3. M Elisha HUTCHINSON was born on 16 Nov 1641. He died on 10 Dec 1717. Married 1) Hannah Hawkins 2) Elizabeth Clarke.


Ben M. Angel notes: Someone had proposed that Elisha was buried near the Boston Commons. I wasn't able to find anything corroborating this online, and none was offered in the About Me section for this profile, so I removed the information from the Burial Place entry and placed it here. Would greatly welcome a citation (record, gravestone sighting, etc.) that identifies his place of burial. [see below - July 2017]

Note: John Freake was an attorney at the Boston Courts at the time of his death. This is probably how Elizabeth met Elisha Hutchinson, who was a Clerk/Judge's Assistant at the time of John Freake's death.

It is written that John is at Granary Burial Grounds, with a description of the headstone bearing the Freake/Clarke coat of arms.

From Samuel SEWALL's diary: "Febr. 7 Madam HUTCHISON is buried; Bearer, Cooke, Sewall, Addington, Townsend; Bromfield, Belcher; came to the South burying place. Col. HUTCHISON by reason of his Sore Toe was fain to ride in the Coach."
