The surname Littlefield was first found in Staffordshire at Lichfield, a city and county of itself, and the head of a union. "This place, called by Bede Licidfeld, and by Ingulphus and Henry of Huntingdon Lichfeld, both implying "the field of the dead," is supposed to have derived its name from the martyrdom of more than 1000 Christians, who are said to have been massacred here in the reign of the Emperor Diocletian."

Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Lichfield, Litchfield, Lichford and others.
