Fielden (House), Fielding (Fm)
Early-attested site in the Parish of Silsoe
- la Felde 1205 FF 1286 Dunst
- Fieldon Farm 1826 B
Probably descriptive of the open country (v. feld ) in contrast to the wooded country in the north of the parish. The en is probably due to an alternative dat. pl. form (cf. Flitton and Ion supra 148, 151), the ing being a variant vulgarism (cf. Wilden supra 66).
