      Nepean Times – Saturday, 5th February, 1921

      The late Mrs. Field.

      Mrs. Margaret Field, whose death on Tuesday morning of last week was briefly referred to in our last issue, was the relict of the late Mr. Henry Field and was born at Homebush in the year 1834. She came to Penrith with her parents Mr. & Mrs. Francis Brownlow at the time when the present St. Stephens Church was in the course of erection. The family settled at Regentville and in the year 1858 she was married to Mr. Henry Field of Castlereagh in the old historic Methodist Church of that place. Mr. Field, who had only predeceased her by four months, followed the occupation of a farmer at Castlereagh until the memorable flood of 1867, which proved so disastrous to them that they moved to Wattle Flat, at the time of the great rush to that thriving township. There they resided for 14 years, and then returned to Penrith to renew the acquaintances of their former years.

      Throughout the whole of her life, Mrs. Field was an ardent worker for the cause of Christianity, being an active class member of the Methodist Church for fully 68 years. She lived a truly consistent life right to the end, being known among her friends and acquaintances as a most industrious and model wife and mother. She belonged to the great and grand old class of people who are, unfortunately, becoming so rare. Mrs. Field leaves 7 sons and one daughter, 27 grand-children and six great grand-children.
      The funeral service was conducted in the Methodist Church, Penrith, by Rev. J. B. Penman, the remains being interred in St. Stephens cemetery in the family enclosure. Mr. C. H. Fulton conducted the service at the graveside.
