William Dupee was a prosperous wool merchant in the firm Nichols & Dupee. Her parents were first cousins once removed. In 1882, the family lived in a new stone mansion designed for them by Peabody & Stearns at 400 Beacon Street in Chestnut Hill, Newton. The house was later the home of Mary Baker Eddy, founder of the Christian Science Church, and is still owned by the church today. In 1895, the Dupees moved to a new Chestnut Hill house (still standing) at 41 Middlesex Road on the border with Brookline. Williamís partner, George Nichols, lived across the street. Also nearby was the estate of Leverett Saltonstall. His son Endicott Peabody Saltonstall and Elizabeth Dupee were married in 1898 and lived in the Saltonstall mansion at 245 Chestnut Hill Road. (The house is still in the Saltonstall family.)

Endicott Peabody was a lawyer and onetime Middlesex Country District Attorney who died in 1922. Elizabeth served at one time as a member of the Republican state committee.
