      Walter married Hannah Leppard on 25 March 1851 in Horsted Keynes.

      Hannah was born about 1833 in Horsted Keynes, Sussex.  At the time of the 1851 census she was 19 years old and living with her sister and brother-in-law, Mary and William Marchant in Horsted Keynes.  The census noted she was the wife of Walter Field an agricultural labourer.

    3. Henry Field

    4. Harriet Field was born about 1833.  She was 8 years old in 1841.

    5. Matilda Field was born about 1834 in Slaugham.  She was 7 years old in 1841.  In 1851 she was 17 years old.

    6. Clement Field was born about 1839.  The 1841 census recorded Clement was 2 years old.  In 1851 he was 11 years old and the census recorded his name as William C. Field and he was an agricultural labourer.  The 1861 census recorded he was an unmarried 21 year old agricultural labourer and lodging with the family of his brother Walter.

      Clement married Ellen Willard on 2 May 1864  in Slaugham, as per the IGI, or Ellen Stoner as per a database at Ancestry.co.uk.

      When the 1871 census was recorded the couple were living at Voilet's Cottage in Lower Beeding.  Clement was a 28 year old carter from Slaugham and Elener was 29 and from Pulborough.  Also with them was unmarried 46 year old lodger and farm labourer, Peter Jupp, who had been born in Slaugham.

      The 1881 census recorded that 37 year old Clement and 32 year old Ellen were living as servants in the home of Herbert Margetron at Tower Hill in Horsham, Sussex.  Clement was a gardener from Slaugham and Ellen a housekeeper from Pulborough.

      By 1891 the couple were living in Roffey, North Horsham and Clement was a 55 year old farmer from Slaugham and Ellen was 57.  Her place of birth was not recorded.

      (Please note, I'm not to sure about Clement and Ellen.  I have taken details from the census which don't seem to match very well.  I have not yet seen their marriage certificate, which I'm hoping will give Ellen's maiden name and the names of their fathers.  There were 3 Ellen Willards born in Pulborough, 1 in 1839 and 2 in 1841, but all 3 are accounted for and none would seem have married Clement.)

  7. Thomas Field was baptised on 31 August 1788 in Cuckfield.  He was mentioned in the will of his Great Uncle Churchman Field.  Did he marry Barbara Penfold in 1815?

  8. Joseph Field was baptised on 12 June 1791 in Cuckfield and buried there as an infant an pauper on 3 July 1791.
