Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of the various places in England so called, which do not all share the same etymology. The county seat of Staffordshire (which is probably the main source of the surname) is named from Old English stæð ‘landing place’ + ford ‘ford’. Examples in Devon seem to have as their first element Old English stān ‘stone’, and one in Sussex is probably named with Old English stēor ‘steer’, ‘bullock’.
