    (The Nutt Line)

    William Nutt, immigrant ancestor, was born in or near Londonderry, Ireland. He came to this country when a young man with the first body of Scotch-Irish who settled at Nutfield, later Londonderry, New Hampshire. His family seems to have been in Ireland among the Scotch Presbyterians but a short time. The name is English, of Danish origin, dating back to the days of King Canute or Knut (meaning knot in English), as the name was spelled originally. The name of this branch of the family has been spelled Nutt since about 1500 and the principal home of the family was Kent, England. William Nutt was mayor of Canterbury in 1533 and it is likely that the family in Ireland belongs to the Kent family, for in the present generation a branch of the family lived across the Irish Sea in Barnstaple, Devonshire, and the writer has knowledge of the English origin of one other Protestant family of this name in Ireland.

    William Nutt was a fuller by trade, and was in the employ of Captain David Cargill, who established the first mulling mill in Londonderry. Nutt's homestead lot was drawn September 26, 1720, sixty acres, east of Exeliel Pond. He married, at Bradford, Massachusetts, where his former pastor, Rev. Thomas Symmes, was located, Jean Colbath CColbreath or Galbraith), May 29, 1723, the marriage being recorded at Londonderry. She was sister of the progenitor of Vice-President

    Henry Wilson, whose name was originally John Jeremiah Colbath. William Nutt worked for Cargill until the latter's death, when he bought the mill, August 15, 1733. In 1739 he sold out his mill and farm in Londonderry and became one of the first settlers of the adjoining town of Chester. About 1740 he and his son, John Nutt, built their saw mill at Chester. William Nutt died intestate October 26, 1751. His widow Jean was administratrix. She died at St. Georges, Eastward (near Thomaston, Maine), in 1771. She probably lived there with her son, Colonel David Nutt. Her son William, of Derryfield, New Hampshire, was administrator. Children: i. John, born 1724, died 1757; soldier in the French war. 2. Samuel, mentioned below. 3. Colonel David, 1728; in French way and revolution. 4. William, 1730. 5. Robert. 6. Nathaniel. 7. Benjamin. 8. Jean. 9. Mary, died young. 10. James, died young.

He bought the interests of the other heirs after his father's death. He bought a farm in Weare, New Hampshire, July 6, 1763, lived there a few years, and was a town officer in 1765. He moved a few miles to what is now Francestown, adjoining New Boston, in 1767, and was the seventh settler of Francestown, one of its incorporators, and its first town clerk. He was constable, tythingman, and on various town committees. He served in 1774 on the committee of safety, and was for a short time in the revolution. In 1780 he was called ensign on the records. He was on the committee for Francestown to consider the state constitution in 1788. His house on the old road from Francestown to New Boston now constitutes the ell part of a brick farm house. His farm is known as the Pettee place and is marked by magnificent elms which he is said to have planted.
