Notes by Mary H. Atkinson
The family name was McHutchison or McCutchison. Hugh became a baillie in Maybole in 1770 and the minutes for the council meetings are in the National Archives. Hugh�s signature first appears in the minutes in 1770 and from that time until he signs the minute of 20th May 1789 his signature is Hugh McHutchison. He uses the signature Hugh Hutcheson for the first time in the council minutes on 27th October 1789. Hugh�s signature is quite unique I don�t think there is any doubt that the signatures McHutchison and Hutcheson are by the same hand. Alexander was using Hutcheson in 1781, I have seen his signature on a bond; the spelling is Hutcheson.
Southfield is in the Parish of Mearns in Renfrewshire. Southfield no longer exists, the area became the grounds for Meanskirk Hospital: opened as a children�s tuberculosis hospital in 1930 but by 1959 designated as a general hospital.
Research note: A William Hutchison served heir general to his father, the Rev. John Hutchison, minister of Maybole on 21 Aug 1705, recorded 13 Dec 1705.
