Thread Name: tales of Pat Dunford
Subject: RE: tales of PAT DUNFORD
Hildebrand says Pat was related to Uncle Eke Dunford. That's all he knows though. Pat told him once. You might find more through Uncle Eke, Liz. He's quite well known it seems.
Hildebrand (wearing his linguist hat) says that the name is maybe a mix of Dun (Gaelic for hill fort) and ford (Anglo-Saxon). That is uless his "Dunford" was made from a totally different name sometime in the past. Joy
