Surname: Streich (also Strech)

The Streich surname is part of the heritage of my paternal grandfather, John Samuel Krentz. His great-grandfather was:
  • Matthias Streich of Podanin, Posen, Prussia, a farmer. His wife was Anna Manthey. They were Catholic. Matthias and Anna were my third great-grandparents.
  • Anna Marianne Streich, born about 1804. She married Martin Krenz, a Protestant, at Podanin on 22 January 1823. They were married in the Catholic church, but banns were also published in the Evangelical church on 15 December 1822. Together they had six known children born in Podanin, two of whom are known to have died young. Martin and Anna Marianne were my great-great-grandparents.
There's no evidence that either of these couples emigrated.

The Streich names are highlighted in this
detail from the Evangelical marriage banns
Martin Krenz and Anna Mariane Strech.

Streichowna is a feminine version of Streich.
(From this record, incidentally, it appears
that Martin's
first name was Johann.)
