Hutchinson Genealogy
Contributed Jun 2008 by Donna Cofell of Blenheim, Ontario

I have searched for a very long time to find out what happened to Alexander Hutchison's parents, who are my great great great grandparents through their daughter Jane. 
Here is some of what I have found:

Summary: John Hutchinson and his wife Mary Ann Jamieson were one of many couples who passed through Norfolk County on their way to somewhere else. They sailed from Belfast, Ireland aboard to Sarah Sheafe 20 Jun 1840 to New York,* and came to Canada a few years later. After living two decades in Norfolk County, they moved west, living in Kent County, Ontario, before settling in Kent County, Michigan, where they are buried. Some of their children remained in Norfolk.

John Hutchinson (born 1 Jan 1806, died 24 Jan 1886) and his wife Mary Ann Jamieson (born 11 Nov 1811, died 18 May 1884) lived in Walsingham Township, Norfolk County between 1850-1870, where Land Records show they owned Lot 18, Concession 7 in 1870, and Lot 18, Concession 8, 1860-1870. Mary Ann died in Tillsonburg, Ontario [Death Registration 1884-013273]. They are buried in Dutton Cemetery, Gaines Township, Kent County, Michigan.

Their children:

John Hutchinson, born about 1835, according to Sarah Sheafe passenger records.
