Origin of surname
The derivation of this name is simple. Fielding was an extension of 'field' and referred to a dweller on clear land or in open country.
The first appearance of the family in Jersey was towards the end of the 18th century. Charles Fielding married Anne Heller in St Mary on 5 August 1772. Anne died in 1788 and there is no record of their having children, and it is the marriage of soldier Jean Fielding to Jeanne Payn on 10 August 1781 in St Saviour which was to start the descendancy shown in both trees below.
