Appendix C
The Hutchinson Connection

Both Micaiah Perry I and his partner Thomas Lane were related to the Hutchinson family, noteworthy in the history of England, Ireland and Massachusetts. Students of American history are familiar with William Hutchinson, one of the founders and earliest settlers of Massachusetts, and his wife, Anne Hutchinson, the noted antinomian preacher. They were founders of a prominent colonial family which was to include Thomas Hutchinson, governor of Massachusetts on the eve of the Revolution. William Hutchinson had a brother, Richard, who remained in England and prospered as a merchant of London and as Treasurer of the Navy under Cromwell. Richard invested a good part of his growing fortune in lands in county Tipperary, Ireland, which he left to his son Edward.

Richard Hutchinson of London also had a daughter Mary, who in 1652 married William Puckle (uncle of James Puckle, the London notary and man of letters). Their daughter, Mary Puckle ( 1661- 1727), became the wife of Thomas Lane. Among the Donoughmore papers in the library of Trinity College, Dublin, are a few letters between Mary (Puckle) Lane and her Irish Hutchinson kin, suggesting that a meaningful connection between the families survived into the early decades of the eighteenth century. 2

In his will of 1699, Edward Hutchinson left bequests to his "kinsman" John Perry of Newcastle, county Tipperary (the brother of Micaiah Perry), and to his "kinswoman" Elizabeth (Riall), wife of said John. He also directed his executors to continue John Perry's employment as manager of his Tipperary estates. There also survive among the Donoughmore
