Winfield Family History

Winfield Name Meaning
English: habitational name from any of various places now called Wingfield. North and South Wingfield in Derbyshire are evidently named with Old English wynn ‘meadow’, ‘pasture’ + feld ‘pasture’, ‘open country’. A place of this name in Bedfordshire may have as it first element a topographical term or bird name wince (see Winch). One in Suffolk was probably either the ‘field of the people of Wiga’ (a short form of any of various compound names formed with wig ‘war’), or else derives its first element from Old English weoh ‘(pre-Christian) temple’.
