I have some information on the Playfords of England, as my mother-in-law was a Playford. Her father's name was also named Arthur. I have a photograph of a monument in Cambridge dated 1609 of a "Plaifera" which was restored by "Norfolk Playfords". Apparently the Playfair family also descends from "Plaifera". In another message I posted, I mentioned a paperback Victorian Book by Walter Rye, NORFOLK FAMILIES, 1913, which lists Norfolk gentry and the "rowing" Playfords. A cousin of my mother-in-law can trace his line back to Nicholas of Northrepps, before 1600. She mentions an illustrated "family record type of book" about the Northrepps and Overstrand areas of Norfolk. It mentions a farmer Playford of Overstrand who by flouring a black horse so that it looked grey escaped imprisonment!
