In 1952 Donald Lines Jacobus prepared a brief pedigree of the Tuttle family in England, placing the immigrants Richard and William as sons of Simon Tuttle, and John as son of Simon's brother Thomas. In 1978 David L. Greene published transcripts of the wills of Simon Tuttle and his father-in-law, which demonstrated conclusively that all three immigrants (Richard, John and William) were sons of Simon. In 1983 Douglas Richardson published additional biographical information for Simon Tuttle. For citations, see Anderson's Great Migration.
