"XI. Joseph Hutchinson, only surviving son of Richard Hutchinson by his first wife Alice Bosworth. He was born in England, probably in North Muskham in the county of Nottingham, in the year 1633, according to his deposition taken in court, June, 1660, aged 27, and he emigrated with his father to New England. He settled upon a portion of his father's estate, which was conveyed to him by deed of gift during his father's lifetime, viz., March 16, 1666. It appears that he had also a grant of land from the town of Salem. He gave to his son Joseph, on the 1st of July, 1703, 51 acres of upland on the west side of Ipswich river, near Cromwell's meadow; and on the 3rd of May, 1694, he gave his son John 50 acres of land. In 1673, he was one of the Committee for building a parsonage at Danvers, and he gave the land whereon the building was erected. He was one of the signers of a petition, offered to the General Court on the 20th of February, 1689, to the effect that Salem might become a town by itself, for at that time it was merely 'Salem Village'.

He had two wives; the name of the first has not been preserved, but by her he had five children, the first four of whom were all baptized together on the 26th of March, 1666, viz.: 1. Abigail, baptized at 1st Church Sept 26, 1666. Died young. 2. Bethiah, baptized at 1st Church Sept, 26, 1666. Died 1690. 3. Joseph (of whom hereafter) 4.

Benjamin became the adopted son of Nathaniel Ingersoll, Esq., of Danvers.

Joseph married, secondly, Lydia, widow of Mr. Joseph Small, 28 February, 1678. Her maiden name was Buxton, and she was admitted into the 1st Church at Danvers, April 27, 1690. By her he had six children, viz.: 6. Abigail, born January 14, 1679. 7. Richard, born May 10, 1681. He lived in Danvers till 1738, when he removed with his family to Maine, where a large number of his descendants are still living. In 1720, he sold his estate to James Buxton. He married Rachel Bunce, February 16, 1714. 8. Samuel, born October 9, 1682. He died single. 9. Ambrose, born June 4, 1684. He was married to Ruth, daughter of Joseph and Lydia Leach.
