The Nutting Family of New England

John Nutting (Generation 1 - America)
John Nutting  (Generation 1) son of John Nutting and Sarah Rawlings
There is said to be among the Winthrop Papers a copyhold deed to “John Nutton (Nutting) a lifelong tenant of the one moiety of the lands of Groton Manor” given at the time when John Winthrop, later the Governor of Massachusetts, succeeded his father, Adams Winthrop, Esq., as lord of the monor of Groton, in Suffolk, England   The date of the deed is 1618.    The grantee is called John Nutton, Senior.  This implies a John Nutton/Nutting, Jr. was living in 1618, and of age.  If not, the distinction of Senior would not have been used.  If living in 1618, the John Nutting of New England would have been a very young child.  Hence his connection with the Nuttings of old Groton cannot be proven.   It is said that the name of Nutting does not appear in the Parish Register of Groton. (NG/Nutting Genealogy of Groton, Massachusetts by Homer Brainard/1927)

In a letter dated, June 20, 1623, John Winthrop, the later Governor, writing to his son John who was a student at Trinity College, Dublin, says: “Commend me to my little cousins and to my god-daughter Susannah Nutton”.  It does not appear whether Susannah was a wife or a daughter of a Nutting. (NG)

The earliest date that can be certainly assigned to John Nutting of New England is therefore the date of his marriage in 1650.  He appears to have lived a few years at Woburn, Massachusetts, but before June 29, 1656, he had removed to Westford, Massachusetts where some of his descendants have lived.  On July 13, 1565, John Nutting and his wife were received into full communion with the Chelmsford Church, Reverend John Fiske, Pastor.   The weeks later three of his children were baptized and in 1659 another child. (NG)

On November 9, 1661, James Parker, John Nutting and James Fiske asked the Chelmsford Church for leave to remove and for their prayer for a blessing on their undertaking.   Thereupon the brethren objected, demanding their reason for removal.  Brother Parker answered that each of them had personal reasons, but in the main all agreed that it was because of several things pressing upon their spirit in reference to Church administration, and added that if he could not enjoy all ordinances and their administration according to rule, he for his part would not remove.  Brother Nutting also offered his remote location as a reason for removal; having several small children, he and his wife were deprived of the ordinances of religion and he wished to swell near the meetinghouse.   The Church could not agree upon any action.  There had eventually been disagreements or controversy of which we are not informed.  It was finally voted that “if the brethren concerned shall in the meantime settle themselves in the proposed way, we shall lease the matter with god” (NG)

It is most probable that these three men had already made precautions for the homes at Groton, Massachusetts. They would not, having wives and small children removed as winter was coming on, unless they had provided shelter for them.  Then too, they must be on the ground in season for the next year’s crop and harvest.  The exact date of their removal is not known, but by September 21, 1663, John Nutting was established in a home near the meetinghouse in Groton, Massachusetts, for on that date the town voted that “the said John shall keep clean or cause it to be kept clean, and for his labor he is to have fourteen shillings.”  In June 1663, John Nutting had expressed his disapproval of the town’s vote to call Mr. Willard to be their minister.  During the Summer he and James Fiske were laboring to lay out a highway to Chelmsford, for which they were to have twenty shillings.  In November of 1663, he was with four others chosen Selectman and Constable, which made him rate-maker and Tax Collector. (NG)

December 15, 1669, he was on the committee to see that Mr. Willard, the town minister, had his maintenance well and truly paid to him.   On March 7, 1672/1673, the town sequestered for use as a common about and around the meetinghouse some land that was bounded by John Nutting.   This shows that he was still living on the lot “nigh unto the meetinghouse” as he had desired when we was about to remove from Chelmsford in 1661.  On December 11, 1675, he was elected with others as Surveyor/Inspector of Highways and on December 10, 1673, as Fence Viewer.  These facts give us some insight into John Nutting’s life and character as a man and pioneer, at least worthy and respectable.  (NG)

The Town of Groton at that time comprised some 41,000 acres of land.  James Parker, the wealthiest, had a fifty acre-right and John Nutting a seventeen acre-right.  This does not mean that James Parker owned but fifty acres and John Nutting but seventeen.  As there were about four hundred acre-rights in all, each acre-right was entitled to about fifty four acres, pro rata, in the subsequent “divisions” or stock dividends in land.  This would entitle John Nutting to about four hundred acres of land (actually over nine hundred), or possibly more, as in regard to quality of the land as well as to actual acreage.  Transition affirms that he had a tract extending from Maunmux Spring to the Nashua River, large tracts to the west of the river in what is now Pepperell and land to the north end of Baddycock. (NG)

