Name Meaning

English: habitational name from the city in South Yorkshire, so called from the river name Sheaf (from Old English scēað ‘boundary’) + Old English feld ‘pasture’, ‘open country’. There are also minor places of the same name in Sussex (from Old English scēap, scīp ‘sheep’ + feld) and Berkshire (from Old English scēo ‘shelter’, ‘shed’ + feld), which may have contributed to the surname.
