The first recorded member was the following Walter who came to England at the time of the Conquest. It is thought likely that he came from the area of Longueville-la-Gifart (now Longueville-sur-Scie) in Upper Normandy. The family name was spelt variously over the centuries (including Lungvile & Longfield) but on this page we stick to Longueville. [See also Longfield1.]
