Your Affectionate Nephew, Henry Haly Hutton, May 1886, Clifton, England





Mr. Henry Haly Hutton has thoughtfully signed and dated this cabinet card, giving us the opportunity to learn more about him.  The photograph was taken at the James Fisher studio at 59, White Ladies Road, Clifton [Bristol], England.  Surprisingly, I had relatively few hits with his name on Ancestry or Familysearch.  I was able to find the Probate entry for a Henry O'Grady Haly Hutton of Haywards Heath, Sussex, who died on the 3rd of June 19111.

I moved onto a Google search and thanks to Newfoundland's Grand Banks Genealogy Site was able to find a transcription of the will of the above Henry O'Grady Haly Hutton. It would appear Mr. Haly Hutton had property in St. John's, Newfoundland.  He probably obtained that property through his inheritance from his aunt, Jane Lucy Haly, who was born in Newfoundland in 18112 and died on the 20th March 1895 in Brighton, Sussex, England3Her will, also on the Grand Banks site, shows a few of her family relationships, including the fact that she left Henry the St. John's property and six hundred pounds.

If this is the correct Henry Haly Hutton, then there is a wealth of information to be found on his siblings and his ancestors.
