Suffield, Hartford, Connecticut, USA
Originally known as Southfield—pronounced "Suffield", on May 20, 1674, the committee for the settling of the town petitioned:

"...that the name of the place may be Suffield, it being the southernmost town that either at present is, or like to be in that Countrey, and neere adjoining to the south border of our Patent in those parts."

The petition was granted by the Massachusetts Bay court on June 3, 1674. Suffield was incorporated as a town in March 1682.
