The Playfurth surname is a habitation name derived from a place name in Suffolk. The place name in turn comes from the Old English word "plega," meaning "sport" and "ford," referring to a ford in a river. Perhaps the place was originally a site of sporting contests; however any evidence of this has been lost over time.
