HUTCHINSON, HUTCHINSON, PILKINGTON - I am looking for my wife's ancestors - the Hutchinson family, (or Hutcherson, as given on many documents). My wife's family moved to Marion District, South Carolina around 1789. Arthur Hutcherson was my wife's GGGGgrandfather, and he was listed on the 1790 Census in Marion District with Aaron Hutcheson, whom I believe may have been Arthur's brother. I belive Arthur was born circa 1770, and according to the family bible he died in 1835. Arthur Hutcherson married to Huldah Pilkington, who was the daughter of Drura Pilkington. Drura Pilkington was born on April 3, 1762 in Amelia Co., Virginia, and left Amelia County in 1789 to go to Marion District, SC. I also found a record for a Drura Hutcherson who was born on January 1, 1745 in Amelia Co., VA, who moved in 1788 to Spartansburg District, SC in 1788. Was Drura Hutcherson related to Arthur and Aaron Hutcherson? Does anyone have a listing for an Arthur Hutcherson/Hutchinson? The family spelled the surname Hutcherson in the old family bible, but has since spelled the name Hutchinson. The Hutchinsons have always been tobacco farmers (large plantation owners) in South Carolina, so I assume they were also tobacco farmers in Amelia Co. This family married into the Pilkington family, the Hatchell family, the Hewitt family, the Bethea family, and the Thompson family in South Carolina, and I believe that these may have been other Amelia County families that migrated to South Carolina with them. I appreciate anyone's help, as I am new to Amelia Co. genealogy . Zane D. Perry Dec 16, 1998 - 16:22 - From: - Zane D. Perry
