There is a pond in Manchester New
Hampshire named after the Nutt family (Nutt's Pond) who used to live in that area.
A section of what is now known as Manchester NH was called "Nutfield"
in the earliest days of the settlement. According to GoffesFalls.org, the section
of South Willow Street near this pond was in early days called
NUTT was born abt 1698 in Londonderry, Ulster, North Ireland and d. 26 Oct
1751 in Chester, Rockingham Co NH. He m. 29 May 1723 in Bradford, Essex Co MA
by Rev. Symmes to Jane/Jean COLBATH. She b. abt 1703 in Bradford MA, and died
Oct 1771 in St. George, Knox Co, ME. (Her name was spelled in various ways:
Galbreath, Galbraith, etc.) She came from Newington NH. William NUTT was a
weaver and ran the first fulling mill at Londonderry NH and later owned it. A
descendant, Charles Nutt, wrote: "I have studied the English records of the
Nutt family and I have about concluded that the ancestors of William-1 Nutt were
in Ireland, probably Aghadoney, County Londonderry, for two or three generations,
coming there from England. They undoubtedly descended from the family to which
King Canute or Knut belonged. Back in 1100 the name was spelled Knut, Knot, Knutte,
etc., but by 1300 it was definitely Nutt or Nutte..." [Note: a James and
Anna (Haines) McNutt who emigrated about 1720 from the North of Ireland to Newton,
Mass. might be related. William named or gave the name James as a middle name
to his children]

Co NH, and d. 13 Sep 1801 in Newport, Sullivan Co NH. [The Taylor genealogy states
"he had seventeen children of whom the following nine, starting with William,
were by Elizabeth. No information obtained as to the eight children by his first
wife. This cannot be correct]. Samuel Nutt was the ninth settler in Francestown
NH, arriving there in 1767, and the first Town Clerk. The first record book of
the town, in which is his plain and heavy handwriting, was still extant in 1909.
He was a carpenter by trade and with his father owned the first sawmill in Chester
NH. The history of Francestown NH states:"In 1767 Samuel Nutt moved here,
and settled on the Kingsbury place, near the present New Boston line, the place
now occupied by Oliver Pettee. On the "cellar" which seems to have been
"prepared" for a considerable time previous, a framed house was erected
this year, and so far finished as to be occupied before winter. Mr. Nutt being
a carpenter, was like the shoe-maker that went barefoot, doing work for other
people at the sacrifice of delaying his own. He came from Derryfield (Manchester),
was of Scotch race; was a very useful man in the new community, and was the first
town clerk in Francestown [in 1772]. He was tithingman in New Boston in 1770."
Also, from the same source, July 22, 1771 he was among 39 men who signed a petition
to Gov. John Wentworth requesting the setting off of their area, known as "New
Addition" and part of "Society" land into a new township [which
was granted as the township of Francestown.]; on Dec 2, 1772 he signed a document
with other petitioners proposing a tax on the residents to help build the meeting-house.
In Oct 1772 he was chosen one of a committee of 5 to arrange for land for a meeting-house
and graveyard. In October 1772 his town tax of 1:8:6 was sent to the constable,
John Brown for collection [along with that of many others]. On August 21, 1775
he is among the signers of a document addressed to the Provincial Congress at
Exeter regarding disagreement with other local towns on their choice of regimental
officers. On April 7, 1777 the town chose a committee of 5 to "receive the
accounmpts [accounts] and prisse the turns of the men that Has ben into the Searvice
With out aney town bounty," one of whom was Samuel Nutt. In 1788 he is among
the list of those purchasing a pew in the meeting-house. Sept 7, 1779 he was appointed
one of a committee to set prices of sundry articles. On Feb 4, 1788 he was one
of a committee "to take Into Consideration, the Federal Constitution."
On Feb 15, 1790 he was one of a committee to "Build a Stage to ordain mr.
Bradford [their preacher] on." He was on the tax list of 1793.

Elizabeth --. She b. abt 1820 in PA. An article in the July 20, 1951 issue of
the Nashua Telegraph states, "He enjoyed a full life, 75 years, before he
died. He moved with his parents to Amherst [NH] as a child, where his father and
mother operated a widely known, then of course, Nutt's Tavern. As a young man
he went into business early even in his school days, finding employment with Robert
Reed, who kept a country store in Amherst. He went to the Amherst schools and
then attended Pinkerton Academy at Derry where he completed his formal education.
At that time Pinkerton Academy was one of the most widely known schools in New
England. He came to Nashua [NH] in 1833 and went to work for Isaac Spalding who
operated a hardware store. Mr. Spalding sold out in 1837 and Mr. Nutt having accumulated
a small sum, branched out on his own, opening a merchant tailoring establishment...
In 1846 he sold out and bought the stock and good will of the successor in the
business established by his first employer. For the next 14 years he continued
the business at its old stand at the corner of Main and Factory Streets. In 1860
he purchased the property at the southeast corner of Main and Park Streets, and
built the block which still bears his name but which is now owned by A.B. Slawsby.
Most of the latter day residents of Nashua are largely familiar with his name
through the Nutt block. He ran his hardware store from that location until 1889,
three years before his death, when he sold out due to failing health. In the years
before Nashua became a city, 1846, 1847 and 1848 he served as town clerk. He was
director of the Pennichuck State Bank, the First National Bank, the Nashua Light,
Heat and Power Company, the Pennichuck Water Company, the Souhegan National Bank
of Milford, and a trustee of the City Savings Bank and the New Hampshire Banking
Company. He was a Republican in politics and a Unitarian in religion. At his death
he left money for the creation of a Charles
H. Nutt Surgical Hospital. This building was completed in 1952 and was connected
to the present Nashua Memorial Hospital. The building was designed by Alfred T
Granger Associates, architects of Hanover NH.

