Classification: Query
Early Stalfords maybe more difficult to find. My quick searches suggest it was a very rare name in Ireland, before 1863. By 1911 there are 27 entries for Stalford in the irish census. Some are living near Taughblane alsospelt Toughblane in the civil parish of Hillsborough. Its very close to the Maze area See Ros Davies below for a townland map and her church records., . I mention that if you start going back before 1843 as civil records weren’t around and it is church records that will interest you.

Alexander STALFORD junior & senior Hillsborough of Toughblane townland, charity donation 1836 V12 p106 OSM One or other is probably father of Elizabeth below
Thomas STALFORD . Blaris of Middle Maze , charity donation in 1836
{There is also a William Stalford, father of Samuel and Susanna, Samual probably the father of Samantha b 1857.}
{There is also a Joseph Stalford}
All four are listed in 1863 as living in Taughblane.see http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/index.xml This site may be of extra importance as the old homesteads may be marked on a Griffith map!.
there are more entries in Ros davies which I have removed for Rootsweb policy

The earliest Stalford I could find in street directories was 1908 which seems strange eg
