He was born in Tavistock, Devonshire, England in 1830, the son of John Field, and was brought to Cobourg, Upper Canada by his parents in 1834. He operated a general store in Cobourg in partnership with his brother John Collard. Field served on the public school board, served ten years on the town council and was mayor of Cobourg. He was also a commissioner of the Cobourg Town Trust.
