Born in Ontario on 6 March 1876, son of George and Mary Nield, he came to Manitoba in 1882 and homestead with his family in the Seeburn district of western Manitoba. He later farmed at NE33-19-26W in the Rural Municipality of Silver Creek. On 9 March 1904, he married Laura Mabel Ross (1884-1953), daughter of Richard R. Ross. They had eight children: Claude George Nield (1905-1979), Rodney John Ross Nield (1907-1965), Albertum Charles Russell Nield (1909-1994), David Andrew Howard Nield (1910-1975), Olive Mary Marguerite Nield (1912-2003), Alvin Lloyd Ernest Nield (1918-1987), Harvey Rose Everett Nield (1920-1990), and Lewis Raymond McKee Nield (1922-1990). He served 22 years as a municipal councillor and was Reeve of the municipality from 1940 to 1941, and again from 1944 to 1945. He died on 10 April 1963 and was buried in the Russell Memorial Garden.
