The roots of the name Redfurd are found among the Strathclyde-Briton people of the ancient Scottish/English Borderlands. Redfurd was originally found in Midlothian. However, the Redfurd family name comes from any of several place names in England called Redford, from Old English re-ad meaning "red" and ford, meaning "a place where a river can be crossed."

Redfurd Early Origins
