    Because of the outbreak of war from Napoleonic France, Britain decided to blockade the trade between the United States and the French. The US then fought this action and said it was illegal under international law. Britain supplied Native Americans who raided settlers living on the frontier and halting expansion westward. In 1814, one of the British raids stormed into Washington D.C. burning down the capital. Neither the Americans or the British wanted to continue fighting, so negotiations of peace began. After Treaty of Ghent was signed, Unaware of the treaty, British forces invaded Louisiana but were defeated in January 1815.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Strättlingen near Thun in Switzerland. The English landed family bearing this name, with a seat at Saint Donats (Glamorgan), traces its origins to John de Estratlinges (died c. 1293), who came to England from Switzerland with Otto de Grandison, Edward I's companion-in-arms.
