Early life and education
Hutton was born at Marske near Richmond in Yorkshire, the second son of John Hutton of Marske (great-great-grandson of Matthew Hutton, Archbishop of York 1595–1606) and his wife Dorothy, daughter of William Dyke. He was educated at Ripon Grammar School and Jesus College, Cambridge, graduating in 1713. He was a fellow of Christ's College, Cambridge, from 1717 to 1727, and became a Doctor of Divinity in 1728.
Hutton became a royal chaplain to George II in 1736. In 1737 he was appointed Canon of the second stall at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, a position he held until 1739. He became Rector of Trowbridge and of Spofforth, in Yorkshire, and held prebends at York and Westminster.
