Tuttle - Tuthill
Family Lines in Colonial America
|The "Planter" Tuttles of Massachusetts & Connecticut|
|The small barque Planter, captained by Nicholas Trarice, left from London, England early in April of 1635 and arrived safely in Boston, Massachusetts on Sunday, 7-Jun-1635. Among the passengers were Isabel (Wells) Tuttell of Ringstead, Northampton, widow of Symon Tuttell, in the company of her three married sons, John, Richard, and William -- making up an extended family of 17 Tuttells and 5 other relations (three Lawrence children from the first marriage of Joan (Antrobus) Tuttell; Joan's mother, Joan (Arnold) Antrobus; and Ann Wells).|
|John & Mary Tuthill of Boston, Massachusetts|
Tuthill and his wife Mary
lived in Boston from the mid-1600's through the early
1700's. John was very likely from Devonshire, England and
related to the Tuthill family there, but
I have not found a record of his arrival in Massachusetts.
John and Mary Tuthill had
three daughters, Mary, Sarah,
and Susannah, who married into prominent
Boston families, and one son,
Tuttle, who served Boston for many
years in a variety of public offices.
Zechariah did not marry, so this branch of the Tuthill name
ended with his death in January of 1722.
This family provides the strongest circumstantial evidence of a link between the Tuthill family of Devonshire, England and the Totehyll - Tothill - Tuttell families of Northamptonshire, based on heraldry. The coats of arms and crests granted separately to this John Tuthill and to William Tuttell of Ringstead and Boston are strikingly similar.
|Tuttle Families of New Hampshire, Maine, & Vermont|
|The 240-ton barque Angel
Gabriel, captained by Robert Andrews, left
London, England late in May of 1635. It was wrecked 15-Aug-1635 offshore
of Pemaquid Point, Maine, in "a great storm", perhaps a
hurricane. The ship's captain and many of the passengers were rescued, including
John Tuttle, born c1618 in Devonshire, England, who later settled on
a land grant in Dover Neck, New Hamsphire. For 150 years, all of
the Tuttles in New Hampshire were descended from him.
Descendants of "Shipwreck" John Tuttle have owned and operated Tuttle's Red Barn, a roadside farm shop on Dover Neck that is advertised as the oldest continuously operating family farm in the United States.
|Tuttle Families of Maryland, Virginia, & North Carolina|
Tuttle, born circa 1660 in England, arrived
in Maryland in 1680 on the ship Michaut's
Conerd, captained by Carles
or Carlis Carly, according to a
passenger list in the Maryland Hall of Colonial Records
on the St. Johns campus in Annapolis, Maryland.
Many of the Tuttle families of Maryland, Virginia, North
Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennesee are his descendants.
[There are two colonial-era British ships, the Merchant's Consent and the Merchant's Content, which could have been the actual ship's name. I have not been able to collect passenger information for any of the three. - DBT]
|Tuthill Families of Southold, Long Island|
was baptised 28-Jun-1612 in Tharston,
County Norfolk, England and came to Hingham, Massachusetts
perhaps as early as 1634.
Henry moved in 1644 to Southold, Long Island on the "North Fork" that is across the sound from the mouth of the Connecticut River, where his older brother John Tuthill served as constable. Descendants of Henry and John established a long line of families named both Tuthill and Tuttle.
