Stratford is a place name found in many English-speaking countries. It derives from the Old English words stræt (a street, more specifically a Roman road) and ford (a river-crossing). A variant of the name is "Stretford".
Famous quotes containing the word stratford:
“Ful weel she soong the service dyvyne,
Entuned in hir nose ful semely,
And Frenssh she spak ful faire and fetisly,
After the scole of Stratford atte Bowe,
For Frenssh of Parys was to hire unknowe.”
—Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?1400)
