About David Buttolph

David was probably named for his aunt Abigail Buttolph's first husband, David Saywell, and was doubtless among the unnamed children of his father baptized at First Church, Boston, in October 1675. He accompanied his parents in their peregrinations to Salem and back to Boston, and then to Wethersfield, CT, but died in Simsbury, CT. He was a shoemaker of Cordwainer.

In TAG, there is a lengthy discussion of the work done to identify David's wife, and finally McCracken determines:

I now think it highly probably that David Buttolph's wife was Mary Buck, dauhgter of Henry and Elizabeth (Churchill) Buck. It will have been noted that David's brother George married mary's sister elizabeth. The marriage of two brothers to two sisters is hardly a difficult phenomenon to accept. We shall see that David and mary had five children who married five children of nathaniel Holcombe by his wife martha Buell. In a period when population is sparse, it is entirely ntural for young people to marry the siblings of their in-laws.

David Buttolph build in Wethersfield a house which has in recent years been restored to approximately its original state and is now open as a museum known as the Buttolph-Williams House. Sgt. David Buttolph was born on 7 May 1669. He was the son of Lt. John Buttolph and Hannah Gardener. Sgt. David Buttolph married Mary Buck after 14 November 1694. Sgt. David Buttolph died on 5 April 1717 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT, at age 47.