It is said that his house was a fortified garrison, a place where people could gather in times of danger from the Indians …Groton, Massachusetts was on the frontier at that time and such danger was very real.  The house was perhaps built like a blockhouse with a projecting upper story, loop-holes in the walls for musketry and a stockade around it.  It was this obligation that lead to his death.  The Indian Wars were known as The King Philip’s War which began in the early Spring of 1676, after a long preliminary warning.  Trouble began at Groton, Massachusetts, March 2, 1676.  On the 13th, a force of four hundred Indians attacked Groton by stealth as was their habit … Nutting’s house and others were captured and John Nutting was shot to death in its defense.  It is said that his head was severed and put upon a pole.  The women and children escaped with others later to the safer settlements.  The eldest son was married at this time and cared for his own.  He and his brother James returned to Groton at the re-settlement.  The younger children did not return to Groton.  Mrs. Nutting probably went to Woburn, where her mother was living.  Her mother, Mrs. Jane Cole, widow of Eggleston, of James Briton and of Isaac Cole, died at Woburn, March 10, 1678.  Sister Ruth, wife of Samuel Blodgett, may have lived at the same place. (NG)

John Nutting left no Will.  At a court held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, April 1, 1684, administration was granted to John and James Nutting on the Estate of John Nutting, late of Groton, deceased.  On December 4, 1716, James Nutting of Groton, Ebenezer Nutting of Medford, Jonathan Nutting of Cambridge, John Stone and Sarah (Nutting) Stone and Jacob Taylor and Deborah Nutting Taylor of Groton, the children of John Nutting of Groton aforesaid, deceased and intestate, for L60 paid by our brother John Nutting of Groton conveyed to him all their interests in the Estate of John Nutting lying in Groton (Middlesex Deeds, Volume 18, page 290).  This deed is evidence for his legal heirs that were living as of December 14, 1716. (NG)

(Soldier’s in the King Philip War, Chapter 6, Part 11)
On March 9th the Indians again appeared at Groton, doing some mischief, and again on the 13th in full force, and destroyed all the houses in town except the garrison houses, and one even of these, from which, however, the people had escaped. I think that Major Willard marched up from Watertown with Capt. Cook's force on the 12th or 13th, and arrived at Groton on the 14th, as the Indians retired on that day, apparently aware of the approaching force. The people got safely within their garrisons before the attack, and but one man, John Nutting, was killed. The town was abandoned within a few days, and the inhabitants removed to the towns nearer the coast. Major Willard, with his family, removed to Charlestown. It is likely that he had removed his family some time before the destruction of his house, on the 13th, as that stood in an exposed position, and his son Samuel Willard, the minister of Groton, had another of the garrisoned houses.

Ebenezer Nutting   (Generation 2)
son of John Nutting and Sarah Elizabeth Eggleston
EBENEZER NUTTING, a blacksmith by trade, was described in a Deed, as of Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1697 … His Estate was settled July 6, 1733 (CAMB)
EBENEZER NUTTING settled first in part of Cambridge, now known as Lexington, then called Cambridge Farms.  He and his wife owned the covenant there in 1699 and had four children baptized before 1703.  On May 26, 1703, he exchanged land with George Blanchard, conveying to him forty-three acres of land in Cambridge and receiving a tract of land in Medford, approximately five acres with a dwellinghouse thereon and approximately twelve acres lying within the limits of Charlestown (Middlesex Deeds, Volume 15, Page 101).  In this Deed, Ebenezer Nutting is called a Blacksmith, as in several other deeds, but in the Deed of December 5, 1716, he is called a “practitioner of physic”.  He left no Will but there are Probate Records regarding its settlement in the record office at East Cambridge.  Deed of 1716 and 1718, call him a doctor, but previous and later Deeds indicated him as a Blacksmith by trade.

