EDWARD HOWARD HUTCHINSON, real estate man and capitalist, occupies a prominent place among Buffalo's business men.
Mr. Hutchinson comes of the New England family of that name whose descent is derived from Bernard Hutchinson of Cowland, Yorkshire, England, a knight in the time of King Edward I., later representatives of the family being Col. John Hutchinson, the Lieutenant of Oliver Cromwell, and Lord Hutchinson, who in 1801 defeated the French army in Egypt. William Hutchinson, who came to Massachusetts in 1634, was one of the founders of Portsmouth and Newport. The Buffalo branch of the family traces its descent from Daniel, son of Elisha and Eunice Hutchinson, who was born in Lebanon, Conn., November 22, 1767, and who married Susannah Treep. John Hutchinson, son of Daniel, was born October 28, 1792, came in 1815 to Williamsville, Erie County, where he engaged in the tannery business, and died August 28, 1865. In 1818 he married Harriett Martin, their children being John M. and Helen.
