Origins of surname

This surname of Anglo-Saxon origin is one of the earliest topographical surnames still in existence. The name derives from the old English ford meaning a shallow place in a river where men and animals could wade across. The name was given to someone who lived near a ford.

Early records

The name Ford is first found in Jersey baptism records at the end of the 17th century, but it was another 100 years before registrations are found from which a descendancy can be traced.
