About John Hutchins, of Newbury & Haverhill


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.

John Hutchins of Newberry, MA brought suit in Ipswitch Court in 1542, and removed to Haverhill, MA giving house and land at Newberry to wife Frances, cattle to daughter Elizabeth and son William on Nov. 23, 1654. John conveyed land to son Joseph on Apr. 29, 1661.
