One of the oldest men in Cobourg, and for more than thirty years prominent in business, and in municipal affairs, is John Field, who was born at Wiviliscombe, Somersetshire, England, July 10, 1793, hence at the time of writing he is in his 86th year. His parents were John and Myra (Collard) Field, his father being engaged in the general mercantile trade in Somersetshire for many years. The subject of this notice received an academic education; then served an apprenticeship of six years at Taunton in the mercantile business; was subsequently an assistant in stores at Exeter, Bath, Bristol and London, and was afterwards in trade for himself at Wiviliscombe, Tiverton and Tavistock. About 1817, Mr. Field married Miss Harriet Chorley of his native town, and she died ten months afterwards in childbed, leaving a daughter, Harriet, now the widow of Thomas Hill, of England. Four or five years afterwards he married Martha Woodbury, and in 1834 brought his family to Canada, he having visited Cobourg two years before; and concluded to settle here.

Biography of Bethel Field

The ancestors of the Field family, of Chesterfield, were of old Puritan stock, who settled in Taunton, Mass., early in colonial times, where many of their descendants still live. Bethuel, son of Nathaniel Field, of Taunton, married Sally Lincoln, of Norton, Mass., and settled in Chesterfield, in 1819 or ’20. “He was somewhat given to accounts, being a ‘Squire,’ and a prominent man in town matters.” He died in 1847, Mrs. Field surviving him until 1867. Jessie Field, one of their ten children, born November 3, 1811, inherited his mother’s refined sensibilities and his father’s good sense and mental acumen; while Hannah J. Streeter, whom he married in 1838 possessed tact, energy and executive ability. An unfortunate fall, resulting in permanent lameness, blighted Mr. Field’s future prospects, and necessitated his removal from the farm, in 1846, to Factory Village, to engage in a less active occupation, and finally caused his death, in April, 1851, at the early age of thirty-nine years. His wife still lives, and resides at Wilmington, Vt. – This is also the residence of her youngest daughter, Mary E. Field, born October 6, 1845, who married John R. Buell, a worthy young man of business ability, and a native of Wilmington. They have three children, Orrin R., a bright, scholarly lad of thirteen, and Helen M. and Albert J., born in June, 1882 and ’84, respectively....
