I think it was in Durban, South Africa but it could have been in the UK. I will attach an excel document which I have compiled but don't know if I have the correct Mary Ann Hutchinson. (sorry can't seem to attach it so will just post it below) Hope this helps. Jenni

Hi again,


I'm afraid you've lost me with that posting.


Are you saying that Dickson (Dixon) Hutchinson b 1795 married Mary Ann Todd in 1815 when she wasn't born until 1861? It really doesn't matter, because their daughter Mary Ann Hutchinson (b 1829) married XXXXX XXXXX and never left England. Mary Ann Todd was born in 1797.


Dixon Hutchinson and Mary Ann Todd did have a son John Fenwick Hutchinson (1822-1900) who married Jane Dorothy Wilkinson in 1844 in Sunderland. Their daughter Mary Ann was born in 1845. Here is the information you would need to order the birth record from the British GRO at


Name: HUTCHINSON, Mary Ann

Registration district: Sunderland

County: Durham

Year of registration: 1845

Quarter of registration: Oct-Nov-Dec

Mother's maiden name: Not available before 1911 Q3

Volume no: 24

Page no: 311


The family emigrated to Durban, SA in 1860. He was a joiner like his father and pursued that occupation in South Aftica.


There are no South African birth records online. South Africa makes very little available to anyone. Have you obtained their marriage license from the court house in Durban? Sometimes they will list the names of the parents' of bride and bridegroom.
