Patfield, Samuel (1834–1910)

The death occurred at his residence Paterson, last Monday evening, of Mr. Samuel Patfield, one of the oldest residents of the district. He had been ailing for a considerable time, but the immediate cause of death was an attack of pneumonia. The late Mr. Patfield, who was 77 years of age, was a resident of the Paterson district for upwards of 50 years, during which time he followed the occupation of a builder, and during the latter years farming and grazing pursuits. He leaves a wife and family of five sons—Messrs. Samuel (master mariner, Newcastle), James (Newcastle), Herbert (Paterson), Stanley (Sydney), and Montague Patfield (Paterson), and three daughters— Mrs. M. Smith, Mrs. W. Tucker, and Mrs. A. Taylor, all of Paterson. His remains were interred in the Church of England portion of the Paterson cemetery.
