FIELD Family History

This ancient of pre 7th century German origins and Anglo-Saxon origins, is recorded in over seventy spellings. These range from Feild, Feld, and Field, to Delafield, Veld, Van den Velde, Feldmann, and the various ornamental compounds such as Feldblum or Fieldstone. However spelt, the name is topographical for someone who lived or worked on land which had been cleared of forest, but not brought into arable cultivation. The derivation is from "feld", translating as pasture or open country, almost the opposite of the 20th century meaning..

My name is Madison Field. I am not sure where the surname Field comes from, but I do know that my father has ancestors from the McLeods, and I have ancestry from the McCrorys and the Welches on my mum's side. I'm looking for McLeod, McCrory, or Welch families living in Ireland, as I live in America. I'd love to chat, as I'm very interested in my Irish ancestry; it makes up a majority of my ancestry as a whole. Thanks.
