Families covered: Hatfield of Hatfield Hall, Hatfield of Willoughby

We title the page using the old spelling of "Hatfeild" rather than the more modern version "Hatfield" even though Hunter uses "Hatfield" throughout his work on this family and even though cross-references from elsewhere in the database use "Hatfield". This is because it appears that the modern descendants of the family still use "Hatfeild", as shown on page Hatfeild2. Hunter starts with 2 brothers whom we show as sons of ...

  The dates given for Sir Stephen and his son William look suspicious, suggesting that there could be a generation or two missing around here, but they are not impossible. Sir Stephen, who "attended Ed. I in his Scotch wars" may have been young at that time and have been old when he had his son William who was old when he made his will in 1402. Similarly, Stephen's brother Bishop Thomas may have been old when he died in 1381. Visitation starts with Steven, father of William.
