The English and Scottish surname Hutchinson is of patronymic origin being derived from the Norman French personal name Hugh. The first written reference to the name Hutchinson in Scotland is James Huchonsone, who held lands in Glasgow in 1454. Other recordings taken from surviving church registers of the 16th century include those of Agnes Hutchinson who married Thomas Cordell, at St. Botolphs church, Bishopsgate, in the city of London, on November 10th 1570, and Hanna, the daughter of John Hutchinson, who was christened on November 8th 1573 at St. Vedast church, Foster Lane, also in the city of London. One of the earliest settlers in the New World was John Hutchinson, who departed from the port of London, aboard the ship "Bonaventure", bound for the original colony of Virginia, New England, in January 1634.
