Fields Family HistoryThis interesting surname, of Anglo-Saxon origin, is a topographical name for someone who lived on land which had been cleared of forest, but not brought into cultivation, deriving from the Olde English pre 7th Century "feld" meaning "pasture", "open country". The surname dates back to the late 12th Century (see below). Further recordings include one Hugo de la Felde (1188) the Pipe Rolls of Bedfordshire, John del Feld (1190) Suffolk, the Kalendar of Abbot Samson of Bury St. Edmunds, and James atte Felde (1296), the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex.
