PEDD'ER, James, agriculturist, born in Newport, Isle of Wight, England, 29 July, 1775; died in Roxbury, Massachusetts, 30 August, 1859. He came to this country about 1832 and engaged in the manufacture of sugar in Philadelphia. For seven years he conducted the "Farmers' Cabinet," an agricultural journal of great merit, and from 1844 until his death he edited the " Boston Cultivator." Several editions of his famous conversations, entitled "Frank," have been published, and " The Yellow Shoestrings" went through seventeen editions in London and several in this country. He published a "Report made to the Beet-Sugar Society of Philadelphia on the Culture in France of the Beet Root" (Philadelphia, 1836), and also wrote "The Farmer's Land Measure " (New York, 1854).
