I tried looking for Hamdon instead of Hamden and found the following:
Anna Holyoke Cutts b. abt 1835 North Hartland, Vermont, USA m. Able Trumbull Howard on 21 Aug 1861 . . . Also, her father Hamden [Hamdon] was born in New Hampshire, probably Portsmouth.” [Dale Harguess – email@example.com] Anna was named after her father's mother Anna Holyoke Cutts (b. abt 1768 d. 28 Aug 1788 (age 20 yrs) bur. Old North Cemetery (“Old North Burying Ground”), Portsmouth, New Hampshire).
Her father was Judge Hamdon Cutts b. probably Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA “of Brattleboro, Vermont” “Edward Cutts, eldest son of Samuel, married Mary Carter, granddaughter of Sir William Purple [Pepperell?], who owned so much land that is was said he could ride thirty miles without going off from his property. Their son, who was Judge Hamdon Cutts of Brattleboro, Vt., was the next owner of the portraits, and then his son, Edward, came into possession of them. They have passed down through five generations.” [BLACKBURN’S PORTRAITS – Something About the Companion Pieces of ‘Mr. and Mrs. Cutts’ in Exhibition at the Vose Gallery; York(?), Maine Newspaper Column – Art: The Fine Arts]
I have a lot more information on this line of the Cutts family if you are interested.
