This parkway is named for Anne Hutchinson (1591-1643), a woman whose intelligence and conviction made her an exile in life but a model of perseverance for generations after her death. Although the exact date of her birth cannot be precisely determined, church records indicate that she was baptized Anne Marbury on July 20, 1591, in Alford, Lincolnshire, England. Anne’s father, a taciturn clergyman, encouraged her education and she read exhaustively from an early age. In 1612, she married a merchant named William Hutchinson and they immigrated to the Massachusetts Bay Colony (modern-day Greater Boston) in 1634.
