Excerpt from The Life and Works of John Singleton Copley: Founded on the Work of Augustus Thorndike Perkins

It is proposed in the following Memoir to exemplify the life of John Singleton Copley by his signed and dated pictures, and also to correct certain errors which have been made by former writers as to his opportunities for early study.

The commonly received tradition is, that he had no instruction in his early youth, and one writer evidently thinks that Boston at that time was a mere trading post.

In regard to the genealogical portions of this work, the writer has been obliged to depend on family tradition to a great extent, as the best authority to be obtained under the circumstances, although he is aware how little reliance is to be placed upon it.

He has also observed the difference in the spelling of various family names; in this respect he has not attempted to decide which may be right, but has entered them in their order as they came from the hands of his informants.
