      CUTLER, Edmund,

      Founder of Family in America.

      Edmund Cutler, of Woodhouse, in the Liberty of Bowland and West Riding of Yorkshire, England, was born about the year 1655. He and his brother John Cutler were members of Settle Monthly Meeting of Friends (Quakers) in Yorkshire, when they prepared to remove to Pennsylvania, and received a certificate from Settle Meeting, addressed to the Friends Meeting in Philadelphia, dated Fourth month [June] 3, 1685:

      ["]From our Monthly meeting at Settle in ye County of Yorke this third day of ye Fourth month [June] 1685 unto the monthly meeting of Friends in ye City of Philadelphia in pensilvania in America or else where to whome these may concerne, Salutation.

      Edmund and John Cutler sailed from Liverpool on the ship "Rebecca," commanded by Captain James Skinner, which arrived in the Delaware, Eighth month [October] 31, 1685. The original record of their arrival reads :

      ["]Edmund Cutler of Slateburn [sic; should be Slaidburn] in Bowland in Yorkshire webster, came in the ship the Rebecca of Liverpool the Mr James Skiner, arrived with his wife Isabel Cutler in this river the 31st day of the 8th M. [October] 1685. Children, Elizabeth born the 14th of the 3d Mo. 1680; Thomas born the 16th of the 9 Mo. [November] 1681; William, born the 16th of the 10th Mo. [December] 1682.

      One of the difficulties encountered by the early settlers in Pennsylvania, was the lack of assistants to work on the farms and plantations. Many of the emigrants like John and Edmund Cutler, brought servants with them. These so-called servants were often persons of equal standing with their employers. This was especially true among the Quakers. Those who had means to pay for the passage of servants frequently brought friends and neighbors not so prosperous. Additional grants of lands were made to those who imported others to promote the settling of the province.

      Edmund and John Cutler settled in Bucks county; their certificate is preserved in the records of Middletown Monthly Meeting of Friends. Edmund was accompanied to Pennsylvania by his wife Isabel, to whom he was married in England before 1680. He died in Bucks county, Twelfth month [February] 2, 1694-5.

      Ellen Cutler, daughter of Edmund and Isabel Cutler, was married to Jeremiah Bartholomew in 1716, as shown by the minutes of Middletown Meeting:

      ["]At our Monthly Meeting in Middletown the 6th day of the 10th Month [December] 1716. - At this Meeting Jeremiah Bartholomew and Ellin Cutler appeared and declared their Intentions of taking each other in Marriage this being the first time Robert Heaton And John Stackhouse are appointed to enquire concerning his clearness from other women on that account and make Report to the next Monthly Meeting. And the said Ellin being Executrix to William Cutler deceased this Meeting appoints Robert Heaton and John Stackhouse to see that matter settled and make Report likewise.

      ["]At our Monthly Meeting in Middletown the 3d. day of the 11th Month [January] 1716[/7]. At this Meeting Jeremiah Bartholomew and Ellin Cutler declared their Intentions of Marriage with each other and this being the second time the friends Appointed to enquire into his Clearness do Report that they do finde nothing but that he is clear from all other women upon the account of Marriage. And that the accompts concerning the Executorship is also settled to their satisfaction. Therefore this Meeting doth permitt them to Marry when they see meet in the Truth, and Robert Heaton and John Routledge are appointed to see it done decently and make Report to the next Monthly Meeting.

      ["]At our Monthly Meeting in Middletown, the 7th day of the 12 th Month [February] 1716[/7].

      ["]John Routledge being one of the friends appointed to see Jeremiah Bartholomew's Marriage decently accomplished doth Report that care was taken and nothing appeared but what was orderly in the accomplishment thereof.["]
