Jeremiah Fielding arrived in Tasmania in 1855 aboard the “Whirlwind”, one of many settlers recruited by the Launceston Immigration Aid Society at that time. Jeremiah hailed from Great Ellingham in Norfolk where he had been listed as a miller in the 1851 census. He was the son of John and Esther Fielding, the only surviving male of 7 offspring. Prior to emigrating he married Mary Ann Harvey and they had 4 sons (unfortunately 2 sons both named William Alfred died as youngsters). Following his father’s death in 1850, Jeremiah’s share of the estate would have assisted financially in the move to Tasmania. On arrival in Tasmania the family settled and worked around the Deloraine / Westbury area but again suffered from the loss of another son John Joseph in 1855 then his namesake John Allen in 1857. To compound the series of deaths, Mary died in 1863 only aged 39. So, only 2 sons survived from this marriage – James and Charles. Jeremiah later married his housekeeper Lucy Maria Illenden in 1865 and they had a further 10 children. They moved to Penguin in 1882 where a sawmill and flour mill were established at the present day Carmentown. Jeremiah died soon after in 1884 and 2 of his sons Charles and Ernest managed the mills

In summary, the following offspring are those with the closest ties to the current generation of Fieldings in our local district.

  • James (1846 – 1942) m Anne Clark – settled at Penguin
  • Charles William (1859 - 1900) m Sarah Anne Smith.
  • Frederick Percy John (1866 – 1921) m Alice Groom 
  • Ernest Joseph (1867 – 1931) m Eliza Ellen Smith
  • Lucy Anne (1874 - 1963) m John Jacob Robert Barker
  • George Percy (1876 – 1929) m Edith Ann Barker
