To be completed.
Parents and family
Michael's family are unknown at present and
there appears to be conflicting circumstantial evidence. There were two
groups of HUTTONs with connections to the area, but operating on
opposite sides of the Pennines. Perhaps the stronger of the two were
the Lancashire HUTTONS.
The Yorkshire HUTTONs?
Mill appears to be the one associated with the Duchy Manor, at that
time owned by the CARTWRIGHT family of Aynhoe Park, Aynho, Northants.
In the 1670s the CARTWRIGHT family had married into a HUTTON family
Archbishop Matthew HUTTON of York, members of which were at both Aynho
and nearby Fritwell, Oxon, site of the Papermill's rag house. These
HUTTONs were friendly with the LORD family of Cottisford. However, none
of these HUTTONs appear to have been Quakers.
The Lancashire HUTTONs?
In the early 1700s a Rev William HUTTON (later LONG) of Maids
mentioned an estate in Clifton, Deddington, Oxon. Maids Moreton is only
a few miles further east of Deddington than Fritwell and
The Rev. William's son James Hutton LONG appears to have inherited
Thorphinsty Hall, Cartmel
(then Lancs). Thorphinsty was the seat of HUTTON of Thorphinsty. This
group who appear to have been married into the prominant Quaker family
RAWLINSON. They also appear to have had connections with the SANDYS
family of the Furness area, who had a branch at Carswell near Witney,
Oxon. They were connected by marriage to the KEMPSTER
family of Upton,
Childhood and education
In 1684 one Michael HUTTON of Hampton
made a request to DOYLEY to convert 'Deddington Mill' to paper
At some point before 22 Jul 1688 Michael married Jaell. I have yet to
locate details of their marriage.
22 Jul 1688 their daughter Jane was born. The birth was Registered at
the Friend's Monthly meeting at Banbury as follows 'Registered Banbury,
Oxford, England. Jane the daughter of Michael Hutton and Jaell born 22
5mo 1688 [Julian date]'
On 7 Oct 1692 the Friends records show
'Michaell the son of Michael Hutton & Jaell his wife of the
papermill was born. 7d 8mo [i.e. 7th October] Registered in Banbury.'
10 May 1700 the Friends records show 'Mary ye daughter of Michael
Hutton & Jael his wife was borne 10d 3mo 1700 [Julian date].
Registered at Banbury.'
On 23 March 1700/1 Michael buried his wife Jaell. The records of the
(Quakers) Monthly Meeting in Banbury records him as 'Michaell Hutton
att the paper mill in ye pish of Dedington' on the burial record of his
wife, dated 23 1 1701 (Julian), the page is headed 1700 but a
marginal note on this entry says 1701.
Aug 1703 the Friends records show 'Mary the daughter of
Hutton buried at Aderbury 13d 6m 1703 [Julian date].' Registered at
have been unable to find birth or christening records for three
further children, Thomas, John and Anne, all mentioned in his will and
some possibly mentioned amongst the witnesses at their sibling's Quaker
Last Will and Testament
Wakeman mentions that in his Will he 'mentions his five children,
Michael, John, Thomas, Jane and Anne' (Wakeman, 1999, 4).
In 1715 to judge from his burial. According to Wakeman 'an inventory of
his goods and chattels was made by his executors. The total of his
goods came to £103. 5s, 3d. of which £29. 2s. 4d. was the value of
paper, rags and other materials' [Wakeman, 1999, 4]
The records of the Friends Monthly Meeting at Banbury, Oxon, record the
burial on 11d 6m 1715 (i.e. 11 Aug 1715) of 'Michael Hutton
of Dedington papermill' and that he was buried at Adderbury,
, where the Friends had both a chapel and a burial
In 1716 'an inventory of his goods and chattels was made by his
executors. The total of his goods came to £103. 5s, 3d. of which £29.
2s. 4d. was the value of paper, rags and other materials' (Wakeman,
