This interesting name, with spellings Compfort, Compford, Comerford, Comford and Comport, derives from the Medieval English "Cumfort", (Old French "Cunfort" or "Confort"), meaning encouragement, aid, or support, and was originally given as a personal nickname to one who was a source of strength and support. The surname was first recorded in the latter part of the 13th Century, (see below). One, Richard Cumfort appears in "The Hundred Rolls of Oxfordshire", dated 1273, and a Richard Counfort in the 1375 "Calendar of Pleas for London". The variant spellings Compfort, Comford and Compford recorded in Church registers of Kent and London from the mid 16th Century have given rise to the theory that, in some instances, the name may be locational from a now lost place in Kent, possibly called Compford from the Old English "camp", a field, plus "ford", ford...

    Hi Everyone! There is a beautiful watchtower castle in Cuffesgrange, Co. Kilkenny Ireland. It was the ancestral home to the Comerford family back in 1588. We are planning to host an annual gathering of the Comerford's descendants. Follow us on instagram or Facebook for details. We aim to uncover as much history and heritage about the property to share with Comerford's globally! There are a lot of Comerford's following the page, you never know, you could find a distant relative! :)
