  • Notes 
    • Thomas, eldest son of Ensign John and Judith (Otis) Tuttle, lived on the ancestral estate on the west side of Back River. Judge Tuttle added to it, by purchase, so that it was large enough for division; and he gave the whole, in nearly equal moieties, to the two oldest sons of his deceased son, Ensign John Tuttle, in this clause of his will: "I Give and Bequeathe to my two Grandsons, viz.: Thomas Tuttle and John Tuttle, all my Lands, Flatts, Creeks, and Marshes, which I am now in possession of, lying on the west side of Back River, adjacent to the Three Creeks." He then points out the division, giving Thomas the north half of the estate. On his share of the estate Thomas built a house, where he lived and died, which stood very near the house of Samuel Tuttle, Esq.

      Thomas mar. Mary Bracket. She died Feb. 28, 1773.

      Thomas and his wife were members of the Society of Friends; most of his descendants are of this religious persuasion. His uncle James was the first of this family who joined this religious sect, whose members met with terrible persecution in Dover at its first introduction.

      Thomas was Selectman of Dover in 1762-63.

      The children of Thomas and Mary (Bracket) Tuttle were:

      (1) Mary, b. Dec. 29, 1723; mar. Daniel Twombley.

      (2) Hope, b. Sept. 25, 1725; mar. Richard Scammon, Jr.

      (3) Sarah, b. April 16, 1727; mar. John Hanson.

      (4) Elisha, b. Feb. 14, 1729.

      (5) Samuel, b. Jan. 3, 1731.

      (6) Thomas, b. April 21, 1733; d. July 31, 1803; mar. Sarah, dau. of William and Mary (Horne) Varney. Thomas Tuttle, M.D., of Northwood, is his grandson.

      (7) Abigail, b. Feb. 25, 1735; d. 1793; she mar. Nathaniel Varney.

      (8) Ebenezer, b. Feb. 5, 1737; d. Dec. 13, 1796; he mar. Deborah, dau. of John Leighton, and lived on the homestead of his father. His eldest son Tobias Tuttle (b. Aug. 25, 1769; d. Sept. 30, 1822) was a prominent citizen of Dover. He was distinguished as a teacher of Navigation and Surveying; he taught the public schools for many years; he was Selectman and Representative during many years. He built a find brick block standing on the south west side of "Tuttle Square," which is said to be the first brick building ever built in Dover.

      (9) Reuben, b. March 26, 1739; mar. Elizabeth, dau. of Tobias and Judith (Varney) Hanson, and removed to Maine.

      (10) Bathsheba, b. Aug. 28, 1741; d. 1821; mar. Joseph Varney, brother of Nathaniel.
