  • 'JOHN TUTTLE of Ipswich.
  • 'Brother of Richard of Boston. The settlement at Ipswich, Mass., was begun in March, 1633, by John Winthrop, jr., (afterwards Gov. of Conn.) and twelve others; who were joined next year by Rev. Thomas Parker and one hundred others from Wiltshire, Eng. JOHN TUTTLE joined the settlement the same year that he arrived in the Planter, as appears by the town record in 1635; "a road four rods wide is reserved through JOHN TUTTLE's, 150 acres east of Mill river to the common." He was made a freeman March 13, 1639; Representative 1644. In 1651 he is called "Mr.," a way being reserved between "Mr. Tuttle's swamp and the ends of the lots."-- Felt's Hist. of Ipswich. March 13, 1650, JOHN TUTTELL of Ipswich, merchant, gave bond for (english pound)2000 to Daniel __ffaivax and Isaac Legay of London, merchants, to pay (english pound)1180 10s. in provisions and cattle before Nov., 1650. and he consigned to them goods, &c., value (english pound)812 3s. and a penny as per invoice signed by JOANNA his wife. The bond was discharged by payment in full in 1652 by Mrs. JOANNA TUTTLE. He went to Ireland about the time that the disheartened colonists at New Haven were negotiating for the purchase of the city of Galloway in Ireland for a future home. He established himself advantageously there and did not return. He d. at Carrickfergus, Dec. 30, 1656. His wife JOANNA followed him to Ireland in 1654. She was before m. to JOHN TUTTLE a widow Lawrence. The Dane pamphlet contains a facsimile of JOHN TUTTLE's autograph.

  • Ranking among the foremost of New England families, but belonging inseparably to the history and development of Connecticut s the" Tuttle family. Branches of the ancient English family, however, were established throughout the New England Colonies in the early part of the seventeenth century. None of these have attained the distinction and note of the Connecticut Tuttles. Scions of the house have wielded large power in the industrial and commercial growth of Connecticut, and have achieved notable ]ilaees in the jn-ofessions and in the divine calling. The early Tuttle family played a prominent part in the public life of the Connecticut Colony, and the name is found with great frequency in important places in early Colonial registers. The early Tuttles were leaders of men. and later generations have not relinguished the prestige of the early family. The Tuttles of today are an honored and notable race.
  • The surname Tuttle is of most remote antiquity, and its origin has been traced to the god Thoth or Toth on the Lower Nile in Egypt, vestiges of whose worship some antiquarians believe to have existed in early p]ngland. This would naturally give rise to numerous places dedicated to the worship of the god. At all events, we find throughout England "Totehills," which at the date of authentic history were hills with a good lookout against the enemy's approach. The eminent authority. Charles Wareing Bardsley. in his "Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames." states the origin of the surname to have been in the ancient Totehill, and makes no mention of an earlier origin in the worship of Thoth. In support of this, he draws attention to the fact that we still use the verb "tout" or "toat" in the sense of spying about.
  • When the adoption of surnames spread over England. Toathill. Tootle, Tothill, Tootol, Tottle, Tootehill, Tuthill, Toutill and Tuttle appeared as surnames which had their origin in the place name "Totehill" and we find instances of the name in the very early registers. The first appearance of the name in Colonial America is in the year 16.35. Numerous immigrants left the mother country and were" the founders of large families. On the good ship "Planter," in lGo5. came John, Richard and William Tuttle. from the parish of St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England, bringing with them their families. 'JOHN TUTTLE, who is recorded as a mercer, aged thirty-nine years, according to the passenger list of the "Planter," settled in Ipswich; he was in Ireland in 1(354, and probably died there, for his wife went to Carrickfergus, and wrote on April G, 1G57, that h.; died on December 30, 1656.

  • The Tuttle story is one of my qualifying stories for Rootsweb's International Black Sheep Society
  • After checking out the citations that people sent me, as much as I could get ahold of them, mostly TAG, and a couple of citations, I never did get ahold of the Prindle book, I found that documents such as wills establish that the Tuttles were of Northampton. My sources, as well as a summary of the disproven roots cited in older Tuttle genealogies in the United States, are below.
  • Ringstead Tuttles
  • This is the true Tuttle lineage. The material is a little confusing.
  • Here is the version I put together;
  • Richard Tootill, of Woodford, co Northampton, born abat 1530, m Elizabeth _____. Wayne Barnes identifies her as Elizabeth Lyncoln. Source? Price has he d 1587/88 Woodford. Sam has he d 1589/90 in Peterborough. Jacobus cited his will for March 1589 as the date of his death. I infer there might have been more than one Richard Tootill. Jacobus has him supervised will of Richard Beare of Woodford, 3 Nov 1579, witness will of Elizabeth Lyncoln, 1556. Atleast we know there were Lyncolns around, and again, they were probably closely related to the Tuttle family.
  • Third Generation
    • Thomas Tootill, d abt 1640 will dated 14 Jun 1639, proved 12 Dec 1640, he lived in Holcott and then in Woodford, both in County Northampton. He married Anne ____. The stuff I put about him on this page yesterday was a mistake; the people I named as his wife and children were Richard's (the father of Simon). His will names 3 sons and makes his second son, Robert, executor with his wife, Jacobus thinks because his son John was the John Tuttle of the Planter who was married to Joan Antrobus Lawrence and died in Carrickfergus, Ireland. Jacobus bases that on the fact that this John was teh right age to have been the John Tuttle, and on the mistaken belief, based on White's papers, that Simon had no son named John.
      • Symon b Engl D Engl
      • 'John bapt Holcot 4 Jun 1596
      • Robert b abt 1598 or bef 18 Mar 1598/99, Holcott, Northampton, bapt 18 Mar 1598/99 in HOlcott, d Engl
      • Abigail bapt 24 Nov 1628 d young abt 1631
  • These baptisms and their place and dates all from Jacobus, who says that Thomas lived first in Holcott and then in Woodford, which would explain why his children were born in Holcott, though I don't have a source on how he knows this, and he appears to cite Dawes-Gates as his source on the children's baptisms.
  • I don't know if these dates and the place are based on confusion with John who is actually the son of Simon, who was really baptized in Holcott, on 4 June 1596, according to Greene! That John also had no brother named Robert, who, it appears, was bapt in Holcot, too! Atleast, not named in Simon's will. One would think the baptismal record identified the parents. But I gather that neither Jacobus nor Greene have seen the baptismal record of this John christened in Holcot. Since it appears not many of the Tuttle family lived in Holcot, this supports John of the Planter was Thomas's son. Unless the confusion comes in at the point of which John Tuttle went to Hertfordshire and married Joan Antrobus Lawrence!
