When Sutherland Mayfield was born about 1786, in Shelby, Kentucky, United States, his father, Michajah Mayfield Sr., was 40 and his mother, Ann Catesby, was 42. He married Amelia Story on 30 November 1824, in Upper Canada, British Colonial America. They were the parents of at least 3 sons and 4 daughters. He registered for military service in 1812. He died on 30 August 1862, in Daviess, Kentucky, United States, at the age of 77.
English: habitational name from a place so named in Staffordshire. The placename derives from Old English mæthel ‘speech, assembly, meeting place’ + feld ‘open country’. Though it is possible that the surname could also be a habitational name from Mayfield in Sussex, this is unlikely due to the geographical distribution of early bearers.
