Stanford Genealogy & History

Stanford stems from the pre-seventh-century Old English stan (stone) + ford (a place where you could cross a river), so this is a locational name for a rocky crossing place. Some of the different spellings are Standford, Stanniford, Stamforth, and Staynfor. Thomas Stanford immigrated to Concord, Massachusetts, about 1644. Stanford family history has the first known recording of the name as Adam De Stanford in the Hundred Rolls of Oxfordshire in 1273. Noteworthy Stanford genealogy members are Stanford Univerity founder Leland Stanford; restaurateur, madam, and Sausalito, California, Mayor Sally Stanford; and California State University pan-African studies Professor Karin Stanford.
