- A fellow passenger in the "Angel Gabriel" with John Tuttle of Dover was John Cogswell "of Chebasco." He had been a merchant in London. He lost considerable property in the wreck. After living ashore some time in a tent he embarked, a passenger, in a vessel commanded by Capt. Galleys, and took up his abode in Ipswich. He had an unusually large grant of land, 300 acres at Chebasco the next Oct., when there were only two families residing in that parish. He was a wealthy and prominent inhabitant of Ipswich. He d.

- 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.

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.

- John Turtle's Pasture.
- John Tuttle was one of the earliest settlers and owned various lots granted by the Town. His farm included the tillage land now included in the Edmund Wile farm on the west side of the road, and a large pasture on the east side. This twenty acre pasture on the east side of the highway was inherited by his son, ;'Simon Tuttle. In the division of Simon's estate, the widow Sarah

- 'and his son John received half the pasture, "bounded by the Common fence at the end next the road to Rowley, from Kimball's pasture corner to a white oak, between sd. part and Symon's part," etc. and Simon received the rest, bounded by John Roper's, that was Mark Quilter's, on the northwest, Oct. 28, 1707 (Pro. Rec. 304:45)'. Jonathan Hale of Bradford, and Susannah, his wife, daughter of John Tuttle, conveyed to Dea. Mark Haskell, who had married Martha Tuttle, sister of Susannah, their interest in the third part of the estate, set off to their grandmother, Jan. 8, 1730 (77:43), March 14 1731 (77:41). John Dennis and Remember, his wife, Thomas Dennis and Martha, his wife, the wives being grandchildren of 'Sarah Tuttle', conveyed their interest to Dea. Haskell, June 25, 1733. Joanna Whipple, widow of Capt. John, and Susannah Tuttle, singlewoman, daughters of 'Simon and Sarah Tuttle', quitclaimed their interest to Dea. Haskell, July 6, 1732 (77:42).
- 'Simon Tuttle's' half of the pasture was inherited by his son, Simon, who had removed to Littleton, Mass., and was sold by him to Dr. Samuel Wallis Jr., May 6, 1721 (40:12). Dr. Wallis died Oct. 17, 1728 in his 38 th year. Abigail, daughter of Dr. Samuel and Sarah (Pickard) Wallis, married Joseph Smith 3 d (intention, March 14, 1740.) Joseph Smith Jr. and Abigail, of Sudbury, conveyed the pasture lot, bounded northwest by James Lord, to Dea. Mark Haskell and Mark Haskell Jr., Nov. 28, 1749 (120:42). Dea. Mark Haskell conveyed to his son-in-law Edmund Heard of Holden, cordwainer, and Priscilla his wife, one undivided half of the whole pasture in common with Mark Haskell Jr., Feb. 24, 1767, (130:192). The southeast half was acquired by Moses Lord, who may have been a son-in-law, as he married Lucy Heard, Nov. 1, 1787, and his heirs sold the lot, 10 acres and 27 rods, to John Harris, March 22, 1834 (286:287). Daniel Haskell, son of Mark, sold the other half of the pasture, about 10 acres, to Edward Harris, March 18, 1833 (268:187), who bought the whole Haskell farm. With the rest of the farm, it was sold by John Harris, Jr., to Joel Nourse of Boston, Dec. 9, 1852 (470:206), who sold to Edward T. Trofatter, Nov. 23, 1857 (562:49), who conveyed to James Damon of Charlestown May 5, 1858 (570:52). A highway was laid out across this lot from the Rowley road, "nearly opposite Harris's lane" to the Muddy River road, in April, 1849. ......
- Mr. Tuttle also sold a 2 acre lot, northwest of the above lot, to Thomas Boardman, which he sold to John Roper, Oct. 23, 1701, 'Mrs. Sarah Tuttle, widow of Simon, relinquishing- her dower in this lot which her husband had sold (20:132)'. Roper also acquired the Mark Quilter lot, as he is mentioned as an abutter, in the division of the Tuttle pasture. In his will, John Roper devised to his wife, Anna, the use for life and privilege to sell the tillage lot, and pasture lot adjoining Mr. Tuttle,
- "to my Cousin Benj. Dutch, the right of redemption of all my housing and land. If he take it up, he is to pay to my sister Sparks, Susanna Annable, Margaret White, Rose Newman, Sarah Newman, Susanna Kinsman 20, and to Hannah Fellows 25."

- 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 say d 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.

- 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." 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.

- Joanna Tuttell 1
- 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.
- '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. Nov. 20, 1701, and third, Capt. John Whippie Jr., April 14, 1703. Simon, the eldest son, was born Sept. 17, 1677. 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.

- Simon Tuttle, the eldest son, married Mary Rogers. Sarah, the eldest, was born Oct. 11, 1697, followed by Margaret, Elizabeth, Hannah, Simon, Samuel, Lucy, Priscilla and John, who was born Oct. 26, 1718. Simon Tuttle, then of Littleton, conveyed to Dr. Samuel Wallis Jr. the pasture lot he had received under his father's will, May 6, 1721 (40:12), from which it appears that he had removed from the old Ipswich home shortly after the birth of his youngest child, when he was more than fifty years old.
- John, the brother of Simon, married Martha Ward, Dec. 3, 1689, and their children were Martha, born in 1690, married Mark Haskell of Gloucester, int. Jan. 14, 1709 ; Mary, who married Nathaniel Warner ; Remember, who married Job Harris of Gloucester ; Abigail, married William Haskell of Gloucester; William and Susanna, who married Jonathan Hale of Bradford, Nov. 10, 1729.
- The father of the family died on Feb. 26, 1715-6, in his 49th year. Shortly after, the widow addressed a petition to the General Court "setting forth that the said John Tuthill some time before his death made an exchange of a considerable Parcel of Lands with the Proprietors of Ipswich to the Value of about Two hundred Pounds & fenced in said lands with great charge but died before he had made a Conveyance of the said Land to the sd. Proprietors, praying that she may be enabled to make such legal conveyance .... " Her petition was granted. 1
- William, son of John and Martha, baptized on Sept. 30, 1705, had inherited the homestead and farm on Comfort hill. He died Dec. 10, 1726, in his 22nd year, leaving no direct heir. The estate included the house, barn and 34 acres in the homestead etc., a man servant called John Mark, a pair of gold buttons and 3 pair of silver buttons. (Filed Jan. 22, 1726-7. Pro. Rec. 315:445).
- Three of the sisters conveyed their 3-5 interest in the real estate of their late brother to their brother-in-law, Mark Haskell of Gloucester, April 13, 1727 (51:53) and Susanna Hale conveyed her fifth to him on Jan. 8 th , 1730 (77:43). Their grandmother, Sarah, wife of Simon Tuttle, died as has been noted on Jan. 24, 1731/2, holding title to a third in her husband's estate, which had been set off to her. Her daughters, Joanna Whipple, widow of Capt. John, and Susanna, single woman, quitclaimed their interest to Mark Haskell, July 6, 1732 (77:42); the grand daughters making similar conveyance (1731, 60:239, 240; 77:41; 1733, 77:42).
