Hello Upfield family cousins!
My lineage has been established by Ivy Upfield (now in Canada) who has done a lot of research into the Upfields
and has created a very useful resource. I am descended from Flora Upfield (my grandmother) who had several brothers from Heathfield area in Sussex.
Ivy Upfield has traced the family back to the late 1700s through the Harmer line, and the Upfield line back to (I think) William Upfield - though
I have my family tree details at homne and not at work. Someone else I was talking to suggested that Upfields were originally Upperfield, but during the time of Cromwell
the Upfield children were put in the care of Gypsies, who changed their name to protect them. This is unconfirmed. Delighted to know there are other Upfields out there -
and would love to be intouch.
Good wishes to all
