      Nepean Times – Penrith. Saturday, September 18th, 1920

      A well known and highly esteemed resident of this district passed away on Saturday last in the person of Mr. Henry Field at the residence of his daughter Mrs. W. H. Dukes of Lemon Grove, Penrith. A little over three years ago deceased was stricken with paralysis, from which he never recovered. Although he was so long bedridden he experienced little pain, a paralysis; apparently, having mercifully relieved him of the pain of rheumatism. During his illness he was always cheerful and uncomplaining and passed peacefully away.

      The late Mr. Field was born at Castlereagh in 1834 and lived in NSW all his life. He was married to Margaret Brownlow at the old Castlereagh Methodist Church in 1858. He was engaged in farming till1867, when the flood destroyed all his crops and livestock. At this time the gold fever was raging at Wattle Flat, whither he journeyed with his family of three children and wife, and there he followed the occupation of gold miner for about 14 years, during which time he always had a strong desire to return to his native village. This he did in 1881. He was always a strong adherence of the Methodist faith, and was a local preacher for over 60 years. In the absence of present day means of locomotion, he often walked from Castlereagh to Mt. Druitt, Tottenham Park and St. Marys to take services, and then had to return home by the same method. Upon his return from the gold fields he followed the building trade, and was for many years also employed as leading hand by the Penrith Municipal Council which position he occupied until owing to severe attacks of rheumatism he was compelled to retire from active life on 30th March, 1904.

      He leaves a widow, one daughter (Mrs. W.H Dukes of Lemon Grove) and seven sons; viz.

      Joshua ( well known farmer of Castlereagh), Frank (Esbank), Henry (Builder, Hornseywood, Penrith), Alfred (tailor, Sydney), Herbert (Railway Department N.Z.), Hilton (Tramway Department, Sydney), and Leslie (Inspector with the Mercantile Mutual Co. Sydney); also 27 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.

      The funeral took place on Monday, The Rev. J. B. Penman conducted the service at the Methodist Church whither the body was conveyed. The ladies of the congregation very kindly draped the church. Mr. Penman feelingly and sympathetically referred to the life of the deceased and also to his valuable services to the church. As the last remains were being borne from the church the organist (Miss o. Moore) rendered The dead March in Saul. The coffin was conveyed from the hearse to St. Stephens cemetery by four of the deceased’s sons where the local service was conducted by the Rev. Hatfield Hall, assisted by Rev. B. Penman. The body was laid to rest in the family enclosure, beside that of the deceased’s son, Arthur, who had pre-deceased him by 24 years.

      Mrs. J. Price & Son had charge of the funeral arrangements.
