Early Origins of the Marchingfield family


The surname Marchingfield was first found in Yorkshire at Markington, a village in the Harrogate district which dates back to at least the Domesday Book where it was listed as Merchinton. The place name may have been derived from the Old English word Merce + tun, combined to mean "farmstead of the Mercians." Alternatively, the place name could have meant "farmstead of the boundary-dwellers." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

This village is closely related to Markenfield Hall located nearby. It is generally believed that in 1150 that estate belonged to the Le Bret family who adopted the name de Markenfield. The present hall was built by John de Markenfield, an associate of Piers Gaveston and a servant of Edward II, whose reign lasted from 1307 to 1327.
