pp. 84-89, our associate, Mr. Appleton, gave an account of Herbert
Pelham and his family, which rendered it almost certain that none
of the name, of this family, remain in this country. There are,
however, many descendants remaining of Peter Pelham, an eminent
artist and engraver, the founder indeed of these arts in New Eng-
land. Our attention has been called to this pedigree by a curious
statement in the last edition of Burke's Commoners or Landed
Gentry. Peter Pelham was step-father of John Singleton Copley,
having married Mary Singleton, widow of Richard Copley.

Burke says (p. 1379) of the Singletons, "This family is one of importance and
station in the county Clare, descended from the Singletons of Lancashire. John
Singleton, Esq., a scion of the Lancashire house, m. Jane Bruffe, and had, with
an only son John, two daughters, viz., Anne, wife of Samuel Cooper, Esq., of
Cooper Hill, co. Limerick, and Sabah, who m. 1st., Richard Copley, then of the
Co. Limerick, but afterwards of Boston in America, and was mother by him of
John Singleton Copley, R. A., father of Lord Lyndhurst; she m. 2nd., Henry
Pelham, Esq., by whom she had Henry and Edward Pelham; the former m. Miss
Butler, daughter of William Butler, Esq., of Castle Crine, and had issue, Peter
and William Pelham, twin brothers, who d. unm."

There are errors in this account. Mary (not Sarah) Singleton's second hus-
band was Peter Pelham, and by him she had a son Henry. We find no record of
a child named Edward, and in fact Burke does not give any particulars of him.
Henry Pelham, who m. Miss Butler, was an artist, was b. at Boston, 14 Feb.
1748/9, and was drowned in 1806, in the river Kenmare in Ireland. 1. John Single-

Copley — The Rt. Hon. Sir John Singleton (Lord Lyndhurst),
London, Oct. 12, 1863, in his 92d year. It is well known that he
was a Boston boy and it is presumed that he was born in a house,
which stood on the descent of Beacon Hill. His grandfather,

Three Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service 59

Richard Copley, was a tobacconist. After his death, the widow
Mary, Lord Lyndhurst's grandmother, carried on the business,
in Lindall's Row, "against the Quaker meeting house," near the
upper end of King, now State Street. She married Peter Pelham,
who became also a tobacconist. He also taught writing and arith-
metic, as appears by an advertisement in the "Boston News Letter"
of Sept. 12, 1748, which is copied into the Register, Vol. IV, p. 178.
He was "sometime Dancing Master," also an engraver, in mezzo-
tinto. He engraved a curious print of His Excellency Wm. Shirley,
Esq. His widow died in Boston, 29 April, 1789.

John Singleton Copley, the father of Lord Lyndhurst, was bom in Boston,
in 1738. He began to paint at a very early age, visited Italy in 1774, and England,
two years after, in 1776, where he met his wife and children, whom he had left
in Boston, they having left Massachusetts from Marblehead harbor, on the 27th
of May, 1775, in the Minerva, Capt. Callahan, arriving at Dover on the subse-
quent June, the vessel being the last, it is said, that left New England, bearing
the British flag. He devoted himself to portrait painting in London, and was
chosen a member of the Royal Academy, in 1770. He was patronized by Mr.
West. His first picture, which may be called historical, was the "Youth Rescued
from a Shark;" but the picture styled "Death of Lord Chatham," which repres-
ents the orator fainting in the house of lords, after the memorable speech in favor
of America, and which contains the portraits of all the leading men of that house,
established his fame. Mr. Copley pursued his profession with unabated ardor,
until his sudden death in England, Sept. 25, 1815, age about 76 years. Many full
length portraits painted by him remain in Massachusetts. In coloring and drapery
he excelled, and his hkenesses were faithful. See Watson's "Men and Times of the
Revolution," p. 202. 2nd ed. His wife Susanna, was the dau. of Richard Clarke,
a merchant in Boston, one of the consignees of the India company's tea. His
dau. m. Gardiner Greene, who in 1818, presented to Harvard College a collection
of all the proof engravings of Copley's historical paintings.

