It is believed that all Strattons, Stratons, Strettons, Struttons and other spellings of the name descended from Walter de Stratton of 15th century England. Walter de Stratton descended from a long line of French royalty that goes back to the 10th century Duke of Normandy. I have recently found Walter's ancestry that goes back to the year 160 AD.
Walter de Stratton also had one ancestor, King Henry I, that held the throne of England for a time, and a son, John Stratton, that was married to a fourth generation grand daughter, Elizabeth Luttrell, of King Edward I, of England.
However, we have only been able to take our line of Strattons back to Hampton House Stratton, b. 1795, in North Carolina. We have found two men that have strong possibilities of being the father of Hampton House--John Hampton Stratton, born in Virginia and Suriah Stratton, lived in Virginia. We are putting forth every effort to find Hampton House's father and hope to have him for you soon.
