John Haley Bellamy was born in 1836 in the historic Pepperrell Mansion in Kittery Maine to Charles Gerrish and Francis "Fanny" (Keen) Bellamy. John started his career at the age 21 working in Boston with the well-known ship's carver Laban Beecher. In the 1860's John's career really started to take off and he was commissioned to make a number of objects featuring Masonic symbols, Knights of Columbus emblems and Grand Army of the Republic insignia. The Bellamy eagle is what he is most known for as he created a great number of them. These eagles were all similar and yet unique, and showcased his talent as a woodcarver. Today these eagles are highly collectible and have become extremely valuable. Perhaps the most famous is the figurehead John carved in 1880/1881 for USS Lancaster. John managed to outlive his parents and all of his siblings, passing away April 6, 1914.
