Standfield History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English-Alt, English


The name Standfield was brought to England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Standfield family lived in Yorkshire. Checking further we found the name was derived from the Old English "stan," meaning "stony," and "feld," meaning "field."

Early Origins of the Standfield family


The surname Standfield was first found in Lancashire at Worsthorn, a township, in the parochial chapelry and poor-law union of Burnley, parish of Whalley, Higherdivision of the hundred of Blackburn. "Worsthorn, or Wrdest, belonged to Henry de Wrdest in the reign of Stephen or Henry II.; and was granted in that of Edward II., by Henry de Lacy, to the Stansfield family." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

"Audenshaw Lodge [in Audenshaw, Lancashire], an agreeable seat, was for many generations in the possession of the Stanfields: there are several other ancient and some handsome and neat mansions in the division." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Standfield Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Nosce teipsum
Motto Translation: Know thyself.
