Arthur Cayley was born in England.


Arthur Cayley was the son of Sir George Cayley, the 4th Cayley baronet, and Philadelphia (Digby) Cayley. He was christened on 3 July 1739 at St. Michael Le Belfrey, York, Yorkshire[1]

He married Anne Eleanor Schulz in London in 1786.[2][3] He was a merchant with Russian interests and there was almost certainly a previous marriage ceremony in Russia as their son, another Arthur Cayley, was born in about 1776[4] and there is no indication of illegitimacy. If there was a ceremony in Archangel, Russia, where Arthur was a merchant for part of his life, it may well have been conducted by the British consul and there may have been no opportunity for a Church of England ceremony.

In 1790 he is recorded as a merchant with offices at 14 Cecil Street, London, England.[5] The Alumni Cantabrigienses entry for his son Arthur describes him as a merchant of Archangel, Russia.[6]

He died in 1818.[7]
