Name Meaning

Scottish and northern English: habitational name from a place in the Scottish Borders near Roxburgh, probably named with an early British river name of unknown etymology + Old English ford ‘ford’. There is another place of the same name in North Yorkshire, named with hryðer ‘cattle’ + Old English ford ‘ford’, but this does not seem to have contributed to the surname.
