History

Alfred Hutchings was born in Leeds County, Ontario in 1851 and came west in 1875. He worked for five years as a trader with the indigenous peoples in the area north of Edmonton with his younger brother, Thomas Gifford Hutchings. In 1880 he took up farming, originally in the Bittern Lake area and married Agnes Cram of Carleton Place ON. They returned west in the fall, travelling part of the way from Manitoba in the company of Frank Oliver and his press, and James Ross (hardware company). They spent the first winter in Bittern Lake, but the following year moved north of Edmonton to homestead in the Poplar Lake area. The Hutchings raised dairy cattle as well as farming grains. They raised eight children on the farm, 5 daughters and 3 sons. Alfred Hutchings died in 1905 and Agnes Hutchings moved with her daughters to Edmonton in 1907. The sons remained to farm the land.
