The surname Fieldars is derived from the ancient Saxon word "fidulaere" meaning "fiddle player." However, another reference claims the name was derived from the expression " atte felde" which meant "one who lives in the fields" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The surname Fieldars was first found in Sussex where the first recordings of the name indicate that Geoffrey le Felder held estates in the southern county of Sussex, listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in 1327. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Fieldars are characterized by many spelling variations. 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 Fieldars include: Fielder, Fielders, Fieldars, Fieldar and others.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Fieldars or a variant listed above: John Fielder who purchased land in Annapolis, Maryland, in 1726. Passenger records show Sarah Fielder made the crossing in the same year. Stephen Fielder settled in the colonies in 1754 and Thomas Fielder joined him ten years later..
