Redford Family History

This interesting surname is of English locational origin from any of the various places called Radford, for example in Devon, Nottingham, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. In most cases the placename derives from the Old English pre 7th Century "read" meaning red plus "ford" a ford, (some of the places state that the soil is red in or near the ford). However, it is also possible that in some cases the first element may be the Old English "rad" riding, with the meaning of a ford that can be crossed by horseback.
