After a careful research of the records and other sources of infor- 
mation in tlie towns of Providence, Cranston, Johnston, Warwick, 
Scituate, Gloucester, Cumberland and Smithfield of Rhode Island, 
and of Plymouth and Salem, of Massachusetts, I have compiled the 
following- record of the families of William and John Field first of 
Providence. I think I can safely claim that as far as they go they 
are correct. 

I have to acknowledge the invaluable assistance of Mr. George T. 
Paine, of Providence, in the revision of my work, than whom no 
more competent authority probably can be found in the State on any 
question of genealogy, he having made it a special study. 

For the better understanding of some of the parties interested in 
these records, and who are unaccustomed to this method of number- 
ing in the record, I would say that the figures on the margin num- 
ber the heads of families, and the central figures number each 
individual from the first down. 

I would also explain that with each distinct branch, except that of 
James Field, I have commenced back at the first progenitor, which 
will account for some repetition. 

The James Field record commences at No. 1(5 on the John Field 
record, and then is traced by itself, he being a direct descendant of 
John Field and brother of Deacon John No. 15. 

There are several families of Fields in this city that are not de- 
scended from the first settlers of that name. The family of Rev. 
Samuel J. Field are descendants of Darby Field, the first white man 
that ascended the White Mountains and who settled in New^ Hamp- 
shire. 

Mr. James H. Field, who descended from the Massachusetts Fields, 
migrated here from Boston Highlands. Mr. Silas M. Field, son of 
Robert, who resided in Carmel, Maine, tells me that he was informed 
by the late Daniel Field of this city — of two generations back, — that 
a brother of the first John Field settled in Maine, and doubtless was 
his progenitor.

INTRODUCTION. 



It is said by the genealogist of the family of Zachariali Field, who 
first settled in Dorchester, Mass., that " the first individuals of the 
name of Field — AVilliam and John — that settled in Providence, emi- 
grated to this coxmtry in 1632." No record of this family is to be 
found in Rhode Island earlier than 163(3. At that time we find the 
name of William Ff eld, Ff eild or Ff ield, and a year later that of John 
Ffeld, Ffeild or Ffield on the public records of Providence. 

The name of llobert Field occurs as an inhabitant of Newport in 
1638. He afterwards settled in Flushing, L. I. William Field signed 
the " compact " in 1636. John Field swore allegiance in 1637. 

Both William and John Field were in public life after this date ; both 
were emj^loyed in the transaction of tlie business of the Colonies; 
both were appointed members of a committee for arranging and es- 
tablishing a "General Court" at Newi^ort, K. I., in 1646. 

It is a question much mooted among interested j^arties at the pres- 
ent time whether these men, William and John Field, were related. 
It is a tradition in the family of Thomas Field, nephew and heir of 
William, that AVilliam Field came from Snowden, in Wales. I find no 
proof of it. It is believed by the various genealogists of difl'erent fam- 
ilies of Field in the United States that these men were brothers. It is 
stated by Henry M. Field, the genealogist of the family of his father, 
David Dudley Field, D. D., of Stockbridge, Mass., that "a few years 
after the arrival of his ancestor, Zachariali Field, who settled in Dor- 
chester, Mass., two brothers, William and John Field, appeared at 
Providence, from whom are descended the largo number of Fields in 
the State of Rhode Island." It is the opinion of others that they were 
the descendants of Sir John Field, the astronomer. Sir John disin- 
herited one or more of his sons, on account of their political and pu- 
ritanic principles, and it is believed they fled to Holland with the Pu- 
ritans, and when embarking for this country came through Wales, 
and were registered there. Osgood Field, a distinguished genealo- 
gist, formerly of New York, now of London, England, a descendant 
of Robert Field, of Flushing, L. I., who was a descendant of Sir John 
Fi&ld, expresses great confidence in the opinion, and offers some strong 



4 INTRODUCTION. 

reasons to confirm it. that William and John were brothers, and de- 
scendants of Sir John Field sons of William Field, a son of Sir John. 

