A statue of Hutchinson stands in front of the State House in Boston, Massachusetts. The inscription on the statue reads: Anne Marbury Hutchinson was killed by Indians at Pelham Bay, Long Island Sound, in what is now the Bronx.
As a child, walking through the Boston Gardens, my father used to show me the statue and tell me that she was an ancestor in the Hutchinson family. Then again, I was also told that my great grandfather, or perhaps great, great grandfather (Hutchinson) jumped ship and swam to the Maine shoreline. I would only have to go back perhaps 4 generations from my grandfather, George W. Hutchinson (1868-1900) to find Anne Hutchinson. History could surprise me if I am able to trace back far enough!
In 1987, Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis pardoned Anne Hutchinson, in order to revoke the order of banishment by Governor Endicott, 350 years earlier.
