Nathaniel and Lydia Tilden lived in Scituate, MA, and were Puritan immigrants. They migrated to Massachusetts Bay in 1635 on the Hercules of Sandwich (on 4 March 1634/5, "Nathaniel Tilden of Tenterden in Kent, yeoman, & Lidia his wife," children "Joseph, Thomas, Stephen, Marie, Sara, Judeth [and] Lidia," and servants "Tho[ma]s Lapham, Geo[rge] Sutton, Edw[ar]d Ford, Edw[ar]d Jeakins, Sara Couchman, Marie Perien [and] James Bennet," were enrolled at Sandwich as passengers for New England on the Hercules) (Source: FindAGrave).

      George Sutton served as a servant in the party of Nathaniel Tilden (his future father-in-law) of Tenterden, Kent Co., England. He sailed in 1634 on the Hercules of Sandwich , Kent Co., England, and landed in Massachusetts that year. He may have been one of those poorer Puritans who often worked their passage to America with wealthier relatives or friends. Within two years of the settlement group at Scituate, Massachusetts, he married Sarah Tilden, daughter of Nathaniel Tilden. "While some researchers think George Sutton was a Quaker and left England for religious reasons, no evidence of same has been uncovered. There is no proof of that speculation and indeed according to The History of Scituate the first Quakers did not arrive there until the Suttons had left the area. ... Although there is no direct evidence for any Quaker activities for George Sutton, his disappearance from Plymouth Colony records occurred at a time when Quaker activities were increasing there and some of his descendants became Quakers in NC." George Sutton is in the 1643 Scituate List of men able to Bear Arms.
