Mr. Layfield, My name is Rev. Larry B. Jones. My mother was a Layfield. I have traced our Layfield as far back as about 1560, the birth of John Layfield. John died Nov. 6, 1617. He was married to Bridget Robinson. John was assigned along with 46 other theologians to translate the Bible into English. John's group was assigned the task of translating Genesis to 2 Kings. You can find the info on the internet by typing John Layfield Translator. Or contact me at e-mail: lbjones33 @ yahoo.com.
