Today Barnfield is a ward and area in Luton, England and home to Barnfield College.

Barnfeild Early Origins



The surname Barnfeild was first found in Shropshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.

As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Barnfeild include: Barnfield, Barnefield, Bornfield, Bernfield and many more.
