Biographical Note

BA New College, Oxford 1650, fellow the same year; he was listed for expulsion for refusing to submit to the parliamentary visitation of 1648, but this seems not to have been enforced.


Hutton's probate inventory lists ca.150 books valued at £2 18s 7d, edited as PLRE 165. The books include a typical wide range of texts, including much theology, grammar and philosophy, but also literary texts, and books on history and current affairs, alchemy, science and classics. A little over a quarter of his books are noted as being English imprints.
