Tuttle History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Tuttle surname comes from the Old Norse personal name "þorkell," made up of the elements "þórr," or "Thor," name of the Scandinavian god of thunder and "ketill," meaning "a cauldron." In northern England, the name came directly via Scandinavian settlers, whereas in the South this name arrived with the Normans. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from the Old English expression "tot-hyll" as in "dweller by the look-out hill." [1] "Many spots are so called in all parts of England. A hill with a good outlook against an enemy's approach." [2]

Early Origins of the Tuttle family

The surname Tuttle was first found in either Toot Hill, Essex; or Tothill, Lincolnshire and Middlesex; or at Tootle Height, Lancashire. The earliest record of the name was Giolber de Totehille, who was listed as a Knight Templar in 1185. [1] The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 list: Custance Totel in Cambridgeshire, 1273; and Roger Tothull in Oxfordshire. Later the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls list: Johannes de Totehill; Willelmus de Totehill; Johannes de Tutill; Agnes filius Thome de Totehil; and John de Totehill. [2]
