Tuttle Family

 

The Tuttles are probably the most "colorful" of all of my ancestors, as you will see in reading the following report.  Our family descends through John Tuttle and his wife, Joan, who settled in Ipswich. In this family are found murderers, some insanity, great immorality and deceit, and great knowledge and achievement.  It is through the Tuttle family that the connection to Aaron Burr can be found, the third great grandson of William Tuttle, brother of our ancestor, John. Eli Whitney, inventor of the Cotton Gin, married Henrietta Edwards, a 6th cousin in this family.  Another famous man, who is a third cousin to me, was Jonathan Edwards, known as "The Divine", because of his Calvinistic preaching methods. He was a strict Presbyterian minister, both loved and hated by his congregation.  He alienated many in his church because of his beliefs and fiery manner.  He is known for his extreme, great intelligence, some saying he was the greatest intelligence in the entire Western Hemisphere.  He entered Yale University at the age of 13, and graduated at 17, at the head of his class.  He was the third president of Princeton, succeeding his son-in-law, Aaron Burr, Sr.  His descendants went on to become influential ministers, college presidents, financiers, surgeons and judges. Jonathan's grandson was Aaron Burr, the Vice President under Jefferson.  The family, religiously, were Quakers and Calvinist Presbyterians.

The Tuttle name is probably taken from the name of a locality, and the name of Tothill, Toothill or Tuthill is still borne by many villages in Great Britain. The first name on the roll of the Battle Abbey (1066) is Toteles. The family has been well known in several parts of England and many of its members have held positions of honor and distinction. The family claims very ancient descent in Ireland, being known before the Christian era in the well-known sept or tribe of O'Toole, which also appears written O'Tothill by antiquarians. Between the years 1629 and 1640 many families left England on account of the conditions existing there. In the year 1635 there were three distinct families by the name of Tuttle who came to America in the ship "Planter", and besides these two other Tuttles bearing the Christian name of John, one of them accompanied by his brother Henry came in that year. Others came a few years later. Of those who came in the "Planter", John Tuttle settled at Ipswich, Richard in Boston and William in New Haven.

In the following report, look for these people of interest in the third generation:  Richard Edwards and his wife Elizabeth Tuttle, (Elizabeth was pregnant with another man's child when she married Richard Edwards, and later became insane), Sarah and Benjamin Tuttle, (Benjamin murdered his sister for "losing her virginity", and was tried and executed). Elizabeth's sister, Mercy Tuttle, was tried for killing her son.  Exerpts from books on the families of New England are reprinted telling the details of the accusations and the trials that followed.

This report goes to the10th generation, and the birth of my grandfather.

Notes for SARAH TUTTLE: Sarah Tuttle was merely a flirt, but two separate incidents have guaranteed her place in history. At a court held in New Haven, May 1, 1660, Jacob Murline and Sarah Tuttle were prosecuted for "sinful dalliance". They were accused of "sitting down on a chest together, his arm about her waist and her arm upon his should or about his neck, and continuing in this sinful position about half an hour, in which time he kissed her and she kissed him, and they kissed one another", as the witnesses testify. This complaint was made by Sarah's father under a law that whosoever should inveigle or draw away the affections of any maid or maid servant for himself or others, without first obtaining the consent of her parents or guardians, should pay, besides all the damages the parent might sustain, 40 shillings for the first offense, and for the second towards the same person, 4 pounds and for the third, fined, imprisoned and corporally punished, as the Plantation court may direct.

The term "inveigling" appears to have had rather wide implications. There were cases in which the young man charged with this offense had done nothing more than to walk with the girl on a country road. Young women who consented to advances from the men were also looked upon with legal disfavor. Mr. Tuttle pleaded that Jacob had endeavored to steal away his daughter's affections.

