Name Meaning

English:habitational name from one or more of several places so named, such as Walford (Herefordshire), Walford in Leintwardine (also Herefordshire), Walford in Baschurch (Shropshire), and possibly Walford Hall in Hampton in Arden (Warwickshire), though this last may be a manorial placename deriving from the surname. The Herefordshire placenames probably derive from Old English walh ‘foreigner, Welshman’ (genitive plural wala) + ford ‘ford’. The Shropshire placename derives from Old English wella ‘well, spring, stream’ + ford. If it does not derive from the surname, the Warwickshire placename probably has the same etymology as the Herefordshire placenames.perhaps occasionally a habitational name from Walford in Wimborne Minster (Dorset). The placename probably derives from Old English walt ‘unsteady’ + ford ‘ford’.
