Origins of surname

This surname comes from names of places in Gloucestershire, Devon, Hereford and West Yorkshire, originally spelt either 'Clifort' or 'Cliford'. The name means 'the ford at the cliff, or steep bank'.

Early records

John Clifford married Elizabeth de la Haye in St Brelade in 1740 and started the Jersey family. There are 12 Clifford households in Jersey in 2016, but it is not known which, if any, can trace their ancestry back to John and Elizabeth. We have also been unable to discover where John came from.
