Estrées (name)

Estrées is an old French family name. The etymology of the name is from strata, after "strata"/"estrée" - the stone-layered Roman roads which gave their name to numerous villages in the north of France through which such a road passes (see Estrées). Other variations on the family name are: Estrée, d'Estrées, d'Estrée, Destree, D'Estree, de Lestrée, de Tray, and DeTray (the last two being Anglicized versions of d'Estrées).

The name was borne by a French noble family, the Maison d'Estrées, of which some members also held the title of Duc d'Estrées.
