old english (anglo-saxon)
STRæT TŪN > STRATTON

This name is of Medieval English origin and is locational from any of the various places so called in for example, Bedfordshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Norfolk, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Suffolk, Surrey, Wiltshire and Cornwall. The derivation of all the places, except Cornwall, is from the Old English pre 7th Century “stræt”, a Roman Road, plus “tūn”, a settlement, and the following examples are first recorded spelling of Stratton. In turn the name means “settlement on the road”.
