The associated coat of arms for this name are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. Registerd at Kilsby, County Northampton and Tuddington, Middlesex. Granted in 1663. This ancient surname English of GARFIELD was a habitation name from an unidentified place, probably from a field name referring to a triangular area left at the corner of an open field after rectangular furlongs had been laid out. Surnames can be divided into four categories; place names, occupation names, nicknames and patronymics. PLACE NAMES are the largest group and covers all those names first applied to people who lived in or nearby to a particular place. For example, Grove, Wood, Field, Meadow, and Street are obvious. Occasionally names were taken from obscure villages or hamlets which no longer exist and this can make research confusing. OCCUPATION NAMES cover nearly all trades which existed in the Middle Ages. These are numerous. It does not necessarily follow that such names as King, Duke, Earl and so on mean your ancestors were of noble blood. It is much more likely that such named people worked for the person referred to. NICKNAMES. This is a smaller group but in many ways more interesting. They usually originated as a by-name for someone by describing their appearance, personal disposition or character but which became handed down through the ages and did not apply to their descendants. For instance the name Black would denote a dark man, Little, someone small (or even somewhat ambiguously) someone tall. PATRONYMICS. This group covers all names which derive immediately from the owner's father. Many christian names which are also surnames have, over the years, lost the possessive form but the origin is still the same. Examples of this could be names such as Peter,Thomas, Henry - all names which became both christian and surnames over the years. Early records of the name mention Robert de GARFIELD, who was recorded in the year 1273 in County York, and Johannes de GARFIELD, of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. A notable member of the name was James Abraham GARFIELD (1831-81) 20th president of the United States, born in Orange. At ten he already added to his widowed mother's income by farm work. A graduate of Williams College, he taught in school, served as a lay preacher, became a lawyer and was elected to the state senate in 1859.
