Name Meaning

English (Dorset): habitational name from an unidentified place, possibly Ansford in Somerset, which is recorded in Domesday Book as Almundesford, from the genitive case of the Old English personal name Ealhmund (composed of the elements ealh ‘temple’ + mund ‘protection’) + Old English ford ‘ford’.
