Name Meaning

English and Irish: habitational name, probably from Field, in Leigh, Staffordshire. The placename derives from Old English feld ‘flat open country’. In the late 12th century one of Henry II's warrior knights took the surname to Ireland, where it often took the semi-Norman French form de la Feld. From the 15th century onward it was increasingly reduced to Field and gave its name to Fieldstown, the family's chief seat near Dublin. A branch of the Anglo-Irish family that migrated back to England in the 14th century retained the Normanized form as Delafield .English: topographic name for someone who lived by an arable field or an area of open country (Middle English feld).Irish: Anglicized form of Feeley , through similarity of sound, and of Maghery by translation (chiefly in Armagh), from Gaelic An Mhachaire ‘of the field’.
