Longfield Name Meaning
English: topographic name for someone who lived by an extensive (Middle English long ‘long’) piece of open country or pastureland (feld(e)). There is a place so named in Kent (from Old English lang + feld), recorded from the 10th century, and there are several in West Yorkshire, where the surname is common. Two places now called Longville in Shropshire also have this origin.
