  • He d. May 8, 1610. For facsimile of his autograph, see Drake's Hist. of Boston, p. 243. Oct. 31 1642, Widow Touthill had liberty granted her to remove her windmill into the Fort, which must be placed as Capt. Gibbons direct, and next yr. "the highway already beun for Wid. Tuttell's windmill to the fort, should be laid out 20 feet wide." Anne Tuttle in 1650 had house and lot in Boston and farm at Rumney Marsh.......
  • Probably Richard Tuttle had no other children than those who came with him in the Planter. The wid. Dorothy Bill* lived at his house and was probably his sister. By order of the court he was to be responsible for her "or anything about her." supposed to mean that he would suport her and her children.

    • John Shatwell's Pasture
  • John Shatswell received large grants from the Town, including the rather indefinite, "beyond Muddy River, next the Common fence within, a parcell of ground betwixt the River & the Land of the sayd John 25 acres without the fence adjoining thereto uppon considerations that he lay down 20 acres, granted to him, on this side the River ..." The Common fence evidently left the road side at Muddy river, and was located at some distance from the highway.

  • 16 acre pasture beyond Muddy river, "if Richard shall not marry with Rebecca Tuttle, which is now intended, my wife Joanna shall have her being in the house, if he die without issue, the estate is to be divided between my brother and sister's children that are here in New England, brother Theophilus, brother Corwin, sister Webster."
    • signed Feb. 11, 1646 proved 30 March, 1647. (Ips. Deeds 1:22).
  • Richard Shatswell married Rebecca Tuttle, and children were born to them. He died in 1694 and by will, bequeathed to his son John, with other gifts, "the outside pasture he now enjoys next the Rowley road"; to daughter, Johana L80, to daughter, Sarah(1) in case she quits her interest in that 2 acres marsh her late husband improved--," and the rest to his son Richard.
    • signed June 28, proved Aug. 6, 1694 (Pro. Rec. 303:238).
  • John Shatswell sold the pasture, part to Jeremiah Dow, and 10 acres to Francis Wainwright, bounded north and northeast by the Common Fields fence, east and southeast, by the land formerly sold to Jeremiah Dow, with the privilege of a brook running at the east end of said land, with all trees, timber, mines, minerals etc. Oct. 1, 1700 (16:3). He seems to have retained a portion, as a disagreement arose between John and Richard over their father's will and John agreed, "my brother Richard shall enjoy a highway of one rod wide through my pasture at Muddy River for ye driving of cattle," having "bars next ye common." March 27, 1711 (24:40).

    • The John Tuttle Farm.
  • When the lots were divided in May, 1726, the farm now owned by Mr. Edmund Wile, was owned and occupied by William Tuttle. In 1641, John Tuttle laid down land on the South side of the river "in consideration of 30 acres of marsh and a parcel of land on both sides of Muddy River." (Town Record). His ownership of land in this vicinity may be due to this grant. John Tuttle was brother of Richard Tuttle, who settled in Rumney-Marsh, now Chelsea, in 1635, whose family became large and influential through many generations.(1) He was living in Ireland in 1653, but his wife, Joanna, remained in Ipswich. Before she sailed to join her husband she made an agreement, dated March 18, 1653-4, with RICHARD SHATSWELL, that he would pay 24 each year in corn, also 2 and one cow, for the rental of her house and land, "also all her meadow, marsh and broken up ground within the common fence."(2) Her son-in-law, George Giddings, who had married her daughter, Jane, and Joseph Jewett were appointed her attorneys. A few years, later, several lawsuits arose concerning the ownership of a mare, which was claimed by her son, Simon, and later, for damages against SHATSWELL for his neglect or wanton injury of the property and non-payment of rent. These law suits were the occasion of the filing of several letters from Mrs. Tuttle, which possess a quaint interest as illustrations of the letters and the literary style of the period, and shed much light on the family history.

  • These letters of this heavy-hearted woman reveal painful family secrets, the selfish greed of the sons, John and Simon, the overreaching of the trusted family attorney, the decay of the estate and keen parental anguish. The Tuttle homestead was on High Street, adjoining the Shatswell and Fowler homesteads, but these letters indicate that there were also farm buildings on Comfort hill or on the road to Muddy river.
