CUTLER, Benjamin Clarke, clergyman, born in Roxbury, Massachusetts, 6 February 1798; died in Brooklyn, New York, 10 February 1863. He was for some time a clerk in the mercantile house of Messrs. Andrews & Co., Boston. He was graduated at Brown in 1822, studied theology under the direction of Bishop Griswold, and by him was ordained deacon in November 1822. His first settlement was in Quincy, Massachusetts, where he remained about seven years, but left on account of failing health, and spent the winter of 1830 in Savannah. He returned to New England on horseback, and subsequently passed a year as rector of the Episcopal Church in Leesburg, Virginia. In the summer of 1832 he took charge of the first City mission of the Episcopal Church in New York; and in April 1833, accepted a call to St. Anne's Church, in Brooklyn, where he spent the last thirty years of his life. In 1835 he received the degree of D. D. from Columbia. He left a volume of sermons (Philadelphia, 1857).
