  • FIELD
  • This name is a very ancient one, and can be traced back to the conquest of England by William the Norman. Probably not a dozen families in England can prove so great an antiquity. The name is one of those derived from locality. Burke states that this family was originally in Alsace (then part of French now of German territory), seated at the Chateau de la Feld (of the field), near Colmar (German, Kolmar), from the darkest of the middle ages. Hubertus de la Feld was the first of the line that emigrated to England, and in 1069 was enrolled as the owner of lands by gift of the Conqueror, as compensation for military service, in the county of Lancaster. He was one of the Counts de la Feld, of Colmar. In the fourteenth century, because of the wars with France, the French prefixes were dropped, and the name thereafter written Field.
  • (I) Roger del Feld, born in Sowerby, England, about 1240, was a descendant of Sir Hubertus, and head of the family which settled in Lancashire and Kent counties.
  • (II) Thomas, son of Roger, was born about 1278, in Sowerby, and was a jeweler there in 1307.
  • (III) John, son of Thomas, was born in 1300, in Sowerby, and had land there in 1336.
  • (IV) Thomas (2), son of John, was born in 1330, in Sowerby, and was constable there in 1365, and greave in 1370, and also filled other public offices. His wife's name was Annabelle.
  • (V) Thomas (3), son of Thomas (2) and Annabelle Feld, was born in 1360, and willed lands to his wife, Isabel, in the territory of Bradford. He died in 1429, at his residence in Bradford.
  • (VI) William, son of Thomas (3) and Isabel Feld, was born probably, in Bradford, and died in April, 1480, at Bradford. His wife, Katherine, was administratrix of his estate.
  • (VII) William (2), son of William (1) and Katherine Feld, was born in Bradford and lived in East Ardsley.
  • (VIII) Richard Felde, son of William (2) Feld, was born, probably in East Ardsley, where he was a husbandman, and died
