Field, Thomas Alfred

Meat supplier who migrated to Sydney as a boy with his parents after livestock disease plagued his father's business in England. He worked in his father's retail and wholesale butchering business from 1900. By World War I, the Field brothers controlled about one-third of Sydney's wholesale meat business. He established the family business which eventually evolved into T A Field Estates Pty Ltd and still operates today.
