The name Ufarte is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family lived in either of the settlements called Ufford in the counties of Northamptonshire and Suffolk. The surname Ufarte belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Ufarte Early Origins



The surname Ufarte was first found in Suffolk at Ufford, a parish, in the union of Woodbridge, hundred of Wilford. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Ufford is also a civil parish in the city of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. Both parishes are ancient. The Cambridgeshire parish dates back to Saxon times when it was first listed as Uffawyrtha in 948. The Suffolk parish dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Uffeworda.

Both essentially mean "enclosure of a man called Uffa," from the Old English personal name + "worth." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
"Of this family, which afterwards arrived to great honour, Robert, a younger son of John de Peyton, of Peyton in the county of Suffolk, assumed his surname from the lordship of Ufford, in that shire, became Robert de Ufford. His son was summoned to Parliament as a Baron in 1308, and his grandson, also a Robert de Ufford, was created Earl of Suffolk. " [4]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 may confirm this claim as Robert de Ufford was listed in Suffolk at that time. [5]CITATION[CLOSE]

Ufarte Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Ufarte family name include Ufford, Ufforde and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Ufarte surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Isabel Ufford, who settled in Boston in 1632; along with John, Thomas; John Ufford settled in Barbados in 1680.
