- Kulver Elizabeth, ch.11.11.1638. Stepney, London.

There are a number of Kilford's in the South West of England, however in the 1600's the name appeared in the Shropshire records. Maybe this name was Kilvert initially and was mispelled and travelled to the South West of England as Kilford. As can be seen above, other names viz:- Kylverde, Kilverd, Kelverth were in the South West.

There is a family in Wylye, Wiltshire that could be Kilvert or Kilford. There appears to be more "Kilvert" christenings, than "Kilford", however, there was a strong Kilvert influence in the church in Wiltshire and Somerset at the time and the vicar could have written the wrong name down as most of the people of the time were illiterate.
