Name Meaning

English (southern): habitational name from places in Gloucestershire and Middlesex, so named from Old English strōd ‘marshy ground overgrown with brushwood’. Strood in Kent is named with the same word, and some examples of the surname are no doubt derived from this term in independent use.
