Summary

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?

The 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 descended from 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 Moreton, Bucks, mentioned an estate in Clifton, Deddington, Oxon. Maids Moreton is only a few miles further east of Deddington than Fritwell and Aynhoe. The Rev. William's son James Hutton LONG appears to have inherited Thorphinsty Hall, Cartmel Fell, Cumbria (then Lancs). Thorphinsty was the seat of HUTTON of Thorphinsty. This group who appear to have been married into the prominant Quaker family of 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, Oxfordshire.

Birth

Unknown.

Childhood and education

Unknown.

Employment

In 1684 one Michael HUTTON of Hampton Gay, Oxon, made a request to DOYLEY to convert 'Deddington Mill' to paper production (Wakeman, 1999, 4). 

Marriage

At some point before 22 Jul 1688 Michael married Jaell. I have yet to locate details of their marriage.

On 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.'

On 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 Friends (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.

On 18 Aug 1703 the Friends records show 'Mary the daughter of Michael Hutton buried at Aderbury 13d 6m 1703 [Julian date].' Registered at Banbury.

I 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 marriages.

Last Will and Testament

Wakeman mentions that in his Will he 'mentions his five children, Michael, John, Thomas, Jane and Anne' (Wakeman, 1999, 4).

Death

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]

Burial

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, Oxon, where the Friends had both a chapel and a burial ground.

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, 1999, 4).
