Early Origins of the Morefield family


The surname Morefield was first found in Cumberland where the family name was first referenced in the year 1154 when Peter Morville was recorded with estates. They were originally from Morville, arr Valognes in the canton of Briquebec in Normandy. Another early record of the family was found in the royal burgh of Lauder in Berwickshire. This parish was "granted in the early part of the 12th century, by David I., to Hugh de Moreville, constable of Scotland. De Moreville gave the lands of Thirlstane, in the parish, to one of his kinsmen, whose grand-daughter conveyed them by marriage to Sir Richard Maitland, ancestor of the present Earl of Lauderdale, now the principal proprietor of the parish."
