Cuthbert, Hayhurst

Cuthbert, Hayhurst an English minister of the Society of Friends, was born in Yorkshire about 1632, and was among the first in that county who embraced the principles of the Quakers. Soon after reaching his majority he became an accredited minister. More than once during the next few years he was subjected to great hardship on account of his religious opinions, being several times thrown into prison. In 1682 he accompanied William Penn to America, and is said to have been "an instrument, in the divine hand, of comfort and consolation to his brethren under their new circumstances." He died at his residence in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, in January 1683. See Bowden, Hist. of the Friends in America, 2:106. (J. C.S.)
