I'm a Butterfield from WA State, USA. We appear to be everywhere!
John Warren Butterfield founded the companies that became American Express and Wells Fargo in the 18th centuary..Also ran freight across from St Louis to San Fransisco.. in 1970 BUtterfield was a telephone exchange on Manhattan the code was BU for the classy parts of Manhattan..Famous film Butterfield8 staring Liz taylor, Also a department store in New York that was located in the shopping precinct under the twin towers .But Im from Yorkshire and a Butterfield, so the name could actually be American and not English..Who knows...
Wow I'm amazed at how many Butterfield's are out there I didn't think it was a very popular name. I live in Australia and there isn't many I know of here besides my immediate family.
This is really interesting, I'm a Butterfield too, first generation New Zealand one :) Dad always says we came from Yorkshire
Awesome i'm a butterfield from west yorkshire: looks like we've moved alot in the last 1000 years!
I never knew there were so many Butterfields. Ive never met any others but my family. That might be because i live in California. I thought it wasnt that common of a name. My friends call it a Dr. Suess last name but i always thought it was Irish or something seeing as how my family is Irish. But it could also be German. Im still stunned at how many Butterfields thdre are! I used to think we were alone on the west coast

Our last name is awesome! I live in ilkley in Yorkshire I reckon in some way were related.
jason my grandparents came from germany and their last name was butterfield as is mine so start your search in the ipswich area of queensland
Yes but as both "butter" and "field" are english words, not German, it's obviously an English name not a German one
Completely inaccurate and useless when it comes to what I want to find out. My great grandparents (whos last name was Butterfield) came from Germany, NOT england.
That is my last name too. All of my friends are jealous of my name.
My great Uncle was Frederick Butterfield of Harrogate, Yorkshire - he lived to be 110 years of age and , in those times was Britain's oldest man - Wikipidia even puts him down as the oldest man n the world for that time....! Any known relations of Fred Butterfield who would be interested in getting in touch ?
My grandfathers name is also Fredrick Butterfield
