Early 17th century (in the sense 'roam as a vagrant'): probably from German strollen, strolchen, from Strolch 'vagabond', of unknown ultimate origin.

  • ‘You had a foolish itch to be an actor, / And may stroll where you please’, wrote Philip Massinger in his play The Picture ( 1629). If you strolled in the early 17th century you were wandering from place to place, especially as a vagrant, a use now obsolete, although the phrase ‘strolling player’ is still used. The sense of walking in a leisurely way only appeared towards the end of the 17th century. Stroll may come from a German word for ‘a vagabond’.