Additionally, the Governor declared that "the business for which they were warned to the Court he had heard in private at his house which he related to stand thus; on the day John Potter was married, Sarah Tuttle went to Mr. Murline's for some three hours. Mr. Murline bid her go to her daughters in the other room, where they fell into speech of John Potter & his wife, that they were both lame, upon which Sarah Tuttle said that she wondered what they would do at night whereupon Jacob came in a tooke away or took up her gloves; Sarah desired him to give her the gloves, to which he answered he would do so, if she would give him a kiss, upon which they sate downe together, his arme being about her & her arme upon his shoulder or about he necke & he kissed her & shee him, or they kissed one another, continuing in this posture about half an houre. Mrs. Murline now in Court said that she heard her say, she wondered what they would doe at night & she replied they must sleep, but there was company with her in the roome, and she was in a strait; but it is matter of sorrow & shame to her."

Jacob was asked what he had to say to these things; to which he answered, "yes he was in the other roome & when he heard Sarah speake those words he went in, where shee haveing let fall her gloves, he tooke them up & she asked him for them; hee told her he would if shee would kisse him which she did; further said that he tooke her by her hand & they both sate downe upon a chest, but whether his arme were about her & her arme upon his shoulder or about his neck, he knowes not, but he never thought of it since, till Mr. Raymond told him of it; for which he was blamed & told that it appeares that he hath not layd it to heart as he ought. But Sarah Tuttle replyed that shee did not kiss him; but Sarah being asked if Jacob had inveigled her, she said, no; tho Tuttle said that he came to their house two or three times before he went to Holland & they two were together & to what end he came he knowes not unless it were to inveigle her & their mother warned Sarah not to keep company with him. Jacob denyed that he came to their house with any such intention nor did it appeare so to the Court. The Governor told Sarah that her miscarriage is the greatest that a virgin should be so bold in the presence of others, to carry it as she had done & to speake such corrupt words, most of the things charged being acknowledged by her self, though that about kissing him is denyed, yet the thing is proved. Sarah professed that she was sorry that she had carried it so foolishly & sinfully which she sees to be hateful; she hoped God would help her to carry it better for time to come. The Governor also told Jacob that his carriage hath beene very evil and sinfull, so to carry towards her; & to make such a light matter of it as not to thinke of it (as he had exprest) doth greatly aggravate."

Sarah was characterized by the court as a "bold virgin" who had better mend her ways. She said meekly that she would. Jacob was set free and told to shun such virgins as Sarah. The Court declared, "that we have heard in the publique ministry that it is a thing to be lamented that younge people should have their meetings, to the corrupting of themselves & one another; as for Sarah Tuttle, her miscarriages are very great, that she should utter so corrupt a speech as she did concerning the persons to be married & that she should carry it in such an imodest, uncivil, wanton, lascivious manner, as hath beene proved; & for Jacob, his carriage hath beene verry corrupt & sinfull, such as brings reproach upon the family & place; the sentence therefore concerning them was, that they shall pay either of them as a fine 20 shillings to the Treasurer."

Sarah Tuttle died at the hands of her brother, Benjamin on November 17, 1676. Twenty-nine year old Benjamin made his family's name in history with that rather indelicate instrument, the ax. That night he began quarreling with sister, Sarah. A fragment of paper preserved in the CT State Archives contains a statement by Benjamin.

In it he said that he was with his sister, that they had had a falling out, that he was afraid she would do to him what he had done to her, and that he had no love for her. He and Sarah may have been arguing about the division of their dead father's considerable property, or perhaps Sarah made a disparaging remark about their sister, Elizabeth, who was showing signs of an impetuous nature and lack of decorum which was quite at odds with the Puritan standards of the day. Benjamin may have reminded Sarah that she was no angel; she had scandilized the town in her youth by publicly exchanging kisses with a Dutch sailor, for which she and the sailor were fined.

Whatever the quarrel was about, Benjamin resolved it in a terrible, final manner. He went to the barn, got an ax, returned to the house and struck Sarah on the head, "maulling & mashing her head to many pieces in a barbarous and bloudy maner." Benjamin then ran away and hid in the woods, but was later apprehended and tried and convicted for the murder May 29, 1677.

An official record of the case appears in Crimes, op. cit. Document No. 80:

14. ELIZABETH3 TUTTLE (WILLIAM2, SYMON1 TOOTILL, RICHARDA, THOMASB TOTEHYLL)9 was born 1645 in New Haven, New Haven CT. She married RICHARD EDWARDS10 November 19, 1667, son of WILLIAM EDWARDS and AGNES SPENCER. He was born May 16, 1647 in Hartford, Hartford CT, and died April 20, 1718 in Hartford, Hartford CT.

