THE LUTTRELLS IN AMERICA

Records of Luttrells in America begin in the last half of the 17th century.   

James "Latterell" is listed in Cavaliers and Pioneers, Vol. II as one of several "servants" brought into Virginia by Laurance Robinson in March of 1671/2.  Although his great-grandfather (or possibly, great-great-grandfather), Sir Thomas Luttrell of Luttrellstown, County Dublin, Ireland, was a man of great wealth and prominence, this fortune did not follow to James.  James' grandfather (or possibly, great-grandfather), Robert, was the younger brother of Simon Luttrell who inherited the Luttrellstown estate in 1554 (see "Parish of Clonsilla" on the Ireland page).  After the completion of his indentured service, James becomes a husband, father and a land-owner in Northumberland County, Virginia.  

Robert Luttrell was the son of Simon Luttrell (and a descendant of the Simon in the above paragraph) of Luttrellstown, County Dublin, Ireland, when he brought his wife, Ann Preston (daughter of Viscount Gormanston according to researcher Dr. Terril Littrell), to settle in Virginia in the late 17th century.  Their two sons (a third died early in life) Simon (b. 1682) and Richard (b. abt. 1690),  were more richly endowed than James (the immigrant) or his children.  Both Richard and Simon accumulated significant property in their lifetimes through inheritance and industry.

In the following century, descendants of these first American Luttrells take their families and are granted or purchase properties as they seek a better life in the new frontiers of America - Kentucky, Tennessee and beyond.

What proof is there that this Robert Luttrell was a son of Luttrellstown, County Dublin, Ireland?
___________________________________
In 1824, a James Luttrell, brother of Simon (who is in Ireland at this time) is shown as an immigrant to New Brunswick, Canada from Queens County, Ireland.  And, in 1837, James, the son of Simon Luttrell (born in Ireland) is born on Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Note: the names ""James", "Simon", "Robert" and "Richard" are very popular among the Luttrells in Ireland and America during this time period.

In the 1880's, an Alexander Luttrell from Ireland is a settler and "namer" of Emo, Ontario, Canada.
