One, Richard Cumfort appears in "The Hundred Rolls of Oxfordshire", dated 1273, and a Richard Counfort in the 1375 "Calendar of Pleas for London". The variant spellings Compfort, Comford and Compford recorded in Church registers of Kent and London from the mid 16th Century have given rise to the theory that, in some instances, the name may be locational from a now lost place in Kent, possibly called Compford from the Old English "camp", a field, plus "ford", ford...
