About Benjamin Tutt

Captain Benjamin Tutt was an upcountry planter and Justice of the Peace in 1776. His wife, Barbara Stallnaker Tutt, owned 37 slaves in the 1790 census. Captain Tutt was an officer in the Fifth Provincial Regiment which became, on the declaration of independence, part of the South Carolina Continental Line. 
A letter from Benjamin Tutt to the Governor of South Carolina is on file in the South Carolina Archives at Columbia. It discusses some of his services in the Revolution. Edmund Holleman in 1824 petitioned the legislature for some back army pay owed Captain Tutt for his services in the American Revolution, and the legislature granted it. At that time Edmund stated that he was “intermarried with Katherine Tutt, the only heir known to Captain Benjamin Tutt who commanded one of the Inde- pendent Companies. (Reference: AA 7970, pp. 7Tb., 8T.) The duty of the Independent Companies was to guard the frontier. Benjamin Tutt had to help finance his Company himself.
