Notes for Jonathan Tuttle
Jonathan Tuttle moved to the north side of the Quinnipiac River ca 1670. He founded the village of North Haven and was allowed to charge travelers a fee to cross the bridge he had built across the Quinnipiac River.

About 1670, Jonathan began a settlement near the Quinnipiac River, in the southern part of the town of North Haven. Soon after, Ebenezer Blakeslee, John Humiston, Daniel and Thomas Barnes, Moses Brockett, and later the Clarks, Todds and others, settled near the center. All these families have intermarried, generation after generation and in many instances, relationships are unusually complicated. The settlement was very slow at first, and for many years, some of the planters buried their dead and attended church in New Haven. Jonathan built a bridge over the Quinnipiac River in North Haven, which was long known as Tuttle’s Bridge. By a decree of the court, he was allowed to demand of each traveler passing over it, horse and man, two pence in money or three pence pay in barter. An exception was made in favor of deputies going to court. He was also allowed to take moderate compensation for any refreshment of drink furnished to travelers, except strong drink.

On 20 February 1704(5) he conveyed to Joseph Tuttle, one-sixth part of the third division that was laid out to William Tuttle. Simon Tuttle was the administrator of his estate. 9
