Misc. Notes
According to Threlfall’s GMC50318, Miles Nutt “was baptized 7 May 1598 at Barking, Suffolk, England. He married there 16 July 1623, Sarah Branson. They and their one daughter, Sarah, came to New England by 1636 in which year he was a proprietor of Watertown and received a grant in the first distribution and each successive one. He had a 51 acre farm and several other smaller parcels. On 17 May 1637 he was admitted freeman. He then moved to Woburn where he became a proprietor in 1645. He was a selectman in 1647 and during seven of the next nine years. He next moved to Charlestown where he was one of the petitioners in favor of the freedom of the church. His wife died and he married secondly, presumably at Malden about January 1658/9, Sybil, the widow of John Bible and the daughter of John and Margey (Rodford) Tincknell. She was born at Wedmore, Somerset, England, and baptized there on 2 August 1607. She had a daughter, Anne, wife of Robert Jones. At the time of their marriage, Miles Nutt and Sybil made a contract in which he agreed that she should have his house in Malden for the rest of her life and half his estate in the event he died first, or to her daughter Anne is she died first. [A transcript of that agreement appears here, with a facsimile of Miles Nutt’s mark.]

“[p. 248] Miles Nutt made his will 1 February 1660/61 and in it confirmed his marriage contract with his wife and then left the remainder of his estate to his daughter Sarah, wife of John Wyman, for life, then to her children. He signed by mark. He died at Malden on 2 July 1671, ‘aged about 73’. [A transcript of Miles Nutt’s will appears here.]

“She remained a widow for three years, then she married thirdly at Malden in 1674, John Doolittle, his second wife. She died 23 September 1690, ‘aged about 82 years’, at Malden.”
