I have in my tree a Benjamin Cutler from London in that era but have little info other than a name and that he died 1837 in Bishopsgate, London. So not the same person, but possibly related (cousin?). Mine because associated with the Church of New Jerusalem ("New Church") according to baptismal records, was married to Sarah Green. They had a son, Benjamin, in addition to at least 3 daughters.
Any connections?

MY BENJAMIN'S FATHER WAS A WILLIAM - THIS NAME COMES OUT FURTHER DOWN THE FAMILY TREE, BUT I THINK WE NEED WILLIAM'S FATHER TO BE A BENJAMIN OR A SAMUEL TO SEE IF THERE'S A COUSIN CONNECTION. THE FACT THAT BENJAMIN WAS RICH ENOUGH TO HAVE PORTRAITS PAINTED OF HIMSELF AND HIS WIFE HAS ME WONDERING....
MAYBE HE WAS FIRST GENERATION IN LONDON? I'M A N.Z. CUTLER, YOU SHOULD SEE MY FAMILY TREE TO SEE THE SKELETON IN THE AUSSIE CUTLERS' CUPBOARD!!!!

Well there you go, my Benjamin Cutler was a porter by trade, so I don't think we're on to the same family!

Not too sure about that!! It now looks as if the portraits may have been painted by a talented granddaughter in Australia.
Benjamin Cutlers were extremely rare in U.K. so I don't want to give up on a connection. I've sent to Sydney for B.R.C's (and his wife's) Death Certificates in the hope that parents' names and places of birth are included; as they usually are on N.Z. death certificates - I'm hoping Aussie ones are as good!!! I want to pin down his father William as I suspect the family tree may go back to Hampshire before London.

There's another worry though! Maybe the Benjamin came from Benjamin Disraeli who was P.M. of England at some stage around then!!
My B.R.C's father's wife looks to have possibly come from the Dockyard area of London - East London - so that's narrowing the gap with your ancestors-but I'm hoping his death cert. will give me some clues.