ABOUT GEORGE WASHINGTON MORRISON NUTT:
The story of another of Barnum's
greatest hits must
be told in his own words: "In December, 1861," he related, "I
was visited at the Museum by a most remarkable dwarf, who was a sharp, intelligent
little fellow, with a deal of drollery and wit. He had a splendid head, was perfectly
formed, and was very attractive, and, in short, for a 'showman,' he was a perfect
treasure. His name, he told me, was George Washington Morrison Nutt, and his father
was Major Rodnia Nutt, a substantial farmer, of Manchester, New Hampshire. I was
not long in dispatching an efficient agent to Manchester, and in overcoming the
competition with other showmen who were equally eager to secure this extraordinary
pigmy. The terms upon which I engaged him for three years were so large that he
was christened the $30,000 Nutt; I, in the meantime, conferring upon him the title
of Commodore. As soon as I engaged him, placards, posters and the columns of the
newspapers proclaimed the presence of 'Commodore Nutt' at the Museum. I also procured
for the Commodore a pair of Shetland ponies, miniature coachman and footman, in
livery, gold-mounted harness, and an elegant little carriage, which, when closed,
represented a gigantic English walnut. The little Commodore attracted great attention,
and grew rapidly in public favor. General Tom Thumb was then travelling in the
South and West. For some years he had not been exhibited in New York, and during
these years he had increased considerably in rotundity and had changed much in
his general appearance. It was a singular fact, however, that Commodore Nutt was
almost a fac-simile of General Tom Thumb, as he looked half-a-dozen years before.
Consequently, very many of my patrons, not making allowance for the time which
had elapsed since they had last seen the General, declared that there was no such
person as 'Commodore Nutt;' but that I was exhibiting my old friend Tom Thumb
under a new name.
Nutt enjoyed the joke very much. He would sometimes half admit the deception,
simply to add to the bewilderment of the doubting portion of my visitors.
was evident that here was an opportunity to turn all doubts into hard cash, by
simply bringing the two dwarf Dromios together, and showing them on the same platform.
I therefore induced Tom Thumb to bring his Western engagements to a close, and
to appear for four weeks, beginning with August 11, 1862, in my Museum. Announcements
headed 'The Two Dromios,' and 'Two Smallest Men, and Greatest Curiosities Living,'
as I expected, drew large crowds to see them, and many came especially to solve
their doubts with regard to the genuineness of the 'Nutt.' But here I was considerably
nonplussed, for, astonishing as it may seem, the doubts of many of the visitors
were confirmed! The sharp people who were determined 'not to be humbugged, anyhow,'
still declared that Commodore Nutt was General Tom Thumb, and that the little
fellow whom I was trying to pass off as Tom Thumb, was no more like the General
than he was like the man in the moon. It is very amusing to see how people will
sometimes deceive themselves by being too incredulous.
1862 I sent the Commodore to Washington, and, joining him there, I received an
invitation from President Lincoln to call at the White House with my little friend.
Arriving at the appointed hour, I was informed that the President was in a special
Cabinet meeting, but that he had left word if I called to be shown in to him with
the Commodore. These were dark days in the rebellion, and I felt that my visit,
if not ill-timed, must at all events be brief. When we were admitted, Mr. Lincoln
received us cordially, and introduced us to the members of the Cabinet. When Mr.
Chase was introduced as the Secretary of the Treasury, the little Commodore remarked:
" 'I suppose
you are the gentleman who is spending so much of Uncle Sam's money?'
'No, indeed,' said the Secretary of War, Mr. Stanton, very promptly; 'I am spending
'Well,' said Commodore Nutt, 'it is in a good cause, anyhow, and I guess it will
come out all right.'
apt remark created much amusement. Mr. Lincoln then bent down his long, lank body,
and taking Nutt by the hand, he said:
'Commodore, permit me to give you a parting word of advice. When you are in command
of your fleet, if you find yourself in danger of being taken prisoner, I advise
you to wade ashore.'
Commodore found the laugh was against him, but placing himself at the side of
the President, and gradually raising his eyes up the whole length of Mr. Lincoln's
very long legs, he replied:
'I guess, Mr. President, you could do that better than I could.' "
no place did extremes ever meet in a more practical sense than in the American
Museum. Commodore Nutt was the shortest of men; and at the same time the Museum
contained the tallest of women. Her name was Anna Swan, and she came from Nova
Scotia. Barnum first heard of her through a Quaker, who was visiting the Museum.
This visitor came to Barnum's office, and told him of a wonderful girl, only seventeen
years old, who lived near him at Pictou. Barnum soon sent an agent up there, who
brought the young lady back to New York. She was an intelligent girl, and, despite
her enormous stature, was decidedly good-looking. For a long time she was a leading
attraction at Barnum's Museum, and afterwards went to England and attracted great
web site regarding "Commodore" Nutt and his brother.
