Tutty / Totty of Cape Breton

Posted: 1349375056000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Totty, Tutty
I am inquiring for research for my friend from California -
His ancestors immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts 1856 -1857. We are aware that there is no census in Cape Breton earlier than 1861. We are also contacting researcher at Beaton. Hope to Connect with other descendants with info.
------------ THOMAS TOTTY/TUTTY ---born in Cape Breton born unknown - (but guessing it is before 1820)
We find no record of him in the US with his family. Date of birth is unknown but his wife was born in 1820. The oldest son in the US that we have found is James was born in Jan 1849 so they had to be married before 1848 in Cape Breton. We find Thomas's name on his children wedding registers but do not find him on any US census or directory. So either he immigrated and died before records, or he died in Cape Breton and family came separately.
His WIFE--> JESSIE (or Jane) MCINTOSH born in Cape Breton 1820
– immigrated around 1857 to Boston, Massachusetts. ------------------------------->
We find the following 4 Totty children according to 1870 US census. We know there could have been other children born in Cape Breton.------------
JAMES TOTTY + born 9 Jan 1849 - Cape Breton
[married Elizabeth Wake in US] ++++++++++++

ANNIE TOTTY + born 1850 – Cape Breton
[married Daniel McGregor in US] +++++++++

JOHN THOMAS TOTTY + April 1854 – Cape Breton
[married Lillie Coburn in US} +++++++

JOHANNA OR JOSEPHINE Born about 1857 Cape Breton
[no record of her after US Census 1870]

============================== [Note: The two sons took up occupation as potters.]=======

To wrap up here is the only information we know about other TUTTY families in Cape Breton. We believe are related due to the names..... meaning that the Totty family of possibly immigrated from Main-a-dieu, Cape Breton area.
