John Tuttle appears in the Banks book as coming from St. Albans,
Hertfordshire on the Planter and settling in Ipswich. The source given is a
manuscript in College of Arms, London.
There are also a number of John Tuttles in "Directory of the Ancestral Heads
of New England Families 1620-1700" compiled by Frank R. Holmes.
