Anne Hutchinson (1591 - 1643) was a midwife and key figure in an event in the Massachusetts Bay colony that led to the development of religious freedom in the Thirteen Colonies.
Born Anne Marbury, she grew up in Alford, England. She emigrated to New England in 1634, quickly becoming the host of popular meetings on religion. She was active in criticizing all local ministers, becoming disliked among Church members. In 1637, she was tried for slander and disturbing the peace for voicing her religious opinions. She was convicted and banished from the colony, and was excommunicated from the Church a few months later.
Almost 75 years after her exile, her former residence burned down in the Great Fire of 1711. In its place, the Old Corner Bookstore was built, a building where famous American publisher Ticknor and Fields was based and famous authors such as Charles Dickens, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow frequently visited.
Anne Hutchinson is mentioned only in Fallout 4.
