Name Meaning

Scottish and English (Northumbria): not, as its form would imply, a habitational name, even though there is a place in Shropshire so called, but a variant of Telfer , assimilated to the pattern of habitational names in -ford. The Shropshire place is a new town, named after the celebrated Scottish civil engineer Thomas Telford ( 1757–1834 ).