John Nutting   (Generation 3)
son of Ebenezer Nutting and Lydia _____________
(Printed volumes of the records of Medford, Massachusetts gives Josiah Nutting’s birth date as February 28, 1705/06 and that of his brother John as of April 23, 1709.  It would seem that some error occurred, for the age of John Nutting at death gives a birth date almost precisely that given of Josiah Nutting.)  (NG)
JOHN NUTTING-3, learned the trade of tanner and in 1737, as shown by Deeds, he was living in Marblehead, Massachusetts and in 1741 in Chelsea, Massachusetts.  John Taylor and Sarah, his wife, sold to John Nutting of Marblehead, Massachusetts, a tanner, for land in Westford, Massachusetts, dated November 7, 1737.  A house was probably on the land as Sarah Taylor, wife of Jacob, the grantor, signed the deed to him.   John Nutting seems to have settled at Westford, Massachusetts at this time as shown by another Deed: John Nutting of estford, Massachusetts, a tanner, to Isaac Williams of Groton, Massachusetts, land formerly belonging to my grandfather, John Nutting, deceased, and mentions land as belonging to his father Ebenezer Nutting, deceased (Middlesex County Deeds, Volume 54, Page 75) (NG)
JOHN NUTTING-3, according to a Deed of his brother James Nutting, dated 1741, John is called of Chelsea, Massachusetts.  It may be that we went there for a time, but in 1748/1749 he was in Westford, Massachusetts.   John Nutting of Westford, Massachusetts became quite prosperous.  He became an Ensign, and an Officer in the Militia.   He is called in Deeds: a tanner, yeoman and gentleman.  John Nutting of Westford, Massachusetts, a gentleman, for love and affection to my daughter Hannah Nutting, my eight day clock that remains in my possession until my death. (January 1, 1774, Middlesex County Deeds, Volume 79, Page 505).  This is probably a tall clock or grandfather clock.  John Nutting left no Will, but settlement of his Estate appears on Probabe Records: Wife, Hannah Nutting was Administratrix.

The Troop Family of New England

John Troop (Generation 1)
The genealogy of The Troop Family as told by Waldron M. Troop … “Dating back to the Revolutionary War of 1775, a John Troop who lived in Scotland, who came South from the hills to a cooperage, as he was a skilled barrel-maker.  At that time he was taken by the British and pressed into the Army and sent to the City of Boston, Massachusetts to serve as a British Officer … He later married an Irish woman and settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts.  Around 1778-1779, they had two sons, John and William Troop.  At about that time in the year of 1780 the British came over to Massachusetts and picked up their soldiers and were taken back to England and he was never heard from again, leaving a wife and two sons at Ipswich, Massachusetts.”

To date, we are not sure if John Troop married after fulfilling his obligation to the British Army.  Checking the Ipswich and Salem, Massachusetts Vital Records, no marriage record is shown. We do locate the baptism in both Salem and Ipswich, Massachusetts for William Troop, only … The report that John Troop returned to England after the Revolutionary War is not correct.  We locate through the Town Clerk and the Vital Records of Concord, Massachusetts: John Troop died in Concord, Massachusetts, April 3, 1826.

The name of John Troop’s wife is unknown at this time but it has been stated that she and her two boys loaded their belongings on a scow and sailed down the Ipswich River and up the Kennebec River to what is now known as “Beach Hill” near or part of Pittston, Maine, no further record of the mother after this date.   This information has not been proven.

There have been several researchers who believe that John Troop may have been the son of Valentine Troop and Catherine Church, indicating that John Troop’s wife name is Eunice Fellows … To date I have not found the connection that confirms this information either the Vital or Church Records in Maine and Massachusetts …

William Mitchell lived at Isles of Shoals and at Black Point, Scarborough where he was killed by Indians in his field in 1724 … York County Deeds show that on October 2, 1683, property on Smuttynose Island was conveyed to William Mitchell by a Peter Lewis.  On October 31, 1702, the property was sold by William and Honor Mitchell to Phillip Carpenter of the Isles of Shoals …. William Mitchell reported to be living in Kittery, Maine in 1715, but in 1717 he is found in Scarborough.  He was in Scarborough in January 1724 when his mother deeded to him property in Kittery, Maine where she was dwelling.  This property was formerly owned by William’s grandfather, John Andrews …. The date of William’s second marriage is uncertain, his oldest child, Israel is established on the basis of his marriage date of 1730, to have been born around 1710.  It is clear, however, that it was prior to 1716 as on August 22, 1715, William and his second wife Elizabeth acquired the tract of land in Scarborough at Black Point and also land along the Spurwink River … The lack of specific dates of William’s marriages and birth dates of his children make the distribution of his children between the two families not so clear as would be desired … The distribution follows the data recorded in “Descendants of Edward Small” … William was married to Honor ___________ before 1702 in Kittery, Maine.
