I agree with John, this may well be a variation on the Sapsford surname
which may derive from the old name for Sawbridgeworth. There were
Sapsfords in Hatfeld Heath & Hatfield Broad Oak, not far from
Sawbridgeworth also in White Roding, all during the 16th century.
The ERO's online catalogue SEAX has details of some of them.
