There is no mention of a NUTTING family in the scant genealogical notices tagged onto the end of Sewall's "History of Woburn". But there is a short notice of a Myles NUTT described as a proprietor of Watertown, who was taxed in Woburn at the Town rate in Dec. of 1644. He was also a selectman in Woburn in 1647 and for the next 7-9 years. He died in Malden at age 73.
No mention of a connection to Nuttings Lake.
But at the site for "Unofficial Names of MA Communities" there is a listing for:
Nutting's Pond/Billerica/Middlesex/P. O. , and it can be found at the link below. Click on the "N" for Nuttings to locate it.
