Memorable Manitobans: George Hutton (1861-?)

Florist.

Born at Aberdeenshire, Scotland on 18 October 1861, son of George and Margaret Hutton, he was educated at the public schools of Farnell, quitting at the age of 13 to work as a farm hand and railwayman. He emigrated to the United States, going to Lyons, Nebraska where he worked in the florist business for eight years. He then raised cotton in Mississippi for three and a half years before moving to Leeds, South Dakota where, for five years, he was superintendent of the horticultural interests of the Homestake Mining Company. He came to Manitoba in 1904 and settled at Brandon where he established a florist business.

In October 1900, he married Catherine McKay at Leeds, South Dakota. They had five children, two of whom were surviving by 1913: John Angus Hutton and Alice Jane Hutton.
