The Cuthbert family was a family that lived in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island.

About the familyEdit

The Cuthbert family was a particularly quiet and shy family, as evidenced by Mr. Cuthbert, the builder of Green Gables (who chose to build Green Gables far away from Avonlea's main road) and in his son Matthew, who rarely went out of town to buy anything. As a result, the Cuthberts were not very known because of their shy and quiet nature.
