Although his grave marker cites his birth in Guilford, he was actually born in East Guilford (now Madison) in the house that his grandfather Field built. He graduated from Yale University in 1802 and was ordained a Congregational pastor on 11 April 1803. He married Submit Dickinson on 31 October 1803 in Somers, Connecticut. He pastored the Congregational Church in Hadam, Connecticut from 1804 to 1818, when he migrated to western New York as a missionary for a year. He was the pastor of the Congregational Church in Stockbridge, Massachusetts from 1819 to 1837, when he was called back to the Haddam church, where he served until 1844. He and his wife moved back to Stockbridge in May 1851 after he retired. He was also a noted author of his times. He is best known as the father of the famed Field brothers, David Jr., Matthew, Jonathan, Stephen, Cyrus and Henry. His two daughters, Emilia and Mary Elizabeth, married men, who also became well known in their fields.
