Meaning & History

Habitational name from a place in West Yorkshire, probably named with the genitive case of the Old English personal name STAN "stone" and Old English feld "pasture, open country". It may also be a topographic name from Middle English stanesfeld "open country of the (standing) stone".

Stansfield is the name of two villages in England, one in Yorkshire and one in Suffolk. The distribution of the surname suggests that the village in Yorkshire is the source of the surname.
