Classic women's stories: a little brown notebook
Lucy Hutchinson was born in the Tower of London, the ucy eldest daughter of the Lieutenant of the Tower. In 1638 she married John Hutchinson, a Parliamentarian who became the Governor of Nottingham Castle. He played a prominent role in the civil war, acting as one of Charles I's judges and signing his death sentence. After the Restoration, John Hutchinson was held prisoner, first in the tower of London and then in Sandringham Castle. Lucy Hutchinson interceded on her husband's behalf during his imprisonment and, after his death in 1664, she wrote her Memoirs of the Life of Colonel Hutchinson. Although a prejudiced and partial account of her husband's enemies, the description of puritan family life and the account of the Civil War in Nottinghamshire that it provides, make it one of the most important seventeenth-century memoirs. Best known as her husband's biographer, Lucy Hutchinson also translated six books of Lucretius' De rerum natura, and wrote several religious treatise.
