The PITFIELDS are a huge family with members all over the world.
Michael Pitfield and Hugh Pitfield have been researching the family's history for some 50 years. It originates in Dorset, England, and are all descended from Robert Pitfold 1516-1576. He had ten sons and one daughter, all of whom survived - hence the many descendants.
A later group developed in Lancashire descended from James Patefield, died 1780. The surname of some of his descendants morphed into Pitfield.
Full details of the ancestries are available in a downloadable (free) booklet of 166 pages. This contains hundreds of names (not just Pitfields) and is fully indexed. I could be a useful source for many Genealogist subscribers.
