There have been several
individuals in the Tuttle and Tuthill lines with a registered
or otherwise recorded right to display coat armor. Artistic
renditions of their arms and the heraldic descriptions are
included here. William Tuttell of New Haven is in my own
direct line, but it is very unlikely that I am anything more
than a distant cousin of the 'rightful heir' to the arms.
All of the arms recorded for
the Tuttell / Tuttle and Tuthill lines share the main
features of a walking lion in black on a silver band with
narrow gold strips on each side. This similarity probably
indicates a common ancestor somewhere or when, but the
precise connections have never been documented.
