"...He married Judith, daughter of Richard and Rose (Stoughton) Otis, a woman of ability and intelligence, niece of Sir Nicholas Stoughton, baronet, and granddaughter of Anthony Stoughton Esq., of Stoughton, in Surrey, England. Judith, at the time of the "Great Massacre in Dover" in 1689, when her father and mother, brother and sister were slain, and her father's garrison burned by the Indians, was taken captive with her two sisters, all young girls, and carried away; but the Indians were overtaken by a party of soldiers at Conway, on the way to Canada, and Judith and her two young sisters were rescued from their captors and brought back to Dover. Judith Tuttle was left a widow with six children, the eldest fourteen, and the youngest two years old. They were: Mary, Thomas, Judith, John, Dorothy, Nicholas and James."
Specific accounts of the Cocheco Massacre do not indicate Judith's mother as slain. Indeed, by that time her mother had already passed on and her father was married to his third wife, Grizzel Warren.
