I am researching the Hutchfield family from Somerset, England. The earliest reference I've discovered is Andrew Hutchfield who died 29th March 1806, but I don't know much about him other than that.
The Hutchfield surname is rather rare and most living dependants can be traced to one of three family groups. These family groups can be roughly located in County Durham, North Wales and Somerset.
The big question is, what is the link and what is the story behind the name.
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
