Redfield Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved.

Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Redfield or a variant listed above:
