    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of various places called Hatfield (East Yorkshire, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex), or Heathfield (Sussex, Somerset), though not all of these have given rise to hereditary surnames. The placenames derive from Old English hǣth ‘heath, heather’ + feld ‘open country’.
