Caulfield Family History

This apparently English surname has a very confusing origin. There does not seem ever to have been a place called 'Caulfield', and the original recording of the name is as 'Calfehill'. To add to the confusion we have been unable to find such a place either, the nearest being 'Calfhalle' a lost village in Cheshire but recorded there in 1315. The surname when found in Ireland, can either be a very unusual variant spelling of the Irish MacCawell, or it may have English origins, from the English 'planter' family first recorded there in 1607.
