LEDFORD Family History

This is an English surname. Recorded as Ledford, Ludford and Lodford, and possibly having an overlap with Lydford, a Somerset and Devonshire surname, it is locational from either of two places called Ludford in the counties of Shropshire and Lincoln, where in the latter county it is divided into Magna Ludford and Parva Ludford. In all cases the prefix is a reference to a river, and appears to originate from the Ancient British (pre Roman) word "hlude" meaning loud or perhaps fast flowing, with "forda", a shallow river crossing.
