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. Redfield has been recorded under many different variations, including Redferne, Redfern, Reedfern, Readfern, Reddfern, Redfearn, Redfinn, Redfyne and many more.

First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Redfern near Rochdale, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.
