Stafford Genealogy & History

Stafford is a noble surname, derived from Old English "staef" plus "forda", meaning "landing place by the shallow crossing". English Stafford family history began in Normandy, where Ralph de Toeni carried King William the Conqueror's standard, and his brother Robert was the first to bear the surname Stafford. Robert Stafford built a castle in Staffordshire, and his descendants had 80 manors in thirteen counties in the Midlands. Stafford genealogy includes the Dukes of Buckingham, two beheaded Staffords (Devon earl Humphrey Stafford by Edward IV and Thomas Stafford by "Bloody Mary") and William Stafford, one of the first English settlers in America, found in "Elizabeth Cittee" Virginia in 1622.
