He married, secondly, Anne, daughter of Sir John Weld, of Arnolds in Middlesex, and they had two sons.

His second son and eventual heir, John Cutts, was created Baron Cutts of Gowran in the peerage of Ireland in 1690, and died without issue in 1707, having sold Childerley to Felix Calvert in 1686.
