(The Tuttle Line).

History records that four distinct families
of the name of Tutle or Tuttle, or at least with
some name resembling these forms, came over
to America as early as 1634, three of them in
the ship "Planter." and the other in the
"Angel Gabriel." which was wrecked off the
coast of Maine the same year. Totyl, Totehill,
Tothill and Tuttle are held to be synonymous.
The name is supposed to have originated by
families living near t'le natural or artificial
mounds called tot-hi'l^. which abound in
widely separated localities in England, and
was taken as a surname. A common origin,
or even blood relationship between all who
bear this name in any of its forms, is there-
fore unlikely. That they were important is
attested bv the use of coats-of-arms of at
least two branches. That of the Tothills of
Devonshire (from which the Tuttle family of
American sprang) , is thus described : "Azure,
on a bend argent, cotized or a lion passant
sable. Crest — On a hill, vert, a dove proper
bearing an olive branch vert, with fruit or."

The three Tuttles arriving on the "Planter"
were John of Ipswich, Richard of Boston, and
William, who went to New Haven. The sur-
vivor of the "Angel Gabriel" was John Tuttle,
of Dover, New Hampshire. A family pedi-
gree bearing the date of 1591 places at the
head of it one William Totyl, of Devonshire,
called "esquire," who served as bailiff in 1528
and again in 1548: he was high sheriff in 1549,
and lord mayor of Exeter in 1552. It is prob-
able that the immigrant Tuttles may have had
a close connection with this family. Another
authority derives the name, at least in Scot-
land and Ireland, from O'Tuathail, anglicized

Toole, Tuthill and Tuttle, the members of
which family were kings of Leinster, princes
of Imaile, and chiefs of Hy-Mureadaigh or
Hy-Murray, the surname being derived from
the commander Tuathail, who is number one
hundred and nine on the family pedigree. The
chief ancestor was Cahir the Great, who was
succeeded by Conn of the Hundred flatties in
the second century A. D. Lower derives the
names Turtle and Tuttle from an old tribe
name, Hy-Tuirtre, whose ancient territory
was the modern county Antrim.

(I) \\'illiam Tuttle. the immigrant ancestor
of the Tuttle family, was born about 1609,
and died in the early days of June, 1673. at
New Haven, Connecticut. He crossed from
England in the ship "Planter," which lanaea
in April, 1635, after a long and stormy voy-
age. He must have been a man of great
courage, for he, in common with other Eng-
lishmen, must have heard of the horrors of
the first winter at Plymouth and the subse-
quent Indian massacres, and the untold hard-
ships that befell the lot of the immigrants.
He was a man of substance, as he had the
wherewithal to pay the passage of himself and
family and to purchase a home for himself,
his wife, Elizabeth, aged twenty-three, and
children — John, aged three and a half years;
.'\nn, aged two and a half years ; and Thomas,
aged three months. Immediately after land-
ing- he began business for himself, and was
rated as a husbandman and merchant, he pur-
chasing land for a farm and establishinfr a
store. His wife, Elizabeth, was admitted to
the church in Boston. July 14, 16^6, and was
dismissed to the Ipswich church September 8,
t6^0. In 1635 he was eiven permission to
build a windmill at Charlcstown, and he be-
came a proprietor of Bo.ston in 163^1, owning
later, in 1641, a home lot in New Haven,
Connecticut, which he bought of Edward Hop-
kins. In i6i;o he boutrht of Joshua Atwater
his mansion house and barn and certain other
lands, afterwards the property of Mrs. Hester
Coster, who bequeathed them to the church.
The church sold it in 1717 to Yale College,
and it is now a part of the college grounds,
formerly enclosed by the historic "fence."
Mr. Tuttle was one of the first owners of
New Haven, and surveyed the road from the
ferry at Red Rock to Stony River. In 1659
he bought land at North Haven, and in 1661



a dwelling house and home lot of John Pun-
derson, which he gave to his son, John Tuttle.
He was assigned one of the best seats in the
meeting house, which shows his high standing
in the community. He was one of the peti-
tioners for permission to continue their settle-
ment in Delaware unmolested. This project
failed, however, and he remained in New
Haven where he farmed. He served as fence
viewer: in 1646 did garrison duty, being also
often on committees to settle boundary ques-
tions ; was many times on the jury; 1667 he
was constable. At his request, at a court held
in New Haven, May i, 1660, his daughter,
Sarah Tuttle, and Jacobeth Melyn, son of
Cornelius Melyn, the patroon of Staten Island,
of which he was sole proprietor by grant from
the home government, were prosecuted for
"sitting down on a chest together, his arm
about her waist and her arm upon his shoulder
or neck, and continuing in this sinful position
about a half an hour, in which time he kissed
her and she kissed him and they kissed one
another, as the witnesses testify." They were
fined twenty shillings each, and one-half of
Sarah's was subsequently remitted at request
of her father. An inventory of William Tut-
tle's estate, Jime, 1673, by John Harriman and
William Bradley, places its value at £400 85s
6d. every article beine tabulated and valued.
His wife Elizabeth's estate, in Ecbniary, 1684.
was apnroved by M. Mansfield and John Al-
leng, Jr.; the tabulated list was £204 75s
3J^d. This did not include the real estate, and
was for those times large amounts Children :

(The Vail Line).

