Dorothy Tuttle 1

  • Died: Dec 1638, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, USA about age 48
  • Buried: Copps Hill Burying Ground, Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, USA

bullet  General Notes:

Dorothy was born about 1590 in England. She survived her husband, who died in 1638/9. We do not know how and when Dorothy and John Bill & their family immigrated to America.

We do, however, have a good record of the migration of the rest of her family. Dorothy's brother Richard Tuttle came from London, Middlesex, England to Ipswich, Essex co., and Massachusetts aboard the Planter in 1635. With him on this voyage were their mother Isabel, who was 70 years old; his wife Ann, aged 41; and children Ann, 12, John, 10, and Rebecca, 6. Richard himself was 42 and a husbandman (farmer). The Tuttle family settled and prospered in the Rumney Marsh [now Revere] and Chelsea area of Boston, Suffolk co., Massachusetts.

Dorothy married John BILL, SR., in England about 1615. They had the following children:

i. James 1615-1688
ii. Thomas 1618
iii. Phillip1621-1689
iv. John 1622
v. Mary 1624

Dorothy's brother Richard became responsible for Dorothy Tuttle Bill's affairs after her husband John's death -- via a writ of 21 January 1638/9, 1 month after his death.