Notes for ELIZABETH TUTTLE: "A remarkable feature in our family history, as it would be in any other, is the branch of Elizabeth. It is an interesting genealogical study. Both the parents were of the same Welsh race. There is evidence that the mother had the sensitive and excitable temperament of genius. Richard Edwards, being an only child, inherited ample means and gave his children the best education the country afforded. To educate is to bring out, and to train, it cannot create talents or character. The ministerial profession was then almost the only field for the employment of able and educated men. So all things conspired to favor the natural bent for their son Timothy. The process was continued and in the next generation reached its highest development in his son Jonathan. From the very beginning this branch has been noted for its high regard for education, its scholarly culture, and its religious disposition. It is said to include a larger number of eminent persons than have sprung from any other one of the New England founders. It is wonderful, says a late writer, how much of the grace and culture of American society has sprung from this root. The same pursuits continued generation after generation in the same families, or originally set apart by nature for a chosen work, has resulted in a heritage of confirmed aptitudes, enlarged natural capacities, delicacy and refinement of physical organization, manners, sentiments and tastes; a sort of 'Brahmin Caste in New England,' as Dr. Holmes put it, of which the Edwards family form a considerable proportion, and in which it holds a high rank."

FROM CONN. QUARTERLY
"The branch of the Tuttle family from which Elizabeth Tuttle came, was erratic to the degree of insanity, and is so to a certain extent to the present day. This family taint was restrained by the strong will and great spirituality and intellectual vigor of Rev. Timothy and Rev. Jonathan, only to crop out again in renewed activity in the son (Pierpont Edwards) and the grandson (Aaron Burr), of the 'divine Jonathan,' both of whom were profligate, vicious and licentious. Mrs. Richard Edwards' brother was found guilty of slaying his sister, by the Colonial Court, and executed; and another sister was found guilty of killing her own son, but through the confusion existing at that time, she escaped the penalty of the law."

Elizabeth Tuttle, the eighth child of William Tuttle and Elizabeth Mathews married Richard Edwards November 91, 1667. Elizabeth early on showed signs of an impetuous nature and lack of decorum, which was quite at odds with the Puritan standards of the day.

From the minutes of "A County Court holden by adjournment at Hartford, 1668" came this note: "Richard Edwards and Elizabeth his wife, being called to an account of incontinency before marriage, the Court having considered what hath been presented, with the acknowledgement of the said Ricahrd that he was upon the bed with her at Mr. Wells, his house, before marriage, the best part of one night, and in company with her at New Haven (according to which the child was borne), this Court cannot but judge and declare the child borne of the said Elizaeth to be and be reputed child of the said Richard Edwards, and for their incontinency before marriage, they are adjudged to pay [as] a fine to the public treasury of the County of Hartford, the sum of five pounds."

Richard subsequently learned that he was not the father of the first child, Mary, and on July 2, 1689, he filed a petition to divorce her. He rather plantively based his divorce action on the following four reasons: "(1) Her being guilty at first of a fact of ye same nature; (2) Her refusing me so longer together; (3) Her carage having been observed by some to bee very fond and unseemly to some other man than my self; (4) Her often comending on other man with show or ye like words...hee was worth a thousand of my self." That "other man" may have been one William Pitkin, for he brought suit against Richards Edwards in May of 1691 for using a term in his divorce case that was "derogatory of his (Pitkin's) honor." The records found in "Crimes and Misdemeanors, Divorces, 1664-1732, Document No. 235" read:

"He found, three mo. after marriage, that she was with child by another (Mr. Randolph), who she accused before 2 magistrates; and her father [William Tuttle] took and brought up the child; which from regard to her and relying upon her fair promises, he [Richard] neglected to take advantage of her, for which he had bitter cause to repent. He lived with her eight or nine years, when she obstinately refused conjugal communion with him, and deserted his bed; and her conduct was so intolerable that by advice, he travelled abroad, hoping by his absence she would relent. On his return, for a while, she behaved herself, but soon, in answer to some question, she said she had committed folly with another man, whom she named, and fell into her old fits of obstinacy; and he renounced her as a wife, and so has since lived. She has caused him intolerable and insupportable afflictions. He enters into a long scriptural argument for divorce and quotes early Christian examples and authorities. She is guilty of adultery, and he prays a release."

