The surname Straiton, also seen as Straton and Stratton, is of territorial origin, coming from the barony of Straiton in the parish of Liberton in Midlothian. There is also a barony of Straiton in Ayrshire, and a barrony of Stratton in Fife.
In 1285, a Richard de Stratun is recorded as being a messanger of Alexander III, and he may be the same person as the Richard de Straton who was witness to a charter seven years later, in 1292.
