Burke's General Armory lists Jackson Villiers TUTHILL of Dublin, Ireland:

 
ARMS:
Quarterly, 1st and 4th, azure on a bend cotised or, a lion passant sable between two trefoils slipped vert, for TUTHILL; 2nd and 3rd, argent on a cross gules, five escallops or, a trefoil in the canton vert, for VILLIERS.
 
CRESTS:
1st, TUTHILL: Out of a coronet composed of a rose in the centre two trefoils and two thistles, flowered heads or, a wolf's head sable;
2nd, VILLERS: Out of a ducal coronet or, a demi lion rampant argent ducally crowned or, armed and langued gules.
[The crests are more complicated than my 'cut and paste and place' drawing skills can manage in a reasonable amount of time. Perhaps later... DBT]
 
MOTTOES:
Over the crests: Fidei coticula crux; under the arms: Vincere aut mori.

Because this coat of arms is described in one of the British Isles reference books, it is the one most commonly (? always), but erroneously, offered by Halbert's Inc. and the 'mall kiosk' folk as the official 'TUTTLE' coat of arms. The 'heirloom plate' which I received also depicts the Tuthill quartering with the trefoils on the azure field, an improper blazoning1. This picture correctly shows the trefoils on the bend argent.

1The simplest rules of blazonry require metal on color or color on metal, never color on color or metal on metal.