Edwards' plea for divorce was denied despite the fact that Elizabeth's two eldest children by Edwards, Timothy and Abigail, testified against her, "to the great obstinacy of their mother and to her absenting herself from their father's bed and society."

Two years later, in Oct of 1691, a council of "able divines (including the famous Rev. Thomas Hooker and Rev. Increase Mather) were assembled to consider the divorce action again. At that time Richard made a second, more long-winded plea. By then he was calling himself an attorney, though he was self taught. Besides, he needed to be free to marry Mary Talcott, with whom he had lain already. In fact, Mary Talcott had been fined for fornication with him.

On top of that, Mercy Brown, Elizabeth's sister, had killed her son the previous spring and her brother Benjamin had been executed for murdering their sister, Sarah prior to that. It became clear that Elizabeth herself was, at times, not in her right mind, and often threatened to murder her husband while he was asleep. Surely the judges would understand that Richard's fear of Elizabeth was not ungrounded. The upshot of this second plea was that the ministers decided "it is not within the compass of human power to deny him a divorce." Edwards was granted the divorce and eventually married Mary Talcott, with whom he had six children.

After the divorce, there is no record of Elizabeth ever marrying again. Nor was the date of her death recorded, which leads one to believe that she may have been leading a marginal existence by the time she died. It is possible, too, that she committed suicide. Suicide was a grave sin in those times, and a person who had committed suicide could not be buried in a cemetery. Perhaps she had wandered to another, wilder part of the country and died in an area where records were not kept.

Ironically, Elizabeth Tuttle was the ancestor of a family that was to have an amazing impact on American history. Her son Timothy married a Stoddard, and he became the father of Jonathan Edwards, the brilliant, neurotic minister who has been called the last of the great Puritans. Jonathan Edwards married a Pierepont. His descendants went on to be influential ministers, college presidents, financiers, surgeons and judges. Perhaps the most famous descendant was Aaron Burr.

Notes for RICHARD EDWARDS: Richard Edwards was a well-to-do merchant, later became an attorney-at-law, and practicing his profession as early as 1684; in 1702-3 he argued a fugitive slave case against Saltonstall. He was probably the first Queen's Attorney, appointed as such in April, 1705, the office having been created in May, 1704.

His eldest son, Timothy, wrote as follows concerning him: "He was a noble stature of a straight, well-formed body and of a comely countenance. His smile had a pleasantcy beyond which I have seen in many, yea, in most others. He was quick and nimble in his movements even to old age and was of a strong and healthy constitution. He had a strong clear mind. and had a very good utterance. He had a quick fancy; a pleasant. ready wit, with a very good judgment. He could argue in a matter and reason in a case very well. He was a man of considerable reading; both in Law History, and Divinity; was well furnished for society and very pleasant in consultation. Thus it pleased the Most High to endow and adorn my dear departed father with many virtues which rendered him very lovely and desirable in his life and much lamented in his death.

Notes for JONATHAN EDWARDS: Colleague pastor of the Church in Horthampton, Mass. Rev. Jonathan Edwards died about six weeks after his installation as President of the Union College, in Princeton N.J., where he succeeded his son-in-law. The Encyclopedia Britannica describes him as "the most distinguished metaphysician and divine of America." John Fisk says: "Jonathan Edwards was one of the wonders of the world, probably the greatest intelligence that the Western Hemisphere had yet seen." Jonathan Edwards was capable in his sermons of producing so great pain to the quick sensibilities of his hearers that during his discourses the house would be filled with weeping and wailing auditors; on one occasion another minister present is said to have cried out in his agony, "Oh! Mr. Edwards! is God not a God of mercy?" This celebrated preacher succeeded the elder Burr, who died in September, 1757, in the presidency of Princeton college, but he did not take his seat until in February of the following year. Mr. Edwards held the position scarcely a month, dying while undergoing inoculation for the smallpox. He has been called the turning point in the spiritual existence of the congregations of the last century.

