Thomas Joseph Hutchinson (1820–85) was an Anglo-Irish explorer, born at Stonyford County Kilkenny Ireland. He studied medicine. After a trip to West Africa in 1851, he was chief surgeon on the Niger expedition (1854–55). After two years as English Consul at the Bight of Biafra and Fernando Po, he became governor of the latter place (1857) and in 1861 was transferred to the consulate at Rosario in Argentina, where he took part in the Salado expedition of 1862. In 1870 he was appointed Consul at Callao and three years later retired to his Irish home. He wrote:
