In the mid 1800's, Hugh Cudmore, the first descendant to come to Prince Edward Island, went to Moncton to visit relatives. While he was there, he came across an organization known as the Salvation Army. He was so impressed with the work of the Salvation Army that when he returned to Prince Edward Island, he wrote to Moncton and suggested that the Salvation Army start the same type of organization on the Island. He invited them to stay with his wife and family. He eventually built a bunkhouse on his farm in Winsloe for them to live, and this is how the Salvation Army came to be on Prince Edward Island. Hugh and Rebecca Cudmore received a donation of clothing from the Ladies Benevolent Society. This was recorded in the Royal Gazette dated March 28, 1843.

Some members of the Cudmore Family married into local families such as the Carrs, Younkers, and Fords. Many of their descendants still live in the Winsloe area.

Cudmore families live in Winsloe / Brackley area engaged in farming. One of the original Cudmore homesteads is now a tourist home called "Chumleigh Tourist Home."

One interesting thing about the Dyment (Diamond) family history is that a lot of lawyers come from that family. John Diamond in Charlotteown, a local lawyer can probably trace his line back to Hugh Cudmore and Rebecca Dyment as well. William Cudmore's mother was Rebecca Diamond and he also married a Diamond (Phoebe). They must have been distant cousins.

The first Cudmore family immigrated to Prince Edward Island from Chumleigh, Devon, England in May of 1841 when Hugh Cudmore and Rebecca Dyment or Diamond came from Devon to PEI. They traveled to PEI with five of their nine children, two of Hugh's brothers (George and Richard), along with Rebecca's family, the Dyments (Diamond). Both George and Richard continued on to Ontario while Hugh and his family settled in North Winsloe area and farmed land leased from John Hodges Winsloe.

Rebecca was clearly a Dyment and there were many Dyments in Devon who went back to the 1400's also many on PEI early. I believe Phoebe Diamonds desc. from a cousin of Rebecca D. Cudmore. The Diamonds (Dyments) had many early lawyers in their line. It appears the Carr family was also from Devon.

On May 3, 1860, Hugh Cudmore purchased land (Lot 24) from Thomas Simpson and continued to farm while three of the sons, William, John, and George leased land (Lot 33) from Alfred Winsloe and also farmed.

A report from Kit Cudmore Knap, 01 Mar 2000, said that George and Richard were not brothers to Hugh but may be second cousins.

Some members of the Cudmore Family married into local families such as the Carrs, Younkers, and Fords. Many of their descendants still live in the Winsloe area. At present, there are still Cudmore families living in Winsloe/Brackley area engaged in farming. One of the original Cudmore homesteads is now a tourist home called "Chumleigh Tourist Home."


An interesting thing about the Dyment (Diamond) family history is that a lot of lawyers come from that family. There is a John Diamond in Charlottetown, a local lawyer, who can probably trace his line back to Hugh Cudmore and Rebecca Dyment as well. William Cudmore's mother was Rebecca Diamond and he also married a Diamond (Phoebe). They must have been distant cousins.
