David Tuttle


The household of David Tuttle was configured on the Albany census of the first ward in 1800. It counted a boy 10-16, a man over 45, a girl under ten, and a woman between 26 and 45. Thus, this individual was born prior to 1756. We seek information on his origins and path to Albany. Perhaps he had some connection to the older Albany loyalist Stephen Tuttle.

Several same-named contemporaries are at risk in the region and in Connecticut and New Jersey. In addition, four households headed by men named David Tuttle were configured on the first Federal Census in 1790 for Southold in Suffolk County. In 1800, one David Tuttle was named on the Southhold census.

He probably married [nd] Mary Walker of Ashford, CT? If so, they had at least six children. In that context, the individual was identified as a resident of Albany

In April 1798, David Tuttle was identified as a "victualer" on a list of potential jurors before the Albany Mayor's Court. In 1799, the houselot and property of a "William Tuttle" was valued on the first ward assessment roll near the location of David Tuttle's household in 1800.

This individual left a faint but distinct imprint on the community-based record in the years around 1800. Beyond that, we have not yet uncovered additional information for the one-time Albany resident named David Tuttle.
