Broadfield was a medieval parish containing 374 acres which was probably originally part of Rushden, but the chapel had gone by the end of the 16th century and it is now part of Cottered.

It is in Odsey Hundred

Reginald Hine purchased  a vellum-clad account book, covering the period 1689-96, relating to Broadfield Hall. As a result he prepared Portrait of an English Country Squire - based on the household account book of James Forester of Broadfield Hall. Following Hine's death this was published in Relics of an Un-Common Attorney

If you know of other books, websites, etc, relating to this place, please tell me.
