Hutchinson was a regicide, one of the 59 Commissioners who signed the death warrant of Charles I in 1649. During the English Civil War he joined the Parliamentarian army with his cousin, Henry Ireton, and led the defence of the city of Nottingham. On the Restoration of the monarchy in 1660, many regicides were executed for treason. Others were hunted down and assassinated, exiled or locked up. The bodies of those who had already died, such as Oliver Cromwell and Henry Ireton, were exhumed and then publicly hanged, beheaded and thrown into a pit.
