Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place named in Old English with hālig ‘holy’ + Old English feld ‘open country’. This may be Holyfield in Essex (which belonged to Waltham Abbey), but the present-day distribution of the name (mainly in the Midlands and Wales) suggests that another source may be involved.
