Richard L'Estrange or Le Strange was an English Member of Parliament (MP). The son of Sir Thomas Le Strange, he probably secured election through his brother Sir Nicholas L'Estrange, who was Chamberlain to the Duke of Norfolk: he represented Horsham in the Parliament of 1559 and King's Lynn in that of 1563,[1] both boroughs where the Duke was regularly able to nominate one of the two MPs.
