A local antiquary: Reminiscences of the late Peter Orlando Hutchinson, Esq. of Sidmouth

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 35 (1903) pp. 146-155.



Prepared by Michael Steer

The author provides a whimsical and entertaining eulogy on his eccentric friend Peter Orlando Hutchinson (1810-1897), a Victorian artist, based in Sidmouth. Hutchinson was born in Winchester but spent all his adult life in Sidmouth. His diaries are notable for their scientific content. His geological and archaeological observations are of immense value, but above all it is as an artist and ceaseless and devoted recorder of everything he heard and saw that he will be remembered, making his diaries a valuable source for Devon landscape studies.
