uncle (Jack Stroud) lived in North London.

I have been involved in hobby research of the family for over 20 years. I'm really excited about a new way to study genealogy that involves DNA research. I was wondering if you have ever submitted DNA to see which branch of the Strouds you fit with most? We are trying to fill in several missing links. If you're interested, visit the following site. I'm part of the I2 group- my DNA is outlined as descendant of S-25 Daniel Stroud b. 1821 TN USA. We would love to have any male Strouds in the study if you're immediate ancestor is not already listed. http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/stroud/ John K.

You would have to follow your tree back forever to find out the true geneology. If it comes from the city of Stroud near Gloucestershire then you are looking at someone who could have taken the surname due to living in the location but where either Celt's of the Dobunni tribe, Welsh, Roman who invade and pushed out the Celt's, German from the Anglo Saxon who pushed out the Romans and Finally the Norman Conquest. So our ancestors could be Celtic's, Welsh/Briton's, Roman, German, Norman or any Combination of the bunch. You also have to acount for Scottish and Irish Slaves from the mid 1600's to the early 1800's. It is possible that in much the way that African slaves took the Surnames of their early American owners that the Scotch and Irish were forced to in England as well. I know that for me personally I have brown hair and hazel eyes but my beard has, brown, black, red and blond color. I think I am the Heinz 57 of the Stroud family.
want to learn more about the strouds leaving germany and for what reasons
My Grandmothers maiden name was Stroud whom married a Lewis I am trying to find out anything that I can about that part of my family that I can. They lived in Mississippi............
Hey, Darlene. You and I are probably from the same family. Mary Isabelle Stroud married William Taylor Lewis in Neshoba Co. MS later moving to Scott Co. MS. Also Eunice C. Stroud married John C. Lewis- they are the parents of Harry Lewis b. 1938 (still living in Scott Co.).
Would like to connect with the other strouds in the world!

My line of Strouds originated in Stroud, England and my grandfather's family was born and raised in McDonough, GA. His name was Hudson Stroud. Would love to connect.
