Biography

Richard Hutchinson, son of Thomas Hutchinson, was born 1602-03. In 1660 he deposed that his age was fifty-eight. He married at Cotgrave, county Nottingham, England, December 7, 1627, Alice Bosworth, probably daughter of Joseph Bosworth, of Southell, otherwise known as the cathedral church of Nottinghamshire. He was the immigrant ancestor and came to America in 1634 with his wife Alice and four children, and settled in Salem, Massachusetts. He had a grant of land from the town of Salem in 1636 and the next year a grant of twenty acres more, "provided he will set up a plough". It is said that at that time there were but thirty-seven ploughs in the entire colony. In 1654 he had another parcel of land granted him and in 1660 still another. This land was situated in the vicinity of Hathorne's Hill, Beaver Dam brook, now called Beaver brook, which runs through Middleton into the Ipswich river. He and his wife were members of the Salem church as early as 1636. He bought a farm of one hundred and fifty acres at Salem Village (Danvers) of Elias Stillman in 1748, and that was his homestead afterwards. He served on a committee of the town to survey Jeffrey's creek (now Manchester) and Mackerel cove. He married (second), in October, 1668, Sarah Standish, widow of James Standish, of whose estate Hutchinson was appointed administrator April 1, 1679. His will was dated January 19, 1679, and proved September 26, 1683. His widow married (third) Thomas Roots, of Manchester, whom she also survived. Children of first wife the first five born in England: 1 Alice baptized at North Muskham Nottinghamshire September 27 1628 died there the same year 2 Elizabeth baptized at Arnold August 30 1628 married Deacon Nathaniel Putnam of Danvers 3 Mary baptized at North Muskham December 28 1630 married Thomas Hale of Newbury Massachusetts 4 Rebecca born about 1632 married James Hadlock of Salem May 1658. 5 Joseph mentioned below 6 Abigail baptized December 25 1636 married Anthony Ashby 7 Hannah baptized at Salem April 12 1662 married Daniel Boardman 8 John born May 1643 married July 1672 Sarah Putnam.[1]

Richard Hutchinson, the fourth son and sixth child of Thomas and Alice, was born about 1602 or 1603. His baptism is not recorded the Parish Registers either at Newark or at Arnold, and probably took place elsewhere, after his parents had quitted the former place, and before they finally settled at the latter. Accident may some day reveal the exact spot, but any search for the record would be useless. He was married at Cotgrave in the county of Nottingham, on the 7th day of December, 1627, to Alice Bosworth. This name does again occur in the Cotgrave Registers, but the family of Bosworth resided at that time at Southwell, in the same county. She was probably the daughter of Mr. Joseph Bosworth, who was in some way connected with the celebrated collegiate church of Southwell, otherwise known as the Cathedral Church of Nottinghamshire. This presumption is strengthened by the fact that her first son was named Joseph, a new christian name in the Hutchinson family, and doubtless adopted in honor of her father. In about the year 1635, Richard Hutchinson, who appears to have resided at North Muskham in the county of Nottingham, emigrated to New England with his family, and settled in the town of Salem, then in the Colony and now in State of Massachusetts.

What confirms the presumption that Richard was born in 1602, and reduces it to a certainty, is his deposition, taken in court in June, 1660 on file in the County Court's office, of Salem Mass., viz.: June, 1660 -Cromwell versus Ruck- "The testimony of Richard Hutchinson, aged about fifty eagght." The earliest mention made of him is found in the Town Records of Salem, Mass., in 1636, about a year after his arrival in the Colony, when the town of Salem made him a grant of land; and in 1637, "It is ordered that Richard Hutchinson shall have twenty acres more than the grant already mentioned in the book of calculations, provided he will set up a plough;" and it is asserted that at that time there were but 37 ploughs in the entire colony. In 1654, he had another parcel of land granted him, and in 1660 still another. This land according to the deeds, was situated in the vicinity of "Hathorn's Hill," Beaver Dam brook, now called Beaver brook, which runs through Middleton into the Ipswich river.

His first wife Alice Bosworth, whom he married in England, was a member of the 1st Church of Danvers in 1636, and Richard joined in 1647, under the administration of the Rev. Francis Higginson. All of his children, seven in number, were by his first wife, four of whom were born in England. The date of Alice's death has not been ascertained. His second wife was Susannah, widow of Samuel Archer. He married her in October, 1668; she died the 26th of November, 1674. He married, thirdly, Sarah, widow of James Staudish, of whose estate Richard was appointed administrator, April 1, 1679. Richard's will was dated January 19, 1679, and proved September 26, 1682. He was consequently 80 years of age at his decease. He mentions in his will his children Joseph, Abigail, Hannah; his grandchildren Bethiah Hutchinson and Sarah Hadlock; and his sons-in-law Anthony Ashby, Daniel Boardman, Nathaniel Putnam, Thomas Hale and James Hadlock; and "lastly, I make my son Joseph Hutchinson, sole executor to this my last will and testament, enjoyning him, his heirs and assigns, to pay all my debts and legacies, and doe freely give unto him, his heirs or assigns, Peter, my servant, and all the use of my estate, both movable and imovable. This is my last will and testament made by me this 19th day of January in y year of our Lord 1679.[2]

Family

His children by his first wife Alice Bosworth born in England before his emigration were as follows:

  1. Alice, baptized at North Muskham in the county of Nottingham, on the 27th of Sept, 1628, and buried there in the same year.[4]
  2. Elizabeth, baptized at Arnold (her grandfather's residence), on the 30th of August, 1629. She was a member of the First Church in Danvers, and married Nathaniel Putnam, deacon of said church, and a man of much influence in the church and town. She died in Danvers June 24, 1688-9.[5]
  3. Mary, baptized at North Muskham, on the 28th of Dec., 1630. She was married 26th of May, 1657, to Thomas Hale of Newbury, Mass., and died October 22, 1688.[6] Conflict: Thomas Hale died October 22, 1688. Mary died December 8, 1715.[7]
  4. Rebecca, born in England about 1632. She married Mr. James Hadlock, of Salem, Mass., May, 1658.[8]
  5. Joseph, (of whom hereafter).[9]

It is uncertain whether the last two children were born and baptized at North Muskham, or at some other place where their parents may have temporarily resided previous to their emigration to New England. The Parish Registers of North Muskham, prior to the year 1700, are not in existence, and the dates already given were obtained from the Transcripts in the Bishop's Registry at York. These Transcripts are also very imperfect, and those for the years 1631 to 1635 are missing entirely. The probability is, however, that these two children were also born and baptized at North Muskham. Richard and Alice Hutchinson, after their arrival in New England, had three other children, viz.:[10]

6. Abigail, baptized 25th of December, 1636, at Salem, Mass. subsequently married Mr. Anthony Ashby, of Salem.[11]
7. Hannah, baptized at Salem, on the 20th June, 1639. She afterwards married, on the 12th of April, 1662, to Mr. Boardman, of Ipswich Mass.[12]
8. John, born May, 1643. He married, July, 1672, Sarah, daughter of John and Rebecca Putnam, by whom he had a daughter, subsequently married to Mr. Whipple. The Inventory of John's estate was taken August 2d 1676.[13]

The direct American line was continued by Joseph Hutchinson only surviving son of Richard Hutchinson.[14]
