SWAFFORD Family HistoryThis interesting and unusual surname is of English origin, and is locational from a place called Swatfield Bridge in Willesborough, in Kent. The placename is of unknown origin, but the second element could be from the Old English pre 7th Century "feld", pasture, open country. Locational surnames were developed when former inhabitants of a place moved to another area, usually to seek work, and were best identified by the name of their birthplace. The placename was first recorded as "Swatford" in 1254.
