Notes

  • Immigration*: before October 1645; New York
  • Note*: Robert Field, immigrant ancestor of the Fields of Flushing, Long Island.
  • Note: "Robert Field was one of the residents of Flushing named in the original patent of 19 Oct 1645. He signed, as did his sons Robert and Anthony, both the petition on behalf of William Hallett ca. 1656, and the Flushing Remonstrance of 27 Dec. 1657. He may also be the Robert Field who was named in the second patent of Flushing dated 16 Feb. 1666/7, but there is a chance that this was his son Robert who was, however, in Newtown as early as 1669 but not much earlier than that."

    Robert Field's unrecorded deed 12 Feb 1653/4 grants land in Flushing to sons Robert and Anthony. The unrecorded statement by his widow Charity Field 6 Feb 1672/3 disclaims rights to certain property.4
  • Note: McCracken rejects various assertions of Osgood Field and of Frederick Clifton Pierce. McCracken finds no evidence that Robert Field's parents were William Field and Susan Midgley, or that he was baptized 1605 in Halifax Parish, Sowerby, England, or that he had married earlier Ruth Fairbank and Elizabeth Taylor in Halifax. McCracken finds no evidence that identifies this Robert Field with the Robert Field named in Rhode Island records 1638 through 1653, but considered it an open question. McCracken finds no evidence that Robert Field had daughters Elizabeth and Hannah, and considers as only a possibility that he had a son Benjamin.5,6
