This family traces its Americn ancestry from Thomas Safford
Thomas Safford, the immigrant, to Ipswich, Massachusetts Colony, through a long line prominent in the formation and advancement of the growth of the American colonies, and on the record of each the verdict : "He did what he could for the betterment of the human kind with which he was brought in contact" is true and just. From the English ancestral records we find that the surname occurs frequently in the early part of the thirteenth century and appears to be of Saxon derivation. The name appears in the inscription engraved on the seal of an ancient town on the English coast, and reads as follows : "Sigillum Burgensium de Saffordia." It also appears among the lists of immigrants who came from England to the Colony of Virginia between 1613 and 1623.
