James Wright and his friend John Hamilton Mortimer Lanyon settled at Lanyon in 1833 as squatters after arriving from London earlier that year. In 1835 they purchased several adjoining blocks on the Murrumbidgee River, then the edge of legal occupation within the nineteen counties. In 1833 they were amongst the first squatters to established sheep runs in the Queanbeyan region, building the Lanyon Homestead. In 1835 they acquired several adjoining blocks on the Murrumbidgee River. Wright established Cuppacumbalong Station located on the southern side of the Murrumbidgee River in 1839.

News came into town that Mr. Joseph Oldfield, senior, of Tharwa, died suddenly on Sunday morning. The deceased was a very old man. So far as can be gathered at present, he rose from his bed, and before breakfast walked into the garden. His wife, wondering that he did not re- turn went to look for him, and found him dead. An inquest was held yesterday, at which no doubt the cause of death would be satisfactorily ascertained.
The Inquest that was held at the Half Moon, Queanbeyan, recorded the death was caused by a ruptured heart (possible meaning a ruptured aneurism).
Saturday 28 May 1887

Later she came to Queanbeyan where she married the late Mr. Joseph Oldfield at St. John's Church of England, Canberra, in 1875. Afterwards they lived in the Naas District for many years where the family was born and reared.
Mrs. Oldfield also reared three other families beside her own.

One of her brothers, Thomas Rawlings, predeceased her two years ago at the age of 92 years. A few years ago the late Mrs. Oldfield, who was familiarly known to many as "Grannie," went to live with her daughter in Morrissett Street, retaining all her faculties till the last.
For the past few months she had not enjoyed very good health, but was up and about as usual on Friday, passing peacefully away in her sleep during the early hours of Saturday morning.
She is survived by five sons, Henry (Gundaroo), Ernest (Tumbarumba), Thomas (Naas), Walter (Yaouk), and Edward (Naas), and two daughters, Elizabeth (Mrs. R.B. McInnes, Queanbeyan) and Mary Jane (Mrs. F. Shoobert, Canberra). There are 34 grandchildren, 61 great-grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren.
Besides those mentioned there were many friends and neighbours who had learned to appreciate the late Mrs. Oldfield's helpfulness and kindness.
The interment was made in the Anglican portion of the Tharwa Road cemetery on Sunday afternoon, where a large assemblage paid their last respects to a grand old lady. Rev. W. M. Holliday officiated at Christ Church and afterwards at the graveside.
The pall-bearers were Vincent Oldfield, Percy Shoobert, Leonard McInnes, and Edward Gregory, and there were a number of beautiful floral tributes placed on the grave.

Awfully Sudden Death. JAMES OLDFIELD.
Yesterday afternoon a young man named Robertson reported to the police that on his way to Queanbeyan from Duntroon he noticed a man lying alongside a waggonette inside and a short distance from the road near the four-mile peg. His curiosity being aroused, he proceeded to investigate, and found the man to be Mr. James Oldfield, apiarist of Queanbeyan, who has an out-apiary at the place named. Oldfield was apparently dead. On receipt of this information, the Coroner was informed and accompanied Senior-Sergeant Clarke, Constable Trotter, and the deceased's son in a car to investigate.
On arrival at the out-apiary the party found the report was only too true. Alongside the waggonette, to which a horse was harnessed, the wheels of the vehicle being tied with a piece of rope, lay on its side the body of Oldfield, which was still warm, and from its mouth a quantity of vomit had come. On turning the body over on its back the right side of the face and the neck were found to be livid, beyond that there were no external marks of violence.
From a statement made by the deceased's son, his father had gone early that morning to the out-apiary, and asked the son to accompany him.
This the latter was unable to do, so the elder man went alone. After that he was not seen alive. He had evidently been at work all day at the apiary, and having finished, had locked up the place, and was returning to his horse and vehicle with the intention of driving home, when he must have suddenly fallen and died-apparently without a struggle, of which the earth on the roadway where he had fallen showed not the slightest trace. By the Coroner's instructions the Government medical officer (Dr. Blackall) was authorised, to make a post-mo tem investigation in order to ascertain the cause of death, the body having for that purpose been taken to the hospital morgue. Of course, an inquest was necessary, and so the Coroner's Court was opened at the Court House this morning for a due investigation.
Deceased was about 65 years of age, a native of the district, where he had resided all his lifetime. His family connections hereabouts are numerous. The foregoing is but a precise of the evidence given in the Coroner's Court this morning by several witnesses, that of the Government Medical Officer being to the effect that death resulted from heart failure, one of the heart's ventricles showing considerable fatty degeneration. The verdict was in accordance with this testimony.
