The surname Whiteford, also seen as Whitefoord and Whitford, is of territorial origin, taken from the Whitefoord lands on the Cart river roughly three miles north of Paisley in Renfrewshire.
According to Crawfurd’s book, History of Renfrewshire, Alexander Stewart, 4th High Steward of Scotland, granted the first Whitefoord of that Ilk lands for his service at the 1263 Battle of Largs, however this is up for some debate.
