POSSIBLE CONFUSIONS

Atford, Wiltshire and Atworth, Wiltshire are the same place!

For clarity reasons, the word 'Atworth ' is prefered.

The following information is taken from the home page of the Atworth Village Website http://www.atworth.org.uk/

The famous mapmaker and cartographer John Speed (1552 - 1629) shows Atworth on his maps of Wiltshire, but it is named as "Atford". Later, in 1773, the mapmakers Andrews and Dury, published a map of Wiltshire in which Atworth appeared as both "Atford" and as "Attworth".

The "At" component of the name has been associated with the word "oat", which may imply a role in the service of grain markets of the time.

When or where there may have been a ford in the village seems not be known at present.

By the time the Ordnance Survey produced its first maps in the early 19th century, the village was almost exclusively referred to as "Atworth".
