Name Meaning

English: from Middle English stan ‘stone, rock’ (Old English stān) + feld ‘open country’. The surname may be topographic, for someone who lived on or by a stony field, or habitational, from a place so named, such as Stanfield (Staffordshire, Norfolk). This surname is also common in County Down, Ireland, where it appears to have been established since the 19th century.
