Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of the various places so named, for example in Devon, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, and Hereford and Worcester. Most are named from Old English rēad ‘red’ + ford ‘ford’, but it is possible that in some cases the first element may be a derivative of Old English rīdan ‘to ride’, with the meaning ‘ford that can be crossed on horseback’.