There is a good deal of doubt as to the
origin of the surname. Vail or Vaill. but it
is generally claimed to be Welsh or English.
The Vails of Mayfield. Fulton county. New
York, are said to be descended from Samuel
Vail, who settled in the Mohawk Valley. He
had a brother William who settled in the town
of Galway, now Saratoga county. New York
Samuel Vail was for a long tine at Albany,
New York, where he was engaged as a carriage
btiilder. The immigrant ancestor of the Vails
of Troy is said to be John Vail, who settled in
Rye, in 1683, went toSouthhold, Long Island,
about 1700, and died there previous to 1770, at
the age of ninety-four years. The family, ac-
cording to one authority, originally Vaill. went
into France in 1 513. beginning with John
Vaill. born in Gloucestershire England, who

went into France with Henry \TII. as en-
sign. Another immigrant ancestor of the
name is Jeremiah \'ail or Vaill, who was a
resident of Salem, Massachusetts, as early as
1639, and July that year was a witness in
the court held there. In 1647 Jeremiah Vail
became a proprietor, bought land in 1648,
sold it in 165 1, and removed out of the juris-
diction. He was a blacksmith by trade, and
probably followed that trade during his resi-
dence in Salem. In 1645, his wife Cath-
arine was admitted to the church there. In
165 1 he removed to Gardiner's Island, then
called the Isle of Wight, and took charge,
with Anthony Waters, of the farm of Lieu-
tenant Lion r;ardiner of Long Island. Pre-
vious to his removal he had been granted, in
165 1, by the town of Southampton. Long
Island, a lot of land, provided that he set-
tle there before the following January and
do all the blacksmith work of the town. This
offer, however, he did not accept. In legal
and ecclesiastical affairs, Gardiner's Island
was subject to the authority of the town of
Easthampton, and its early records contain
several brief statements respecting Jeremiah
Vail. It is quite possible that there was a
relationship between Jeremiah Vail and
Thomas \'ail. another immigrant ancestor of
the \'ail family, mentioned below, but what
that relationship was. supposing it to have ex-
isted, has not been ascertained.

(I) Thomas Vail, immigrant ancestor of
the Vail family, resided before 1657 in South-
ampton, Long Island, and in Westchester
county. New York. He married (first) Sarah

. and (secoiuH Elizabeth . born 1(157,

and died November 3, 1747, at Woodbridge,
New Jersey ; the family names of neither of
Thomas' wives are on record. Elizabeth, his
second wife, survived him, and married (sec-
ond) a man of the name of Gach, and (third)
John Griffith. Child of Thomas \'ail. by
first marriage: Joseph; by secotid marriage:
Samuel, mentioned below; Martha, John,
Daniel, Arthur and Thomas.

(II) Samuel, son of Thomas and Elizabeth
Vail, was born January 21, 1678. and died
July 26. 1733. at Woodbridge. New Jersey.
He married (first) Abigail (surname not
given in records), born 1685. died Novem-
ber 14, 1724, at Westchester, New York; and
(second'l April 8, 1725, Sarah, daughter of



Matthew Farrington. Children by first mar-
riage ; John, mentioned below ; Stephen, Sam-
uel, Phebe, Thomas, Isaac, Joseph, Abigail ;
by second marriage : Matthew, Sarah and

(III) John, son of Samuel and Abigail
Vail, was born May 21, 1708, at Westchester,
New York, and died August 17, 1754, at
Plainfield, New Jersey. He was called John
Vail, ]r., to distinguish him from his uncle,
the Quaker preacher. He himself also be-
longed to the Society of Friends. He mar-
ried (first) in 1731, between November 19
and December 16 that year, Margaret, daugh-
ter of John and Elizabeth (Shotwell) Laing,
born November 9, 1710, at Old Plainfield, Pis-
cataway township, Middlesex county, New
Jersey, and died before 1751 ; (second) be-
fore November 17, 1751, Mary Laing, his
first wife's sister, born 1717. Children by first
marriage: Samuel, John, Daniel, Isaac.
