    Biography
    •      (Thomas Cutler, A.B., Yale College, graduated 1771.)
           Thomas Cutler, fifth child and second son of Deacon Thomas Cutler, of Western, now Warren, Worcester County, MA, and grandson of Thomas and Sarah (Stone) Cutler of Lexington, MA, was born in Western, on November 11, 1752. His mother, Sarah Reade, of Burlington, MA, was a widow Fiske at the time of her marriage to Deacon Cutler.  She was again left a widow in November, 1760, and married Elisha Allis, of Hatfield, MA, in January, 1765.  By this marriage her son became the step- brother of Elisha Allis (Yale 1769).
           He returned to Hatfield after graduation, but on the approach of the Revolution sympathized strongly with the British, joined them in Boston, and proceeded to Nova Scotia, and was proscribed and banished by an Act of the General Court in October, 1778.  He settled in Guysborough, at the eastern extremity of Nova Scotia, where he became an influential citizen.  He was Town Clerk for many years, and is said also to have held judicial office.
    Biography
    • !"The Tory Papers" (PANS MG2, #710, bk 18)
           Thomas Cutler resided in Brooklyn, Long Island, practicing there a lucrative legal profession.  He was a true Loyalist, and, feeling that he could not live under the United States flag, he very soon after the Declaration of Independence, about 1780, determined to live under the rule of the British Crown, and, gathering a few movable articles and such funds as he could hastily gather together, with his newly-married wife and a few loyal friends, he set sail for the nearest British Colony under the management of Captain Molison, whose name will appear later.
           The first land made was Port Mouton, ten miles from Liverpool.  He and the small gathering of Loyalists built a few houses, but shortly afterwards a fire burned all their buildings; and this small, distressed colony, feeling that this portion of Nova Scotia was barren and uninviting, gathered their little stock saved from the fire, sailed along the coast and fianlly landed in Guysboro' with the primeval forest around them and tribes of Indians menacing them.  To protect themselves they landed on one of the Islands in the harbor, where they built shacks; and, after making peace with the Indians, they built houses, very simple and small, on the mainland.
           Thomas Cutler selected the head of the hharbor there built a more commodious house, and gradually increased the practice of his profession, and in after years took students into his office, one of which secured the title of Sir; viz., Sir William Campbell.  Thomas Cutler gradually accumulated wealth, becoming the leading man in that community, venerated and respected by all socially and professionally, and died well advanced in years.
