Edward Buck Hutt (1812 – 8 March 1850) 

Edward was the son of Edward and Jemima Hutt and brother of Samuel.   He was born in Slaughterhouse Lane (now Corn Exchange St.) on December 20th or 21st and baptised at The church of Mary the Less on January 17th.  His father was a bookbinder and Edward Jnr became  a compositor at the Pitt Press.
He married Susanna Smith at St Andrews Church on 11th June 1838.

Edward and Susanna had at least three children: Harriett Lucy (1841-1927), George Edward (1844-1925) and Frederick Charles (1847-1909).  The family lived at Hills Road (1842) and later at Elm Street (1845).  He died in March 1850 when he was living in St Botolph’s Lane.  In 1850 he would normally have been buried in Mill Road Cemetery but St Botolph’s must have had a few spaces left.

Edward’s parents are buried in the parish area of Mary the Less but we have not found a monument.

Susan Hutt (née Smith) (8 March 1815 – 14 March 1896)

Susan was born Susanna Smith in Linton. She was baptised on 14th May 1815, and was the daughter of Thomas and Susannah Smith.  She was widowed aged 35 years old.

After the death of Edward she became a ‘college servant’ living firstly at Park Street (1851), and later at 40 Jesus Lane (1871 onwards).  By 1881 she was a Lodging House Keeper at Jesus Lane. She died aged 81 years old.
