Simon Tuttle, son of John and Joanna, who had been engaged in trading ventures in Barbadoes, became owner of the Comfort hill farm and made his home on the hill. His wife, Sarah, was the mother of twelve children. The eldest, Joanna, whose name is recorded erroneously in the Vital Statistics as Hannah, born Sept. 4, 1664, married, first, Pickard, second, Edmund L. Pottar of Rowley int.

Following these were JOHN, Elizabeth, Sarah, Abigail, Susanna, William, Charles, Mary, Jonathan and Ruth, the youngest, who was born on Aug. 16, 1685 and married Ezra Rolfe of Bradford, Sept. 17, 1728. Mr. Tuttle died in January, 1691, but his widow survived forty years. She died on Jan. 24, 1731, aged eighty-six.

His inventory, taken March 25, 1692 (Pro. Rec. 304:45), mentions the dwelling, barn, and about 3 acres of homestead; "the house and one acre of land, y" homestead John Tuttell lives in"; and various pasture and tillage lots. It has been said in the annals of the Foster farm, now known as the Mitchell farm, that John Tuttle's dwelling was sold to Jacob Foster before 1701. The lands were divided by an agreement between the heirs on Oct. 28, 1701.
