> RPFHA > Field Appeal


Edward Field's monument at Castlereagh Cemetery was broken in a storm in April 2012. It had makeshift repairs in the past but needed careful restoration by a Stonemason. The cost was $1,980.
Colin Field, his descendant who maintains the website " From a Distant Field ", launched an appeal to raise the money needed. Colin donated the first $50 for the restoration and many people added to this so we quickly reached our target.
Penrith Council ordered the work and heritage approvals were obtained. Work was finished in early October 2012.
All Rope-Pulley descendants who are in the John Rope line, and all who are descended from James Jones Rope, are ALSO descended from Edward Field. This is why the Rope-Pulley Family Heritage Assoc supported this cause.
Thank you everybody for your contributions to this worthwhile cause!!