John Singleton Copley (Lord Lyndhurst) was born in Boston, May 21, 1772.
He was three years old when he arrived at London with his mother and sisters.
At the age of seven, he was sent to a boarding school at Clapham, near London,
and after the lapse of a few years, was placed under the Rev. Dr. Home, of Chis-
wick, with whom he remained until he entered Trinity College, Cambridge, where
he received the degree of Bachelor of Arts, in 1794, graduating with the highest
honors. He became a lay Fellow of his College and in 1795, visited the United
States imder a travelling fellowship of the college and made arrangements with
regard to family property in Boston, in 1798, he returned to England — commenced
the study of law at Lincoln's Inn, and was, for two years, with Mr. Tidd, a dis-
tinguished special pleader. In 1804, when 32 years old, he was called to the bar.
He took the Midland circuit, but his rise was slow though not, perhaps, slower
than that of some other lawyers of equal talents. He attained to the leadership
of the circuit in 1816. Mr. Copley was elected a member of parliament for Yar-
mouth in 1816 or as some accounts have it, in 1818. In 1819, he took the degree
of sergeant-at-law and was M.P. for Ashburton, having been made Chief Justice
of Chester, in 1818. He became Solicitor-General, in 1819, which office he held
until 1824, when he was made Attorney-General. In 1826, after an arduous
struggle, Mr. Copley was chosen M. P. for the university of Cambridge. A few
months later, on the death of Lord Giiford, he was made master of the rolls; was
promoted to the office of lord high chancellor of England, and created Lord Lynd-
hurst, ia April, 1827. His title was taken from the parish of Lyndhurst, in the
New Forest (Hampshire), a small place about 90 miles from London. It has been
stated that the Chancellor was led to select that place to furnish his title, because
it was there he first met his 1st wife. Lord Lyndhurst held the Chancellorship from
April 1828 to Nov. 1830. In 1834, he became Lord Chancellor ia the first Peel
Ministry, and again for the 3rd time, in the 2nd Peel Ministry, in 1841. When the
Whigs returned to power, in 1846, he left the office, and never afterward held that
or any other public station, though he often spoke in the House of Lords, when

60 Three Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service

great questions were under discussion. He was called "The Nestor of the House
of Lords." His speeches were remarkable for their clearness, vigor and force, even
when he had reached nearly to his 90th year.

Lord Lyndhurst was made an honorary member of the N. E.
Hist. Gen. Society in 1863. He was twice married, his first wife
being Mrs. Thomas, the widow of an Enghsh officer; and in 1836,
he married Miss Goldsmith, a Hebrew lady of singular personal at-
tractions. He had children by both marriages. The London
"Morning Post," of May 22, 1863, noticing his 91st birthday, being
the day previous, on which occasion was assembled a large circle
of admiring friends, remarks, ''We understand that the marriage
of the Hon. Georgiana Copley, Lord Lyndhurst's youngest dau.,
with Mr. DuCane, M.P., will take place at the close of the ensuing

Lord Lyndhurst was one of the most eminent statesmen of
England. He died the senior peer of the kingdom. "His mind,"
says "Blackwood's Magazine" of him, while living, "is a diamond
of the first water." It has a solidity, an acuteness, which master
with unerring ease and rapidity, everything, to which its energies
are directed."

He had

"A brain, in whose clear depths facts ordered lay,

For the calm will to fetch and rank and use,
A mood that with hfe's business blended play,

Yet never play and business would confuse."

An excellent portrait of Lord Lyndhurst in his chancellor's robes, painted some
twenty years since, by Mr. S. S. Osgood, is in the portrait gallery of the N. Y.
Hist. Society, and in the same gallery, there is a portrait by his father, an admirable
specimen of his style, which was painted before he left Boston. It is a curious
illustration of the singularly unostentatious habits of Lord Lyndhurst, as well as
of the permanency of English social Life, that he continued to occupy until his
death, the same house which his father had occupied before him.

The family of Cutler, originally of Stainborough Hall, in the
County of York, tradition asserts to have been of Saxon origin, and
to have descended from Leo Fric, Duke of Mercia, the first authen-
ticated ancestor of John Cutler, who resided at Wortley in York-
shire, with his kinsman. Sir Nicholas Wortley, a Standard Bearer
in the Wars of the Roses.

The New England Ancestors were James, Robert and John

1. James was in Watertown, Mass., in 1634, and is the descendant to whom
this Cutler line is traced. Robert first appears in Charlestown, in 1636,
and was married, while John Cutler Sen., with a family was in Hing-
ham in 1637. John is the descendant through the Hungerford line.
It was stated that this American branch descended from Admiral Sir
Gervase Cutler (who was killed in 1645, in defence of the Castle of
Pontifiact) and a descendant of Sir John Cutler was knighted in the
reign of Henry VI and was Standard Bearer in the "War of the Roses."
But this tradition, extensively circulated, could not be proven. Rev.
Robert Cutler, who graduated at Harvard College, in 1741, only 47
years after the death of his emigrant ancestor.

James Cutler was born in England in 1606, settled as early as 1634,
in Watertown, Mass., where the first record of the family in New England
is to be found. He made his will Nov. 24, 1684, at Cambridge Farms
and died May 17, 1694, aged 88. He was one of the OrigiQal Grantees
of land in the northerly part of the town on the road to Belmont. James
married Aima, sister of Capt. John Grout's wife, both of whom were
so opposed, tantaUzed in England for their Puritanism, that they re-
solved to seek their fortunes in New England and came unattended by
parent or near friends. He had, that year, 1635, passed all necessary

Three Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service 63

probation, had been received an inhabitant of Watertown and had a
house lot assigned him. Oct. 2, 1645, he was one of the Petitioners
"In relation to Washaway Plantation," now Weston. He married for
his second wife, Mary, widow of Thomas King, and for his third wife,
Phoebe, daughter of John Page. He had four sons, James, Thomas,
John and Samuel and eight daughters; his son Samuel, if ever, married,
left no descendants.

