Cunnington and Lee family papers by Cunnington family( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection primarily contains correspondence among Anne, Elizabeth, and Mary Cunnington, daughters of the antiquarian William H. Cunnington (1754-1810) of Heytesbury, Wiltshire, England. Some of the letters are written to each other and some to other relatives, friends, or business associates. The collection also contains the correspondence of William P. Cunnington (1804-1871), who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a medical degree in 1837, and was leader of the orchestra at the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia. The familial connection between William H. Cunnington and William P. Cunnington is not clear from the contents of the collection. In addition to the family letters-- which are concerned with family issues such as health, the settling of estates, and travel-- the collection contains poems written by, and apparently copied by, the families. The poems are primarily concerned with love and death. The collection also contains a small number of financial documents including estate documents, business ledgers, and receipts for rentals and purchases. The correspondence between William P. Cunnington and his wife, Jane Cook Cunnington, are from a period when William P. was working with an orchestra in Baltimore and Richmond and depict the challenges of spouses living apart. William P. Cunnington writes in one of the letters: "I must confess my dear Jane I am very much dissatisfied with your letters. They are both so very brief - &, with the exception of the all-important intelligence of your health & the children, they contain very little of the kind of writing I always wish to have from you ..." At this time, William P. Cunnington was working for a man named "Marshall," most likely Ethelbert A. Marshall, a theater owner and manager who started out at the Walnut Street Theatre in 1840 and owned theaters in Baltimore and New York by the mid-1840s. Marshall later opened Philadelphia's Academy of Music. There are also a significant number of letters written to Ann Cunnington Lee (daughter of William H. Cunnington and wife of Gregory Lee), largely from family members including her sister Mary, as well as John Lee, Mary Ann Everett, and Isabella Lee. Letters discuss home matters; family issues; the legacy left to Ann Lee's son William, as well as a legacy left to Anne by her aunt, Susan Meares; and immigration to the United States. The correspondence is addressed to Anne while she and her husband were still living in England, and then afterwards addressed to her when they immigrated to Mount Pleasant, New Jersey, sometime after 1830. Anne and Gregory Lee encouraged other family members to immigrate to the United States, including Anne's sister, Mary
