The Alloway Strange family arose in New Kent County, Virginia at the same time the Blisland Stranges appeared, in the late seventeenth century, and has yielded two variant surnames, namely Strange and Alloway. This branch produced several men with distinguished military and government careers.
John Alloway Strange (1727-1811) of Oak Hill, Fluvanna County, Virginia, is the earliest progenitor firmly identified, and he gave rise to colonel Gideon Alloway Strange I (1793-1838) of Dog Point, who begat the Confederate hero Colonel John Bowie Strange (1823-1862). The family also produced Glen Strange (1900-1973), the Western movie stunt actor best known for his role as the bartender in Gunsmoke. Robert Strange McNamara (1916) became United States Secretary of Defense (1961-1968).
