Names, Geographical

There are two version of how the parish got its name:

  1. Tradition has it that the Saxons fought the invading Danes here to protect their land, leaving a blood-soaked field near the village. Thus the "stain" and "field" of the parish name.

  2. The name Stainfield is more likely from the Old Scandanavian Steinn+thviet, or "Stony clearning". In the 1086 Domesday Book, the village is given as Stentvith.
