Default Is this the right Hutchinson?

Hi, Im very much the novice and am interested in finding out a bit about the witness George Hutchinson. In the census 1881, I have come across a George Hutchinson living on Spencer Street St George in The East London, listed as married to Margaret and occupation a butcher. It was a bit harder finding him in the 1891, but I believe him to then be living in Ratcliff London, now with two children, George and Eliza. By the time the 1901 is published, his wife and eldest child are living in Newington London, his son is also a butcher. George by this time is lodging (which I know sometimes can just mean visiting-he is still listed as married, although Margaret lists as "living on her own means") at a different address in Newington.

Is this the George Hutchinson who came forward as a witness to MJK please?

Thank you!!

Not sure, The fact that he lived down near Breezers Hill where Mary Jane Kelly lived makes it possible. He said he had known her about three years.

Here is his signature from wedding.

Thanks very much Pat! I think I was unsure as I am sure I remember reading somewhere that the George Hutchinson who gave a statement gave his occupation as a labourer, and then elsewhere that he wore military type dress (although I am less sure on the latter!)

I did wonder how likely a married man would be to come forward and admit knowing a prostitute, is there anything else known about the George who approached the police at all?

Im grateful for the wedding info, I am a but hit and miss on the search malarkey at the moment! Was there ever a sample of the Hutchinson signature (I know some believe that the signature on the statement was not signed by him but on his behalf)

Thanks so much Pat, you've been a star!

No worries Pat, sorry just couldn't help myself, I keep thinking It's Sunday today when it is Saturday, but that's probably just because it's the 2nd day off work, yipeee.
