STAFFORD Family History

This is an English locational surname of great antiquity and early nobility. It is considered that most nameholders do derive from the county town of Staffordshire recorded as "Stadford" in the Domesday Book of 1086.

    Stephen Stafford

    Stephen P. Stafford from the State of Victoria, Australia. My Irish ancestors were John Stafford and Mary Stafford (nee Carey) who came from Ballyvaloon, in the Parish of Aghada, County of Cork before migrating to Australia in 1838 and eventually settling in the Warrnambool area in the western district of Victoria.
