Father*Colonel Elisha Hutchinson2 b. 3 Apr 1641, d. 10 Dec 1717
Mother*Elizabeth Clarke2 b. c 1642, d. 3 Feb 1712/13
Birth*18 June 1678Colonel Edward Hutchinson was born on 18 June 1678 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).3,2
Marriage*10 October 1706He married Lydia Foster, daughter of John Foster and Lydia Turell, on 10 October 1706 in Boston.2,4
Biographical Info*Edward had trained to be a merchant in Boston. He served as a Selectman of the town, a Representative to the General Court, Colonel of the regiment, Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, was Treasurer of Harvard College for 30 years, and Judge of Probate for the County of Suffolk, a position he held until his death.2
(Judge) Codicil28 August 1747Judge Edward Hutchinson reviewed the codicil to the will written by the Reverend Benjamin Colman on 28 August 1747 in Boston. Reverend Colman had died the next day before he could give it, as he had planned, to one of his Executors, John Phillips Esq. of Boston, described as a worthy Deacon of the Church in Brattle Street. The codicil first confirmed his will and testament in its entirety, except for the addition written in the codicil which stated that if either his honored friend John Phillips, Esq. or his beloved nephew Benjamin Colman of Boston, merchant, were to take upon them the trust and trouble of Executor to his will with the necessary care of the education of his grandson John Dennie, that £200 out of his estate should be allowed to him for the care and his great kindness. The codicil was not witnessed.

From a letter written on 7 Sep 1747 by Benjamin's widow Mary Colman at the Judge's request, and included in the probate packet, we learned that Benjamin had completed writing his codicil in the evening, and put it in his desk drawer for the night. Mary wrote in her letter to Judge Edward Hutchinson that Benjamin had told her he was thinking possibly of adding something more, and would complete it in the morning and then deliver it to Deacon John Phillips. Her letter stated that, between the hours of three and five in the morning of the 29th August, her dear husband, Dr. Benjamin Colman, told her that if he didn't have the opportunity to finish it, she should submit it to the court and that the court would be able to tell it was written in Benjamin's own hand and signed with his signature.5
(Judge) Probate5 September 1747The estate of the Reverend Benjamin Colman was opened for probate on 5 September 1747 in Boston. His will and his codicil were both found valid by Judge Edward Hutchinson, Judge of the Probate of Wills for the Province of Massachusetts Bay.5
(Judge) Inventory18 September 1747 On 18 September 1747 the Inventory of the estate of the Reverend Benjamin Colman, completed and appraised by William Downe, Daniel Henchman and John Fayerweather and sworn to by one of the estate's Executors John Phillips Esq., was filed with Judge Edward Hutchinson in Boston. The total value of the Estate was appraised at £14,460, 7s, 10p, which in 2010 would have been equal to about £1,810,000 or approximately $2,800,000. The inventory provided an itemized list of the contents of each of the rooms, which were described, in his home on Brattle Street, the only real property he owned at his death. The large brick house was valued at £4,000 and the rooms were described as a Study, a large Front Room, a small room between the 2 front chambers, a second Front Room, a Kitchen Chamber, a north Front Chamber, a Keeping Room Chamber, a Chamber over the Study, an Upper Chamber over the Study, another Upper Chamber, and two additional upper Chambers. His cash and bonds were valued at just under £7,000, and his library of books at just under £1,000. Reverend Colman owned two slaves; his Negro man Boston was appraised at £300, and his Negro woman Violet at £220. His wearing apparel and household goods made up the remaining value.5
Death*16 March 1752He died on 16 March 1752 in Boston at age 73.3,2,4
