    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name principally from Stafford (Staffordshire), but occasionally from other places with similar names, such as Stafford House in Ifield (Sussex), possibly East and West Stowford in East Down (Devon), and three minor places in Devon called Stafford, in Dolton, Broadhembury, and Colyton parishes. The places are all named with Old English ford ‘ford’ as the final element, but have different initial elements. The Staffordshire placename has Old English stæth ‘river bank, shore’; Stafford in Colyton (Devon) has Old English stān ‘stone, rock’; the Sussex placename has Old English stēor ‘steer, bullock’; East and West Stowford (Devon) have Old English stæf ‘staff, stave, rod’; Stafford in Dolton and Stafford in Broadhembury (Devon) may have Old English stæth, stān, or stæf.
