Name Meaning

English (mainly Sussex and Kent): from Middle English punfold ‘pound’, Old English pundfald, applied as a topographic name for someone who lived by a pound for stray animals or a metonymic occupational name for someone in charge of such a pound; alternatively it may have been a habitational name from a minor place named with this word such as Poundfield in East Sussex.
