Gifford Genealogy & History

Gifford is an English surname with two major origins. It could come from the German name Gebhardt, from geb (meaning gift) and hard (brave, hardy, or strong). It might also be from the Old French Giffard, from the Old German giffel, meaning cheek, and used as a nickname for a chubby person. Gifford family history starts with Walter Gifard, noted in the Domesday Book for Cambridgeshire in 1086. Gifford genealogy lays claim to a few famous individuals, such as Arizona Representative and point-blank shooting survivor Gabrielle Giffords; TV host and singer Kathy Lee Gifford; and 18th- and 19th-century satirist, critic, and poet William Gifford.