50. ESTHER6 EDWARDS (JONATHAN5, TIMOTHY4, ELIZABETH3 TUTTLE, WILLIAM2, SYMON1 TOOTILL, RICHARDA, THOMASB TOTEHYLL)30 was born February 13, 1731/32, and died April 07, 1758 in Princeton NJ. She married REV. AARON BURR31,32 June 29, 1752, son of DANIEL BURR. He was born 1714, and died September 24, 1757.

Notes for ESTHER EDWARDS: "She exceeded most of her sex," writers of the period testify, "in the beauty of her person as well as behaviour and conversation. . . . Her genius was more than common. . . . She possessed an uncommon degree of wit and vivacity, which yet was consistent with pleasantness and good nature. . . . In short, she seemed to please one of Dr. Burr's tastes in character, in whom she was exceedingly happy. Her religion did not cast a gloom over her mind and made her cheerful and happy, and rendered the thought of death transporting." She died of smallpox soon after her husband's death, leaving two young orphans, Aaron and Sally Burr. (Narratives of Newark in New Jersey, 1666-1916)

Notes for REV. AARON BURR: Rev. Aaron Burr, Pastor of the Church, at Newark, N. J., and afterwards Second President of the College at Princeton. Presbyterian minister at Newark, and eminent both as a scholar and as a divine. The New York Mercury of Monday, October 10, 1757, contained this notice of President Burr's death: Nassau Hall, New Jersey, September 29th, 1757. On Monday last was interred Rev. Mr. Aaron Burr, President of the college. He died on the 24th inst., in the 41st year of his age. His funeral was attended by several ministers, all the students, and a large number of neighboring inhabitants Universal was the grief on the melancholy occasion; and the loss of so valuable a man diffuses a general sorrow among all ranks of people. He was born at Fairfield, in Connecticut, and descended from one of the most considerable families in New England. His education he had at Yale College in New Haven and was reputed one of the best scholars in his class. He offered himself to an examination as a candidate for the Dean's bounty, and was adjudged worthy to enjoy that benefaction.

Then follows an account of his settlement in Newark and his presidency of the College of New Jersey: By his pupils he was beloved as a friend, and like a father revered and honored. In promoting the prosperity of the seminary, over which he presided, he was discouraged by no disappointment, but of unwearied assiduity and inflexible resolution. By his pious instruction and example, his affectionate addresses and gentle discipline he initiated the students as well into the school of Jesus as into the literature of Greece and Rome, and ennured even youth in full luxury of blood to fly the infectious world, and tread the paths of virtue....In him the Churches have lost a distinguished divine, the College a learned and faithful head, the poor a liberal, beneficent friend, his lady the best of husbands and the commonwealth an incorruptible patriot.

Notes for TIMOTHY EDWARDS: He was a stern Puritan, and was twenty years old when his parents both died, and he became, as the eldest son, the guardian and head of a family of eight, half of them under sixteen, among them Pierpont Edwards, aged five, and Aaron Burr, his nephew, aged two. He married within two years, and began to have a family of his own. Such cares compelled him to give up his chosen profession of the law, for mercantile pursuits. In 1767, he was appointed Justice of the Peace for Essex County, N. J. In 1771 he removed to Stockbridge, and engaged in trade and farming; from 1778 to 1787, he was Judge of Probate for Berkshire Co.; from 1775 to 1780 a member of the council of Mass.; was a commission with Silas Deane to the Indians in Western Mass.; and was a commissary for supplying the army with provisions. In 1777 he was elected by the legislature as a member of the Continental Congress with John Adams and John Hancock, but was prevented from accepting by the approach of Burgoyne's Army. He spent his wealth and exhausted his credit in aiding the Government through the war. In 1784 he was appointed one of the commissioners to settle the N. Y. and Mass. boundary. His widow died at Litchfield, Conn. Both were buried at Stockbridge. They had fifteen children, nine of whom survived.
