  • Notes 
    • He came to New England in 1633, a year before his parents, along with the Rev. John Cotton and his uncle Edward Hutchinson. Shortly thereafter he returned to England, where he married Katherine Hamby. Upon returning to New England he supported his mother in the Antinomian controversy, for which he was disarmed; he then followed his family to Rhode Island, where he was one of the signers of the Portsmouth Compact, 7 Mar 1638. In 1642 he and John Leverett were sent on an embassy to the Narraganset.

      "His name appears in the roll of freemen at Newport in 1641, but he seems to have retained his connection with Boston, for all his children were baptized there from 1637 to 1658. He probably returned there after his father's death. […] Edward Hutchinson became a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company in 1638, was Lieutenant in 1654, and Captain in 1657. He served in King Philip's War with the Massachusetts forces as chief officer of cavalry, [and] was mortally wounded in an Indian ambuscade near Wickabaug Pond, West Brookfield, Mass." [John Denison Champlin, citation details below]

      "To his honor, he entered into the dissent against the sanguinary law of 1658, for punishing the Quakers with death on their return to the colony after banishment." [History of the Military Company of the Massachusetts, Now Called the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, citation details below]
