from Pastoral Review, 15 September 1923

The death on the 6th ult. of Mr. George Nield, senior, of Oldham Park, near Balranald, N.S.W., at the age of 66 years, came as a shock to his many friends.

He was born at Oldham, England, and as a young man came out to Victoria. After many years of successful farming in the Echuca district, he, in 1893, selected land on Yanga Station, in N.S.W. A few years later he purchased an adjoining selection, and still later bought a freehold property on the Wakool River, and so established a nice and valuable property, on which he combined sheep raising with agriculture.

Two of his sons saw active service, one paying the supreme sacrifice.
