HALFORD Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of English locational pre 7th century origin. Recorded in the spellings of Halford, Hallford, Hallfford, and Halliford, it derives from the various villages so called, although the meanings vary in different parts of the country. The villages called Halford in Devonshire and Warwickshire, derive from the old English "halh" meaning a recess or hollow in the ground plus "forda", a shallow river crossing. Halford in Shropshire derives from "hafocere", an early word for a merchant, which suggests that merchants gathered at this place and possibly established a market.
