Colonell John Hutchinson

Or traditionally supposed to be. A portrait painter by Chester artist John Souch around about 1643. The Colonell wears a tall hat with possibly a silk band, a bright (very bright for 1643) red doublet, or possibly coat over a buff coloured doublet. A fine laced falling band and cuffs and more lace escaping from his coat lower down. Notice the buttons on his coat and doublet are on the edge of the material.

  1. Did you know that Major General Thomas Harrison, who lived fairly close by in Newcastle, Stoke-on-Trent, was always reputed to wear red and gold?

  2. Could the pic be of General Harrison maybe? It’s not 100% attributed to Hutchinson. More research needed methinks. Thanks Mary.

  3. I like the fact that, for all his finery, this gentleman is happy with a smart looking basket hilted sword, rather than a fine rapier hilt
