Field, B. A., son of Safford E. and Phoebe (Allen) Field, was born in Houndsfleld in 1853, which place was his parents' native town. His grandparents were natives of Vermont, and his father's father located at Field's Settlement in 1806. On his mother's side his ancestors were descendants from the old Ethan Allen stock; on his father's, they were a branch of that family of which David Dudley and Stephen Field are members. Brayton A. was graduated from the Watertown High School in 1873, and from Dartmouth College in 1878. He then became principal of Proctor Academy, Andover, N. H., and in 1883 began the study of law with O'Brien & Emerson. He was admitted to the bar April 20, 1886, and has since been in practice in Watertown.
