The vessel was wrecked at Pemaquid, on the coast of Maine, Aug. 15, 1635. He went first to Ipswich, Mass. In 1640 his name appears among the first settlers of Dover, where he received lot No. 7 of the 20 acre lots. There were 24 of these 20 acre allotments laid out to as many persons, and that of JOHN TUTTLE is the only on of the 24 that is now and always has been owned by descendants of the first grantee.

  • 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,2 "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 :

  • (I) John Tuttle, the ancestor of the New Hampshire family, settled in Dover between 1633 and 1640. It is not known that he was connected with the brothers who came in the "Planter", although there is a tradition that he had a brother who settled in Connecticut. Also it is said that he came to Dover from Wales, while another report has it that he came from the western part of England. Most of the families who settled at Dover between 1633 and 1640 were from the west of England, and "were of good estates, and of some account for religion", so it is likely that he came from that part of England, but no proof has been found. The first mention of him in Dover is in 1640, when his name was on a list of the principal citizens of that place, on a protest against the plan of Underhill to place Dover under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts. Those who signed this paper are thought to have been the royalists and Church of England men who did not favor the Puritans of Massachusetts, but rather favored the views of Mason and Gorges. John Tuttle's home was situated on the east side of Dover Neck, about forty rods southeast of what is now Henderson's Field. He owned eight acres of land there, and the land is still in possession of descendants. He also owned thirty acres of the "400 upland on the Great Bay", and had a grant of land from the town which was laid out to his son, Judge Tuttle, in 1706. He was a well-to-do farmer. He died intestate in May or June, 1663, probably about forty-five years of age. His widow was appointed administratrix on his estate, and she made return to the court, June 30, 1663.
  • He married Dorothy —— , who survived him several years. Children : Daughter, married before 1663, seems to have married Captain Philip Cromwell and if so her name was Elizabeth ; Thomas, accidentally killed by the fall of a tree when a boy ; John, mentioned below ; Dorothy, married Captain Samuel Tebbets.

  • John Tuttle, immigrant ancestor of the Tuttle family of New Hampshire, was born in England, in 1618. The English spelling is Tuthill and Tothill, but in this line the American families since the first few generations have spelt the surname Tuttle. There is good reason to believe that the American family springs from the old Devonshire family, England, the coat-of-arms of which is : Az. on a bend ar. cotised or, a. lion passant sable. The crest : On a mount vert a Cornish chough proper, in its beak a branch of olive, fructed, or.
  • John, Richard and William Tuttle, with their families, all came in the ship "Planter." in 1635, to New England. William settled in New Haven, Richard in Boston, and John in Ipswich. What connection these three brothers were to John Tuttle of Dover, New Hampshire, who came over probably a few years earlier, is unknown.
  • John Tuttle signed the protest of 1640 against uniting the little republic at Dover with the Massachusetts Bay Colony. His home was then on the east side of Dover Neck, the river on the east, the lot of Thomas Bearde on the south, and the Great High street on the west. It was about forty rods south-southeast of the First Church, now or lately owned by Samuel Tuttle. This place has been longer than any other in Dover in the hands of the same family. Tuttle died intestate 1663, in May or June. His wife Dorothy was administratrix, making her first return June 30, 1663. Children: 1. Daughter, married Captain Philip Cromwell. 2. Thomas, accidentally killed when a young lad by falling from a tree. 3. John, born 1646; died June, 1720, mentioned below. 4. Dorothy, married Captain Samuel Tebbets, grandson of the pioneer settler, Henry Tebbets.
  • (II) Judge John Tuttle, son of John Tuttle (1), was a man of great distinction in both civil and military life. .... Three generations of the family are buried in the old Tuttle burial ground on the east side of the homestead, next to the road. He died June, 1720, leaving a large estate. He married Mary —— , who survived him, and was his executor. Children: 1. Mary, married John Wallingford. 2. Thomas, born April 4, 1674; died in Bay of Campeachy, April 26, 1699. 3.

  • (I) John Tuttle, the ancestor of the New Hampshire family of Tuttles, settled in Dover some time between 1633 and 1640. Tradition says he had a brother who settled in Connecticut ; otherwise it is not known that he was connected with those who came in the "Planter" to Boston. There is a tradition current among his descendants that he came to Dover from Wales ; another tradition says he came from the western part of England. In 1640 the name of John Tuttle appears among the principal citizens of Dover, on a protest against the project of Underhill to place the little republic of Dover under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts. John Tuttle selected for his residence a charming site on the east side of Dover Neck "bounded with the river on the East, and the lott of Thomas Bearde on the South," and the "Greate High Street" on the West. John Tuttle owned eight acres of the projected city which was laid out into house lots, of one quarter of an acre each. His plantation was on the "west side of Back River adjacent to the Three Creeks." This plantation embraced "lot No. 7," of the "twenty acre lots," which was laid out to John Tuttle in 1642. He also owned other land. He is styled "planter" in public records. He seems to have communicated to his posterity a bias for his own calling; for, with but very few exceptions, his descendants to this day have been "husbandmen" tenaciously holding on to landed property, as illustrated by the fact of the uninterrupted ownership of the farm, which he owned and cultivated more than two hundred and fifty years ago, by his descendants to this day. John Tuttle died intestate in May or June, 1663, a well-to-do planter, probably aged about forty-five. He left a widow Dorothy, and four children: Elizabeth (?), Thomas, John and Dorothy.

  • John1 Tuttle died intestate in May or June, 1663, leaving 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 be 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 had her portion already ; " that the "youngest daughter is to have £15 when she comes to the age of 18 years, or be disposess of on marrying." The bulk of the property, consisting of real estate, was given to the only son then living, John2 Tuttle, "when he comes to 21 years of age."

"Item I will Demise and Bequeth all my Personal Estate that is my House hold Goods & Chattels Bills Bonds Debts Dues which are to be Demaned after the Deceace of my well Beloved wife and not Before to My Three Daughters Equally to be Divided Between Them." He also directed his son, Ebenezer Tuttle to pay "to his Sister Mary Wallingford the Sum of five Pounds."

In 1702 Colonel Paul Wentworth and Judge John Tuttle became partners in a lumber business on the Salmon Falls River in Dover. Judge Tuttle invited his son-in-law John Wallingford to come to Salmon Falls to help with the operation of the saw mill and lumber business. The family moved to that area later on.

According to the " History of Dover, N.H. by John Scales, 1923: John Tuttle " owned much land, had sawmills, built ships and sent them to foreign ports. He held many offices and was one of the most noted and influential citizens of Dover. He was selectman 1686-87, 88; Representative in 1698; Town Clerk from 1686-1717; Representative in the convention of 1689; Judge of the Court of Common Pleas from 1695-1700. He died in 1720."
