I am a descendent of the Norfolk Playfords, my grandfather came from Heacham and the Churchyard and parish records record the family connection. I think their ancestors came from Walsingham. Matthew Playford, who was the grandson of Thomas Playford married a woman from Walsingham and became vicar of Stanmore, near London, but he died young and the family returned to Norfolk. The name has great antiquity, Playfords are recorded in the rolls of Oxford and Cambridge graduates in the 13th Century and a coat of arms was granted early. This is about all I can pass on from my branch.