A careful investigation of the records of Plymouth and Salem 
throw no light on this subject. Neither is there any evidence that 
either of them attempted a settlement in either town. On the records 
of Providence are recorded some business transactions between Wil- 
liam and John, among others the transfer of valuable property, 
where no money is mentioned as compensation, but "valuable con- 
siderations already received" is mentioned instead. This and some 
other considerations indicate more than a mere friendly interest be- 
tween the parties, but no relationship is mentioned. Myron Barr 
Field, of New York, thus traces the genealogy of William Field. 
" He was the son of William Field, born 1571, who was son of Sir 
John Field, who died in 1587, who was the son of Kichard Field, who 
died 1542, who was grand-son of William, who died 1480." Osgood 
Field in his book of genealogy says of Sir John Field, "that he de- 
scended from and used the same ' arms ' of the family of Hubertus 
de la Feld, who went to England with William the Conqueror; and 
who traced his family back to the Chateau de la Feld, near Colmar in 
Alsatia, in France, where the counts of that name had been seated for 
centuries — so early as the darkest period that succeeded the fall of the 
Koman Empire." He also states that "in addition' to the original 
arms of this ancient family of the West Riding of Yorkshire — ' Sable 
a chevron between three garbs argent ' — was granted to Sir John 
Field in recognition of his services to science." " A dexter arm issuing 
out of clouds, proper, pessways, habited Gules, holding in the hand 
also proper a sphere Or." He also states that the prefix ' de la' was 
dropped at the time of the war between England and France, as 
unpopular. He traces on the records of Bradford and other places 
the gradual change of the name from Ff eld to Field, in the transfer of 
the same property, in the course of time. He also alludes to the 
fact that some of the property that belonged to that ancient family 
is called " Field's court" at the present time. 

There is a remarkable recurrence of the same names among the 
descendants of the families of Thomas and John Field, that pre- 
vailed in the family of Sir John and his ancestors. The names 
William, Thomas, Eichard, John, James, Jeremiah, Zachariah, 
and Daniel are in every generation. 

Personal resemblance and traits of character are still traceable in 
some of the older members of both families; strongly marked features, 
keen blue eyes, and sandy or brown hair characterized the earlier 
families. Stern integrity of purpose, stubborn wills, fierce tempers 
and indomitable independence prevailed in both as a class, exhibiting 
the antecedents of a haughty race unaccustomed to servility. 

The homestead of John Field was situated on the " western side of 
the saltwater," in the neighborhood of "Cowpen Point." Besides 
large tracts of land in Cranston and Smithfield, he also owned the 



INTRODUCTION. 5 

tract alluded to, as devised by William Field in 1661 " for valuable 
considerations already received." It was described as being situated 
on " Waubossett Plains," " the path to Mashapaug running through 
it," — now Broad, Weybosset and Greenwich streets. According to 
Rev. E. M. Stone, of the Rliode Island Uistorical Society, the house lot 
of William Field consisted of eight acres of land, fronting on what is 
now South Main street, extending from Hopkins to Planet street. 
The house stood where the Old Providence Bank now stands, and the 
house of his nephew and heir, Thomas Field, stood where the Provi- 
dence Institution for Savings now stands. He also states that 
" William Field's house was one of the three that was barricaded at 
tl\e time the Indians burnt the city." William Field bought out the 
rights of two of the original owners of "proprietary rights," the 
rights of Thomas, James and Francis Weston ; and his landed posses- 
sions were large, extending into Cranston, Warwick, Johnston, 
Scituate, Gloucester and Smithfield. Eight hundred acres of land 
adjacent to "Field's Point," (that bears his name) was included in his 
possessions, and it Avas the homestead of later generations. 

Leaving biographical notices to abler pens, I will simply say that 
much of interest might be said of many individuals in both families. 
The second John Field, of Providence, who settled in Bx'idgewater 
and was called " Capt. John Field of Bridgewater," was consjiicuous 
in his day for his public services, wealth and social position. His 
great-grandson, Dea. John Field, 4th, of Providence, was also one of 
the most noted men of his time, for his enteri^rise, piety and benevo- 
lence, his large possessions making some of his descendants rich, 
even at the present day. There are many of the descendants of 
Zachariah Field, 2d son of the first John Field, of Providence, that 
our city is justly proud of, for their culture, social position, enter, 
prise and wealth. Many of them ai'e among our leading men. 

Most of the descendants of Thomas Field, the nephew and heir of 
the first William Field, settled in other States, where they and some 
of their descendants have left an honoroble record. The sons of Capt. 
William Field, of Fields Point, were all of them noted men. A per- 
son that was familiar with the society of their day, said of them : 
"No young men in the State were more 'looked uji to' than Abner 
and Nehemiah Field." They both held commissions in the Conti- 
nental Army before they were twenty-one years old, and were pres- 
ent at the battle of Bunker Hill. They were leading men in public 
and private life in the towns where they settled, and some of their 
descendants are among the most enterprising Western men. " Hon. 
George Field, of Cranston," the youngest son of Captain William, 
held a high social position, and was noted for his moral and social 
qualities. He was always in public life. His stern sense of right, 
and his unyielding integrity, his stately and dignified bearing, caused 
him occasionally to be alluded to as an "Old Roman Senator." One 
of our orators, in describing the Rhode Island Assembly of other days, 



b INTRODUCTION. 

alluded to " George Field, the Cato of the Senate." His heart and 
hand was ever open to the distressed, and his counsel was sought by 
all ranks in life. 

People of all stations, parties and creeds attended his funeral, and 
the Town Council of Cranston adjourned their meeting in order to be 
present. Various otliers equally worthy of mention I might notice 
if space would admit.
