This branch of the family descends from George Hutchison (Hutchinson), (21/ 8/1801 - 17/ 6/1861), who changed the spelling by inserting the "N"  -  no one knows why. He was the third child of George Hutchison (17/ 7/1765 - 11/10/1844) who married Christian Keith. This Braemar George was succeeded by Thomas who married the lady you saw in bed in 1958. Tom died in 1924, so I was never aware of him; but he was a great friend and financial supporter of my father, when he first bought shares in the Barclay, Ross & Hutchison business. He was not, though, the oldest son and heir; who had moved to London, as a servant of Queen Victoria.
 It seems odd to me that this line is the senior in the family as we recognise it, yet neither Eileen nor I have done anything much to follow the line through three generations who lived in London.  I rather think that there should be several families of Hutchinsons there, who ought to be interested in their history, but we've never met any.

TMH to GH. November 04.

  Roman Catholic until her marriage (family knowledge).
At Inverey until her marriage, then at Castletown of Braemar. By 1871 at Woodside Cottage where she died. In the 1871 valuation roll, she is proprietor (ie leaseholder) of (this) house and garden on Mar estate.

Died 23 (gravestone or 24 (BDM) September 1882 0f apoplexy. Cert. by James Noble MD, informant: James Hutchinson, son.

Hutchinson, George.

Born in Peterhead on 21 August 1801. Baptised in Parish of Cruden, date not given but presumably when parents moved there c1804. (census, OPR)

At some stage, left Cruden and came to Braemar. Miller at Castletown of Braemar, certainly from 1834 (OPR). Miller in 1841 census. Miller and grain dealer in 1851 census. In 1855/6 valuation roll, he is tenant of house, lands and meal mill of Kindrochit. In 1861 census, general dealer; meal miller on death certificate; flesher in executry; miller on gravestone. Miller and butcher in wife's death certificate.

In 1846 he brought a lawsuit against his brother James Hutchison. Shortly before the death of their father in Cruden, several of his family had met together and made a division of their father's means. James was entrusted with George's share and wrote to tell him so. James claimed that this letter said that the share was 2, George that it was 10 and that the bank had accepted the letter as credit for 10 towards a debt he had incurred. However, the sheriff found that part of the "two" in the letter had been erased to make it read "ten" and James was ordered to pay only 2. (Peterhead Sheriff Court SC.4/22/10, 14 April 1847, Hutchison v Hutchison) [An examination of the letter which was produced as evidence suggests that the sheriff was correct. Two letters from George are also productions in the case.]

Household in 1851 census included a visitor: Thomas Pearce junior, 28, annuitant, born in London. In 1861, two lodgers.

Died of 17 June 1861 of pulmonary apoplexy (gravestone, BDM). Cert. by James Cannon MD, informant of death: George Hutchinson, son. Value of his personal estate was 140: 17: 10, which consisted of cash 1: 10: 6, household furniture and effects, cattle, crop etc 60: 11: 5; debts due to him 77: 11: 11 calculated down  to 38: 15: 11; value of houses etc at Castletown of Braemar, payable to the deceased by Farquharson of Invercauld 40.
