Manfield is located in the state of Texas and a suburban city of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex area. The city's territory is mostly within Tarrant County and a small part in the Ellis and Johnson counties. The area was first settled by the European settlers that arrived in the northern-central part of the state of Texas through the rolling Cross Timbers County. The settlers in the area were of Irish-Scottish origins and are pioneer farmers that came from the southern part of Texas, which followed the frontier as it began to shift to the western part of Mississippi. The settlers entered the area where the Native Americans have been inhabiting for thousands of years, and the Comanche posed a severe threat among the settlers, wherein the United States Army built Fort Worth in 1849 along the farms to protect the populated frontier.
