About Samuel Cabot, Jr.

Samuel Cabot Jr. was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1784, the son of Samuel Cabot and Sally Barrett. In 1806, after a couple of years familiarizing himself with the East Indies trade, he set up business in Philadelphia, in partnership with Samuel Hazard. In 1808 he returned to Boston and married Eliza Perkins. Together, they had seven sons, including Edward Clarke Cabot (b. 1818), later an architect and artist; James Elliot Cabot (b. 1821), who became a philosopher and author; and Samuel Cabot III, a surgeon and ornithologist.

After marrying Eliza, Samuel then went into business with his brother Joseph and with John W. Perit, taking charge of the Philadelphia-based partnership's Boston office.[3]

He entered the China Trade in 1817, in yet another family partnership, with his Perkins in-laws. He retired from business in 1838, one of the richest merchants in New England.
