    Name Meaning

    English (northern): patronymic from the Old French personal name Hucheon (see Houchin ) + -son.Irish: in Ireland and Scotland, adopted for Mac Uisdein and Mac Uistin; see McCutcheon .History: Anne Marbury Hutchinson (1591–1643) and her husband William came from Lincolnshire, England, to MA in 1634. A religious dissident, she led the first attack on the Puritans and was banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. She moved to RI in 1638, and, after her husband's death in 1642, settled in NY, where the Hutchinson River was named in her honor. Ironically, the Hutchinson name stayed on in MA and one of her descendants, Thomas Hutchinson (1711–80), was royal governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony.
