Scroggsfield was named from the open-air preaching (i.e. in a field) of Rev. E. N. Scroggs.[4]

An 1831 reference had this to say of Fox Township: "Fox, the name of a post township in the southern border of Columbiana County, about 15 miles southeast of New Lisbon, and 130 northeast of Columbus. The office is ridiculously called Scroggsfield."[5] Fox Township was taken from Columbiana County to form Carroll County.
