|In 1661 in England, John Nuthall purchased from Thomas
Cornwalleys 4200 acres of land in Maryland consisting of the manors of
Cornwalleys Cross and St. Elizabeth's. He thus became owner of "Cross Manor,
a handsome brick manor house built in 1642. This home was still standing
in St. Marys, Maryland in the early 1990s. It was said to be the oldest
existing house in Maryland. John Nuthall died between 5 June 1667 and
10 October 1667 at Cross Manor, St. Mary's, Maryland.
He was a gentleman, who was known as an Indian trader and a merchant, as well as an interpreter.

Nuthall coat of arms
Cattenhall was a manor in Cheshire near Kingsley, originally belonging to the Vernons of Shipbroke and later held by the abbots of Chester, who subinfeudated it to the Gerrards of Kingsley. In the time of Edward III the Griffin family bought it from the Gerrards and it passed from them through a female heir to the Nuthalls.

|Nu10||John Nuthall (c1614-1667) was born at Cattenhall and christened
in Stockport on February 10, 1614. He was about thirty when his father
died, and being the second son would not have stood to inherit much. He
came to Virginia around 1629 as an indentured servant (age about 15) to
Hugh Hayes (possibly a relative, then age about 21) and lived at first
in Accomac County but ran away and joined a group of Indians in Maryland,
supposedly learning their language before he was tracked down and brought
back to Hayes, "well strapped with ye halyards." Here is testimony given
in 1664 in an unrelated court case which was trying to determine the identity
of the Pocomoke River, in a boundary dispute:
"Capt. William Jones, justice of peace and quorum in his majis county of North'ton, Virginia, doth declare on oath, y't about thirty-five or thirty-six years since hee did offten sale a trading w'th ye Indians in ye bay of Chessapiack, and well knew ye river Pokomoke, w'ch lyeth to ye Southward of a little point described in Capt. Smith's Mapp w'thout a name, and is so far Southward as a man can see from ye place described in Capt. Smith's Mapp for Watkins point; and doth decirm y't ye said river of Pokomoke was then soe called, and noe such name as ye river Wighco, either at y't time tyme or in ye memory of man before, was applyed to ye river of Pokomoke, and y't ever since ye said river, soe scituated as aforesaid, hath bin and is called by ye name of Pocomoke river. And farthermore this deponent saith, y't in the time hee was a married man and a trader in y't bay of Chessapeak, John Nutwell was a boy and servant to Hugh Hays, and was run away from his said master, and this deponent gave a hoe to ye Indians for ye said Nutwell, and brought him home again, well straped w'th ye hallyards. Soe farr this deponent maketh oath. /s/ Will. Jones Sworne in open court ye 18th of July, 1664" [Henry A. Wise, et al., Report and Accompanying Documents of the Virginia Commisioners Appointed to Ascertain the Boundary Line Between Maryland and Virginia (with Appendix, Atlas) (Richmond, Virginia: 1873), Appendix - pp. 78 - 79. Also see Clayton Torrance, Old Somerset on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, p. 486.]
John Nuthall was still in Stafford County, Virginia, in 1640. He was
married in Maryland about January 1644 to Elizabeth Bacon, ??daughter
of Nathaniel Bacon and granddaughter
of Reverend James Bacon and Martha Woodward (not Honywood, as many sources
report; her mother was a Honywood). and widow of John Holloway. (I do have
some doubts about that early date: note that their first child was not
born before 1648.) They were the parents of see below

||Birckenhead of Huxley
This family originated in Birkenhead, a township in Bidston Parish, Wirral Hundred, Cheshire, directly across the Mersey from Liverpool. At the time of Edward III, John de Birkenhead held property there, but I can find no pedigree; the Visitation of Cheshire begins about a century later with Henry Birckenhead, father of another Henry Birckenhead, father of Adam Birckenhead (died p1509), who married Alice, daughter and heiress of John Huxley of Huxley, a manor in Cheshire which also much later produced the famous Huxley family (Thomas Henry, Aldous, etc). They were the parents of seven children: (1) John, one son, one granddaughter, no further descendants; (2) Henry, whose descendants eventually inherited Huxley and the other family properties; many lines in both Cheshire and Ireland; (3) Hugh, ancestor of the Birkenheads of Rivington, Lancashire; (4) Sir Ralph Birkenhead (died p1505), recorder of Chester, had descendants; (5) Margaret, married Thomas Touchet of Whitley; (6) Alice, married John Whitmore of Thurstanton; and (7) our ancestor Elizabeth, married Thomas Hurlton or Hurleston of Hurleston - their daughter Alice married Richard Nuthall (c1516-p1560).
The modern Earls of Birkenhead are not related.
The arms are described as: Sable, three garbs argent, a bordure engrailed
of the second.
