As part of the work on our Hutchings family tree, we have started to research all occurrences of the Hutchings surname (and variant spellings) in and around Sturminster Newton
For a person to be listed either:
1) Their surname at birth was Hutchings (or one of the variant spellings) and they were born/christened/married/died in or around Sturminster Newton. Only one event need have been in the area.
2) They were the spouse of a person in category 1).
Once a person is listed, all of their birth/christening/marriage*/death details are given where known, regardless of whether the event took place in the area or elsewhere.
* The only exception to this rule is applied to people in category 2), who do not have marriages listed if they do not involve a Hutchings. For example. Martha Knott is listed because she married Nathaniel Hutchings. However, her previous marriage to Robert Lambert (see the Hutchings family tree) is not listed.
