MAYFIELD Family HistoryThis is a medieval English locational surname. It probably originates from either the village of Mayfield in the county of Staffordshire, first recorded in the famous Domesday Book of 1086 as Medevelde, and later in 1180 as Matherfelde, or from the village of Mayfield in Sussex first recorded as Magefeud in 1199. In both cases the meaning is probably the same, the derivation being from the pre 7th Century Olde English word "moeddre" meaning madder, a plant whose root was used for making a red or purple dye, although it is possible that the Sussex village has a slightly different origin.
