Peter Cross was the son of a freeman of the Drapers' Company and was probably born in London. It is not known how Cross learned miniature painting, but early in his career he won a number of important commissions, and in 1678 succeeded Nicholas Dixon as limner-in-ordinary (miniature painter) to the king.
