  • 'John Tuttle died intestate in May or June, 1663, leaving a widow Dorothy and three children. He was probably not far from forty-five years of age at his death. She was appointed administratrix of her husband's estate, and made return to the court June 30, 1663. Although cut off by death in the prime of life, soon after he settled in this wilderness, his personal property inventoried shows him to have been a well-to-do planter. The court decreed a distribution of the estate, reciting in its decree "yt the eldest daughter of the deceased is married and hath her portion already; that the youngest daughter is to have 15 pounds when she comes to the age of 18 years, or be dispossess of on marrying." The bulk of the property, consisting of real estate, was given to the only son then living, John,' "when he comes to 21 years of age." The widow Dorothy was taxed for several years after, but nothing further is known of her, nor is it known whether she married her husband in England or here. Children :
