According to ancestry.com, here is the origin of the name Bromfield. It is a variant of Broomfield.
English: habitational name from any of the places named with Old English brôm ‘broom’, ‘gorse’ + feld ‘open country’, for example Broomfield in Essex, Kent, and Somerset, or Bromfield in Cumberland and Shropshire.
