WILLS INDEX FROM 1383 to 1857
The following suporting  information, provided by Richard Carruthers, provides a valuable insight into the wills and sentences for STRANGE and variants found among Prerogative Court of Canterbury wills 1384-1858:

The PCC wills database employs the Gregorian calendar year number for dates before 1752, which affects those dates which would often be represented by the transitional double-dating system employing Julian (Old Style) and Gregorian (New Style) reckoning for dates between 1 January and 24 March until 1752, when the calendar reform was formally adopted in the jurisdiction of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury.

There are surname spellings may or may not denote members of the STRANGE family, but which STRANGE researchers should be aware of..  These include instances of titles of nobility employing the name STRANGE rather than instances of the surname per se.  There may, nonetheless, be a genealogical link between such titles and persons surnamed STRANGE or variant as such titles often reflect a derivation from earlier families bearing as a surname the name now borne as a title.

There are 184 documents in toto for:
Le Strange, Le Strannge, Le Strange and L’Estrange
Strannge, Strange
Strang (I find this spelling among Wiltshire folk who are also called Strange, Strainge or even Straing)
Strainge, Straing - Individual cases should be examined for what the additional name information they contain may indicate. Some discussion of this has already occurred under the lesser variants during the course of this analysis of the PCC wills and sentences collection for STRANGE and variants which I have collected, arranged chronologically, and commented on in this message. To ensure maximum coverage I used Str*ng* in the surname slot in the wills search engine which yielded 903 results from which I made my selection of 184 documents meriting inclusion in a Strange and variants one-name study.
Straunge, Stange
Strounge  - I included this variant because of its close parallel to the sound of the surname variant Straunge, a known variant of Strange. It may be, of course, that this is simply a rare instance of a variant of Strong or Stronge which also came up under my research parameters, though I eliminated those results from this survey

Title forms
Baroness Strange [subsidiary title of the Charlotte Murray 1731-1805, Duchess of Atholl, see 108 below. Baroness Strange was Her Grace’s title in her own right. Her maiden name was also Murray as in 1753 she had married her 1st cousin, John Murray, who succeeded her father (his paternal uncle), the 2nd Duke of Atholl, as the 3rd Duke of Atholl on the former’s death in 1764. The Strange title, which devolved to her on her father’s death in 1764, had come down to him via his maternal descent from James Stanley, 7th Earl of Derby. The peerage was a barony by writ of summons (1628) created in error when James Stanley as his living father’s heir and was summoned to Parliament under the mistaken belief that his father enjoyed as a junior title, the more ancient title of Baron Strange of Knokyn, which had been held by members of his family from 1482-1594, when it had fallen into abeyance among coheirs. Titles/peerages created by writ rather than letters patent are heritable along female lines, whence the passage of this second Strange barony into the Murray family from the Stanleys.]

Lord Viscount Strange [where James Stanley, 1716/7-1771, the heir of Sir Edward Stanley, 11th Earl of Derby, was incorrectly called by the courtesy title, Lord Strange, hence the description commonly called. His surname is Stanley. He died before his father, and so was never became the Earl of Derby, a title his son instead inherited in 1776.]

Lord Stanley and Straunge [subsidiary titles of Sir Henry Stanley, 4th Earl of Derby, K.G., see 10 below. His son Ferdinando, 5th Earl of Derby, died in 1594 when the baronies of Stanley and Strange fell into abeyance {see the foregoing entry} among his daughters {and later amongst their heirs}]

The Stanley's Strange of Knokyn [or Knockyn/Knockin] barony derived from the fact that George Stanley, heir of Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby, K.G., had married circa 1482, Joan, Baroness Strange of Knockyn, daughter and heir of John Le Strange, 8th Lord [i.e. Baron] Strange of Knockyn. George was summoned to Parliament in his wife’s title fro 1482-1497, and died in 1497 without ever succeeding to his father’s earldom. His heir Thomas Stanley, became the 10th Baron Strange on his father’s death in 1497, and succeeded his paternal grandfather as 2nd Earl of Derby on the latter’s death in 1504. Thus a second Barony of Strange of Knokyn had been created in 1482 for the husband of the heiress of one created by writ of summons in 1299. So ultimately, these wills pertain to people with an important descent from the (Le) Strange family.
