    1800. — Benjamin Welles died in Boston, 21 July, 1860, aged 78 years. He was son of Samuel and Isabella (Pratt) Welles, and was born in Boston, 13 August, 1781. He studied for college in part at the Boston Latin School, under Master Samuel Hunt (H.C. 1765), and during one year with Rev. Thomas Prentiss, of Medfield, Mass. (H.C. 1766). On leaving college, he studied law for some time with Hon. Levi Lincoln, of AVorcester, Mass. (H.C. 1772), and afterwards with Hon. Harrison Gray Otis, of Boston (H.C. 1783). In 1803, he went to England, and pursued his professional studies there. In 1804, he joined his classmate, Washington Allston, in Paris. A few months afterwards, they went together to Switzerland, and passed St. Gothard in their carriage, being the first persons who had traversed it. They went to Lombardy, and by Lake Como to Rome, passing through Bologna, where Allston examined the great paintings of the Caracci and other great masters. They next went to Florence. The plague, prevailing in Leghorn, detained them at Rome two months, during which time Allston employed himself in painting. At Rome Mr. Welles staid about two months, and Mr. Allston a year. Mr. Welles returned to Boston in 1804. In 1807, he, in company with Stephen Higginson, William Parsons, Thomas H. Perkins, and others, engaged in an iron-mining company in Vergennes, Vt. In 1812, Mr. Welles was appointed sole agent of the establishment, and took up his residence in Vergennes. He met Lieut. M'Donough at Burlington, in a small gunboat, strapping a block, and made an engagement to supply the iron and cannonballs for the ships, which were all built at Vergennes for the lake-service; the iron-work amounting to $47,000. In 1816, he became a partner with Hon. John Welles (H.C. 1782), who was his cousin, in the auxiliary house in Boston to the bankinghouse of Welles and Co., of Paris. This connection continued twenty-eight years, until the death of Samuel Welles (H.C. 1796), which took place in Paris, 31 August, 1841.

    He married, 1 August, 1815, Mehitable Stoddard Sumner, eldest daughter of Gov. Increase Sumner (H.C. 1767) ; by whom he had two daughters, Elizabeth and Georgiana, and one son, Benjamin Samuel. His wife died 31 January, 1826; and he married, for his second wife, Susan Codman, daughter of William Codman, Esq., of New York, by whom he had one daughter, Susan; who married, 14 January, 1856, Russell Sturgis, jun., of Boston.

    Mr. Welles was highly respected in the community as a gentleman of the old school. He left a very large estate.
