About John Hutchinson

John, apparently the youngest of the four Hutchinson brothers, was born ca 1515 and buried at Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England on May 24, 1565. From the Corporation Records of London it appears that he was apprenticed on September 23, 1529 to Edward Atkinson, of the city of London, glover, for seven years, which establishes his birth in about the year 1515.

After his apprenticeship had expired, and like his brother William, he pursued a course to secure the confidence of his fellow citizens, and is frequently mentioned as holding minor offices of trust in connection with the business of the Corporation, and rising to the dignity of Sheriff of the city, in September 1547. On April 11, 1556, John was elected an Alderman and, in the following September, elevated to a Justice of the Peace for an unexpired term, and on October 2, 1561, that honor was again conferred upon him.

In September 1564, he was a elected Mayor of Lincoln for a second time, which office he held at the time of his death, May 24, 1565. He was buried in the church of St. Mary le Wigford, in the city of Lincoln, on the same day, and, as an illustration of the rapidity with which business was sometimes done in those times, the Corporation Records reveal the singular facts that he died at four o'clock in the morning, and that his colleagues in office, having attended his funeral, elected his successor within sixteen hours after his decease. His will was made on the previous April 21 and its bequests indicate that he had acquired considerable property. He left lands and houses to each of his sons, all of whom he particularly mentions. To his eldest son William he bequeathed the estate at Whisby, formerly left to him by his own brother William, and also the Rectory and Parsonage of Cherry Willingham (near Lincoln), which he had doubtless acquired by purchase. His son Edward and daughter Mary, he particularly commended to the kindness of his wife, who was probably their own mother. John Hutchinson had two wives. The name of the first was Margaret and by her he appears to have had four children. It is possible that she may have been the mother of his other two children, but the probabilities are otherwise. The name of his second wife was Anne.

Anne had evidently been married once, if not twice before. In her will dated March 25 and proved September 18, 1586, she leaves a considerably legacy to her "son William Clinte," to increase a certain sum left him by his father's will, which amount is to remain in the hands of her "son Edwad Kirkebie," until the day of said William's marriage. She also mentions her "son Thomas Pinder." The two latter, it may be presumed, were her sons-in-law, and all the evidences to be gleaned from her will tend to show that her former husband's name was Clinte. There is nothing, however, in it to indicate her own family surname. The reasons for presuming that John Hutchinson's two youngest children were by this second wife are, first, because he especially entrusts them to her custody, while he commits the guardianship of the elder children, proved to be by his first wife, to others; and secondly, because in her will, except leaving a very trifling legacy to Alice Dynison, she mentions none of the other children of John Hutchinson, but makes her "son Edward Hutchinson" residuary legatee, and appoints him and her "son-in-law George Frieston" (who had married Mary Hutchinson) her Executors.

   ARMS: In 1634 during the Visitation of Lincolnshire, Thoma s Hutchinson, of Thedlethorpe, Lincolnshire, [descendant o f the Lord Mayor John's brother, William] presented his ped igree to the heralds and claimed the arms of the Hutchinson s of Yorkshire, but failed to establish his right to thei r use. The pedigree he presented is in the files but marke d "Respited for Proof." The requested proof was never furni shed nor have the arms ever been granted or confirmed to an y member of the family in this line. As this Thomas Hutchin son was born before the death of Edward Hutchinson of Wykeh am Abbey, to whom the arms had been of right confirmed in 1 581, there could have been no difficulty in establishin g a connection, if any had existed.
