Stratton is a mostly residential eastern suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located within the City of Swan. Formerly known as Wexcombe, the name Stratton was chosen in 1989 to honour John Peter Stratton, a farmer, businessman and local landowner who was president of the Western Australian Trotting Association from 1930 until 1966.[2]