About this time, he settled at Cambridge Farms (now Lexington),
on what is now known as Wood Street, near the place where William
Hartwell resides, not far from the Concord (now Bedford) line. A part
of the farm has been in the famUy untU recently, when it was sold by
the heirs of Leonard Cutler. He, James, is supposed to have built one
of the first houses at the Farms, vestiges of the cellar stUl remain. The
house was located some 30 rods from the present highway, on an ele-
vation commanding an extensive view. He and others signed a Petition
to the General Court Oct., 1682, to be set off as a distinct parish, having
no Ministry without going from 5 to 10 miles. The people of Cambridge
opposed the separation and the passage of the petition was not granted.
The oldest paper upon the records at Lexington is a subscription list
in 1691, for the purpose of erecting a meettag house in the precinct.
It was signed by 41 persons, among whom were James Cutler and Thom-
as and John, his sons.

2. Thomas Cutler, son of James, was born at Watertown, Mass., about 1648,

died at Lexington, formerly Cambridge Farms, July 13, 1722, aged 74.
He had Jonathan and three other sons and three daughters. He took
an active part in suppressing the Indians and was honored in the Public
Records with the title of Lieutenant. He served as Assessor, Constable
and Selectman and was also active in Church matters and contributed
to the erection of the first Meeting House at Lexington, in 1662.

3. Jonathan Cutler, son of Thomas, was baptized at Watertown, Mass., June

17, 1688, and died at KiUingly, Conn., where an inventory of his estate
was ordered June 10, 1746. He married at Watertown, Aug. 17, 1710,
Abigail Bigelow. Nov. 5, 1709, he purchased of James Leavens, in
KiUingly, land lying near that of his cousin, Isaac, and "Five Mile
Run." This he sold for £53 May 18, 1710 and removed to Colchester,
Conn. In 1726, he was of BUlingham, Mass., where he sold to Samuel
Cutler of KiUingly (formerly of Salem) aU the right he possessed by
virtue of his being a proprietor of KiUingly. He had Abigail, Jonathan,
Beach, William, Stephen, Wyman.

4. Beach Cutler, son of Jonathan, was born at Colchester, Conn., July 4,

1716, baptized at Lexington, Oct. 20, 1717, and died at Plainfield, N. H.
He married successively AbigaU Hodges, May 14, 1746, at Pomfret,
Conn.; Miss Knight, probably of KiUingly, Conn.; and Miss Hall, of
Plainfield or Lebanon, N. H. Aug. 14, 1761, the Township of Plain-
field, N. H., was granted to Benj. Hutchins and fifty others, the most
of whom came from Connecticut and among whom was Beach Cutler.
Prior to this time he had resided in Pomfret, KiUingly and Plainfield.
He was a farmer. His chUdren were, Benjamin, William, Abigail,
Hodges, Knight, Anna and Perley.

5. Hodges Cutler, son of Beach, was born at Plainfield, Conn., July 27, 1752,

and died Feb. 4, 1857, aged 105? He moved to Plainfield, N. H., about
1756, and thence to Lebanon. He was a soldier in the Revolution, as
were also his brothers WiUiam, Benjamin and Knight. Children:
Joseph Beach born Dec. 22, 1779, died Dec. 18, 1861; Aodolphiis, died
1842; Anna (Mrs. Hinckley), died 1852; Jesse, born AprU 5, 1789, died
Jan. 21, 1878; Lucy, unmarried, age about 30, died 1823; Calvin, not

6. Jesse Cutler, son of Hodges, was born at Lebanon, N. H., April 5, 1789.

He married DeUa, daughter of WiUiam Huntington, Jiily 4, 1815 (at
Middlebury, Vt., I think, at least the family has Uved there since my
remembrance). He settled in Highgate, Vt., immediately after his mar-

riage, having previously spent a year or more there arranging for hia
new home. On May 29, 1827, Jesse Cutler raised the frame to a new
home which was afterwards the Old Hotel (having a dance hall with a
spring floor) . His son Horace was born same day. For some years, he
carried on the Carding and Cloth Dressing business in connection with
the lumber business, having purchased a saw mill with a valuable
water power at East Highgate, afterwards, April 12, 1844, sold out his
saw mill, moved to Highgate and carried on the Carding business there.
About 1836/7, he disposed of this property and settled on a farm known
as the "Old Homestead" and now owned by the heirs of his son Horace.
He was a prominent and highly respected citizen, in 1849, he represented
the town of Highgate in the General Assembly, was frequently chosen as
Selectman, and for many years served as Justice of the Peace. He died
Jan. 21, 1878, aged 89. Children: Delia M., born June 28, 1816, died
