Delafield Name Meaning

English: topographic name, apparently from Anglo-Norman French de la ‘from the’ + Middle English feld ‘open country used for pasture or tillage’. Sometimes, however, -field in a Norman name represents the French word ville ‘town’, so that this name may in fact be from French Delaville, a topographic name for someone who lived in a town.
