[Hutton family miscellany]

Title:
[Hutton family miscellany]
Abstract:
A miscellany possibly held by generations of the Hutton family in Yorkshire. The older (18th-century) entries begin at one end of the volume, with contemporary foliation, and include a mostly blank scheme for an alphabetical index by first letter and first vowel (f. i recto-ii verso); notes on French language and grammar (f. 1r-7v); excerpts from the writings of Cardinal Jacques Davy Du Perron in French (f. 12-r-13r), and translations in English of Cicero (Tully's Offices, f. 40r) and Julius Caesar (De bello gallico, f. 50r-50v); inscriptions and epitaphs (f. 16r, 30r); a poem titled Corydon and Meliboeus, a pastorall upon Mr. G-p-p leaving school by himself, dated 1723 (f. 17r-19r), and another untitled poem (f. 43r); a small collection of recipes and cures for ailments such as the bite of a mad dog, worms, madness, rheumatism, and treatments for horses (f. 24v-27r). A few of the foliated leaves have been torn or cut out, including ones noted in the alphabetical index. Starting from the other end of the volume, upside down, a collection of 19th-century genealogical notes trace the descent of the Hutton family beginning in the late 16th century. Sources noted include monumental inscriptions in the parish church at Richmond in York, other epitaphs, a will at Marske Hall, other papers at Marske Hall, and a leaf in a Bible at Thornton Hall (noted copied in 1821, f. 165v). Related families traced include the D'Arcy and Dyke families. The most recent genealogical notes trace descendants up to 1822. A small clipping about a visit by a member of the Hutton family to Archbishop Hutton's School is dated 1853 (f. 180r). The notes laid in the volume include three couplets from Dryden addressed on the verso to the Honorable Mrs. Anne D'arcy at Sedbury near Richmond, Yorkshire; excerpts on hope and repentance from a catechism; and additional genealogical information.
