Name Meaning


habitational name from Hansford Barton in Ashreigny, or from one of two other places called Hansford or Handsford in Chawleigh and Bondleigh (all Devon). The origins of these placenames are uncertain; some may be derived from the surname, and it is not clear which early forms belong to which place. The form Hamtoneford, recorded in 1205, suggests Old English hām-tūn ‘home farm’ (from hām ‘homestead’ + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’) + ford ‘ford’, though hām-tūn is very rare in Devon. Another possibility is Old English hēan, dative form of hēah ‘high’, + tūn + ford.

variant of Hanford with an intrusive -s-.
