Biography of William Tuttle

The word Tuthill, meaning a conical hill, is a common place name in England, of remote antiquity. From one or more places named Tuthill the surname Tuthill or Tuttle is derived, after a prevalent custom in the twelfth century and later when surnames came into use in England. The family had been especially prominent in Devonshire, England. There came to America in 1635, in the ship “Planter,” three families of this name from the parish of St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England. John, William, and Richard Tuttle, the heads of these families, were doubtless brothers. John Tuttle, mercer, aged thirty-nine, according to the passenger list, in 1635, settled at Ipswich, Massachusetts; was in Ireland in 1654, and probably fell sick there, for his wife went to Carrickfergus, Ireland, and wrote April 6, 1657, that he died there, December 30, 1656. Richard Tuttle, aged forty-two, settled in Boston, where he died May 8, 1640. Henry Tuttle was in Hingham, Massachusetts, in 1635, coming with his brother John; Henry removed to Southold, Long Island, John returned to England, and settled at Weybread, Suffolk county. Still another John Tuttle came in the ship “Angel Gabriel” and settled in Dover, New Hampshire. (I) William Tuttle, immigrant ancestor, came from St. Albans parish, Hertfordshire, England, on the ship “Planter,” in April, 1635, with his brothers John and Richard and their families. He stated his age as twenty-six. His wife Elizabeth, aged twenty-three, and children, – John, aged three and a half, and Thomas, aged three months, – came at the same time. His occupation was given as husbandman. His wife joined the church at Boston, August...
