1851 Rev. Timothy Tuttle Sermon Book, Ledyard CT Congregational Church


This is a beautiful old original 16 page pamphlet entitled, "Sermon, preached August 14, 1851 by Timothy Tuttle, Pastor of the Congregational Church of Ledyard, Conn. It being the fortieth anniversary of his ordination." It was printed in Norwich by John W. Stedman (John Stedman) in 1851. A list of the church members is in the back of the pamphlet, and transcribed below.

The pamphlet has a paper sticker of its owner, IA Chapman. There are two early Chapman family members listed in the church records below: Hannah Chapman admitted in 1811 and deceased at the book's 1851 printing, and Prudence Chapman (Prudence Eddy, or Prudence Chapman Eddy) admitted to the church in 1817. We believe the owner of the book to be I.A. Chapman, as in Issac Chapman, also known as Isaac A. Chapman or Isaac Albert Chapman.

The story of the church indicates that Robert Allyn, Prudence Morgan, Priscilla Lee, Freelove Morgan and Anna Gallup (later Anna Williams) started the church, then the following members were added. An * asterisk below indicates they were deceased by this book's printing, in 1851. The date after name is the year of each of their church admission:

History of the Town of Ledyard, 1650-1900 By John Avery: "Reverend Tuttle lived to preach on the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination, and to do considerable ministerial work for two or three years longer. He died June 6, 1864. The parents of Mr. Tuttle were Joseph Tuttle, of East Haven, and Mary Granger, of Suffield. He was born, Nov. 29, 1781. The family moved to Durham when he was about eighteen years old. He was graduated, with high rank as a scholar, from Yale College in the class of 1808. (Yale College Alumni 1808) Under the instruction of his pastor, Mr. Smith, afterward Dr. Smith, he studied theology and fitted for the ministry. Mrs. Tuttle, in whom he had a faithful helpmate, was Miss Mary Norton, of Durham. The greater part of their married life was spent in the first house south of the Church, on the road leading to New London. Two daughters were born to them—Anna Maria, who became the wife of Rev. N.B. Cook, and Harriet Newell, who married Mr. Leonard Smith. Mrs. Tuttle died several years before her husband, Feb. 4, 1856, leaving him comparatively alone. But, in a few years a kind Providence opened the way for his oldest daughter and her husband to come and live with him. And by and by, as the infirmities of age came upon the venerable pastor, his son-in-law, Rev. Nehemiah B. Cook, became associated with him in carrying forward the ministerial work of the parish. Mr. Cook was born in Southhampton, L. I., Sept. 20th, 1793."

This is a wonderful piece of early historical Ledyard, Connecticut history. Ledyard is in New London County, located along the Thames River. A beautiful, rare and original antique 1851 piece.
