SWAFFORD Family History

This 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.

Hi Natashya I'm an Indian and I'm a Swafford. Don't know if we are related but my email Holla girl :)

Natashya Johnson

Hi! Allegedly, I am a relative of the Swafford name. I did not take my biological father's name due to whatever convoluted political conflicts occurring between 1980 and 1981 in New York. Instead I was documented with the family name of my grandmother's ancestry: Johnson. My father's name is Bobby Arthur Swafford and my mother's name is Angela Johnson. I have searched several databases and I hope this the final one (1) I need to search to finally meet the family I received my facial features from. Additionally, it would be nice to know the hereditary ailments I can expect in my future and whether I am in love with one of my brothers or cousins. By the way, it's rumored that Bobby is of Indian (tribal native american) descent.
