CANADIAN FIFIELDS


Research on the Canadian Fifields is in process. First reports come from the area of Trinity in Newfoundland and speak of three brothers. One settled in Trinity Bay, one in Bonavista Bay and one in Corner Brook in Western Newfoundland.

Reportedly, some of the Fifields were rogues and renegades from England, fled from there to Northern Ireland, and from there dispersed to different parts of the world including Canada and Australia. This may be apocryphal.

I have received one line of Fifield descent from Bonavista and a John Fifield who married Mary Woods on 13 October, 1829. Another line comes from Thomas Fyfield (1741-1814) and is given below. Most of the research on this line has been provided by Bonnie Hickery, Vera Short, and Gordon Lane. Some of the conclusions are tentative.

Fifields who came to Canada from the U.S. tended to settle in Ontario, and we know of four families who did so. Some descendants of an Andrew Fifield from Vermont settled just over the border in the Bolton, PQ area, where most of their records are as "Phifield". You can find them in the U.S. section. Noah Fifield from New England settled for a time in Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia in the 1820's. He eventually returned to the U.S.
