Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place in Devon recorded in 1291 as Elleford ‘elder tree (Old English ellen) ford’; tūn ‘village’ is a later addition. Alternatively, the surname may have be from Yelverton in Norfolk, which is probably from the personal name Geldfriþ + Old English tūn ‘village’, ‘settlement’.
