Family tradition holds that John arrived on the ill fated voyage of the Angel Gabriel in 1635, though there is no direct evidence. He may also have arrived with other Dover Planters in Salem at about the same time. In any event, he is the immigrant ancestor of the New Hampshire Tuttle line, and was established at Dover Neck by 1640.

Notable for founding the longest continuously operating family farm in America. For more information, see Tuttle's Red Barn.
