BRUMFIELD Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name from any of the places called "Bromfield" in Cumberland and Shropshire, or "Broomfield" in Essex, Kent and Somerset. Bromfield in Cumberland is recorded as "Brumfeld" in 1145, and that in Shropshire as "Brunfelde" in the Domesday Book of 1086. The places called Broomfield in Essex, Kent and Somerset appear in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Brumfelda", "Brumfeld" and "Brunfelle", respectively. All of these places share the same meaning and derivation, which is "(place at) the broom-covered open land", derived from the Olde English pre 7th Century "brom" meaning broom or gorse, with "feld" open country, land free from wood.
