Lydia M. Cartland, b. 1831 Windham, Maine; second wife of William Penn Tuttle, Dover, New Hampshire

Lydia M. Cartland was born 20 October 1831 at Windham, Maine, the daughter of Charles and Miriam (Robinson) Cartland, both born in New Hampshire.


Below are a reprint of a post on Lydia Cartland at the blog Heirlooms Reunited and family trees for Lydia and her husband William Penn Tuttle.

Cabinet Photo of Lydia Cartland, who married William Penn Tuttle

Cabinet photograph of Lydia Cartland by the Drew studio of Dover, New Hampshire, so likely taken after her 1872 marriage to William Penn Tuttle of the famed Tuttle Farm of Dover, New Hampshire.

I found this photograph with three related ones; click on the name to see the photograph of that person:

  • Lydia's brother, Isaiah Cartland, discussed in my previous post
  • Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham, Isaiah's daughter who married William Graham.  The ID gives birth and death dates for Mary.
  • William T. Graham, son of Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham and husband William Graham.  He married Lucy Ellen Cartland, his second cousin, I believe.  

Two of the photographs mention Ruth, daughter of William T. Graham, so before they ended up in an antique shop, they must have been in the possession of a relative or friend of Ruth Graham.

From online research, hopefully correct:

Lydia M. Cartland was born 20 October 1831 in Windham, Maine, the daughter of Charles and Miriam (Robinson) Cartland.  Her paternal grandparents were Peltiah and Anna (Hanson) Cartland.  Her maternal grandparents were Stephen and Content (Alley) Robinson.  

In 1872, Lydia became the second wife of William Penn Tuttle, who was born and died on the Tuttle Farm in Dover, New Hampshire.   He was born 26 June 1823, the son of Joseph and Sarah (Pinkham) Tuttle. His paternal grandparents were William and Anna (Hanson) Tuttle.  His maternal grandparents were Joseph and Elizabeth "Betsey" (Green) Pinkham.
William Penn Tuttle had a son from his first marriage to Mary Varney, but that child died young.  Lydia died in 1896, and William then married Hannah Coffin Hanson.  After his death in 1910 or 1911, the farm passed to his nephew George W. Tuttle, who had been managing it for some years before then.
