James Hutcheon was born in Edinburgh in 1823. He first appeared in the classified directory in 1856 as a turner. His son, William, apparently followed in his footsteps.
They may have sold the business, because in 1911 the listing is for Hutcheon and Smith. The following year there is a listing for James Smith, bagpipe maker, successor to J and W Hutcheon.
I have found his bagpipe made in the typical Edinburgh style, generally with button mounts, nickel ferrules, and wood bushings. I imagine that they would have found the going difficult opposite the Glen makers. I didn't realize I had so many pictures of their bagpipes until I began working on this page.
