Sir, I have only just now noticed your post from way back (1998) I have just recently started my family history and have traced it back to one Edward Allford, from Devon, born 1805. I am a descendant of him. In the 1841 English census, Edward has a son, John, age 3mths. I was wondering if you had any information that might help me.I have a tree right up to todays living Hallfords. The name changed when it came to Scotland. Kindest Regards, Richard Hallford.
