Families covered: Dukinfield of Dukinfield (Dokenfeild)

This family's name is spelled variously, including Duckinfield, Dokinfield, Dukenfield and Dockenfield, but the town in Cheshire from which the family took its name, which may have originally been spelled Dokenfeild, is now spelled Dukinfield. Somewhat arbitrarily, we change from Dokenfeild to Dukinfield around the 15th century.
