Hi Chris, First I'm really a Tuthill and there is a difference but that's another story. I hate to disapoint you but if the Chesney's are related to the Tuthill's its really a far distant one. But you did mention the Hawkins and it was here that I found a tie because they do list the De Chesney name in their surname list, notice I added the "De which is correct this family start in France ( the first record I found was a Ralph De Chesney b. 1044 married in 1063 to a Maud De Waterville relocated to England. First child born was a William in 1070 Ivest Hoathley, Sussex, England now a strange thing he listed his name as De Cheney yet his daughter b. 1088 is called Adelaide De Chesney. A writing error or a possible name change. any how she marries a Osbert De Condet. Now I came across the Chesney name way down in the 1800's but as a middle name which was normal to carry a family name that way. A Barbara Chesney Norton b. 1822 married a William Pierce Thorn Jr. their fourth child was called Townsend Chesney Thorn. Now onto Elmer Tuthill. Here's a 1880 Census Mattituck Suffolk NY // Benjamin Gilson Tuthill 50 his spouse Hannah Elizabeth Dayton 41 ( 4 children and a mother-in-law ) as folows: Willis A. 20 , Percy G. 11, ELMER Dayton 7, Florence 5 and Elizabeth Dayton mother-in-law 86. Now unto Land owning, No Tuthill's in Center Moriches or Manorville. They had land in East Moriches and Eastport My Father came from Eastport and my Mother A Lane came from Manorville where I was born in 1929. The Lanes and Raynor's were the large land owners in Manorville. here's a tip on the Tuttle's and Tuthill's on Long Island The Tuthill's on the North Shore and the Tuttles on the South Shore in the early 1800's some began to drift from North to South my family was one of those thus the spelling change in my family ( they wanted to blend in) One more note I have in my family the "Jayne " decendents when I traced back they became the "De Jayne " family thus I'm sure your girl friend is a De Chesney I think the Hawkins family is your best bet to search on and perhaps the Norton's
