WILFORD Family History

This interesting surname is of English locational origin either from Wilford in Nottinghamshire, or from Wilford near Woodbridge, Suffolk. The former place was first recorded as Wilesford in the Domesday Book of 1086 and as Wileford in "Manuscripts of Lord Middleton at Wollaton Hall", dated circa 1190, and the latter appeared as Wileforde in the Domesday Book. Both places were so called from the Old English pre 7th Century "wilig", willow plus "ford", a ford; hence, "Willow Ford". Early recordings of the surname include: Henry de Wylleford and Thomas de Wilford, (Nottinghamshire, 1273 and 1292 respectively).
