Griffiths Index on CD (guarenteed 10% error rate with all
indexes) has a STRANNAGE, John, in County Down, Newtownards.
It has Stranneys (Stranny, Strany) in the same area. SInce
we know that the vowel changes fast I searched for
str*n* and found STRUNNOX, Robert, in County Down, parish
of Shankill. He's probably part of the Strannage crowd.
The 1881 British census is now free at www.familysearch.org and
gives you some ideas. STRANACK born in London and
Kent. One, living in Cumberland, was born in Ireland:
STRANIX. Eyeballing them you hae two populations: one
in London/Kent and one in north west England, adjacent to...
County Down! Everything can be found in London. In 5 minutes
can't tell if it is also a native Kent surname or folks who took the
high road to London.
IGI has a Stronich in Scotland, and here's a Stranick in
Antrim. A STRANNUCK in London.....
The key to searching indexes for this surname is being open to
spelling alternatives. SInce not being so is the leading reason
why non pros cannot find their families -- unless you are rich
(if so....email me privately <blink>) check out the alternatives
in IGI. They might help find the family in the censuses. As will
So you might find your family in Ireland or England, or even,
though less likely, Scotland. In England: south east or north.
Best of luck,
