Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mrs. Lucy Hutchinson (1620-1681) was an English biographer as well as the first translator into English of the complete text of Lucretius's De Rerum Natura during the years of the interregnum.The daughter of Sir Allen Apsley, Lieutenant of the Tower of London, and Lady Lucy St. John, she married on 3 July 1638 in St. Andrew Holborn, London England to Colonel John Hutchinson, one of those who signed the death-warrant of King Charles I of England, but who afterwards protested against the assumption of supreme power by Oliver Cromwell. She has a place in literature for her biography of her husband Memoirs Of The Life Of Colonel Hutchinson. In the book she records that he had many notable victories in that conflict, including his victory at Shelford Manor on 27 October 1645. In this battle he defeated his kin Colonel Philip Stanhope. Stanhope the fifth son of the Earl of Chesterfield, was killed during the engagement. Lucy writes of this in the book, she may have even seen the battle as Owthorpe was only a few miles away from the battle site. After the English Civil War John Hutchinson retired to his estate of Owthorpe.
