This book has a great deal of information re my ancestors. I’ll go into detail in future posts.
William Tuttle – My 9X Great Grandfather May 14, 2017
William Tuttle, 1607-1673 departed Northampton England to sail on the “Planter” to arrive in Boston 1635. He was accompanied by his wife Elizabeth and 3 children. Later he settled in New Haven.
I have just participated in a 2 day workshop on Rosemaling Painting – a Norwegian folk art tradition. I kept thinking of our years in Bhutan where we were absolutely surrounded by a rich tradition of traditional painting. And I kept thinking of the art of calligraphy and the art traditions of China and Japan. I’m prompted to explore the connections between these various traditions and influences and interconnections.

This marker is for my 9th Great Grandfather. This is intriguing because I vaguely remember visiting relations named Botsford in the Boston area. I will pursue this further.
