The lineage of the name Salford begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived at the estate of Salford which had three early locations in England including Lancashire, Oxford and Bedfordshire.

Salford Early Origins



The surname Salford was first found in Bedfordshire in the parish of Salford. "This place, which lies on the borders of Buckinghamshire, was formerly the property of a family who took their name from it, and was afterwards possessed by the Drakelows, and the Charnocks, from whom it passed by marriage to the Herveys."

Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Salford were among those contributors:
