Badhamsfield was mentioned a few times in this recent post.

And again in this post which suggest's, not surprisingly, that it takes it's name from an owner or tenant named Badham. This site's PR database contains over 350 Badham, altho of course not as early as the 1300s. I think the earliest is 1570, at Ledbury, where many of the earlier Badham PRs are from, but the name does eventually occur all across the area. There will of course be spelling variations too, eg some BADAMs in Newland c1570.
