Jemima Tuttle [b] b 1710, d 13 Apr 1802, Whately, Hampshire, MA. She md Benjamin Scott bef 1742, Whately, Hampshire, MA, son of Josiah Scott and Sarah Barrett.

a. William Tuttle, with his wife Elizabeth and their children, were passengers on the ship "Planter" which sailed from Gravesend for their new home in Apr 1635. About one year after their arrival, Mrs. Elizabeth "Tuttell" united with the church in Boston, Jul 24, 1636. Her sons Jonathan and David were also baptized there. William Tuttle, called "husbandman" on the passenger list, is also mentioned as a merchant in a petition. In various records he is mentioned with the prefix "Mr.". He joined Eaton's company, composed mostly of persons who had been engaged in commercial pursuits in their native country, and who wished to form a commercial city in the new world. On 26 Jul 1637, Messrs. Davenport and Eaton, with their company arrived in Boston, and in the fall of that year, Mr. Eaton with others, made a trip along the Long Island shore between Saybrook and Fairfield with the object of selecting a spot for an independent colony, the place selected being Quinnipiac. The main body of the company sailed from Boston 30 Mar and arrived 14 Apr 1638, and during the summer the town was laid out, and house lots assigned to settlers. Mr. Tuttle's name appears in a church covenant signed by the planters in Jun 1639. In 1641 he became owner of the home lot of Edward Hopkins, who had removed to Hartford, and in 1656, he bought the original allotment of Joshua Atwater, his mansion, house and barn with certain other lands. This became William Tuttle's home until his death, and later became part of Yale College. In 1659, William Tuttle's name appears as proprietor of land in North Haven. He was a large landholder at one time, but sold or divided a large part of his lands among his children before his death. He was often appointed to settle boundary questions and private disputes. He died in the early part of Jun 1673, and his widow died 30 Dec 1684 at the age of 72.

b. While she does not appear among the children of John Tuttle and Mary Burroughs in the sources listed below, veteran Tuttle researcher, David Tuttle, states that Jemima was indeed their daughter, and further that while Jemima may have been born in Whately, Hampshire, Mass., "she was baptised in Lebanon, Conn., First Church records; daughter of John Tuttle born 1657 & Mary Burroughs born 1672; died 13-Apr-1802 at age 92, in Whately, MA (vital records)...Married to Benjamin Scott; born 31 May 1708." This author also notes that in the sources shown here, the last two children shown for John Tuttle and Mary Burroughs are shown as ?, which indicates that the records are obviously incomplete. David Tuttle also states that there was movement of families up and down the Connecticut River Valley at that time, so it would not be unusual for one or more children to be born and/or baptized at locations enroute; this would also explain the incomplete/questioned records of the last two children shown for John Tuttle and Mary Burroughs in some sources.
