The name Pulsford first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in the parish of Pulford, in Cheshire, a few miles from the City of Chester. The place-name is derived from the Old English words pul or pol, which mean pool, and ford, which is a place where a river may be crossed by wading. The place-name as a whole means "river crossing near a pool." The place-name was recorded as Pulford in the Domesday Book, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

compiled in 1086. The surname means "one who comes from Pulford," or alternatively "dweller by the river crossing where there is a pool."
