Longfoot Early Origins



The surname Longfoot was first found in Derbyshire at Longford, a village that dates back to 1197 when it was recorded as Langeford. As the name literally means "long ford," [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
there are other villages and parishes throughout Britain including Gloucestershire, Coventry and Shropshire. Longford Castle is located on the banks of the River Avon south of Salisbury, Wiltshire. This huge well-kept castle was originally owned by the Cervingtons and is currently the seat of William Pleydell-Bouverie, 9th Earl of Radnor, but is open to the public at selected times. Longford (Irish: an Longfort) is also a county town in County Longford, Ireland. In this latter case, County Longford is an Anglicization of an Irish Longfort, derived from "long" (meaning "ship") and "port" (meaning "port" or "dock".) County Longford was traditionally known as Annaly (Irish: Anghaile,) Tethbae or Teffia (Irish: Teabhtha) and formed the territory of the Farrell clan.
