Recorded in a number of spellings including Sommerfeld and Somerfeld in Germany, and Somerfield, Sommerfield and the more usual Summerfield in England, this is almost certainly a surname of pre 7th century Germanic & Anglo-Saxon origins. It was residential and described a person who lived either at one of the several places in Germany called Sommerfeld or in England from Somerfield in the West Riding of Yorkshire, or from residence at a field or area of land used only for summer grazing, presumably in the highland and uplands.
