Col. John Hutchinson (1615-64) succeeded his father in 1646 as M.P. for Nottinghamshire, and like him took the parliamentary side in the Civil War. He signed the king’s death warrant but was saved from expected reprisals at the Restoration by his early demonstration of contrition, and the influence of his kinsmen, Lord Byron and Sir Allen Apsley. “His fame rests on his wife’s commemoration of his character, not on his own achievements”. - Prof. C.H.Firth in D.N.B.
