About John Hutchins of Haverhill and Newbury

emigrated to USA aboard the ship 'Friendship' in 1636

John Hutchins was born in 1604/1608 in Hampshire, England. There are at least three theories as to how he arrived from England: 1) On the “Friendship” as carpenter’s mate in 1636; 2) On the “Mary and John“, date unclear; and the most likely 3) On the “Bevis” which sailed in May, 1638.

The Passenger List of the “Bevis” 1638 includes John Hutchins(on) and Frances Alcock as servants to the Dummer family.

John first settled in Newbury and later moved to Haverhill. His principle occupation was as a carpenter, although there are records that he also fished the Merrimack River, had a partnership in a sawmill, and did some farming. John may have been the first one in Haverhill to have servants; they included Elizabeth Shaw and an Indian named Hopewell. So this was a respectable family of some means.

To America on ship, Bevis, from Southampton, England. 1638. Bevis manifest - John Hutchinson - carpenter, servant, age 30.
