Educated at the University College London School and the College de Vitry-le-Francois in France. Nutt then spent three years serving a business apprenticeship in Leipzig, Berlin, and Paris before taking over his late father's publishing business in 1878. He founded the Folk-Lore Journal. In 1897, he was elected president of the Folklore Society. Nutt's work was primarily in the area of folklore, Celtic studies and publishing. His Studies on the Legend of the Holy Grail (1902) is probably his best-known work. He drowned in the Seine while trying to save his invalid 17 year-old son, who had been dragged into the river when his horse bolted. His other works include Celtic and Mediaeval Romances (1899), Ossian and the Ossianic Literature (1899), Cuchulainn, the Irish Achilles (1900), The Fairy Mythology of Shakespeare (1900) and The Critical Study of Gaelic Literature (1904).
