The go-to source for this family has always been the book, "Immigration of the Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania," by Albert Cook Myers, which was originally published in 1902. This book has detailed information on THOMAS HUTTON and his family, including genealogical notes, transcribed letters, THOMAS' signature, and more.
For years now, researchers have speculated that the wife of THOMAS' father JOHN HUTTON was someone named RACHEL LADBURNER. It is unclear exactly where that information originated, and that surname has proved impossible to research.
Finally with the Lupton Parish records, and Kendal Monthly Meeting records, it is clear that the wife of JOHN HUTTON was named ELIZABETH.
According to the Kendal MM records, JOHN & ELIZABETH had a daughter named SUSANNAH HUTTON born 1st month, 29th day, 1653; a daughter named MARGARET HUTTON born 7th month, 30th day, 1655, and a son THOMAS HUTTON born 2nd month, 7th day, 1657.
THOMAS & MARGERET's births are also noted in the Lupton parish records.
Many, many thanks to record sleuths Maurice and Tony for locating and copying these, and to Bernice for so kindly sharing them with me!!
Have a great day!
