Born at Bath, Somerset, and educated at Rugby School, Attfield played club cricket for Lansdown Cricket Club, then considered the premier cricket team in Somerset. In 1845, he was selected to play a first-class match for the West of England against the Marylebone Cricket Club at Cricket Down. In a match which the West won by an innings and 94 runs, Attfield batted once, being dismissed for a duck by William Hillyer.
