John TUTCHIN of 'The Observator' friend of Daniel Defoe

Journal by joboy

TUTCHIN, JOHN (1661?-1707), whig pamphleteer was born about 1661, probably in Hampshire or the Isle of Wight (ef. Observator, iii. No. 87). He himself says (ib. 17 to 20 May, 8 to 12 July 1704) that he was born a freeman of the city of London, and that his father, grandfather, and several of his uncles were nonconformist ministers. No doubt he was nearly related to the Rev. Robert TUTCHIN of Newport, Isle of Wight, who, like his three sons, was ejected in 1662 (Palmer, The Nonconformists Memorial, 1802, 8. 349, ii. 262, 275-6). Tutchin seems to have been at school in Stepney, and is said by a distractor to have been expelled for stealing (The Devil turned Limner, 1704)....
