The Strode family were of ancient and noble families belonging to the Huguenots (the Protestants of France).  They left their homes in the year 1358, and made their abode in the dens and caves of the valleys of Piedmont, Italy, until after the Romans were defeated at Toulouse.  During the reign of Cromwell, they went to England, and had their names and arms recorded.

The father of William Strode, Samuel Strode, George Strode and Edward chartered a vessel and set sail for America about 1690.  He died en route.  William, George, and Samuel went into PA, SC and GA.  Edward Strode, the younger, about whom this article is written, was the youngest and migrated to VA.  He died in Berkeley Co., VA, aged 108.

He was the father of John Strode, Sr., who was the founder of Strode’s Station, Clarke Co., KY.  John Strode, Sr., was born in VA 11 Jan 1736.  His wife, Mary, was born in VA 22 Feb 1734.  They had twelve children: Elizabeth, Edward, Elenor, James, Mary, John, Nancy, Susanna, Jeremiah, Letitia, Stephen, and Waller.

John Strode, 6th child of John Strode, Sr., was born 25 Sep 1763, and died 2 Aug 1832.  He married Ruth Constant (daughter of John Constant). She was born 24 March 1770 and died 21 Aug 1845.  They had 15 children: John, James, Mary, Jeremiah, Sally, Abigail, Stephen, Letitia, Ann, Elenor, Elizabeth, Constance, Martha, William, and Nelson.
