|Birth: ||Aug. 17, 1623|
|Death: ||Aug. 9, 1683|
Hannah Tuttle, dau. of Richard Tuttle and Ann Taylor, bp. Aug. 17, 1623 at Ringstead, Northamptonshire, England. In April 1635 called "Anna aged 12," she sailed with her parents from the Port of London on the ship Planter and arrived at Boston, Mass. by the following July. She d. Aug. 9, 1683 at Hartford, Conn., Æ 60, not 50.
According to a 1898 issue of the Connecticut Quarterly Magazine, Hannah's gravestone was standing at Hartford's Center Cemetery in 1835, with the supposed statement that she died "aged" 50.[*1] However, her age at death must have been based either on a misreading of the gravestone, when actually she died "aged 60," or provided by George F. Tuttle by 1883, under Tuttle's errant belief Hannah was the dau. of her uncle, William Tuttle of New Haven, Conn. This errant identification and age at death was carried forward by Barbour in "Families of Early Hartford, Connecticut." The circa 1902 restoration of the Ancient Burying Ground did not include Hannah's gravestone, which apparently no longer existed by the early 1900s.
Donald Lines Jacobus proved and corrected Hannah's parental association error in 1974 (The American Genealogist, 30:7). William Tuttle's dau. Ann, bp. Jan. 20, 1632/3, who Geo. Tuttle had confused as being one and the same as Hannah, brother Richard's dau., accompanied her cousin Hannah in 1635 aboard the Planter. Ann m. 1) Joshua Judson of Stratford, Conn. and 2) John Hurd, Jr. of Stratford and Woodbury, Conn.
In circa 1649, Hannah Tuttle, dau. of Richard, m. 1) John Pantry, s. of William and Margaret Pantry of Hartford, Conn. He d. testate betw. Sept. 1 and Nov. 25, 1653 at Hartford leaving three infant children who would be raised by their stepfather: John Pantry, Hannah Pantry (d. unm.) and Mary (Pantry) Mix.
On June 23, 1654 at Hartford, Hannah m. 2) the Hon. Thomas Welles, Jr., s. of Gov. Thomas Welles and Alice Tomes, [*2] b. in England. He d. intestate at Hartford bef. Aug. 20, 1668. He is referred to in the records as the "Worshipful" Thomas Welles. They had seven children: Rebecca (Welles) Judson, Thomas, Sarah (Welles) Bidwell, Ichabod, Samuel, Jonathan (d. unm) and Joseph.
During the entirety of her second marriage, Hannah (Tuttle)(Pantry)Welles' mother-in-law, her 2nd husband's step-mother, was Elizabeth (Deming)(Foote) Welles, the memorialist's ancestor. Elizabeth died testate at Hartford in 1683 just 12 days before Hannah. Two of Hannah's grandchildren, by dau. Sarah (Welles) Bidwell, m. grandchildren of two additional sets of ancestors of the memorialist.
[*1] The Connecticut Quarterly, IV (1898):85; The Ancient Burying Ground of Hartford - Welles, Hannah, died 1683, age 50. The associated 1835 standing gravestone list was compiled by Mary K. Talcott and also appears in the 1904 pamphlet "Restoration of the Ancient Burying Ground and Widening of Gold Street."
[*2] Barbour in "Early Familes of Hartford, Conn." (early 1900s), p. 657, calls his mother as Elizabeth Hunt. Jacobus in "Hale, House..." (1952, p. 778) clearly identifies her as Alice Tomes, dau. of John and Ellen (Gunne)(Phelps) Tomes, with accompanying ancestry.
