Early-attested site in the Parish of West Putford
- Choleputteford 1464 IpmR
- Putford Jelyan al. Cholly Putford 1556 Deed
- Churiputteford 1242 Fees787
The name is probably identical with the earlier manor of Churiputteford 1242 Fees 787, Churc Potford 1303, Churche Poteford 1346 FA with later common confusion of r and l . If so, the first element may be cyric , 'barrow,' as the farm is not near the parish church.
