Stansfield Family History
Stansfield Name Meaning
English (Lancashire and Yorkshire): habitational name from Stansfield (Yorkshire) and Stansfield in Rochdale (Lancashire). The placenames may derive from an Old English personal name Stān (genitive Stānes) + Old English feld ‘open country’. However there is little evidence to support the suggestion that such a personal name may have existed and the initial element may be Old English stānes genitive of stān ‘stone rock’.
