Bird 116 · Spinning Jenny

1810 Filey · Baptism  Rachel was born in Gristhorpe, the only child of farmer John HUTCHINSON and Ann BRUMPTON. Her mother died in August 1811 at the age of 29 and it doesn’t appear that her father remarried. Rachel had six children with William CLARKSON. Widowed in 1857, she returned to her father’s house and was enumerated at 7 West Street, Muston in 1861 with four children  – Annie Jane, John, Mary Ann and Rachael Susannah. Rachel’s father died in 1867 and on census night 1871 she was enumerated at the Cross Keys in Muston with her granddaughter Rachel Ann, 7, the firstborn of eldest son John and Isabella CARR. Rachel died the following winter and is buried in Hunmanby, presumably with her husband William.
