About the study
The Comerford one-name study looks at the names Comerford, Comberford, Quemerford, and their variants, including Commerford and Comerton.
The family names derive from two different placenames in England: Comberford, north of Tamworth and east of Lichfield in south-east Staffordshire; and Quemerford, on the edges of Calne in Wiltshire.
The two names became confused and conflated over the centuries, with a close relationship between the two families that became one of kinship.
The name Comerford is now primarily associated with the south-east of Ireland, and this study seeks to catalogue the different families with this name.
This study is a work in progress, and the pages on the blog/website associated with it are regularly updates.
