Birth: 1620, England
Death: Mar. 13, 1676
Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA

He was the son of John Nutting and Elizabeth Rawlings. He married Sarah Eggleston on August 28, 1650 in Woburn MA

John Rawlings Nutting first married Mary Parker in Woburn in 1645. He held a lot of property and a home large and sedure enough to be a garrison in the defense of Groton during King Philip's War. Under attackMarch 13, 1676, he apparently opened the door to defend the "garrison" and was immediately killed, his body taken, decapitated and head placed on a pole. Several others were killed that night and it is the date we have for his wife's death as well. However, there is also a story that she instead merely relocated that night to her sister Ruth in Woburn and never returned.(Thank you Pia for this biography)
