Value: Recorded in many spellings including Hanaford, Hannaford, Handford, Handforth, Hainforth, Hainford, Hanford, Hanniford, Hanniforth, Haynesford, and no doubt others, this is an English surname. It is locational and originates either from the village of Hanaford in Devon, or Handforth in the county of Cheshire, or from a similar place called Handford, but known locally as Hanford, in Staffordshire, or Haynford near the city of Norwich, also known as Hainford. The meaning of the name in all cases is probably 'Hana's Ford', with Hana being an early baptismal name. However 'hana' also described the cock bird, so it is possible that the place names refer to fords where for some reason they kept cock birds, perhaps fighting cocks. The surname is first recorded in the 14th century, see below, and other early examples include Richard de Honford, in the Pipe Rolls of Cheshire, in 1398, and Richard Handforth of Godley, Cheshire in 1545. Later examples include Richard Hanford of Warwick in 1468, and John Handford of Devon, in 1642. The first known recording is probably that of Simon de Hanford, in the Pipe Rolls of the county of Somerset in the year 1230. This was in the reign of King Henry 111 of England, known by the nickname of 'The Frenchman', 1216 - 1272.


Fathers need not fathers be.
All one needs to do is choose
To love for life, and that embrace,
Held long and hard, bestows the grace
Each craves. For all in time must lose,
Restored alone by memory.
So now it is with you and me.
