from Pastoral Review, 16 March 1922

The death of Mr. W. L. Field, at his home, Tahara, Deloraine, has removed a well-known Tasmanian grazier and sportsman. The late Mr. Field, who was 66 years of age, had been laid aside only a short time with illness. He owned a considerable amount of property, including the Whitefoord Hills Estate, which he sold for soldier settlement. He engaged chiefly in grazing pursuits, and also in the breeding of blood stock. He was keenly interested in the turf, and maintained a stud of about twenty mares. In association with his brother, Mr. J. T. Field, of Calstock, he imported direct from England the sires Chiron and Simon of the Spear. He leaves a widow and two sons, Messrs. H. L. Field, of Warbreccan, Deniliquin, N.S.W., and K. Field, recently owner of Mount Hamilton, Vic., and one daughter, Mrs. D'Antoine, of Sydney.
