Name Meaning

English: habitational name, probably from Lundsford in East Sussex, so named from an Old English personal name Lundrǣd + Old English ford ‘ford’, or possibly from Lunsford in Kent, although this was earlier called Lullesworthe (from the Old English personal name Lull + worð ‘enclosure’); it is not certain whether the development to Lunsford took place early enough to have produced the surname.
